KSIC Managing Director, GM-Procurement and GM-Production realized that they needed an ERP system if they have to continue growing. Being a government organization, they need to have control on overall process and keep a track of minutest details.
They were facing lot of wastage issues. They use pure gold zaris in their saris and other silk products. Wastage of gold zaris was a huge expense for them. It was becoming difficult for them to track the wastage which was resulting in huge cost and reduced profit margins.
They were also facing problems in managing and planning their inventory. They kept on procuring the items without knowing that the items are already available in plenty in their stocks.
They were using old legacy system to manage their process and most of these were controlled manually on paper sheets and card. The management team went on the hunt for a quality ERP solution that would fit their company’s custom needs at a fair price. KSIC also required a system that would integrate well with their existing process and could bring best practices to their process.
After careful vetting of various ERPs, the company went with Infopine’s ERP product iTexClouds. When iTexClouds first came on board it was a fantastic learning experience for KSIC team.

It was a digital transformation for KSIC.
