“From its inception in 1967, Ren-Wil applied a successful controlled growth strategy that allowed us to expand and innovate without compromising quality or customer service,” explained Ren-Wil Chief Financial Officer Albert Sayegh. “Although our growth has been strong, we eventually realized that our ability to remain on track would be centered on integrating systems. We established a comprehensive plan that would catapult our systems to the forefront of technology. Using advanced Business Intelligence (BI) and state-of-the-art supply chain solutions, we are able to successfully drive our business to the next level. Today, we’re continuously improving productivity and efficiency in the import and distribution of home décor products thanks to Visual 2000 International ERP and PLM systems.”

Visual ERP.net will manage the order to cash processes, improve supply chain collaboration and execution, and improve accuracy and efficiency of warehousing and distribution activities.
Visual 2000 Canada Sales Director Alain Perez added, “We are pleased to be working with Ren-Wil. Like many other growing companies, they have come to recognize how fully integrated systems can eliminate the gaps in process visibility and functional capabilities that are common with independent or loosely connected business systems. We look forward to helping them to achieve their current and future business goals.”
