Boyd Corporation Leverages Cyberquery – Improves Efficiencies and Business Insights
by Rob Little
Steve Price of Boyd Corp. spoke with me about implementing Cyberquery and the benefits.
“Through our implementation of Cyberquery, we have saved over $500,000 in improved efficiencies over the past three years.”
Best in class manufacturing organizations are under increasing pressure to streamline their processes and cut overhead costs. Faced with these issues, Boyd Corporation, headquartered in Modesto, CA, selected Cyberquery as the corporate business intelligence and report writing solution.
Steve Price, IT Manager at Boyd stated, “Through our implementation of Cyberquery, we have saved over $500,000 in improved efficiencies over the past three years. And that’s being conservative.” Price went on to say, “The exceptional speed and ease of use of Cyberquery have made these savings possible. In addition, Cyberquery has empowered the organization’s leadership to make quality decisions. We are gaining previously unavailable business insight and our executive team is now able to make swift and informed decisions that were just not possible before we implemented Cyberquery.”
In one instance Cyberquery was used to create an accounts receivable (AR) information management solution for their corporate AR department. The return gained by this, after a two-day Cyberscience services engagement, was an annual saving of $90,000.
“Time saving initiatives such as this one has made a major impact on staff job satisfaction and morale.”
Boyd’s IT department has also integrated Cyberquery with the corporation’s ERP and CRM systems. Through Cyberquery’s Webreporting, scheduling and built-in email functionality, all of Boyd’s customer shipment and tracking information is automatically emailed to each customer’s procurement team every day. “The shipment notification solution was created in only 2 hours. As a result of this successful initiative our account relationship management team has saved 4 man hours of telephone communications every single day. A remarkable return” stated Price. “Time saving initiatives such as this one has made a major impact on staff job satisfaction and morale”, Price added.
Another successful use of Cyberquery has been the distribution in real-time of key sales and margin information to the senior management team at Boyd. These matrices are generated on a scheduled basis through the Cyberquery scheduling service, Qdirector. This facilitates fast and effective collaborative decision making.
Boyd Corporation’s requirements are not unique; all manufacturing organizations are under similar constraints and pressures to supply goods at lower costs with associated diminishing margins. By using Cyberquery, organizations can improve efficiencies, cut costs, and gain useful business insight.
