As part of the Praher Group, Praher Plastics Austria GmbH manufactures high-quality solutions made of plastic. As part of the project, we implemented various measures that affected the company’s enterprise resource planning. This is based on the ERP system Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012.
The maintenance of product images and texts was centralized in the ERP, which is also used to control cross-selling and accessories. In addition, customer-specific prices can be generated via the system. For the maintenance and structure of the product information, ESYON was available not only for the technical implementation but also for consulting.
In addition to the merchandise management system, the Internet presence of Praher Plastics Austria GmbH was also modernized and given a general visual overhaul. Customers can now download their invoices via a portal. In addition, the availability status of the articles can be called up, which is a combination of inventory and replenishment time. As part of the modernization, customers are also able to ship internationally.
The go-live took place in April 2021.

Customers can use the barcode scanner in the Android and iOS app to add individual products to their shopping cart and thus quickly and easily replenish their own stock. In cooperation with MAINCOR and the IT service provider nubibase, a comprehensive e-commerce project was realized within 2 years until the go-live in November 2020.
