Success StoryV&F Transformer
Partners in Technology “Transforms” System for V&F Transformer
Established in 1962, V&F Transformer manufactures the very finest in electronic transformer products that are used in applications such as lighting, signal, video games, controls and instrumentation, and a host of other products and components. As a family-owned company, they pride themselves on quality design and a close working relationship with their customers.
For many years, V&F Transformer ran their operation on an old DOS-based software application. However, as the business grew and operations became more complex, this proprietary system could no longer provide the detailed tracking, reporting, and analysis required to run the business effectively. They were creating work orders by hand because it was quicker and easier than using the system… but too often the paperwork was misplaced or lost which delayed jobs and affected delivery dates. To make matters worse, they were forced to create journal entries and manually transfer data into Peachtree in order to manage accounts payable and receivables, and to generate financial reports. The breaking point finally came when the owners laid out an aggressive plan to double the business within a few years.
“Everyone realized that it [the business growth plan] could not be done without a new system to lay the foundation for a more efficient and profitable operation.”Leeann Millar
