About the Client: Corel Corporation
Do you remember COREL from back in the days? Well, Corel Corporation is a leading global software company with over 100 million users. Based in Ottawa, Canada, they provide full-featured, easy-to-use productivity, graphics, and digital imaging software.
Looking for a Centralized ERP Solution
COREL faced a number of challenges as they approached the necessary replacement of their original legacy enterprise management system. They wanted to simplify how it managed finances, but with numerous business lines and global vendors spanning multiple countries. The ability to operate in different currencies, comply with international tax laws, and produce accurate reporting was paramount. Additionally, they needed a cloud solution that would display real-time inventory and prices for resellers.
Strategy: While they had considered upgrading the current system, licensing costs would have equalled the cost of implementation. Additionally, the legacy system would have required two to three years to roll out, while NetSuite could be implemented in less than 8 months.
They chose us for the implementation, given our reputation for supporting global companies operating in multiple currencies. Our strategy for this NetSuite customer was simple: Combine all instances into a single database that updates in real-time, while providing room to customize currency and market details.
Process: We combined eleven (11) instances into a single database and replaced all of the connections with their legacy system via integration updates. We helped reduce ERP implementation costs by facilitating the execution of an extensive data migration plan. We trained the Corel team so that they could do some of the work in-house.
