MIDMARKET MANUFACTURING LEADERS SPEAK ERP
Hear how midmarket manufacturers across Europe have leveraged our ERP solutions to build products that span the entire supply chain: products you eat, use and wear; products you live and work in; and products that keep you safe and comfortable.
The life of our company has evolved right alongside the evolution of Clipper itself. The Clipper system has progressed our development and growth, particularly in a demanding industry—with new releases of the system always anticipating our needs. Our loyalty speaks for itself. The system is the central point of Tommasi; everything goes through it, and it is the Alpha and Omega of our organization.
“I don’t think I ever put a financial value on the time spent on things, but 123insight is not only the cheapest employee in the company, it’s also the hardest working. You don’t appreciate the areas that it will save you money until it’s in place.”
Thanks to the level of integration between our ERP system and CAD/PDM, we have saved up to 50% of our designers' time. We have dramatically reduced the time between designing a device and implementing it into production. It used to take about a month; today it takes one or two days. We feel stronger thanks to the possibilities offered by the Impuls system. Now our solutions are often better than those of our foreign competitors.
Everything related to our production is automated in Silog ERP, which has become an essential tool. The system is scalable, well thought out, and aligns to our business needs. Its configuration capabilities guarantee us flexibility and autonomy.
Our production line is fully digital—from the customer order to the finished product—including the management of our tool store. We have chosen to place the Helios ERP at the center of this digital process. It is the central element of our production universe and our digital tools, and all systems communicate with one another: our ERP, our CAD / CAM software, our CMMS, and our statistical process control and simulation solution. This automation has allowed us to reduce our manufacturing cycles from 6 months to 1.5 months!
ProConcept ERP is an open, flexible tool with a powerful technical base, so we have been able to develop our own interfaces and integrate with other internal point solutions. As a result, it aligns perfectly with our needs. I have been working directly with the ProConcept team for almost 10 years now. The stability of our relationship, combined with the solid skills of the employees, allows us to face the future with confidence.
The gains that Sylob brought us were quickly felt. First, we were able to optimize business processes—improving our productivity around customer-facing processes by at least 50 percent. On the production side, the time savings were also widely noticeable. The communication between our ERP system, our traceability system, and our production equipment has enabled us to automate processes—reducing the risk of error to almost zero. We have quality, real-time information to make the right decisions. Overall, we have gained a 30 percent boost to productivity.
"Even though we are 10 years down the line we are always on the latest version. It still feels very fresh, sharp, and up-to-date, and that's without any big capital outlay."
”If you work in retail, Garp’s size management functionality is awesome! The matrix set-up really makes things so much easier to handle.”
Remaining release-capable despite process individualization was a deciding factor for us when purchasing abas ERP software.
