Company Description

Daico Industries, Inc., a privately held California corporation, operates from a 41,000 sq. ft. manufacturing facility located just 15 miles south of the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).

With over 50 years of experience, Daico Industries has been a leading provider of advanced RF/Microwave Control Products and Amplifiers for the Defense Electronics, Aerospace, Commercial Aircraft, and other high-end commercial industries. Their custom, high-reliability products play a critical role in the complex operations of major Satellite, Radar, Navigation, Communications, Electronic Warfare, and Missile Systems Applications, showcasing their commitment to innovation and excellence in engineering.

Project Overview

Daico Industries faced a critical need to upgrade its outdated ERP system, which had been in use for thirty years and was no longer supported. Originally implemented three decades ago, the system never reached its full potential, offering only limited functionality. This outdated infrastructure posed significant challenges to Daico’s operations, hindering efficiency and limiting their ability to leverage modern technologies.

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central

After conducting comprehensive market research and consulting extensively with ERP experts at Calsoft, Daico made the strategic decision to adopt Dynamics 365 Business Central. They found that Business Central offered ease of upkeep and reporting capabilities compared to other solutions they had considered. Business Central stood out as the ideal solution, perfectly aligning with Daico’s needs and effectively resolving their challenges.

Results Achieved

Business Central has brought significant improvements to Daico’s operations. One notable benefit is the enhanced accuracy in cost tracking. By providing increased visibility and simplifying reporting systems, Business Central has made it easier for Daico to track costs accurately. This enhancement has not only led to better financial management but also empowered Daico with more insightful decision-making capabilities.

Additionally, the implementation of Business Central has resulted in reduced software maintenance costs for Daico. Almost all administrative functions have seen significant productivity increases. The system’s user-friendly interface and automation of repetitive tasks have contributed to these productivity gains, enabling Daico to operate more efficiently and effectively.

  • Business Central improved cost tracking accuracy
  • Increased visibility and simplicity in reporting systems
  • Reduced software maintenance costs
  • Significant productivity increases in almost all administrative functions compared to the old green-screen ERP system
