We Have Migrated to a New ERP Solution
Enterprise Resource Planning – in other words, ERP!
AF Switchgear is pleased to announce that with the help of our key partners at Exel Computer Systems plc, we have recently migrated to the new EFACS E/8 Enterprise Resource Planning solution.
This is a major step-change for the organisation and involved a complete review of all legacy processes. The E/8 system was stress-tested to ensure that the technology and automation features coupled with the design innovation as a package, met our needs as a business and delivered the immediate benefits we were looking for.
Now the new ERP system is in place, further enhancements and modules will now be added to improve production scheduling, stock control, shop floor data capture plus field service reporting which will follow later this year.
Special mention must also go out to Richard King and Lee Harding both from Exel for their support throughout the whole process.
What is ERP?
Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) is a simplified integration of business process management and implements everything into one system. At AF Switchgear we use ERP for Production purposes mainly. This means it is easier to streamline projects and meet (and even surpass if possible) set deadlines.
