Today, Lawson Software announced that Wilcon Builders’ Supply has agreed to implement the Lawson M3 Enterprise Management System to help support its business and distribution operations. Lawson's Management System provides a number of integrated business application suites that cover core and supporting business processes, including financial management, customer relationship management, supply chain planning, supply chain execution, business intelligence, and mobility.

David Hope, vice president and managing director for Lawson Asia, stated, “This new relationship with Wilcon is more evidence that we are becoming the obvious choice for retail/wholesale and distribution companies by delivering industry-specific functionality that helps deliver greater value and a strong return on investment. And with more than 800 employees in the Philippines, we are in a great position to support our customers in the country and across the region.”

“We are investing heavily in cutting-edge IT in spite of the current economic climate, because we see technology as a platform to enhance and support the growth of our business,” commented William Belo, president and CEO of Wilcon. “For instance, automating warehouse processes, enabling shop floor mobility and gleaning reports using Lawson Business Intelligence can help us improve our customer service levels, especially when there is the potential of regional expansion in the future.”

According to the press release, Wilcon made its decision to select Lawson after evaluating competing offerings from other enterprise software providers. “After listening to what all the vendors had to say, we felt Lawson offered the best overall solution fit in terms of the size of its operations in the region and the depth of its expertise in distribution and retail. This is also reflected in the numerous references Lawson has in the industry, which was a key driver in our decision,” added Belo.
