CASE STUDY: Maersk Container Industry

November 8, 2017

Maersk Container Industry (MCI), founded in 1990 and headquartered in Denmark, is the container manufacturing unit of the larger transportation and logistics firm, A.P. Moller-Maersk Group. MCI develops, manufactures and provides an array of different container types and sizes for Maersk and is active in business on a global scale, including within the U.S., China, the Netherlands, Singapore, South Africa and beyond.

When it came time for the container producer to select a new enterprise resource management system, it had several critical requirements that needed to be addressed

“Finding a global player was very important to us, as we are a global player as well,”



Before partnering with SK Global Software, MCI used a legacy ERP system that hadn’t been updated for seven years. The company didn’t have the option to upgrade the older software and instead needed to find a beneficial replacement.

MCI executives had to make the decision between using the basic features provided by the out-of-the-box Microsoft Dynamics software or work with SK Global Software to ensure that the ERP could integrate and function with the global banks MCI had partnerships with.

The company’s legacy software had never been fully implemented within the organization, and employees had to leverage manual workarounds using paper spreadsheets alongside the digital system.



In order to address these needs, MCI turned to SK Global Software and its Banking Automation Suite for Microsoft Dynamics 365. Initially, MCI rolled out SK Global’s Microsoft Dynamics 365 Banking Automation Suite at two of its production locations in China, with subsequent deployments taking place in Chile and at the company headquarters in Denmark.

“SK Global made everything easy, we look forward to a direct relationship.”



As a worldwide organization, finding a solution provider that could offer the required ERP features and help facilitate streamlined integrations with local and global banks was a challenge. Thankfully, MCI found everything it needed in its partnership with SK Global Software.

“They no longer have to worry about what bank they work with locally – all they have to do is point out the bank, and SK Global Software will take care of establishing the integration” ​

Because the solution is cloud-based, MCI now enjoys consistently fast performance at all of its locations, as well as improved efficiency and cost savings compared to its previous on-premise system.
