Paint Shop Esa Eronen Ltd.

The paint- and body shop “Automaalaamo Esa Eronen Oy” has been operating since 1995 in the city of Lahti of Päijät-Häme County in Southern Finland. Initially operating as a paint shop, the company expanded to collision repairs around one year ago. Currently the company has six staff members including the owner, Esa Eronen.

ProcessManager-stock management system was taken into use at the end of 2014. Main reason for introducing ProcessManager was the time spent in the product ordering process. Eronen says that he spent almost half of a work day merely on checking the shelves and cans. Also one challenge before ProcessManager was situations where a certain product ran out or was simply misplaced. This certainly slowed down the work flow at the time. When learning about ProcessManager, the decision to take the system in use was easy to make.

According to Eronen, the launch of ProcessManager system went easily. Eronen and his supplier evaluated the suitable size of the product line and also updated the product portfolio at the same time. At the end of the day, there was less products on the shelves and only the ones that were really needed. Majority of the products used in Eronen’s paint and body shop are now ordered via ProcessManager.

Also the staff of Automaalaamo Eronen has been very satisfied with ProcessManager. The right products are always ordered in due time. So stock level is always at agreed level. Also making an extra order when necessary is very easy. Eronen states that well-functioning stock management system has increased the work efficiency of both the staff members and himself. The paint- and body shop owner has now much

more time when the ordering process is automated and there’s always right products on the shelves. In addition to the more fluent work processes and time savings, also the work premises are much more organised after introducing ProcessManager.

We are very satisfied with ProcessManager. The largest gain for us has been the time saved by using the automatic stock module. The right products are always ordered in due time. So stock level is always at agreed level. Also making an extra order when necessary is very easy. The stock management system has increased the work efficiency of both the staff members and himself.

Eronen has been nothing but satisfied with ProcessManager. The major matter has been the time savings, which is why Eronen would recommend ProcessManager to all paint shops – despite the size of operation.
