Setting the strategy
In the early to mid-1990s, Endries International took a close look at its homegrown software and decided that it needed a major upgrade. With an aggressive growth plan, the company knew that it needed to adopt robust and flexible applications as a solid foundation to support long-term growth and manage all the business changes along the way. Its objective was to be able to continually upgrade its technology with minimal disruption to its business processes while seeking new ways to streamline those processes.

According to Todd Fischer, vice president and corporate information officer at Endries International, “At that time, our revenues were only about $15 million, and we were focusing on growing the business significantly. Our goal was to be over $100 million by 2000, and we knew the existing software just couldn’t get us there.”
