Press	
  Release	
  
March	
  2013	
  
	
  
Unibor	
  drills	
  into	
  regulation	
  compliance	
  with	
  Microsoft	
  Dynamics	
  NAV	
  from	
  Azzure	
  IT	
  
	
  
To	
  meet	
  the	
  strict	
  compliance	
  demands	
  of	
  its	
  Japanese	
  parent,	
  Sheffield-­‐based	
  drilling	
  and	
  cutting	
  
machine	
  manufacturer	
  Universal	
  Drilling	
  &	
  Cutting	
  Equipment	
  has	
  become	
  the	
  latest	
  high-­‐profile	
  
firm	
  to	
  install	
  Microsoft	
  Dynamics	
  NAV	
  with	
  implementation	
  partner,	
  Azzure	
  IT.	
  The	
  system	
  has	
  
delivered	
  a	
  host	
  of	
  benefits,	
  including	
  slicker	
  processes	
  and	
  international	
  site	
  integration.	
  	
  
	
  
When	
  it	
  was	
  acquired	
  by	
  Japanese	
  tooling	
  giant	
  Nitto	
  Kohki,	
  Universal	
  had	
  to	
  update	
  its	
  ERP	
  system	
  
in	
  order	
  to	
  meet	
  the	
  strict	
  financial	
  reporting	
  required	
  by	
  JaSox	
  laws	
  (the	
  Japanese	
  equivalent	
  of	
  
Sarbanes	
  Oxley)	
  enforced	
  by	
  the	
  Japanese	
  stock	
  exchange.	
  
	
  
The	
  new	
  system	
  is	
  now	
  managing	
  all	
  Universal’s	
  activities	
  from	
  purchase	
  order	
  through	
  works	
  order	
  
and	
  sale	
  orders,	
  to	
  accounts.	
  “The	
  ability	
  to	
  trace	
  information	
  has	
  been	
  vastly	
  improved.	
  There	
  are	
  
many	
  tasks	
  that	
  used	
  to	
  take	
  us	
  a	
  long	
  time	
  to	
  check	
  manually	
  and	
  Dynamics	
  NAV	
  now	
  manages	
  all	
  
those	
  automatically,”	
  says	
  Finance	
  Director	
  Bracey.	
  
	
  
The	
  system	
  has	
  also	
  provided	
  Universal	
  with	
  greater	
  integration	
  of	
  its	
  satellite	
  offices	
  in	
  France,	
  
Holland	
  and	
  the	
  US,	
  says	
  Steve	
  Bracey,	
  “We	
  wanted	
  to	
  bring	
  all	
  the	
  sites	
  together	
  on	
  one	
  system	
  so	
  
we	
  could	
  fully	
  unify	
  operations.	
  Crucially,	
  we	
  needed	
  a	
  system	
  with	
  multi-­‐lingual	
  capabilities	
  and	
  
Dynamics	
  NAV	
  offered	
  that	
  out	
  of	
  the	
  box.	
  Structures	
  are	
  now	
  in	
  place	
  for	
  greater	
  cross-­‐business	
  
integration	
  because	
  we	
  can	
  see	
  their	
  stock	
  and	
  plan	
  production	
  from	
  here,	
  enabling	
  us	
  to	
  respond	
  to	
  
customer	
  demand	
  much	
  more	
  effectively	
  without	
  holding	
  surplus	
  stock.”	
  
	
  
Founded	
  over	
  30	
  years	
  ago,	
  Universal	
  Drilling	
  &	
  Cutting	
  Equipment	
  is	
  a	
  world	
  leader	
  in	
  the	
  
manufacture	
  of	
  broaching	
  hole	
  cutters	
  and	
  electro-­‐magnetic	
  drilling	
  machines,	
  which	
  it	
  sells	
  under	
  
its	
  Unibor	
  brand.	
  It	
  exports	
  90%	
  of	
  its	
  production	
  to	
  Europe	
  and	
  the	
  USA.
