May 15, 2023
HITSA is a Danish designer and manufacturer of city space furniture and products related to cycling. The company manufactures in their own facilities, focusing on design, craftmanship, and quality. Their benches, bollards, bike racks, and canopies create pleasant and well-functioning outdoor spaces for people.
With approximately 100 employees and locations in Denmark, Sweden, and Latvia, HITSA offers capabilities within blacksmith projects, woodwork, painting, construction, sales, and assembly, among others.
Being determined in providing social inclusion as well as sustainability for the environment, HITSA’s values are rooted in honesty, acting responsibly, and having the customer at the center of all that they do.
As the business continues to grow, new needs arise. In order to address these future needs, HITSA is looking to streamline their data structure and data processes across all geographical locations and departments.
Preparing data management for the future and unifying processes across all locations will benefit the company greatly. It makes onboarding of new employees consistent no matter their position. Remote work becomes more accessible as tasks are streamlined, and collaboration within and between teams is further supported. Moreover, communication with sub-suppliers and buyers is strengthened and correct data is ensured throughout.
Ultimately, improving data management helps HITSA save both time and money while maintaining a high level of quality.
Data structures fit for the future
The goals for HITSA’s project are a result of a need for failsafe workflows along with data structures fit for a future of company growth and development.
HITSA wants to keep track of design data while ensuring their validity. They want seamless integration from Vault into their ERP system, so they only encounter one interface for documentation. They aspire to have a unified data structure and streamlined data processes.
All of these goals combined will provide HITSA with time-saving processes, more automated workflows and data streams, along with a minimum of errors and an improved quality assurance.
A single interface for documentation
Along with the VP of Engineering at HITSA, Tick Cad has set out to design a solution that addresses the challenges ahead and accomplishes the desired goals.
HITSA is to implement an integration between Autodesk Inventor, Vault Professional and Microsoft Navision. With a single interface for documentation, employees only have to enter data in one place. This means that employees need not fear data loss, data faults, or mistakes in data handover. The addition of Tick Tool Jobserver for automated downstream of data files ensures that all departments and locations have the right information at the right time, without errors or miscommunications.
Integration between Navision, Inventor, and Vault
The outcome of successful implementation of data processes along with integration between Autodesk Inventor, Vault Professional and HITSA’s Navision will be an even more efficient and profitable business due to time-saving processes, more automated workflows and data streams, as well as improved quality assurance. Moreover, correct data entails that the company enforces its strategic goals for sustainability as the usage of materials is optimized and fewer resources are being wasted with every product produced.
Sustainable future with the right partner
With the right strategy and plan for structuring data, quality assurance increases while the number of errors minimizes. By partnering up with Tick Cad, HITSA attacks redundant workflows and optimizes efficiency through integration between Autodesk software and third-party software. This sets up HITSA for a bright and even more sustainable future.
