1. Structuring and organizing data
When Vertex was using spreadsheets, the data was scattered and unorganized. They tried standardizing it, but always went off track. Without clear rules, people could modify data as they pleased and as a result, there were 16 different articles to describe one specific bolt, for example. Such situations caused confusion for both the purchasing and production teams, which in turn resulted in production errors, potential financial damage and customer credibility risk.
Life with Eziil
With implementing Eziil, Vertex tidied up their entire database and can count on it staying that way. Eziil's clear structure, unified database and connection between drawings and BOM (Bill of materials) lines creates a clear picture for all parties involved. Also, with the bulk edit tool, they can add specifications or additional information to specific product groups. For example, labeling bolts with ISO information in addition to DIN information, without rummaging through endless spreadsheets.
