FOR MORE INFORMATION
Established in 1886 as a small plumbing and boiler-making enterprise, Varley Pty Ltd is now a major advanced engineering company with operations in Queensland, Victoria, New South Wales and Indonesia.
Varley design, manufacture, service and repair across a wide range of industries: from defence and aerospace, rail services, power services, specialised vehicles and electric vehicle to marine and industrial.
“Varley is a dynamic and fast growing business operating with multiple locations and divisions,” says Greg Casey, the company’s ERP project manager.
“Creating visibility across those divisions to better manage our costs and make informed decisions was critical to us”.
In 2009, Varley felt the compelling need for an embedded Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system in order to continue their organic growth. The company conducted a very thorough and extensive selection process. Epicor was unanimously the clear leader in functionality and ease of use.
“We were very impressed by the reference sites we visited and the remarks they made on both the ongoing support COGITA provided them and the ease and self management of the system which lowered the total costs of ownership,” said Greg.
“COGITA’s 20+ years experience in implementing ERP systems to manufacturing companies, which was extensively proven during our selection process, gave us the confidence to take this new ERP step,” said Greg.
“Epicor will provide us with that visibility and traceability in a single database written in Microsoft.net. It’s the technology that will steer us well into the future.”
