Labyrinth Business Solutions (USA) specializes in information systems implementation at jewelry enterprises and is the most successful in this market. Industrial solution based on prior versions of Microsoft Navision developed by LBS has been successfully implemented in the companies like Andel, Design Works, subdivisions of Richemont holding (the owner of leading world jewelry brands of luxury range including Cartier and Van Cleef & Arpels).
Strategic Solution LLC and Labyrinth Business Solutions have already had successful cooperation experience. In 2003 Strategic Solution successfully localized into Russian automated enterprise management system for jewelry sector developed by LBS. It was the first successful experience of such cooperation between foreign and Russian developers of Microsoft Navision based management systems.
There is a number of circumstances when large West company can turn to Russian partner. The first is high reputation of the Russian company in the market. The second is deep understanding of customer’s business peculiarities by the business partner. Of the same importance are the absence of language barrier and availability of resources (some tenth of people at least).
LBS decision to choose Strategic Solution LCC as a partner means that Russian companies are not just able to meet world standards but to set these standards as well. The market has many proposals from different countries, Indian for example, that offer substantially lower prices. The key advantages are not just professional programming skills but the combination of practical knowledge of the particular business with practical knowledge of Microsoft Navision.
Being confident in high professional level of experts and high-quality work of Strategic Solution, LBS applied to the Russian company for the second time. After the release of Microsoft Navision
4.0 LBS and Strategic Solution concluded the contract on transferring the jewelry industry solution to the new version of software adding new functions particular for the industry.
The updated system supports in full the processes of manufacturing, repairing and product quality control. Important possibilities like production and sales planning, order performance control, product quality control have been implemented. Navision controls the company’s warehousing state, history of movement and operations for all the components used and end products. As the material being used is very expensive it is very important to account every gem, material or item; that is why each production stage controlled by the system supports bar-coding.
Special modules developed by Strategic Solution experts are very important component of the system. For example “working-with-gems module” that includes diamond quality assurance and tracing of diamonds according to serial numbers. Another important module manages recalls and repair.
In addition Microsoft Navision 4.0 has special integrated configurator that allows automatization and full control over the creation of individual production specifications. This configurator controls price-forming process and future price of end products.
«We have been cooperating with Strategic Solution Company for a long time and satisfied with our cooperation”, comments Bill Kopelcheck, the head of Labyrinth Business Solutions. Numerous modifications of Navision ordered by us are always performed with high quality and within the terms agreed. It is very pleasing to note that within the budget agreed the experts of Strategic Solution often implement even those functions that had not been set in the development assignment but simplify substantially users work”.
"Cooperation with Labyrinth Business Solutions that started in 2003 was our first custom modification experience of Microsoft Navision system. By now we have expanded the number of our customers; they include both national and international large market players. I expect that despite competitive Indian developers high qualification of our experts will allow us to progress actively in custom development for Microsoft Navision on an international scale”, says Maksim Gvozdev, director general of Strategic Solution LLC.
