“RKL eSolution’s knowledge of custom features helped us bring improvements across all departments”
—Isabel Martin, President
Businessworks - outdated technology
Flight Light was outgrowing and constrained by their BusinessWorks solution, impacting performance and delivery. Outdated technology required manual system interventions in areas such as Inventory and Bill of Materials (BOM) management and processing, consuming valuable time which could have otherwise been applied to manufacturing and business development.
transitioning beyond sage businessworksFlight Light needed a solution that was strong in accounting but also supported multi-level BOMs. When it came to migrating to another product, non-Sage solutions were considered. Flight Light recognized the value-add of the configurations and functionality within the Sage 100 product and ultimately chose to stay within the Sage family. It was also important to them that RKL eSolutions understood both products.
post-implementation process & improvementsMigrating all of Flight Light’s data from BusinessWorks to Sage 100 was a big undertaking. Flight Light’s active role in system testing and completing trial runs helped speed implementation. Their shared ownership with RKL of the project allowed Flight Light to go live more smoothly and ahead of schedule!
Key benefits Flight Light is capitalizing on include significantly improved internal workflows, a recognized 40% improvement in production delivery times, and increased customer satisfaction. Empowered by systems which embrace current technology, and with RKL eSolutions consulting at their side, Flight Light executive management continues driving existing and new business in current and expanded markets.
