Datecs has been managing its successful business for 20 years with the help of an ERP solution implemented by Team VISION Bulgaria. Relying on Microsoft Dynamics NAV, the company manages all its core business processes related to cash flow, accounting, sales, purchases and deliveries, warehouse and manufacturing.

Datecs is a leading manufacturer and developer of innovative POS solutions. The company’s product lines include mobile payment systems, printers, cash registers, barcode readers, and peripheral devices.
Datecs marks its beginning in the early 1990 when a group of passionate researchers from the Institute of Applied Cybernetics at the Bulgarian Academy of Science got together. Initially, Datecs was developing Cyrillic support for MS Windows. It became so popular that in 1997 Microsoft acquired a license for its distribution.
In 1994 Datecs entered the ECR market by collaborating with Samsung. But not long after, in 1996 Datecs presented to the world its first ECR, the MP500. In just a few years, over 100,000 devices were sold in 11 countries, making it a symbol for fiscal devices in Central and Eastern Europe.
Scope of the implemented ERP solution
The implementation of Microsoft Dynamics NAV in Datecs, Datecs Trading and Datecs Mapping Services covers all processes related to the management of cash flows, accounting, sales, purchases, supply, storing and manufacturing. For the purposes of effective human resource management, Team VISION Bulgaria developed and implemented additional HR and payroll modules.
The ERP system allows for the preparation of weekly order-based production schedule and calculation of all supplies and raw materials, necessary for production. Thus the ERP solution completely replaces numerous software systems, previously used in different divisions of the company.
As a result of the implementation the following benefits are achieved:
- Real-time reporting of production orders (as opposed to previously reporting with a month delay)
- Strict control over stocks
- Control of the actual production cost and tracking of used materials
- Production planning
- Ability to calculate the estimated cost of production which allows for conducting analyses of future production costs
- Adequate decision making based on reports and analyses by regions, dealers, departments, types of expenses and types of products
- Substantial improvement of the relations with suppliers and dealers.
``The implementation of Microsoft Dynamics NAV in our company helped organize the manufacturing, purchases and sales in one complete cycle in which mistakes are virtually impossible.``
