Case Study: Dimeca

“Waste & Recycling One gave Dimeca clarity on transport scheduling, purchasing, sales and delivery, inventory, stock movements and weighbridge transactions, integrated to SAP Business One.”

~ Miguel de la Garza, IT Director, Dimeca

Objectives

Dimeca wanted to replace their manual process with an integrated suite of operational components, which would manage their extensive transport, collection, inventory, transfer, payments, sales and delivery of ferrous and non-ferrous materials.

This also had to incorporate integrated transport management, planning and scheduling, replacing their spreadsheets.

  • The weighbridge integration supplies inbound and outbound materials’ weight, payment and charging confirmations; this means accurate planned vs. actual and 3rd party weighbridge reconciliation to all inventory and accounting transactions.
  • Inbound, outbound work orders and weighbridge confirmations are now integrated to materials receipt, purchasing and warehouse assignment in SAP – this has eradicated the manual inventory process.
