GLOVIA INTERNATIONAL becomes FUJITSU GLOVIA, INC.

April 1, 2015

Name Change for Manufacturing ERP Software Company Reflects Continued Commitment from Fujitsu to Develop Quality ERP Products

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (April 1, 2015) — GLOVIA INTERNATIONAL, INC., has been renamed FUJITSU GLOVIA, INC., as part of a re-branding that reaffirms its Japanese parent's commitment to the continued development of best-in-class manufacturing ERP software.

The company recently unveiled the newest version of its signature enterprise resource planning system GLOVIA G2 V3 and has begun an aggressive year-long campaign to introduce the product to the manufacturing marketplace.

"By becoming FUJITSU GLOVIA, INC., our company can more clearly communicate the long and productive relationship we've had with our corporate parent, Fujitsu Limited, and its continued commitment to technological achievement in information and communication technologies," said Chikara Ono, President and CEO of FUJITSU GLOVIA.

Fujitsu Limited, founded in 1935, is a leading information and communication technology company, with approximately 162,000 employees supporting customers in over 100 countries. The Fujitsu Group holds approximately 100 thousand patents worldwide.

Since becoming a reseller of Glovia manufacturing ERP software more than a decade ago, Fujitsu Limited steadily increased its involvement with the El Segundo, Calif., company. Fujitsu acquired Glovia in 2000, making it a wholly owned subsidiary. Not only does Fujitsu Limited provide Glovia's extended ERP solutions to manufacturers — as a global manufacturer of information and communication technology products itself, the company is also an end user. Glovia ERP software is now implemented in more than 50 Fujitsu subsidiaries worldwide.

Ono added: "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."

Designed for small-, medium- and large-sized manufacturers, including Tier 1, 2 and 3 suppliers to the automotive, aerospace and defense, and electronics industries, as well as mixed-mode manufacturers, the new GLOVIA G2 V3 release enhances GLOVIA G2's innovative, highly visual user interface with intuitive, uncluttered screens that walk the end user through each step of the work process, making it easy to use, even for non-ERP experts. The resulting manufacturing ERP software is highly adaptable, offering universal use on any device, operating system or browser with full database support on SQL Server 2014 and Oracle Database 12c.

GLOVIA G2 provides full support for manufacturers using a variety of lean manufacturing philosophies, including MRP, Kanban, Seiban and JIT, and supports lean business principles not only for manufacturing, but also for other functions of the business, including accounting, invoicing, sales and inventory management.

Glovia International Announces Release of Manufacturing ERP Software GLOVIA G2 version 3

January 27, 2015

GLOVIA G2 V3 runs on any platform, features easy-to-use, highly visual interface that simplifies work-flow for non-ERP experts and improves end-user productivity

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (January 27, 2015) -- Discrete manufacturing ERP software company Glovia International, Inc., a Fujitsu Company, has released a new version of its signature enterprise resource planning system GLOVIA G2.

The new GLOVIA G2 V3 release enhances GLOVIA G2's innovative, highly visual user interface with intuitive, uncluttered screens that walk the end user through each step of the work process, making it easy to use for non-ERP experts. This manufacturing ERP is highly adaptable, offering universal use on any device, operating system or browser with full database support on SQL Server 2014 and Oracle Database 12c.

Designed for small-, medium- and large-sized manufacturers, including Tier 1, 2 and 3 suppliers to the automotive, aerospace and defense, and electronics industries, GLOVIA G2 V3 offers existing and new customers several advantages over other manufacturing ERP systems:

  • Fully mobile, universal system — All G2 transactional capabilities can now be conducted on both desktop and mobile devices, including those deploying Android, Apple, and Windows operating systems, using either mouse or touchscreen navigation.
  • HTML5/Java-script user experience — All modules in this manufacturing ERP software feature full functionality across all industry standard browsers including Internet Explorer (Desktop and Metro), Chrome, Firefox, Opera and Safari.
  • Flexible, intuitive navigation — Options for menu-less or traditional navigation and function keys for rapid navigation provide end users with software that can accommodate any work style preferences, eliminating the need for extensive product training or ERP system experts when switching systems.
  • Improved end-user productivity — A seamless workflow and color-coded, "traffic light" style alerts simplify the work process by providing end users with only the screens and data they need to complete their task.

"GLOVIA G2 V3 is the culmination of two years of development work to future-proof our customers' investments in manufacturing ERP software by providing a system that leverages the latest technology and offers scalability as our customers grow," said James Gorham, executive vice president.

"Our company believes that not only should manufacturing operations run efficiently, but that lean principles can be applied to other areas as well, such as accounting, inventory and purchasing," he said. "This software release incorporates functional and interface improvements that help all areas of our customers' businesses work more productively."

GLOVIA G2 V3 builds on more than 40 years of domain experience in the development of comprehensive manufacturing ERP systems for automotive, aerospace and defense, and electronics suppliers. GLOVIA G2 is well known for its depth of functionality and lower cost-of-ownership, with two deployment options available: on-premise software and an on-demand, cloud-based ERP solution.

Additional features that separate GLOVIA G2 from other manufacturing ERP software include:

  • Innovative user experience — A flattened spreadsheet-like grid structure removes repetitive re-keying of information between modules to improve end-user productivity.
  • Compatibility with multiple lean manufacturing methodologies — G2 provides full support for manufacturers using a variety of lean manufacturing philosophies, including MRP, Kanban, Seiban and JIT, and supports lean business principles not only for manufacturing, but also for other functions of the business, including accounting, invoicing, sales and inventory management.
  • Integration with other management software — G2 modules can be implemented alongside other management software, enabling companies to install needed modules without losing their prior software investment.
  • Better ROI and reduced cost-of-ownership — Two deployment options provide affordable manufacturing ERP solutions for a wide variety of companies.
  • Highly flexible, scalable solution — This manufacturing ERP software provides significant flexibility to accommodate any changes to the customer's business over its lifetime, including mergers and divestitures, and the addition of new products, divisions and plants.
  • Global functionality — G2 easily manages the operations of single-location manufacturers as well as multinational businesses using multiple currencies and languages, in multiple countries and time zones.

The company plans to demonstrate its new GLOVIA G2 V3 manufacturing ERP software at Houstex 2015 at the George R. Brown Convention Center on Feb. 24-26 at Booth #452.
