Case Study on Klipsch Audio Technologies

Klipsch needed its business systems to keep pace with the company’s growth. In addition to growing organically, Klipsch made a series of strategic acquisitions that had left the company maintaining five instances of an obsolete ERP system in the US and one instance of a legacy system in Europe. These disjointed systems routinely required heroic efforts at month-end and often produced multiple versions of the truth.

Consolidated financials across the fragmented systems were being produced in spreadsheets with extensive manual effort; customer orders across product lines or geographic regions had to be entered into multiple systems and invoiced separately; and difficulty in compiling supply chain planning information limited responsiveness to changing customer demand, thereby slowing changes to overseas suppliers.

A Case Study on Kansas Department of Corrections

Case Study on RVOS Farm Mutual Insurance Company

BCD had a sample program that was about three quarters of a page long, so I keyed it in and after receiving a little help setting a couple parameters it worked! With WebSmart, it’s all handled within a single function. It even manages the communications between the two systems.
Weems Hutto, a consultant to RVOS.



RVOS Farm Mutual Insurance Company of Texas is an insurance company that operates as a not-for-profit Farm Mutual insurance provider. Its focus is to supply insurance products to homeowners, farmers and ranchers in Texas. Since RVOS is owned by policyholders, any profit gleaned from business operations is retained to pay claims and offset future premium increases. With almost 68,000 members, RVOS has over $9 billion of insurance in force and is rated A- Excellent by A.M. Best.






As part of an iSeries-based insurance management system overhaul, RVOS wanted policyholder information to be available to hundreds of regional agents and underwriters over the Web, as it had been for more than a decade on PC desktops running terminal emulation. RVOS had already made a significant investment in a widely used Web-based insurance quoting and submission package, and now needed to integrate aspects of the new Web-based system that exploits a Web services-based transaction service, with the legacy system.
