Industry: Media

OEC Graphics celebrated its 100-year anniversary in 2012. It focuses on prepress, high-volume printing, and plate manufacturing. Their account managers take orders, track production, and control complex costs across 10 national facilities, all by using FileMaker. Codence has extensively integrated accounting across all aspects of their system to deliver real-time, comprehensive financial data.

Isolation Holding them Back

OEC Graphics runs on FileMaker. They use it to track orders, manage jobs, communicate with customers, and even track coffee supplies. The FileMaker platform provides users with remarkable insight into order statuses, efficiency with placing new orders, and easy management of complex delivery details. OEC keeps this complex system running with an in-house team of experts who tailor and fine-tune apps to manage every detail of their business, with one notable ‌exception: Accounting.

Perfect Integration

The team at OEC embarked on an ambitious plan: create the next generation of their ERP system and fully integrate Genesis Accounting across the board. One of the key requirements for the team was the ability to deliver deep business metrics of profitability by customer, product line, geography, or department. With eight locations and hundreds of employees, it was vital for OEC to view their business data across multiple lines and be able to analyze millions of rows of data on demand. Codence and OEC were able to seamlessly integrate information between production and accounting and to unlock the power of real-time reporting in their ERP.

OEC Breaks Accounting out of the Box

OEC Graphics is the largest and oldest privately-held pre-media company in North America, having recently expanded to the West Coast and Canada. OEC Graphics is the first North American prepress facility to be HD Flexo certified and partners with corporations such as DuPont, EskoArtwork, Screen USA, and Kodak.
