Yokohama Tire Canada – Custom Quoting System  


Portfolio Description

Background and History  

For over 100 years, Yokohama has been a world leader in the development of outstanding tire designs and technology, giving drivers better control on the road. Since its establishment in 1917, they have devoted themselves to advancing the leading edge of the industry. 

The Problem 

Yokohama was using manual processes to create and approve custom pricing quotes, despite having several line-of-business systems deployed. 

Their challenges were: 

  • Manual processes were time consuming for staff 
  • Cross-company collaboration was difficult 
  • They lacked visibility into their business processes 

Our Solution 

 Spot Solutions connected these systems via Microsoft SharePoint. The expertly developed custom system was then fully integrated with our client’s ERP system, JD Edwards, improving their competitive advantage and profitability.  

 The Impact 

Spot Solutions was able to help Yokohama achieve an 89% reduction in process cycle time. 

 Now they have: 

  • Improved visibility into business processes 
  • Cross-company collaboration 
  • Increased staff productivity
