Gangwar launches NHDC's ERP system

Textiles Minister Santosh Kumar Gangwar launched the Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system for the National Handloom Development Corporation Ltd. (NHDC) in Varanasi on Sunday. NHDC has thus become the first PSU under the Textiles Ministry to have an ERP system. Its decision to implement an ERP system is in line with the Government's Digital India initiative, according to a Textiles Ministry statement.

The ERP system will significantly benefit the weavers, who are the primary beneficiaries of the yarn supply scheme of the Government. Weavers will gain from quicker delivery of NHDC material. The system will also result in higher transparency and accountability, making the corporation's activities visible for all stakeholders.

All processes - such as indenting, purchase order generation and invoice generation - will be performed through the ERP system itself. This reduces the lead time and also makes the system transparent. Any delay in the chain can be identified by the weaver, and by all other stakeholders. The elimination of paperwork and streamlining and transparency of the process will improve the efficiency and responsiveness of the supply chain. Procurement, inventory management and demand forecasting will also improve, resulting in high quality customer service, the statement said.

Some of the key benefits from implementing the ERP system include the availability of yarn at the best price to the weavers across the country by making the procurement process transparent, facility for weavers to access information anytime through a mobile app and saving time by not having to visit the NHDC office.

Mills will also be integrated in the system, in order to ensure that indenting and order confirmation are a part of the online ERP system. Weavers will be able to access the status of the despatch of the material from the mills such as the name of the transporter, freight, LR No etc.

In addition to NHDC, all other stakeholders such as mills, transporters, societies, weavers, Office of Development Commissioner (Handlooms), will have direct access to the information in the ERP system. The system will provide real-time information on NHDC activities occurring in all the parts of the country, the statement said. (SH)
