Kuban-tea is biggest tea factory on the south of Russia, which was launched in 2010. Currently it produces 300 tons of tea with full capacity of 500 tons per month.
The main goal of the implementation project was to replace number of legacy systems and workarounds with one state-of-the-art, modern solution to effectively manage two different types of production and support rapid growth of the company.
"Our primary objective was to optimize overall plant productivity. We are convinced that with Microsoft Dynamics AX we get the world's best management practices, and we intend to use them at full capacity."- said Kadyr Balayev, General Director at “Kuban-Tea”.
Kuban-Tea selected OntargIT, Microsoft partner was with GOLD ERP competence, to implement Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 for Manufacturing solution. Using Microsoft Dynamics Sure Step (MDSS) implementation methodology, OntargIT and Kuban-Tea joint team were able to implement the project on time with expected quality and stay on budget.

It is one year since implemented solution is effectively used at Kuban-Tea.
Igor Vasylenko, Consulting Director, OntargIT said: «The project is specifically interesting because of two different types of production were automated - packing of tea and canned food production.
