Nagarjuna Agrichem Limited (NACL) has 905 employees, spread over 19 states across India in 3 manufacturing plants and warehousing facilities along with 32 sales & marketing offices. NACL wanted to enter the export market as soon as possible. The requirement was for a business strategy and IT infrastructure that supported existing business and the planned expansion. Nagarjuna Agrichem had to set up the requisite IT infrastructure by creating online ERP to take care of inventory, sales, accounting, production, etc. It also felt the need for a higher degree of collaboration within the organization. After evaluating the Microsoft solution, NACL opted for the Lotus portfolio of collaborative solutions. The choice was made primarily for the power of the collaborative environment it could provide.
