INFOTECH: EOH Smooths Production At Textile Maker Falke

 



Recent Western Cape Business News

To cater for its growing workload, FALKE South Africa, a leading local supplier of socks, hosiery and sports underwear, has upgraded its IT infrastructure with the help of EOH Managed Services Western Cape.

The company’s largest production facility is based in Cape Town and is dependent on an integrated enterprise resource planning (ERP) system to keep production running efficiently.

EOH implemented FALKE’s SYSPRO ERP business software in 2004, and has been supplying the manufacturer with infrastructure services ever since, including SYSPRO consulting and support, infrastructure consulting, hardware and software, and a technical managed services contract to maintain it all. 

The SYSPRO solution was originally installed on a single server running Microsoft’s Small Business Server system software. As FALKE has expanded and both processing volumes and the number of system users increased, the operational and functional limits of the Small Business Server environment were reached. At the same time the upgradeability of the hardware server environment was also reaching its limit. 

To cater for the anticipated workload for the next three to five years, a decision was taken to upgrade both the system software and the server hardware environments.  It was decided to replace the Small Business Server software with Microsoft’s Enterprise Class server operating systems, and the hardware was replaced with robust industry-leading Dell enterprise-server platforms.
