Campfire Interactive Inc., a provider of portfolio profitability management in the automotive sector based in Ann Arbor, announced that driveline solution provider Neapco will expand the implementation of Campfire’s software.
The new implementation includes adding support for supplier request for quotation and corporate sustainability initiatives. This is the latest stage of the software launch that began in the first quarter of 2021.
“This will enable Neapco to manage their entire digital profitability backbone with one global enterprise system that provides immediate answers to complex business queries,” says Pradeep Senevirante, president and CEO of Campfire.
Neapco employs more than 3,200 at 11 locations worldwide. Before the new implementation, the company was leveraging Campfire’s software to standardize and enhance critical business processes and financial measures globally. This includes the Opportunity Management and Sales Forecasting module that was launched earlier this year.
“Campfire has established a reputation within the automotive community for supporting informed decision-making and unlocking profit potential,” says Ray Adamczyk, vice president of advanced manufacturing at Neapco. “We’ve turned to Campfire to streamline critical sales opportunity and vehicle program data management across the enterprise.
“This allows us to standardize critical business processes and financial measures, centralize the management of all information related to volume, cost, price, capacity, and timing; and respond to RFQs faster and with more accuracy. Results from earlier rollout fully validate our expectations; and we are continuing toward full implementation of an end-to-end solution.”
The two companies collaborated on a presentation during World Quality Week to communicate a shared vision and steps to advance process efficiency, product quality, and sustainability practices. To support this initiative, Campfire’s sustainability scorecard will be employed to capture, measure, and manage key sustainability value drivers from Neapco suppliers and to Neapco customers.
“For the world’s manufacturers sustainability is no longer optional,” says Chris Fenton, vice president of global quality, continuous improvement, and sustainability at Neapco. “By tracking such key areas as water consumption, CO2 emissions, energy consumption, and renewable energy down to the part level, Campfire allows us to extend sustainability in our sales and sourcing activities. As an industry leader, and steward of our planet, we embrace this responsibility and demand the same of our suppliers and partners.”
