ABOUT CT AUTOMOTIVE
CT Automotive supplies the plastic parts (Kinematic Trim) for car interiors. Typically, their involvement starts at the design concept clay model and ends in mass production with JIT service. Their headquarters are in Portsmouth, with manufacturing centres in Turkey and China, and distribution centres in the US and Japan.
The UK and China locations were especially keen to access D365 Business Central anywhere, using any browser. In addition, they were using a Mobile WMS which did not allow their warehouse management to be as efficient as desired.
CT Automotive Turkey wanted to take advantage of the new functionality of D365 Business Central. Their Country Localisation solution needed replaced, along with upgrading all their customisations to Extensions. On top of these challenges, the upgrade project was interrupted due to international travel restrictions during the Covid-19 lockdown.

CT Automotive were initially unsure whether the project could be completed on time due to travel restrictions. We overcame this by creating a virtual office between multiple locations using Microsoft Teams video calls during user acceptance testing, preparation for go live, and to provide post-go live support.
For the UK and China locations, the upgrade had enabled their workflow to be more efficient due to being able to set up multiple approvals in real time. We also implemented the Tasklet Extension to make warehouse management easier, faster, and align better with their business processes.
We improved their purchase order system by enabling forecast files to be automatically imported from customers to Business Central. This let CT Automotive plan their items and automatically create the appropriate number of purchase orders. In addition, their bank reconciliation was enhanced with a seamless payment integration, enabling them to generate payment files in Business Central that are imported to the bank for processing.
We also completed the Dynamics NAV upgrade for CT Automotive Turkey, carrying all customisations to Extensions on Business Central. This makes it much easier for their customisations to be maintained throughout any future projects. As well as this, a Turkish partner replaced the Country Localisation and we worked with them to integrate this with the rest of the Business Central upgrade.
