Salto Systems is currently one of the most important companies in the world in the access control sector. Founded in 2000, the company has grown to become the second-largest manufacturers of electronic locks. Today, the business has an annual revenue in excess rate $179 million and distributes over 3.4 million access point solutions across the world.
Innovation, complexity, and efficiency are 3 of the words that best define Salto. Established in a small apartment in Irun by a group of engineers, Salto Systems has grown to revolutionize the world of locking solutions. After becoming the first to replace traditional keys with electronic cards that connect wirelessly with the locking mechanism, the business has since gone on to launch a number of market-firsts, such as the development of Bluetooth locks that utilize advanced mobile and cloud technology. Now based in Oiartzun (Guipúzcoa), the business has doubled its assortment since 2015 and now offers customers over 53,000 SKUs.
“Before implementing Slim4 in 2012, we used the MRP module with Navision 4.0. However, it was not agile enough, and there were too many purchase proposals that we did not understand. As a consequence, we often had to review everything manually. The reality of this is that the planning team would have to spend most of their day validating the purchase proposals. When you consider that the assortment has doubled in size since we first launched Slim4 and continues to grow at a rate of 14% a year, the fact that a single planner can now manage the entire assortment is a testament to the simplicity of Slim4.” explains Santiago Estevas, Operations Director at Salto Systems.
