A solution for engineering enterprises automates a tremendous number of production-related processes in manufacturing enterprises. These activities primarily involve technical preparation, production planning and set-up, logistics, economics, asset management, sales, invoicing, communication with banks and the like.
A solution for companies focused on the development and especially the production of electrical engineering products. It is primarily intended for manufacturers, or processors, of finished products and component manufacturers.
The HELIOS system has a broad range of applications in companies focused on the production of fibres, including the automotive industry. Comprehensive support for the entire production process, from ordering, to planning, production orders and shipping. The production process is typically divided into two production phases: Weaving mill (production of plain fabric) and Finishing plant (finishing of chemical or mechanical properties, appearance, etc.)
Flexibility and a high level of transparency throughout the entire production process, and thereby the ability to respond to requirements and trends related to the individual demands of customers depending on the market and lifestyle, are key in the food industry. Keeping up to date with legislation and other regulations governing food production and food product handling is also important. Traceability is key in all phases of the production process, in terms of inputs, and the technology, machinery and workers involved.
Manufacturers of plastic components are some of the main subcontractors in the automotive industry. The HELIOS system is primarily focused on support for injection moulding processes for thermoplastics, but we also have experience with other methods, including standard pressing. Long lead times are often associated with the production of plates, meaning labour productivity is very dependent upon batching.
The production process within this type of manufacturing is defined by the chemical transformation of processed raw materials and compounds, or at least the use of production equipment and separation processes typical of chemical production (metallurgical industry, glass industry, distilling industry, food industry and others...). The production of chemicals is very similar to the production of foodstuffs and follows nearly the same principles.
The construction industry is very specific and employs completely different processes for managing projects and structures compared to the principles used by other industries. The construction industry is primarily focused on individual orders and is closely connected to the business and economic aspects of the system. It is necessary to monitor an order from the phase of a potential business transaction, to implementation and on through the warranty period within the construction industry. Typical characteristics include significant differences in the characteristics of projects, which requires a high level of adaptability in terms of the system to record completely different parameters over a diverse range of project types.
Special production solutions for the agricultural industry. Agriculture is characterised by its high dependence on the weather and by the fact that planning is significantly affected by external factors. This raises the need for a tool to manage and monitor conditions and calculate results within the context of changing conditions.
The HELIOS system provides comprehensive solutions for retail operations (POS), including all related specifics. This includes all the necessary corporate agenda and related connections to all important areas, including finance, the warehouse, controlling, eShop, etc., in a single system. An integral part is a refined central warehouse system and communication with individual points of sale using online and offline connections. A given is electronic sales records and communication with carriers.
The wholesale industry is characterised by a tremendous volume of receipts and physical quantities, which places significant demands in terms of the organisation of work activities, records of goods in stock and subsequent movements involving these goods. Electronic communication with both vendors and customers is a given (B2B and B2C).
E-commerce is a specific industry applied across the other industries supported by the HELIOS system. The digitalisation of business and its shift to the Internet is the result of demand for speed, traceability, simplicity and satisfaction among business partners by using modern technologies. Terms such as B2C, B2B, e-shop and the like are typical for e-commerce. Delivery services are closely connected to this industry.
Involved in investigative and security activities? The HELIOS information system has a solution to handle the production, delivery, installation and service of security, protection and surveillance systems.
The HELIOS information system’s solution for the transport industry is primarily intended for companies using trucks and passenger cars as well as other equipment to accomplish their activities, both as their primary line of business and simply as overheads. Transport overlaps other specialised industries and the scope of its utilisation ranges from comprehensive fleet solutions to the use of driving logs and related records.
This solution is focused on companies providing full truckload (FTL, referred to as “Forwarding” in HELIOS) and less-than-full truckload (LTL, or “Collection service” in HELIOS terminology) for consignments delivered domestically or abroad. The HELIOS system provides continuous monitoring of in-transit consignments and permits the generation of a wide range of forms as needed based on unique consignment data. Air and maritime consignments are supported in addition to standard road consignments.
This solution is designed for companies doing business within the EU obliged to report data to Intrastat and those doing business wherever customs clearance is required. The HELIOS system provides an easy way to prepare monthly Intrastat reports and customs declarations and to maintain records of all types of customs and tax warehouses. Secure communications with the customs authorities using the services of certified VAN operators is a given.
Support for this industry is primarily based on the operative planning of operating activities and in monitoring completed work, primarily in the form of hours worked by personnel and machinery, and accompanying records of the costs directly incurred by such activities. Primary operations and ancillary economic processes and related records are identified in the HELIOS system using key common code lists to enable an order to be broken down into individual components or an activity from a hierarchical code list of activities depending on the documents establishing the organisation. These code lists may include locations at which operating activities were performed. Common code lists are the primary identifier used in the system for operating records and related costs in accounting. An integral part of the information system for technical services is the unique and verifiable differentiation between primary business activities and ancillary economic activities for all facilities and related economic transactions.
This solution in the HELIOS system is intended for companies that focus on accounting, personnel and HR services and that provide tax advisory or audit services. Accounting in many instances requires that data be transmitted from customers. The HELIOS system provides a comprehensive solution for all internal processes, and supports the electronic transmission of data between the client part of the system and those parts operated by the accounting firm.
The HELIOS system is perfect for companies providing warranty and post-warranty service, as well as other services of an individual nature. Primary attributes are support for compliance with SLA conditions, planning of service work, including scheduled maintenance, and the like. The service industry is very closely linked to sales and warehousing with respect to order management, the availability of spare parts or alternatives, consumables, etc. One of the primary characteristics is the ability to invoice both services and spare parts directly in the field and undoubtedly support for modern trends in the automatic identification of maintenance requirements (Industry 4.0).
