KT as he was fondly known to all – You always help us to lift our spirits high; inspire us meaningfully through your guidance; the direction that you provide to us so many times; so very thoughtfully; that enables us to understand so much more. Your attitude truly encourages us to carve our niche; attend to each endeavor meaningfully and purposefully with complete responsibility. KT you are a Great Teacher; you teach us so much and in such simple; easy to understand ways that we are truly thankful. We, at Ygl would most certainly wish to take this opportunity to acknowledge your immense contributions at each and every stage gratefully. Yglian, KT would not want us to be somber and sad as we remember him, but always upbeat as he was, keen to pursue the next project.

“Ygl was chosen for this project by UMW firstly because the ERP system was offered to UMW at a much lower maintenance cost. Secondly, Ygl has efficient resources to ensure a smooth implementation and support service, thus, enabling UMW to save cost and time during the process of implementing the system.”

UMW case study Setting the strategy

Getting business specific

Doing business better

For UMW, the leading industry drivers for remaining competitive are meeting customer expectations in the areas of quality, cost, delivery and execution of engineering changes. In addition to the need to provide the highest quality, meet target costs, and efficiently execute a flurry of engineering changes, another tremendous challenge that UMW faces is the constant change in delivery dates.

Before investigating several ERP systems , UMW decided that it needed an integrated system on which to run all of its business processes—from order entry to field service, and financial consolidation—and eliminate several different legacy systems and applications requiring separate access. Finally, UMW sought a cost-effective system that offered added value.

As UMW searches for new ways to streamline its processes and maximize efficiency, the company seeks to consult Ygl.

After running on the enterprise resource planning (ERP) Baan IV system since 1999, UMW concluded that although it had optimized its legacy system capabilities, the application would not continue to meet the growing and evolving industry requirements.

“Ygl was chosen for this project by UMW firstly because the ERP system was offered to UMW at a much lower maintenance cost. Secondly, Ygl has efficient resources to ensure a smooth implementation and support service, thus, enabling UMW to save cost and time during the process of implementing the system.”, said Encik Mohamed Shaharudin.

UMW Group (MYX:4588) is one of the largest companies and also one of the leading industrial enterprises, serving the economies of Malaysia and the Asia-Pacific region. The UMW Group is a RM 9.9 billion company and ranks among the foremost corporations listed on the Bursa Malaysia. Its net assets exceed RM2.3 billion and its workforce numbers more than 11,000 employees serving customers through a nation-wide distribution

Encik Mohamed Shaharudin said “Ygl has a good track record with many customers having successfully used the software, and we’ve seen efficient and speedy support when it’s needed. And with service-oriented architecture, we believe Ygl can help us in the best way possible.”
