Ivaper automates production processes with 1С:ERP

IVAPER group is one of the leading manufacturers of specialized PVC systems for translucent structures in Russia. IVAPER production facilities are on a site of over 20,000 m2 in St. Petersburg. The management of the group representative office OOO Kompaniya Profil has decided to automate the calculation of cost and production processes. The company already used the following software programs: MS Excel, 1С: Accounting 2.0, 1С: Trade Management 10.3. Awara IT was chosen as a partner for process automation. As recommended by the integrator, it was decided to use 1С: ERP 2.4 as this software program best suits IVAPER needs. An important criterion for the automation process was to change the standard functionality as little as possible. The following tasks were completed successfully during the implementation of this project: The master data directory was revised and systematized to take into account the specifics of each type of product; The accounting of finished products was organized by storage units (range characteristics); The procedure for registration and calculation of release of defective products and raw materials was changed; A document for Transfer Between Shifts used to record production volumes for a specific piece of equipment was developed; Specialized reports were created for analysis of production accounting data, data on balances in various units of measurement; Workplaces were set up for shift foreman and production workers; The automatic issuance of documents for product movement upon scanning of barcode labels was revised and improved; Synchronization between all accounting systems was adjusted; Key users were trained. Awara IT experts and the IVAPER team conducted an audit of business processes. On the back of this audit, ineffective chains of actions performed by process participants were identified and changed. As part of this project, we provided technical advice on complex issues of production accounting and cost calculation in 1C: ERP. We also updated 1С: Enterprise Accounting version 2.0 to version 3.0 and 1С: Payroll and HR Management version 2.5 to version 3.1. Automation also allowed us to identify and rectify major problems in production processes. Thanks to the introduction of a production accounting subsystem, the risk of human errors is now minimized, which is the most important aspect of operational work. The company management receives objective information about the structure of costs for finished products. The appearance of tools for analysis of defective products allows eliminating inefficient production operations and significantly reducing costs. It is planned to transfer trade accounting and production planning to 1. With 15 automated workplaces, the system was put into commercial operation in January 2019.

Microsoft Teams is 2 years old. And delivers new experiences for the intelligent workplace

Microsoft Teams has turned 2 years old not long ago. Awara IT team has selected the most interesting product updates and shares them with you. Customized backgrounds  Working remotely becomes more and more popular among professionals but if you are about to have a video call its not always a good idea to have your house view or train view at the background. Customized background is an irreplaceable option in this case. Content cameras and Intelligent Capture Using any USB camera will help you “read” information from the whiteboard. Teams also offers Intelligent Capture to input data, focus, changing image size and improving image and text quality. Intelligent settings will recognize your content even if there is a person standing in front of the whiteboard. Taking part in meetings remotely will be even more productive. Microsoft Whiteboard  Microsoft Whiteboard simplifies meetings with remote employees and those in office. This functionality automatically sends out content from the whiteboard itself to the digital whiteboard. So far this functionality is available in preview mode only. Information barriers avoid conflicts of interest within your organization by limiting which individuals can communicate and collaborate with each other in Microsoft Teams. This helps limit the disclosure of information by controlling communication between the holders of information and colleagues representing different interests. It also helps to solve other telecommunication issues. Data Loss Prevention in chats and conversations enables customers to detect, automatically protect, and screen for sensitive information in chats and channel conversations. By creating DLP policies, admins can help prevent sensitive information from unintentionally being shared or leaked—either inside or outside of the organization. Messages in chats or groups are checked for the sensitive information according to the policies of your company. If that sensitive information has been identified then the message with this info is blocked and is no longer available for the recipients. Teams will provide user with the information about the blocked message. Security policies are managed and controlled correspondingly, say according to the feedback from users.

Agricultural holding uses Microsoft Power BI to prepare operational reporting

Customer Agricultural holding “Vyborzhets” is the largest supplier of vegetables and herbs in the North-Western region. The total area of all its enterprises occupies 850 hectares. Products are presented in St. Petersburg, Moscow, Murmansk, Arkhangelsk, Petrozavodsk, Naryan-Mare and Vologda. In 2000 “Vyborzhets” was included in top-300 best agricultural enterprises of Russia. The company is equipped with the latest technological equipment and opens new production facilities.   Challenges “Vyborzhets” is one of the largest representatives of the agricultural business, so it has to meet specific reporting requirements. In addition, industry features complicate the process of reporting – calculation and analysis of yields is non-standard and complex. Accounting is conducted by several systems that do not allow to automatically generate management reports without significant time investments and the risk of errors in reports prepared manually. To meet these requirements, our customer needed a tool that would provide flexible analytics and at the same time would not affect operational activities of the enterprise. As company’s management team was already very well familiar with Microsoft solutions, Power BI became the best candidate for this project.   Results The company’s management team uses Power BI mobile daily to know the current situation and faster decision-making. The issue of correct calculation of yield is solved. The calculations are presented in the form of dashboards and adapted for mobile devices, the design and color design of the solution is proposed. Production analytics was formed. Dashboards with high-level indicators and key business indicators were prepared. Numerous reports on the quantity and quality of products produced per day, reports on the formation of reporting for a certain period have been developed. The project is on-going: financial statements preparation is implemented, sales analytics is underway. Automation of management reporting is planned.
