Glovia History

Setting The Standard For Over 40 Years

Glovia is one of the world's most experienced and solidly backed enterprise software firms. For over forty years we have helped manufacturers to manage, improve and grow their businesses.

Today's product – GLOVIA G2 – was first released in 1990 as Xerox Chess. Since its introduction, the product has been extended and enhanced many times but has always retained the original design concept of being the best ERP solution for manufacturing companies. The technology basis of a single integrated real-time data schema on a single code set has been maintained throughout, therefore allowing all of our customers to migrate to newer releases without fear or indecision.

We go beyond what you would expect from a typical ERP vendor — in technology, functionality, service and value. Our extended ERP solution helps manufacturers overcome their most pressing business challenges, whether on the factory floor, in the boardroom or with their customers and suppliers.

The comprehensive functionality of our fully integrated solution enables customers to manage every aspect of the product lifecycle — from design, manufacturing and fulfillment to installation, service and support.

Glovia's extended ERP solution helps manufacturers in over 1,000 sites manage their global businesses effectively, by supporting multiple languages, multiple currencies, and multiple complex business structures. Glovia fits the needs of engineer-to-order, make-to-order, high volume and mixed-mode manufacturing.

While our name has changed over the years, our dedication to our customers has not. As part of Fujitsu, we continue to invest in our solution so we can meet your needs — today, tomorrow, and beyond.

Part of Fujitsu

When our customers choose Glovia, they get much more than an industry-leading ERP solution. They also get the resources, expertise and support of one of the world's largest and most successful technology companies: Fujitsu.

Since beginning as a reseller more than a decade ago, Fujitsu has consistently increased its involvement with our company. Fujitsu acquired Glovia in 2000, making us a wholly owned subsidiary. Glovia software is now implemented in over 50 Fujitsu subsidiaries worldwide.

So what does this mean to you?
