IFS goes live in less than 4 months in Otter Asia as scheduled

(9 May 2005, Hong Kong)

IFS goes live in less than 4 months in Otter Asia. The project in Otter Controls has been divided into 2 phases (Phase 1 for Manufacturing and Distribution modules and phase 2 for Financial modules). Phase 1 of the project was officially kicked off on 21 Jan 2005 for the operations in Hong Kong and Shenzhen simultaneously. With dedicated support from both the client side and the consultant side, the project team has a good mix of experts in different functional areas. The management of Otter Controls has also made prompt decision on the implementation approach such as conforming to the standard functions and reports of IFS system which greatly helped the effectiveness and efficiency of the implementation process. ECL has helped carrying out the management study, business process mapping, user training, user practice support, user acceptance test and live run preparation support.

The next phase (IFS Financials) will start in June 2005.

About Otter Control
Otter Controls Limited was founded in 1946 to manufacture 'snap-action' thermostats under a new and fundamentally different patent for a three legged bimetal blade which, in various developed forms, is still in use today.

The Otter Group is still a privately owned company with mature manufacturing plants in two locations in Derbyshire and St Davids of the United Kingdom. Recently in December 2004, Otter opened up the third factory in Shenzhen, China in view of the need to provide quicker response to its customers which are mainly electric appliances manufacturers with factories in Asia, especially China.
