The collaboration between OntargIT and Hjort Knudsen began in October 2018 and continues to this day. The initial stage comprised acquaintance with the client’s problems:
Together, OntargIT and Hjort Knudsen have built a complex business process of work on a tolling scheme for the transfer of raw materials, which is built on the same Microsoft Dynamics AX platform and allows transferring production orders from Poland to Ukraine with the ability to track material consumption, transfer orders between manufacturing sites to Ukraine, and also takes into account the requirements for displaying in system entities and document flow of the outward processing of production materials.
A pricing scheme for products was implemented between the Polish and Ukrainian companies, taking into account the efficiency of using consigned materials.
