How Fuuz Helped an Automotive Supplier Succeed

This global manufacturer with annual revenues of approximately $1 billion makes interior components for the automotive industry.

Key Success Factors

  • Solve several functional gaps with current ERP and Plant floor data systems.
  • Build a proprietary chemical mixing solution for a facility in China.
  • Solve custom document requirements for automotive OEMs in Europe.
  • Create custom mobile applications to aid in the staging/loading and pallet building to meet OE requirements.
  • Use Fuuz as the global MES/IoT Platform.

After 18 months of evaluating software solutions to meet their needs, this automotive supplier decided on Fuuz. 

They found that the depth and breadth of the Fuuz MES Platform would allow them to replace a minimum of six other antiquated internal software systems. Instead of purchasing custom mixing software for a new acquisition in China, they learned they could build any application they needed directly within the Fuuz Platform. 

Fuuz closed several functional gaps in their ERP system using the platform tool Browser Extension. Connecting their ERP system to the Fuuz Platform in real time enabled them to access the data needed to meet exacting customer requirements. 

Since then, the automotive supplier has also implemented custom mobile scanning solutions with Fuuz to meet the needs of BMW and VW in their German facilities. 

Finally, the platform tool Screen Designer has proven immensely valuable, eliminating the need for third-party solutions to generate locale-specific forms and documents that pull data from multiple disparate systems.
