iPoint-systems Equip Turkish Household Goods Sector Leader with New Software Solution

December 21, 2012

REUTLINGEN, Germany, December 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –

iPoint are expanding their global presence into new territory. In the rapidly
developing Turkish market, the leading software partners for Sustainable Business Systems
were able to win over the Turkish market leader in the household goods sector. In the EU,
housewares producers are faced with innumerable regulations. In particular, surface
properties and pure substances of imported products are closely monitored. In order to
maintain profitability and ensure a complete overview of the country-specific standards,
the Turkish leader in the household goods sector has chosen the Supplier Portal Entry
(SEP) and the Compliance Agent (module SAM-M) from iPoint.

In June, the first contact was made. From then on, everything happened very quickly:
In November, the order was placed, and by March 2013, the full range of household goods
and consumer electronics will have already been tested thoroughly. The data from the tests
will be incorporated directly into the existing architecture. iPoint-systems can adapt
their products to meet the diverse needs of individual industries and integrate
intelligent interface definitions with existing software environments. This enables the
consideration and customer-specific implementation of new regulations for the Southeast
European household appliances manufacturer. In the future, the software solution will
monitor the supply chain and production process of the Turkish market leader in household
goods. Firstly, the Supplier Entry Portal manages the communication with the suppliers.
Secondly, the Teamcenter PDM systems and SAP used for development and purchasing processes
will be integrated with the iPoint Compliance Agent (SAM-M module, Substance Article
Mixture Management) for the analysis of product structures. This will ensure
standard-compliant export of the complete range of products, which mainly consists of
white goods and small electrical household items for the kitchen and bathroom, to various
countries. The products are tested for surface properties and pure substances level
according to the latest regulations, including REACh and the technically oriented RoHS
directive. iPoint’s software automates this process in-house and ensures that external
influences, such as new relevant regulations and standards of the importing countries are
incorporated into the test procedure regularly.

iPoint’s software is available in various languages and is adapted to the company’s
specific needs. This facilitates working on a global level and assists the company in
complying with international standards and regulations, which in turn simplifies export
processes. The systems used in the Turkish company up to now cannot cover this
comprehensively. All these factors were crucial in the decision process of the Turkish
houseware market leader for selecting the new solution from iPoint.
