G&T Conveyor, reportedly the largest privately held U.S. manufacturer of airline baggage handling equipment and systems, is utilizing Glovia's extended ERP solution, glovia.com, to replace its multiple legacy systems and standardize the company onto a single enterprise solution.
Because no two baggage-handling systems are exactly alike, officials at the Tavares, Fla.-based company say, G&T must work with each customer's individual requirements.
"We really wanted a company that not only supported our [make-to-order] manufacturing needs but also has a relatively large corporate structure and customer base. We are not willing to wager our company's future on a smaller vendor that may not be around in three or four years," says Bill Roche, ERP team leader for G&T Conveyor. "With glovia.com, we're able to get away from customizing every component we have to manufacture and move to a more standardized environment that allows us to 'plug and play' to configure our products," Roche says.
