August 1997 – July 2000
LEAF TOBACCO – A. MICHAILIDES S.A. – MICHAILIDES GROUP OF COMPANIES
31, I. Gogousi Street, Thessaloniki, Greece
I was the General EDP/I.T. Manager in this large multi-national tobacco industry which employed about 10.000 personnel, worldwide. The areas of my responsibilities were widespread and large. I was monitoring, controlled and was responsible for the computerised organisation, maintenance and expansion of a total of 10 factory plants (3 of them in Greece and the rest abroad), as well as the Headquarters (HQ). The total of users/terminals which my Department supported is 160, networked in 15 local LANs and linked up with the HQ with dial-up connections throughout the whole Group. I was the Manager of a total 5 colleagues in my Dpt. I personally installed NT networks in all the Group factories abroad in the following countries: FYROM, Bulgaria, Rumania, Slovakia, Lecce Italy, Ambra-Florence Italy and Ismir Turkey, as well as respective INFORMIX-based client-server applications. For a number of years, I was extensively involved in implementing heavy-industry barcode-based applications. All the systems that I have designed and implemented, functioned with success and aided in the more correct product monitoring.
I took over the installation, customisation, implementation, on-site technical support of a large financial package of one of the largest Greek software houses, INFORMER, the so-called IFS and a second Fixed Assets application, controlling the implementation against the initial analysis. I got an extensive practice and experience in the following administration financial tasks: Opening Accounting Accounts, Costing Centres, Projects, Reproduction/Spreading Rules, a yearly based greek Financial list submission called MYF (Suppliers), Financial Year Closing procedures, Outstanding Balances Transfers to the next financial year, database maintenance and optimisation, and in general, all the computerised tasks in which an Computerised-based Accounting/Financial system Administrator is involved in.
During a large period of time, I dynamically involved into the tobacco manipulation process, applied automated procedures and implemented automated production systems in the tobacco receivement, computerised control of inner-company raw material transportations that covered almost the whole geographical areas of Greece (120 warehouses all over Greece), product processing/manipulation within the industrial plants, as well as, raw materials and ready product warehousing.
During my employment, I managed to substitute many non-computerised procedures with computerised resulting in labor costs cut-downs and time efficiencies.
On a daily basis, I was on regular contact and successfully cooperated with a large number of colleagues, dealing with a large variety of problems, providing immediate technical, organisational and administration solutions and guidelines, in Greece and abroad.
I gained large experience in Barcode-based Personnel presences monitoring system.
The platforms that I worked on and developed professional industrial tools are the following: SCO UNIXWARE v.7.1 and v.7.1.1, UNIX System V Releases from 3 up to 4.3, INFORMIX RDBS v.6.x and v.7.x, INGRES in HP-UX 9000, SQL Server v.6.5 and v.7.0, POWERBUILDER v.5.x and v.6.x, NOVELL v.4.x, and v.5.0, NT Server v.4.0, BACKOFFICE v.4.0, C, C++, Microsoft Access 97, cord/cordless telecommunication systems in WAN, LINUX O.S. and many others.
For large times periods I installed and maintained numerous client-server applications in Microsoft Access 97 with SQL Server v.7.0 and I have gained extensive experience in all administrative levels of SQL Server v.7.0.
Until a certain time, on behalf of the Company, I was responsible for the analysis, support and implementation take-over of the ERP system of COMPUTER LOGIC (OMEGA TECHNOLOGY): I was in close co-operation with company’s General Project Manager, I was attending meetings with the C.L.’s analysts, I was studied and controlling the ERP’s modules (Financial, Human Resources, Production Control and Costing, Treasury, Commercial modules)
