GMCS project for ABI PRODUCT was chosen as the best IT project in the Global CIO contest

Global CIO, the largest official community of the Russian CIOs, announced the winners of the annual contest "Project of the Year 2018". The GMCS project for ABI PRODUCT, one of the largest meat processing companies in Russia, won as the “The best regional project” in Central Federal District. 

More than 260 IT projects from Russia and CIS were submitted to the contest this year. The nominated projects were assessed directly by CIOs themselves using online voting based upon a balanced methodology for project evaluation created by the industry experts and approved by the IT community. The contest results were announced at the awards ceremony, which took place on January 30, 2019, in Moscow.

The large-scale warehouse & logistics automation project for ABI PRODUCT based on Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3 has been carried out within the framework of modernization of management. In addition to warehouse and transport logistics, the automation included financial management processes, integration with external information systems (EDI and mobile sales) and analytical reporting. The solution was implemented in the head office in Vladimir and the warehouse in Yaroslavl.

The most interesting feature of the project is the transition to a new system without any breaks through 24x7 service of the warehouse. Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3 was integrated with specialized warehouse equipment (data collection terminals, weighing equipment). The sales processes include the possibility of flexible work with each client on the basis of the available assortment matrix. Automated pricing processes, sales order management and balancing mechanism allow you to automatically reserve the stock on hand or on the road, taking into account customer requirements.

“Congratulations to ABI PRODUCT! It is a well-deserved victory in the competition. We are pleased that our joint project was so highly appreciated by the country's leading IT directors”, said Tatyana Tsareva, Head of Management Solutions Division, GMCS.

“Project of the Year” is the first Russian IT industry contest, where the achievements are assessed directly by the CIOs themselves. The Global CIO contest is supported by the Union of CIOs of Russia (SoDIT), Information & Computer Technologies Industry Association (APKIT), RUSSOFT Association and others. GMCS projects have repeatedly won in the contest.
