LS Tractor USA Embraces Better Dealer Management with Netfira Solution and SAP® ERP Application

Netfira adds LS Tractor USA as a new cloud customer.

Walnut Creek, CA, October 4, 2011Netfira, a B2B software solutions provider withoperations in Australia, Europe and the United States, is pleased to announce the addition of LS Tractor USA, located in Battleboro, North Carolina, as a new cloud customer. LS Tractor, one of the fastest-growing tractor manufacturers in the world, implemented the Netfira WebStore solution for its extensive dealer network, for use with the SAP® ERP application.

LS Tractor USA, a subsidiary of South Korean heavy equipment manufacturer LS Mtron Ltd, presented a daunting challenge to prospective solution providers. Its requirements included low implementation costs, REAL-TIME inventory and pricing lookup for dealers, online tractor configuration and ordering capability, dealer-specific customized pricing, and complete ordering automation within its system running SAP, which also needed to be linked to the SAP solution in use at its headquarters in South Korea. And the new solution needed to be implemented within three months.

“Netfira hit on every cylinder,” declared LS Tractor COO Anand Bhansali. “Netfira’s online web-based system exceeded all our requirements and allowed our dealers to get the benefits of REAL-TIME inventory visibility, dealer-specific customized pricing, online configurability and order automation integrated with SAP ERP. We were especially pleased our hundreds of dealers did not have to invest in any new systems: they can simply shop the WebStore, which is able to grow as we grow. We’ve already begun to see a return on our investment!”

Netfira’s VP of Sales, Reinald Schneller announced, “The Netfira WebStore we configured for LS Tractor streamlines their day-to-day operations by eliminating time-consuming and error-prone manual ordering processes, such as phone, fax and email. Plus, it saved LS Tractor and its dealers huge amounts of implementation time and money. We are thrilled to welcome LS Tractor to the Netfira family.”
