Idelco Insulation, a Belgian family company that produces insulation materials for the construction industry, is implementing an ERP system to automate and digitize its production and processes as efficiently as possible.

Automation and digitization

Idelco Insulation chose to implement SAP best practices. This allowed essential functionalities to be realized within the predetermined deadline of four months, within budget and in line with the scope. In a second phase, an automated AGV pallet warehouse was also implemented, supported by SAP EWM warehouse management.

The successful integration of the ERP application is largely due to the efficiency of the internal team and the crucial contribution of the SAP implementation partner Expertum Consulting.

Scalable solutions

The robust ERP package streamlined daily operations and transactions and facilitated integration. Because the integrated system replaced Excel spreadsheets and other tools, operational efficiency in the back office was significantly improved.

Thanks to the new ERP system, Idelco Insulation experienced a significant increase in productivity and a reduction in costs. In addition, the application offers additional benefits for the entire organization ranging from the sales, purchasing, production and accounting departments. The platform also provides flexibility for future optimizations and expansions, in line with the organization's growth.

Future expansions

"Thanks to the SAP design, we can guarantee efficient and fast implementation when setting up new production lines or new sites in our international environment," says Filip Vandenweghe, CEO of Idelco Insulation.

"Going forward, we want to further maximize our investment with SAP by increasing the level of automation and digitization, and improving operational efficiency in the back office, planning and procurement," he concludes.

This project won the Gold Best of Customer Success Award 2023 of SAP in the Rapid Time to Value category.
