Precix has some exciting news!

We are pleased to announce our new ERP system upgrade to SAP! Since January 2016 our team, along with our outside consultants, have been dedicated to mapping out the upgrade and to ensure a smooth transition for us and for you as our partners.

Our SAP “go live” date is scheduled for 4Q16.

One of the major changes and benefits with SAP will be the upgrade of order entry to full EDI for all orders. Your support in the coming weeks will be an integral part to ensure the accuracy of orders, scheduling, and timing.

Please be on the lookout for detailed communication from our team including a time line, next steps, and where your assistance will be needed.

Your suggestions and best practices for the transition are welcome and appreciated as well, so please share with us.

We thank you for your partnership and look forward to working with you on a future full of new opportunities!
