Modernizing HR Management: Olympic Industries Ltd’s ERP Transformation
In the manufacturing sector, effective workforce management is crucial to ensure optimal productivity, employee satisfaction, and operational efficiency. This case study highlights challenges faced by organizations dealing with manual HR processes. We’ll see how adopting an HRMS transformed HR management, leading to increased efficiency and future readiness.
In an increasingly digitized world, Olympic Industries Ltd was facing the challenge of an outdated and manual HR management system. This led to inconsistencies, inefficiencies, and a lack of essential HR functions, hampering overall productivity.
Recognizing the need for an upgrade, we, at Brain Station 23, stepped in to introduce Odoo, an open-source ERP solution, transforming their Human Resource Management System (HRMS).
Established in 1979 as Bengal Carbide Limited, Olympic Industries Limited has evolved from a battery manufacturer to Bangladesh’s foremost biscuit and confectionery giant. With a legacy spanning over four decades, Olympic has become one of Bangladesh’s premier manufacturers, distributors, and marketers of fast-moving consumer goods.
Utilizing Odoo, an open-source ERP solution, we crafted a tailored HRMS module for Olympic Industries Limited. This strategic implementation automated their HR functions, bringing accuracy and efficiency to every aspect of their workforce management.
