Headquartered in Orlando, Florida, Belacon Enterprises, LLC is a supply chain management company providing warehousing and transportation coverage throughout North America. Today the Belacon network features over 150 warehouses with over 22 million square feet of space in every major market.
Belacon’s original accounting software was unable to keep pace with its exponential growth. The lack of communication between the accounting application and Belacon’s warehouse management and transportation software packages necessitated a manual process that was prone to duplicate or missing data entries. Belacon needed to streamline its accounting process to prevent a loss of revenue. Reporting was also an issue; for example, Belacon’s previous software application could not show profitability by region on a weekly basis.
Belacon chose Microsoft Dynamics NAV as their end-to-end solution because of its power and scalability to accommodate future growth both in the US and Europe. Columbus provided an in-depth needs analysis into their Third Party Logistics business followed by a swift two-month implementation which encompassed:
Automating NAV’s invoicing process to integrate with Belacon’s core software solutions
Increasing visibility into encumbered vs. unencumbered revenue
Implementing intercompany processing.
Belacon has been live on Microsoft Dynamics NAV since January 2011.
Columbus was very positive and professional. Our scalability issues were solved and because of a quick implementation time table our dependency on outsourced accounting assistance has dropped over 75%.
