As technology improves, companies must adapt to stay current with the times, and take advantage of new ideas and solutions that will improve their business. Here at Tella Tool we have recently taken the step of adding a new ERP system from Plex which will give us a single platform for all of our ERP operations.
ERP stands for Enterprise Resource Planning, and is a business process management software that allows a company to integrate back office functions related to technology, sales and human resources. At Tella Tool, we chose a cloud based ERP system so we would have a system that is accessible to us anywhere in the world at any time. The centralized service and infrastructure saves us from having to host the system on internal servers which we would have to maintain, and allows for regular updates for security and maintenance purposes.
One of the biggest advantages of implementing this new system was the ability to have customer interaction in real time. We can now perform transparent EDI transactions with our customers in the new system without the need for any additional external software. In our new ERP system, we also now have all the sales tracking software we need to track leads, and save and view our customer’s purchase history with us. The security of our new system is top of the line, from ironclad firewalls to automated security sniffers that make sure our data and our clients data is always secure.
Our new ERP system also gives us the ability to collect and integrate plant floor data including up time and downtime in one easy system. We can also monitor efficiencies and keep track of inventory easily with it. With the Manufacturing Execution System (MES) built into the ERP system, we can now connect every machine, device or console on the plant floor to the system, forming a cloud-based backbone that removes the need for third-party software and allows for new features and functions to be rolled out which keeps both Tella Tool and its customers on the leading edge of technology.
As a leading custom job shop, with state of the art capabilities for tooling, stamping, fabricating and machining, moving to a new ERP system with Plex is the next step in providing excellent service for our customers. For the latest company news and updates follow us on Twitter and LinkedIn.
