Ron Books, President and CEO of ECi Solutions is very excited to be extending the reach of the company's time and money saving manufacturing ERP solution in the European manufacturing market.
"We already have more than 40 clients in several manufacturing sectors in the UK and Ireland using M1 manufacturing ERP systems. These clients use M1 on a daily basis to make their shops more efficient. In this economy, efficiency is key; it is extremely important to the health and long-term stability of a business," says Books.
The global marketing and sales division of ECi Solutions have invested heavily into furthering M1 manufacturing ERP software in Europe, injecting additional resources into all parts of their operation including customer support, implementation and training, as well as sales and marketing, an action Senior Vice President Mike Gibson is confident will set M1 up as a leading manufacturing ERP solution in the UK and Europe.
ECi Solutions' M1 is a manufacturing enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution, providing total integration and automation from quoting through to invoicing.
Designed for small-to-medium manufacturers to help improve processes, M1 promises to save businesses time, resources and money. M1 gives manufacturers the ability to give customers accurate cost estimates, and as it is programmable in multiple languages, M1 is also suitable for international business.
"M1 has been very successful in Australia and North America," says Books.
"Our software is installed from very small job shops all the way up to a Mazda automotive manufacturing plant in California. M1 has helped our customers cut time off their order processing, and to streamline their raw material and man hour usage," he adds.
In addition, this ERP software can help a manufacturer identify shop floor capacity problems at a glance and as such reduce on-hand inventory to boost cash flow.
It also provides an efficient method of collecting and controlling labour records, and there are several optional business modules available to allow the software to grow with the company. These options include a web storefront that allows a manufacturer's customers to manage accounts online.
Based in Melbourne Australia, ECi Solutions M1 has sales and support offices in Australia, the US and the UK.
"We offer 'follow the sun support,'" says Vice President of Sales ECi Europe, Paola White.
"No matter where you are located, we are available to help," she concludes.
