Deacom, Inc. announced today that TerraLink Horticulture, Inc., a leading independent Canadian manufacturer and distributer of horticultural products has licensed the DEACOM Enterprise Resource Planning system to handle their manufacturing operations.
With an expanding global presence and multiple warehouses to manage, TerraLink required an ERP solution that could handle their growth within an easy to manage single system. “When evaluating ERP systems, we based our decision on four criteria; whether the system was configured for our industry and capable of performing every function our business required; whether the system was able to adapt to the changes we required as we continue to grow; the vendor’s history of successful ERP implementations on time and on budget; and the vendor’s capabilities to provide support as needed – DEACOM was the clear choice,” stated Bill Pierce, CFO at TerraLink Horticulture Inc.
The DEACOM System seamlessly links all departments within a manufacturing company, from formulation to shipment, providing a comprehensive view of the entire operation. “Deacom focuses on providing the ‘last seven percent of functionality’ that often times is the difference between an ERP system that handles unique business requirements natively and an ERP system that needs to be customized,” said Scott Deakins, Operations Manager at Deacom. “In TerraLink’s case, the DEACOM solution will help them manage their industry’s seasonal demand fluctuations. DEACOM’s powerful MRP functionality will allow TerraLink to forecast based on historical orders and to price their products based on demand and raw material prices.”

TerraLink provides farmers, production managers and professional growers with a wide range of fertilizers, seeds, crop protection products, equipment, plastics, amendments and other inputs, directly or through distribution networks.
