Over the last year there has been an accelerating shift in the digital focus and utilization of the digital potential towards more effective solutions. Below some examples of what has been accomplished:

Elkem has accomplished to use its full potential. This project will digitalize and automate the invoice handling process and save up to 5400 hours annually.

Successful DNB Bank integration project in Chicoutimi

Feedback from Steeve Barbeau, Finance Manager, Elkem Chicoutimi:

“The bank integration project has been a success for Chicoutimi in 2020. Some challenges were faced at the beginning with bank but the best decision we have taken was to move most of our payment to the DnB instead of trying to develop an interface with the CIBC. The process is much faster for the people that approve payment, couple of clicks versus signing 100 checks every week.” “All in all, we are happy to have implemented this and our customer prefer this solution.”

Digitalization internal invoice process

Digitalizing the internal invoice process for Elkem Accounting have saved significant amount of manual work and 900 invoices yearly will be handled digitally instead of manually.

Effective bank integration project in India

Recently a M3 bank integration project for Elkem India was completed in less than a month. This bank integration will save the Mumbai office and Nagpur plant annually 100 days of work. Lots of digitalization initiatives are in the pipeline for next year. We will keep you updated with more newsfeeds.

I 2019 satte Black Friday-salget ny rekord, akkurat som året før og det kan mest sannsynlig skje i år også. Ja, kanskje spesielt i år med Covid-19, da flere enn noen gang sannsynligvis vil handle mer på nett. Uansett vil 27. november være den største dagen i året for norsk detaljhandel. Dette får selskaper til å investere stort i systemer som kan skaleres slik at e-handelsløsningen, kassasystemet og lagerstyringen ikke blir overbelastet og bryter sammen.
I løpet av de siste årene har flere selskaper lagt til rette for eksternt arbeid gjennom skytjenester og samhandlingsverktøy for å forbedre produktiviteten og administrering av eksterne team. Og med det pågående Coronaviruskrisen (COVID-19), har de eksterne arbeidsplassene blitt enda mer aktuelle.
Elkem together with their strategic and operational IT-partner Columbus (former iStone), supports the daily operations in the ERP system Infor M3 and related applications in addition to continue implementation of M3 worldwide.
