ERP for Industrial Equipment Manufacturers

Machine assembly manufacturers face various challenges in their project based environment. It’s likely that no two jobs are exactly the same which adds an extra layer of complexity to costing, planning and scheduling each product. In addition, sourcing materials from an increasingly globalized supply chain means questionable quality and delivery times of important components of the final product.

Exact Macola ERP offers the ability to gain visibility into the supply chain by opening up the lines of communication between the business, their vendors and customers via secure portal technology. With this, manufacturers can see the status of their orders and their customers can see the status of their orders as well as access pertinent documents such as manuals and drawings they may need. Customers and vendors in a different country? Exact Macola ERP comes standard with multi-language and multi-currency capabilities.

In addition to core ERP functionality, Exact Macola ERP offers industrial equipment manufacturers robust project management functionality complete with customizable workflows to accommodate specific business processes from project intake to design and engineering change orders to quality/compliance requirements, right through to final delivery and after sales service.

Exact Macola’s robust manufacturing technology offers just enough flexibility to configure the solution to specific business processes while maintaining a consistent and structured environment for data capture and reporting.

Some of the key features that help equipment manufacturers achieve optimal customer service levels, reduce inventory costs and effectively manage quality and compliance standards and improve operational efficiency include:

  • Document management
  • Integrated project management
  • Inventory Management
  • Workflow
  • Product Tracking
  • Quoting and Estimating
  • Supply Chain Management
