Cooper Software Selected by Vita Cellular Foams to Implement Global Business Management Solution, Netsuite Oneworld

Wednesday, 19 October 2016

Systems integration specialist, Cooper Software, has been selected by Vita Cellular Foams, a world-class producer of flexible polyurethane foams, to implement the cloud-based global business management solution, NetSuite OneWorld at their new standalone manufacturing facility in China. The new facility will support the Company’s expanding Chinese customer base.

Vita Cellular Foams, manufactures flexible polyurethane foams for many varied applications, focusing on two key markets; comfort applications such as furniture and bedding; and technical applications such as automotive, aviation and industrial markets.

Cooper Software proposed NetSuite OneWorld as the perfect fit for the new Chinese manufacturing facility, as the Company required a multi-language, multi-currency financial and manufacturing solution that could be accessed and supported from their headquarters Manchester. An ideal solution for light manufacturing companies, NetSuite OneWorld can also fully support the Company’s supply chain needs - pulling raw material from suppliers in the UK and Europe and providing a mechanism that will allow them to report the conversion of this material into finished product.  The solution is also able to uphold the local sales and distribution of these finished products to their customers. In addition, NetSuite OneWorld will provide a fully functioning Accounts Receivable and Accounts Payable Solution, adhering to local Chinese Tax reporting requirements. Furthermore, the system offers a fully functioning finance solution to ensure that the new plant in China can report back to the UK head office, in real time, ensuring consistent, compliant management across the organisation both locally and globally.

Cooper Software have developed the solution further, tailoring it to the particular needs of Vita Cellular Foams through the addition of NetSuite’s Work Orders and Assembly Management modules which provide key capabilities for light manufacturing companies.

The project is a significant business win for Cooper Software and builds on their previous experience in successfully delivering NetSuite implementation projects for global clients. Vita Cellular Foams have been so impressed with NetSuite, they are currently investigating deploying the solution in existing manufacturing plants in Eastern Europe.

Paul Morton, Head of IT for Vita Cellular Foams commented: “When Cooper Software introduced us to NetSuite and demonstrated the solution, we quickly realised that it could successfully meet the multi-language and multi currency needs of our new manufacturing facility, while still being accessible and highly visible from the UK. This, coupled with Cooper Software’s experience and expertise in delivering similar NetSuite implementation projects, gives us confidence that the solution will successfully integrate with our business.”

Frank Cooper, Founder and Managing Director of Cooper Software noted: “We are delighted to be working with Vita Cellular Foams to implement NetSuite OneWorld at their new Chinese manufacturing facility. NetSuite OneWorld is an efficient and scalable solution that can easily be adapted and customised to meet individual customer needs, ensuing it is a practical, long-term solution.”
