Salesforce Customer Success

Looking for a specific customer example of how Coacto solves challenges for customers using Ascent Solutions technology? Then watch this brief video about how Pro-Stretch solved ERP and packaging issues on Salesforce: 

Challenge

Pro-Stretch, a provider of trims for five of the largest sportswear manufacturers in the world, had challenges tracking and managing the manufacture, packaging and shipping of products from multiple Salesforce Sales Orders from a customer, with each order potentially having hundreds of Sales Order Lines. This required a bespoke adaptation within their existing Ascent ERP application.

Solution

Working closely with the manufacturing team at Pro-Stretch, our team of experts carefully designed a solution, which allowed packages to be created from across multiple Sales Order Lines from multiple open Sales Orders for any individual customer – all from one screen in their ERP application.

This then enabled the Pro-Stretch team to easily select the quantities for each of the package lines, and based on those, select from a standard set of pre-defined boxes which in turn, directed the packing teams on what to pack and in what type of box and quantity of boxes and can also be used to generate invoices for shipped products.

The successful implementation of this solution has been effective for Pro-Stretch to deliver against deadlines in a much more time efficient manner.
