Bon Marine was established in 1990 in Varna. For these twenty years on the Bulgarian market, the company has grown significantly and also a few subsidiary companies were established. The holding provides services in marine and land transport and forwarding, logistic maintenance of infrastructure projects in Bulgaria and abroad, liner and ship agency, chartering, ship management, technical ship maintenance and others. The holding has own storage and warehouse facilities.
“The successful management of a business of this size requires proper planning for all the subsidiary companies and excellent coordination between them. Also appropriate monitoring and reporting tools are needed to present a view of the entire activities within all levels in the holding. The software we used to work with did not respond to our increasing needs. We made a decision to implement an integrated software system to centralize the management of all companies which would optimize the business processes and provide us opportunities to grow”, said Maria Vasileva, Project Manager, Bon Marine Holding
Bon Marine has chosen the most popular ERP system in Bulgaria – Microsoft Dynamics NAV and the company Intelligent Systems Bulgaria as a partner for the project.
In a short time in Bon Marine Holding were implemented the modules Financial Management, Sales, Purchases and Warehouse and in the beginning of the year all the companies started work with Microsoft Dynamics NAV. The system provides quick access to actual information, easy and standardized paperwork, flexible reporting and analyzing tools to employees and managers. Now the companies have a unified chart of accounts. Sales and purchase processes have been optimized as well. There were also developed several integrations among Microsoft DynamicsNAV, the internal transport tracking system and many external applications.
“Releasing a project for this kind of a company is a challenge for each ERP implementer. We put many efforts to provide Bon Marine with the integrated system that is flexible enough to meet their needs and reflect the specifics of the particular companies in the holding. We believe that with Microsoft Dynamics NAV and our company as their partner, Bon Marine Holding made the right choice for successful business development”, said Kalin Tzvetanov, Managing Director, Intelligent Systems Bulgaria.
Bon Marine Holding, together with its subsidiaries, is one of the leading companies in the marine business in Bulgaria. The holding provides logistic maintenance of major investment projects in Bulgaria and abroad, transport and forwarding, liner and ship agency, customs clearance, ship management, technical ship maintenance and others. The headquarter of the holding is based in Varna but it has offices in Sofia, Shumen, Turgovishte and Belene as well.
