Textile ERP implementation

Due to the growth and expansion of Gratacós, the previous software was obsolete and prevented the management of the new business areas.

From Cuatroochenta's business management software area, the first step was to analyse the situation and the client's needs, in order to plan the project while taking into account all the required customisations.

We developed and adapted our textile software and integrated it with Business Central in order to offer Gratacós an end-to-end ERP adapted to their business processes.
