We often talk about international ERPs, able to operate effectively in the most varied contexts and realities of different countries. Nevertheless, what are the characteristics of an ERP software that is really able to ensure a competitive advantage everywhere?

It has to be first at all a multi-language ERP, to process in different languages information such as invoices, names, quantities, currency, price lists. The ERP has also to be multi-company and multi-legislation, to manage the legal and tax regulations of the various countries. Moreover, it is essential that it is able to integrate efficiently data from heterogeneous systems, including third-party software. Naturally, we take it for granted that a truly international ERP is modular, scalable, quick to implement and easy to use. In summary, in order to successfully follow projects without borders, an ERP software has to represent a solution with native international capabilities and preferably have a local integrator, able to facilitate the implementation phases.

The ERP Mago4 has all these characteristics, and it is in fact one of the pillars of the international presence of the Zucchetti Group, a force able to build relationships of trust with local players with whom to share principles and visions for a competitive growth.

The latest confirmation comes from an important test case, in a strategic country like Germany. Thanks to an important project started from basis, fully focused on Mago4 and conducted by Zucchetti GMBH for the Company Randazzo GmbH, the German scene enriches the solid functional localizations of the international ERP Mago4.

Randazzo GmbH is present on the German market with Gusto Italia, a small B2B and B2C sales company that offers Italian food products and specialties in the heart of the Rhine-Main region, near Frankfurt. The main feature of Gusto Italia is to be configured both as a physical market and as a sales system to the retailer, for export purposes too, thus presenting numerous and extremely different needs.

As part of the project, it was immediately clear that the logistics processes of Randazzo GmbH face the same challenges as large companies in the Cash&Carry and the retail sale of food products, especially in the Supply Chain and Warehouse Management sectors: having customized lists, managing lots and mixed pallets are just some of the most important needs. For the company, it is also essential the guarantee of a software capable of growing together with its business.

To fulfill all these requirements, Mago4 ERP has been entirely converted ex novo, also dealing with a series of apparently trivial aspects (adaptation of the fictions, which now follow the German model, import into Mago4 of all the inventory and related data). The ERP is now ready to perform a primary role in the management of master data and price lists, with the definition of prices and barcodes.

With Mago4, Gusto Italia has initially adopted all the functions dedicated to the management of the logistics area, with special attention to WMS and WMS Mobile and to the management of lots characterized by a precise DMD - Date of Minimum Durability. As the needs increase, the company has implemented a complete configuration also in the Supply Chain area, in a progressive and modular manner.

With the ERP Mago4 and the support of Zucchetti GmbH's experience, Gusto Italia quickly achieved a decisive optimization of processes and a rapid increase in production thanks to the drastic reduction of waste of goods, greater transparency in the processes and control of deadlines and the drop in consumption related to inventory logistics.

Mago4 has therefore played a crucial role for Gusto Italia and at the same time has been able to receive an important stimulus from the customer. In fact, a specific need for Gusto Italia, which is linked to the management of variable-weight barcodes, has been implemented within the software functionalities and transformed into a growth factor at the operational level. Mago4 now has a substantial improvement in the management of barcodes and is able to administer variable-weight barcodes within the active/passive cycle (ie relating to products, whose packaging does not have a predetermined and constant weight, the unit sales price of which varies according to the final weight).

The German case is exemplary: Mago4 is able to face the challenge of international development by supporting a seamless operation both of companies that want to project themselves abroad, and of already localized realities, combined with an implementation through a "trust- based network " branded Zucchetti.

Widespread in 30 countries around the world, Mago4 promotes the success of user companies on the global stage, because it is able to deal with different needs, languages and taxation, and knows how to dialogue with the most diverse interlocutors, thanks to its native characteristics of openness and flexibility.

Today Mago4 speaks 10 languages (Bulgarian, English, French, German, Hungarian, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian and Spanish) and natively supports localizations for Brazil, Bulgaria, Germany, Italy, Poland, Romania, Spain, Switzerland, and Hungary.
