Smithfield, Rhode Island (April 23, 2015) —Computer Associates (CAI) today announced that Glines & Rhodes, Inc., a leading provider of precious metals refining services, has selected CAI’s NAV for Refining enterprise resource planning (ERP) software for company-wide, real-time visibility of its operational, technical and financial data.
Glines & Rhodes operates a state-of-the-art refining facility in Attleboro, Massachusetts where it recovers value from materials containing gold, silver, platinum, palladium, rhodium, iridium and ruthenium.
CAI’s NAV for Refining software, based on Microsoft’s Dynamics ERP platform, is a fully integrated, multi-lingual and multi-currency ERP solution designed for precious metal refiners, smelters and other related businesses. The software gives businesses complete control over their core business processes, the precision to perfect their supply chain and the insight that their employees need to perform their best.
As the need for its precious metal refining services spread from jewelry into other marketplaces such as medical, industrial, and gold buying, the company needed to expand its services. Ryan Crowell, Executive Vice President at Glines & Rhodes said, “We initiated a pretty exhaustive search and spoke with a lot of people in the industry to see what our options for more contemporary software would be. The effort led us to CAI. After an initial meeting with the consultants at CAI to review our scrap generation process and discuss the shortcomings of our current software as well as additional ‘must-have’ capabilities in a new system, I felt confident that CAI knew their stuff. Then, after our first look at the NAV for Refining ERP solution, we knew immediately that we had found what we needed to run our company.”
Crowell continued, “We would certainly recommend CAI and the NAV for Refining ERP software to anyone looking to improve their staff’s efficiency and customer service. The software is very user friendly and easy to navigate. CAI knows the software, and the coding behind it so well that there is no problem that they can’t handle.”
