CareWare Systems to Implement Sage 300 ERP for Manufacturing Joint Venture in Malaysia

January 15, 2013 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology News
Petaling Jaya, Malaysia January 15, 2012 CareWare Systems Sdn Bhd, the top Sage software reseller in Malaysia for three years running, announced today it has been selected to implement Sage 300 ERP Premium Edition for a joint venture between Careglove Global Sdn Bhd and Descarpack Descartaveis Do Brasil LTDA.

Careglove Global Sdn Bhd is a subsidiary of the Careplus Group of Companies, which is listed on the ACE market on the Bursa Malaysia. Careplus Group is an investment holding company that engages in the manufacturing and trade of medical gloves in Malaysia, North America and South America. Descarpack Descartaveis Do Brasil is a major medical supplies distributor in Brazil and throughout South America. Careglove Global is a joint venture between Careplus Group and Descarpack Descartaveis Do Brasil to undertake the manufacturing and marketing of disposable medical gloves for the market in Brazil.

According to Leslie Lim, Finance Manager at Careglove Global, a major reason Sage 300 ERP was selected was due to CareWare Systems' ability to show how Sage 300 addresses the end-to-end needs of a multinational manufacturing joint venture. "Product costing is critical and Sage 300 gives us the ability to track costing by Lot even as raw material prices may fluctuate," Mr. Lim said. "Multi-currency functionality and a seamless cradle-to-grave accounting of our operations made Sage 300 the most compelling choice among the ERP systems we reviewed."

The software implementation project is expected to be completed by 1 March 2013 according to Robert Tan, CEO and founder of CareWare Systems. "Sage 300 will provide Careglove Global a complete ERP platform that integrates manufacturing, inventory control, financial accounting and real-time reporting with a minimum of customization and deployment time," said Mr. Tan. "Careglove Global will also have 30 users accessing Sage 300 from two facilities, which means Sage 300's native Internet-ready infrastructure will offer a truly seamless, real-time experience."

The Careglove Group's ERP selection team, some of whom flew in from as far away as Brazil, emphasized the need for an ERP solution that could respond to rapidly changing market conditions. "New advances in materials and constant global competition means the manufacturing joint venture has to have a system that accommodates a rapidly changing market," noted Mr. Tan. "Sage 300 has a strong manufacturing, operations and accounting foundation that will enable the joint venture to monitor its operations across the globe real-time. Effective business decisions have to be made based on timely and accurate data. Sage 300's ability to organize data from across the enterprise with its core business reporting and analytics module is a major reason why Sage is so popular among the top companies in Malaysia today."
