Zildjian Increased Performance and Efficiency

The Zildjian Company has been synonymous with setting the standard for the development and manufacture of high-performance musical instruments since 1623. As the world’s leading maker of cymbals, drumsticks, and percussion mallets, Zildjian products are sold across the globe, under the Zildjian, Vic Firth, and Balter brands, and are the standard to which all other cymbals, drumsticks and mallets are measured.

Zildijan achieved massive performance and efficiency increases with the upgrade to the latest SyteLine version. They saw massive performance increase on order entry and report generation. Existing modifications to the previous version of SyteLine were also uplifted and improved as part of the upgrade process, resulting in tremendous improvement in workflow.

After the upgrade was completed, staff reported greatly increased efficiency due to both performance increases and user interface improvements. This allowed Sales Support staff to respond to customers more quickly with relevant information and documentation through reporting. In addition, multiple versions of forms and reports were standardized during the implementation and upgrade process which greatly decreased the burden on support staff generating modifications.
