Waterway Plastics designs, engineers and manufactures pool, bath and spa products. As the leading manufacturer and producer in the USA, Waterway Plastics uses only premium NSF-approved materials to meet all required certifications and standards. Located in Oxnard, California, Waterway Plastics has been committed to innovation and excellence since their inception in 1973.
Waterway Plastics required a custom ERP (enterprise resource planning) platform that encapsulated their unique business process and system workflows. Their existing ERP system had reached its end-of-life and could no longer support the business functionality that they required. An off-the-shelf product would not be sufficient for the company, therefore, they required a custom-designed platform. The new ERP system will include a significant process re-engineering effort that combines defining and designing new business solutions, significant updates to existing outdated processes, incorporating and improving two additional systems’ functionality as well as replicating existing workflows that were determined to not need changes. The new ERP system needed to include 13 distinct modules.
CPI solutions is providing strategic and tactical planning, definition, design, development and testing across the 13 modules, including:
The project has finalized the initial Discovery Phase and will continue into a second iteration utilizing the hybrid iterative approach that was initially started in the Definition Phase, featuring a simultaneous effort on defining and developing modules in an iterative manner.
"As soon as we started on the NetManage program with CPI, our network uptime and performance has improved and stabilized significantly. My employees now have real time access to CPI’s support desk with quick resolution to irritating desktop issues. Needless to say their support desk is very responsive and all of their engineers have been top notch. Thank you CPI!"
