Streamlined processes and increased production productivity

Legacy systems and processes couldn’t keep pace with rapid expansion

After a period of expansion Swan EMS found it increasingly difficult and time-consuming to manage functions such as accurate stock control, reporting, costing and traceability. Their legacy system, Sage 50 with a bolt-on manufacturing solution, was inefficient and unstable, absorbing a lot of administration time and impacting productivity.

The right partner with the right solution

Swan EMS wanted a Sage business partner with a strong reputation to implement a robust and seamlessly integrated accounts and ERP solution across all departments. We were able to demonstrate both industry expertise and deep knowledge of the Sage 200 systems and were chosen to implement the desired solution: Sage 200 Professional with ERP modules including Bill of Materials, Works Order Processing, MRP, MPS, Capacity Planning and Shop Floor Data Capture.

“Sage 200 Manufacturing and Prosys Computing have been pivotal to our growth. As well as extensive time and cost savings, this manufacturing system can grow with us.”
