I came across a story about a cement company in Africa running one of our solutions today and couldn't help but think of one of my dad's favourite jokes, "what do you get if you cross a chicken with a cement mixer – a brick layer!" All joking aside what is really set in stone (sorry couldn't resist that one either) is that we beat off stiff competition from two other major ERP vendors and saved our customer a few mixers full of money.
United Cement Company of Nigeria (UNICEM) operates the most technically advanced cement plant south of the Sahara. The company needed a modern business process management system to comply with new reporting standards and improve controls. After considering SAP and JD Edwards software, UNICEM opted for Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009, which was implemented for 45 per cent less than the cost of deploying SAP, and exceeded targets set by UNICEM.
