In addition to being cost effective, it is important that an ERP system be scalable.

As your business grows, your requirement for managing information evolves.


A good ERP solution will offer full functionality out of the box and will come with a set of more advanced/specific tools that can be purchased and implemented as needed.


This is where a mid-market ERP solution like Exact Macola works well.


Many divisions of larger companies require a comprehensive ERP system but do not have the budget to implement the large system their parent company uses.


Andrea Systems LLC selected Exact Macola to manage their Accounting, Inventory and Material Requirements Planning (MRP).


Andrea Systems manufactures audio amplifiers and intercom systems for commercial and military aircrafts.  The business was formed from a division of a larger corporation - Andrea Electronics Corporation.  From the start, they needed to implement a cost effective, scalable solution that would be in place by the time they moved into their new facilities.


"We immediately saw that Macola could do everything

we needed and more - very easily" 

- G. Bruce Cocks, General Manager of Andrea Systems LLC.


As a result, Andrea Systems was able to:

  1. Begin orders on the shop floor within 24 hours (up to ten days faster)
  2. Reduce costs by eliminating clerical positions required to re-key information
  3. Access data quickly and easily to make better business decisions and enhance day to day operations

Exact Macola's Shop Floor Control, Material Requirements Planning (MRP) and Bill of Material (BOM) functionality transformed vendor performance from a "paperwork nightmare" to a fully automated process eliminating unnecessary paperwork and production bottlenecks. 


In addition, the software's flexibility meant employees could easily access the information they needed and work with it in commonly used applications such as Microsoft Office increasing efficiency even further.
