April 29, 2008 - Eder GmbH Deutschland, a company specializing in selling, leasing and servicing agricultural machinery and forklifts, will implement the Lawson M3 Enterprise Management System for Equipment Service Management.


The company signed a contract with Terna, a Lawson channel partner in Germany. Eder GmbH Deutschland will use the Lawson system for Equipment Service Management along with Lawson Mobile Service to help support its increasing business demands. The contract was signed during Lawson's third quarter of fiscal 2008, which ended February 29, 2008.

The Eder group of companies needed an industry-specific solution with integrated business processes. Eder's legacy system could no longer support its requirements and the company determined that further in-house development of its enterprise software systems would be too expensive. In addition, Eder wanted to implement a solution that offered new business model for communicating more efficiently with its business partners.

Eder selected Lawson over competing ERP offerings because the company needed an industry-specific ERP system compatible with its existing IBM System i platform. The company also selected Lawson because it offered implementation support through Lawson's local partner Terna.

"We were looking for a highly integrated solution that would cover our key business areas," said Peter Eder, managing partner at Eder GmbH. "We want to optimize synergy internally and improve communications with our partners. Mapping a heterogeneous company network was one of the biggest challenges. With the Lawson M3 system, we have found a solution that will help us solve this and achieve our set targets."
