TC Petroleum, founded in 1980, is based in Lakewood, New Jersey. TC Petroleum is a motor oil distributor serving northern New Jersey and the metropolitan New York areas. Its small staff – nine employees makes it imperative to ensure that each individual is able to work as efficiently as possible. The company’s growth and local competition highlighted the inadequacy of their current software solution.
TC Petroleum had been getting by with manual bookkeeping and computers running DOS to manage their inventory. Their business processes were being outstripped by the growth in their sales. There was a lot of paperwork involved in the operations of receiving oil and pumping it into tanks and pails based on customer orders. The inefficiency of their systems created a backlog of paperwork. Inventory processes were time consuming and the reports could be inaccurate. The staff wasn’t knowledgeable about newer business software solutions and its ability to improve these problems. Their accountant recommended that TC Petroleum start looking for a software package that would integrate their business processes.
TC Petroleum’s accountant referred them to eIS Business Solutions. After a much discussion and a business needs assessment, eIS team member Robert Smith suggested moving up to Microsoft Dynamics GP, based on its pricing and easy learning curve. Some new computers were purchased and the solution was implemented. Learning the new system was the main challenge. Three employees were chosen to train on the new solution. The transition from the old system was uneventful, and the new trainees were able to deploy the business operations with a minimum of disruption to operations of the company.
- Computerized Bookkeeping: With Microsoft Dynamics GP, the bookkeeping functions are uncomplicated and more accurate.
- Faster Order Processing: Orders can be generated 50% faster than with TC Petroleum’s original outdated software solution.
- Reduced Paperwork: Since all of their financial and inventory processes are integrated with Dynamics GP, paperwork has been reduced by 30%.
- Reliable and Accurate Inventory: The new inventory system is simpler than the original, yet provides greater detail. Accuracy has improved by 25%.
Microsoft Dynamics is a line of integrated, adaptable business management solutions that enables you and your people to make business decisions with greater confidence. Microsoft Dynamics works like familiar Microsoft software such as Microsoft Office, which means less of a learning curve for your people, so they can get up and running quickly and focus on what’s most important. And because it is from Microsoft, it easily works with the systems your company already has implemented.
By automating and streamlining financial, customer relationship and supply chain processes, Microsoft Dynamics brings together people, processes and technologies, increasing the productivity and effectiveness of your business, and helping you drive business success.
