Selects 3i Infotech's ERP systems for formula management and extensive lot traceability

Edison, NJ — July 14, 2006 — National Enzyme Company (NEC) has selected an enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution from 3i Infotech as the single source of integration for its business functions and as its tool for managing its extensive formula library and ensuring "cradle to grave" lot traceability, the solution provider has announced.

A nutritional enzyme technology provider based in Forsyth, Mo., NEC will use 3i Infotech's ORION Enterprise ERP solution as the company moves to bring its business functions — including sales, purchasing, accounting and inventory — under a single systems umbrella. NEC also plans to automate previously manual process such as production scheduling by moving them to an online, real-time environment.

Prior to selecting ORION Enterprise, NEC relied on disparate systems across departments, using different processes and underlying technologies. The result made intradepartmental communication difficult and time consuming.

"Having outgrown our previous software, we were being forced to do more and more functions off-line," said Anita Medhekar, director of operations for National Enzyme Company. "ORION Enterprise will eliminate this trend. Because business functions will become integrated, information will be more timely, consistent and accurate, and the selection of ORION Enterprise represents an attractive, cost-effective solution for our business."

"ORION Enterprise will enable NEC in achieving its goal of being totally paperless across the organization, while managing its processes much more effectively," said Sharad Vajpayee, vice president of ORION Software for 3i Infotech. "By participating in our remote implementation program, NEC will be able to realize substantial savings over traditional approaches."

3i Infotech provides information technology solutions for manufacturing, retail and distribution, insurance, capital market, banking and finance and e-governance. It is one of India's top five software product companies.
