Investment in rapid growth and international expansion At the beginning of 2017, NewIcon commissioned a comprehensive ERP system. The objective of the investment is to improve the efficiency of the company operations and improve its capacity in order to be able to respond to the global competition better. “The lead times of the products will be shorter. With improved quality and control, the online project data helps us plan the use of our resources more efficiently than before. This in turn enables a more precise predicted output,” Chief Operating Officer Juha Anttila, NewIcon Oy, explains.

All the core functions of New­ Icon have been integrated into the L7 ERP system delivered by Visma Oy. The system helps take care of project management and control, material handling, sales management, device control, maintenance operations coordination, quality control and financial administration. Another new feature is the cloud-based Visma LTR system for managing mobile work. It is particularly useful for the sales and maintenance personnel who often need information while on the move.

The Finnish origin of our products is visible in their high quality and operational reliability,” Marketing Director Jori-Matti Savolainen explains.
