Andis Company Enhances Visibility, Cash Flow, and Customer Service   

Andis’ on-prem legacy system undermined the company’s day-to-day operations. MCA Connect helped the 100-year-old manufacturer improve visibility, reduce inventory, and establish an integrated modern platform with Dynamics 365 and Power Platform.    

“MCA Connect has a lot of experience with discrete manufacturing. So, when we talk to them about problems we’re trying to solve, they’ve likely had those problems come up before. They’re able to come to the table with best practices, and ideas that have worked at other companies.”
