The Bilişim Summit which carries its projects on digital platforms, brought the companies together in an event titled ‘The new Face of Digital Transformation’. One of speakers on the ‘Compulsory and Quality Transformation in Pandemic’ panel was Basar Demircan, General Manager of Reis Makina, a leading company in the sector that manages its processes with caniasERP. Demircan talked about the road map that his company followed during the pandemic and their digital transformation journey with caniasERP.
Reis Makina’s General Manager Basar Demircan at the panel where the coordinator of the Corporate Transformation Platform Coordinator M.Goker Sarp moderated, said “Reis Makina is a 100 year old company. We are distributor of almost 80 different global brands and also produce for them in Turkey.We have 1600 customers and 100,000 product types. We partner with over 100 vendors and over 100 import companies. Therefore, we have a large data pool. The technologies that we use, especially the ERP software allows us to collect, report, analzye reports and quickly make decisions in a crisis environment. As Reis Makine, we make decisions by evaluating the data that we have. These decision we make gets us one step closer. For this reason, we think that digital transformation is an imperative, not an option. The important thing is putting the human mind at the center and managing the data at hand and evaluating their outcomes.
Confirming that they have decided to continue their digital transformation journey with caniasERP, Demircan said, “It is almost impossible to manage large volume business processes and data analysis using outdated methods like ours. For this reason, we changed our ERP software last year and switched to caniasERP. The important thing in the digital transformation journey is to find software that can speak your language and meet your needs. We have acheived great success with the caniasERP project and went live in three months. We are now satisfied. We also received very positive returns from the dealer community. IAS is a company with high quality engineers which gives us an advantage. The software has great command of the way Turkish employees work, habits, procedures and deposit. The flexible structure also offers freedom of movement.
Speaking about the importance of digital transformation during the pandemic, Demircan said: “During this period, we saw how the data management we had with caniasERP made great contributions in our own processes and also on the customers side. When we embraced digital transformation, we created a common language not only in the reporting area, but also in our business processes in the relationship we established with our customers and partners. Thanks to the infrastructure we have established, our B2B connection in the internet sales environment and the mobile applications created by our marketing team during the pandemic. Studies such as product tracking, stock tracking, and the links we have established brought us to the forefront in this process. Despite all of this, we are making progress in terms of sales targets. In addition to the advantages that we gained, our managers, business leaders and shareholders have realized the importance of technology investments and how much value this adds to our company. Our experience during the pandemic has shed light on the future for us. For the next step, we will work to ensure that all suppliers, dealers and customers are more actively involve in digital transformation. We are planning to automate studies into procurement processes, advancing technology one step in payment system and much more.”
