We determine the license and price of our solution based on meetings as a result of our extensive analysis. Unlike other software companies, we expect that both parties are determined and willing to collaborate during pre-decision meetings since a special business partnership will be started. We put mutual trust and confidence in the solution before our pricing decisions.

Levent Sılay: Customized ERP applications that consider organizations as comprehensive mechanisms handle all parts of the process one by one and develop comprehensive engineering practices and the most accurate methods of operation. Organizations aiming to move forward should support their internal engineering works and should not ignore short-term prices such as labor, effort and time over the long-term gains. Applications that are properly installed minimize human errors with reliable validation mechanisms; help foresights to be analyzed with minimum errors, and ensure that decisions are made in consideration of the entire company in the light of these analyzes.

ERP NEWS: Do you have tailored solutions for defense and aviation industry? If yes, could you give us some details?

Savaş Göktürk: We do not have tailored solutions for defense and aviation industry but there are ERP projects that we carried out for defense and aviation industry.

ERP NEWS: How do your solutions contribute to the design of products? How do they shorten the market launch timelines?

Savaş Göktürk: The way to achieve success in the new economy is to be "innovative" in every aspect. While products and brands can be easily imitated, it is extremely difficult, even impossible, to imitate corporate culture and business conduct.

Globalizing economy forces companies to develop their own special, new and unique business management, production and sales models. In order to be able to cope with competition, business processes need to be improved, redesigned if necessary, and this cycle should be repeated continuously.

Companies that cannot improve their processes or renew themselves quickly or offer better products and services to their customers on more economical terms are facing the threat of perishing from the market.

Standard "bundled" software cause difficulties in, even completely blocks, putting the innovative and competitive aspects of companies into practice due to their static and solid structures.

Login ERP's process-based, flexible, modular and parametric infrastructure easily responds to the growing, evolving and diverse needs and expectations of companies. Companies using Login ERP have the ability to define and preserve their unique differences in business processes. Thus, they are easily adapted to the changing dynamics of the market, while stand out from their competitors.

And all of these, in addition to providing a concrete and innovative look to the designs of the products, also seriously reduce the market launch timeline of products.

ERP NEWS: Choosing the right partner for productivity is as important as the right solution. What are the features that make Login preferable in the industry? Could you tell us also about your planned education activities?

Savaş Göktürk: There are many reasons to choose Login ERP. Let’s list a few of them:

You increase your profitability by managing all your resources in the most optimum and efficient manner.

You focus on your work and grow it in a healthy manner.

You accelerate your decision-making processes and jump ahead in the competition.

With increased productivity, you produce more with fewer employees.

You avoid being dependent on people, making a transparent management understanding achievable.

You recover your investment in a very short time.

You feel Login's experience, knowledge and sincere friendship by your side.

You contribute to your budget and to the environment by consuming fewer papers and consumables.

The design and functionality of Login ERP in conformity with “business ergonomics”, its strong relational database and technological solutions such as barcode and EDI that make operations easier enable works to proceed in a fast and smooth manner.

Login ERP offers the perfect infrastructure for the production, flow, sharing and healthy management of information from data collected from across the organization.

Login ERP, which manages all business processes on an integrated structure, transforms them into "strategic value" by making accurate, up-to-date and complete information immediately accessible.

Each business process has a flow algorithm. There are approval mechanisms applicable at all transitional points of the process. These flow-approvals and "traceability" of current status are critical in functions such as procurement, goods acceptance, quality control and lot tracking and batch sales. All of these flow, transition and approval mechanisms under Login ERP are traceable at any moment. Who carried out the previous steps and when (dates and hours) they were carried out and whose approval will be required in subsequent steps can be followed in a visual integrity. During all transitions, the system automatically notifies the relevant persons by e-mail to avoid any skipping, forgetting or waste of time.

You will have the opportunity to access to information from anywhere through web-based order tracking and complaint handling.

ERP NEWS: Could you share with us a recent project process? What was expected from you, which solution was offered and what were the benefits?

Savaş Göktürk: Companies often switch to ERP software based on large-scale investment decisions. Such changes are carried out over long periods of time and require significant resources. It is imperative that the ERP projects that need to be carried out and concluded without interrupting company's regular functioning are well planned, managed and supervised to be successful.

The knowledgeable and experienced staff of the Login Consulting Department has an important share in the success of ERP ERP projects. The implementation process of each project is managed by "Login Project Management Methodology", which has proved its success many times without any coincidence.

Project success is not left to chance with Login Project Management Methodology.

Login Consulting Team analyzes all departments of the organization at the beginning of the project and creates a profile. In this study, which is conducted with all departments of the organization, "intra-department business conduct" and "inter-department business-information-document flows" are presented.

Successful positive attributes and flows are transferred to the system while the flows causing slowness and/or faults are transferred with improvements.

ERP NEWS: How does Login approach to Industrial 4.0 revolution and intelligent production concept, which has started to come to the fore in the industry? How will your solutions contribute to this new revolution of the industry?

Savaş Göktürk:  Login ERP is developed by a strong team, who are familiar with the realities of our country and know quite well how local firms do business in this context, closely follow the local legislative amendments and have a global perspective gained through working with foreign partner companies. Login ERP is constantly and unconditionally renewed in response to changing and diversified needs and legislative amendments. In this context, it has also been following closely the Industry 4.0 revolution and constantly renews its solutions in this context.

ERP NEWS: What kind of problems do the customers face especially at the point of successful implementation of industrial software projects in our country?

Savaş Göktürk: There are many reasons that can be elaborated in detail, but briefly, we can list: assuming that the existing internal system is faulty and/or useless, starting the project without a proper budget planning, thinking that ERP aims for complex businesses and thus, simplifying the system, failure to manage the benefits after the completion of the project, thinking that the ERP project has a starting and ending date, not being willing and ready for integration with industry-specific programs.

I also would like to stress that the most important problem is that the right people are not assigned to ERP projects.

ERP NEWS: Which investments will be realized in Login in 2015 and what are your plans?

Savaş Göktürk: As Login Software, we primarily focus on Artificial Intelligence, Production Optimization and Franchise Management solutions in 2015.

Furthermore, new resources are being created especially in our Software Development and Project Department and we aim for accurate, continuous and effective growth. Our efforts continue in this direction.
