Cadence offers an extensive and dynamic portfolio of products, services, and solutions for the public power, investor-owned utilities, and industrial markets.
Cadence used legacy tools and spreadsheets to manage its operations wherein it was too time consuming to track all orders, invoices. Also, with no central system in place, there were minimal analytics and no streamlining/ unification of data. This was leading to delay in deliveries and overall loss to business. Further, with increasing business there was need of automation in business processes and business communication. Often the procurement or fulfillment processes were getting delayed due to delay in documentation and was leading to business issues.
Cadence Power engaged Cynoteck to provide consultation on establishing an IT architecture wherein it has agility to handle changing needs of a fast growing business. Also, the required IT setup was expected to be easy to scale and manage. Cynoteck proposed implementation of Salesforce along with AppExchange applications to manage Finance/ Accounting. This ensured that overall release time is minimal.
