Everything you need is there

Jeeves Enterprise gives you all the functions that your business needs like financial management, production control, service and maintenance, marketing, sales and purchasing. Headquarters may use a number of different systems, but they are all easily integrated with Jeeves Enterprise even if provided by another supplier.

Design Basic: Make it your own

One of the basic ideas with Jeeves Enterprise is that the system shouldn’t steer your work process, but rather enable you to make your own changes. But the reasoning contains a built-in paradox because changes, in the mind of the hardened IT Director usually entail higher costs.

The paradox is resolved in the ease-of-change by the user to look and feel the way they would like to work, by the group for role based changes, and by Corporate IT for company wide changes. Change in Jeeves is not a bad word because changes are so simple and straight-forward that anybody used to working with a computer can cause change. The basic idea is to make Jeeves your own solution that fits giving you the information how you want to see it, where you want to see it, whenever you want to see it, at the touch of a button. Yes Sir, it really is that easy.

Things that are quite difficult in other systems are simple in Jeeves Alfa Laval, Jacqueline Njord, responsible for Production & Distribution systems Alfa Laval is a leading global supplier of custom designed products and technical process solutions. Alfa Laval has used Jeeves Enterprise since 1995 to handle the production of heat exchangers.

We believe that the business should steer the IT solution. Not the other way around. This view is shared by Jeeves who proved it to us by providing us with the means to work exactly as we like, says Jacqueline Njord, responsible for Production & Distribution systems at Alfa Laval.

We have many factories around the world and require a system that’s easy to install, integrate and extend. Today, we have inter-connected over 20 Jeeves Enterprise systems and around 1000 users with various responsibilities in the organization.
