What are the major challenges you solve for clients and could you give an example supporting the same?
Sandhya Organic Chemicals, one of our

clients who had 5 business wings, had all data in Accounting Software, only accounting was there and HO/Plants were on a separate system.Prior to implementation, there were several pain points, including difficulty in coordinating & communicating HO & plant operations, priority order delays, and manual IDOs (Internal Delivery Orders). Getting inventory data from the plant and entering it in the finance books was tedious and time-consuming. Also, plant data was imprecise. Due to this, accounts finalization used to be delayed at the end of the year, resulting in hefty penalties. Vendor bills from the plant were also sent to HO for payment. HO was not sure about Material receipt discrepancies like short qts, damaged qtys, and more, which led to delayed vendor payment. Also, short qty and other info communication were delayed hence post payment. Again, adjustment entries were required to be made adding extra entries.

With UG INFOTEK SAP Business One Implementation all IDOs are created by HO in the system which is readily available for Plant delivery planning. Communication and coordination of HO and Plant regrind Priority Orders improved, resulting in timely material delivery to customers. Inventory data is available in real time with SAP B1. It reduced the redundant task of entering inventory in Finance Books. Also, Plant implemented the Production module, so inventory is coming accurately. Accounts Finalization at the end of the year is no longer delayed, saving hefty penalties. Due to the centralized system, Vendor bills at the plant are not required to be sent to HO for payments. HO is able to see info about Material receipt discrepancies. Due to this vendor payments are not getting delayed and short qty and post payment no adjustment entries were required to be made, saving the user time and entries.

What is the future roadmap envisioned for UG Infotek?
I started this company with a vision of making our company a top-notch organization by catering to the needs of our clients. We are committed to providing world class services at affordable prices. In addition to the Thane headquarters, UG Infotek has a new branch in Pune.

Our mission and road map is clear. We are passionate and have a strong commitment to SMEs in India. We reckon that SMEs are what makes our economy grow. But because many still rely on the traditional system, they haven't realized their full potential. We want to empower at least 500 SMEs in India with world class ERP, SAP Business One, which will help them to propel their business to the next level.
