Fred Kreger, General Manager at Verndale Products, stated the company decided to purchase an ERP system because the firm is “undergoing a generational change in ownership and needed to transition from a closely held system to a multiple participant system.” Kreger knew this transition would be impossible to manage without a robust computer system to help manage their production and distribution operations.
In addition to the management changes, Fred state that Verndale Products also “wanted to closely scrutinize all areas of the business to see what products are really driving our business.” As with many manufacturers, documenting system requirements and reviewing software vendors was outside their internal expertise, so the Verndale team consulted with the staff of Plante & Moran Management Consulting. The newly formed project team selected Enterprise 21 after reviewing a number of supplier quotes and product demonstrations. According to Kreger, Verndale selected Enterprise 21 and TGI for reasons beyond that of mere product functionality. “All of the vendors we looked at seemed like they could fill our relatively simple needs. The people at TGI, their professionalism, and the quick responses we received from any question we had, drove our decision.” With the implementation of the new package, Verndale hopes to gain additional flexibility and time savings. As Kreger frankly put it, the implementation relates to “costs, costs, costs.” He said “we hope to make better decisions based on information we pull from our operating costs.”

For Fred Kreger, VernDale's General Manager, the decision to select Enterprise 21 ERP software from TGI was simple and went well beyond that of mere product functionality criteria.
Kreger explained their decision by stating, "All of the vendors we looked at seemed like they could fill our relatively simple needs. The people at TGI, their professionalism, and the quick responses we received from any question we had drove our decision." After over two years of working with the software, the VernDale team remains happy with the selection of Enterprise 21. Kreger continues to give accolades to Enterprise 21 by stating, "Our expectations are being met more so as we get further away from implementation. When asked about their implementation, Kreger stated, "At startup we concentrated on getting the bill paid or the invoice correctly laid out. As time went on and we became more familiar with the program, we started to learn how to use it to make our interactions with customers, vendors, and accountants better." VernDale utilizes process manufacturing industry best practices and continues to explore and adopt the software's broad range of built-in functionality. Kreger said, "We came from a manual system. Kreger acknowledges Enterprise 21's tangible benefits by stating, "In a more concrete way, Enterprise 21 has reduced the man-hours needed to process routine office tasks. Bill paying, invoices and associated forms, financial statements, and miscellaneous billing questions all take less time and are far more accurate than before Enterprise 21. Every week we find a better way (faster, easier, or more accurate) to structure our interaction with Enterprise 21." While the company now manages its operations in a state-of-the-art ERP software application, the family-focused culture that is the heart and sole of VernDale remains strong. As in many family-owned and operated businesses, the VernDale management team solicits the assistance of the younger VernDale generations, even if those family members work outside the walls of VernDale Products. Kreger credits this to Enterprise 21's ease of use by stating, "The organization of the software on screen is logical.
