We have gained significant experience from deploying our new ERP in more than 20 countries over the past few years including the U.S. We are working very closely with your 3M authorized distributor to ensure a smooth transition as we continue to deploy our ERP. We are deploying in the U.S. in a phased approach. The next planned phase is for August 2, 2018 with our order entry processes and one of our warehouses in Dekalb, Illinois.
Immediately prior to ‘Go Live’ there will be a short blackout period of approximately one week when we will hold order processing while we transition to our new system, however this should not impact you.
Please continue to work with your 3M authorized distributor to ensure they are aware of your business and product needs to cover this transition period.
If you receive shipments directly from 3M, you may see additional data fields on your shipping documents. For example, you may see the addition of a 10-digit stock number. If you receive product certificates, this new information may appear and you may see shelf life expressed as an expiry date to make inventory management easier for you.
Thank you for your enduring support of 3M products and services.
