Yardney - A bly:Optimize Success Story
Riverside California’s Yardney Water Filtration Systems operates a state of the art 60,000 square foot research, design, and manufacturing facility. They are a pioneer in the development of clean water solutions and since 1965 they have provided high-quality, cost effective products becoming one of the world’s leading manufacturers of water filtration equipment for industrial and agricultural applications.
Chris Phillips, Yardney Vice President, approached Blytheco with a feeling that they were not getting the full use out of their Sage 100 ERP business system. In fact, he feared they may be doing things backwards, since some of their processes had not changed in many years. With a planned manufacturing facility expansion on the horizon, Chris did not want the new facility coming on line with the same flawed processes of the current one. So, armed with a hunch, Chris arranged for a Blytheco process optimization (bly:Optimize) headed up by veteran Blytheco consultant Debbie Long.
