Butser Rubber Ltd
Manufacturers of high quality rubber mouldings, gaskets and metal to rubber bonded products.
|This case study received a 'Highly Commended' award in the '2009 The Manufacturer awards'. They replaced their Access database with 123insight, going live within 4 weeks of the training. They now run several divisions with the one system and reduced paper usage by 90%.|
Image On Food Ltd
(Stoke Heath, Shropshire)
Manufacturer of gingebread novelties and other food products.
|Image On Food Ltd previously relied on a series of spreadsheets, with provided limited traceability, inaccurate stock control, no delivery schedules and poor leadtimes. 123insight provided a better solution that industry-specific bakery software, reduced stock of high turnover items by 5% and massively improved leadtime accuracy.|
Mantec Engineering Ltd
(Manchester, Greater Manchester)
CNC precision engineering services.
|As one of 123insight's longest customers, Mantec have seen many significant changes since installing the software in 2000. Several of their blue chip clients have commented that 123insight is better than their high end ERP systems.|
(Edgbaston, West Midlands)
Application centre for the utilisation of advanced materials.
|Founded in 2006 after receiving DTI and AWM funding, the company wanted a system to run their manufacturing from the outset., based on the directors' previous experience. They saw 123insight at Sheffield Hallam Uni, and were live on the system within two months of starting implementation. They are using 123insight's CRM capabilities to implement some of their QA systems, and the system is now a core part of their accreditations for aerospace, automotive and medical industries.|
(Potters Bar, Hertfordshire)
Government funded organisation managing quality and safety of biological materials.
|After deciding to replace their Oracle database and Excel spreadsheets due to lack of integration, they investigated systems costing up to £80k, finally settling on 123insight as 'the rental was cheaper than the maintenance of the other systems.' NIBSC have achieved 15% growth without increasing staff and have drastically reduced stock inaccuracies.|
(Huddersfield, West Yorks)
Manufacturers of private label sealants, fillers and adhesives.
|Polyseam is unusual in that they have a number of mixing machines which can manufacture the same product, but the methods of manufacture would differ depending on which one is used. Their existing Dos based system was complex and expensive to support/modify. They selected 123insight over systems costing £90k after seeing the system at Huddersfield Uni. Stockholding reduced by 60%, with inaccuracies massively reduced. They now also run FIFO stock control.|
Quelch Engineering Ltd
CNC milling and turning specialists.
|Quelch were tired of paying for costly and slow consultancy every time they needed changes to their Dos based manufacturing system, so they selected 123insight over systems costing £25k+. Initially they thought that they required finite scheduling, but 123insight's visibility removed this need. Leadtimes, traceability and reporting also massively improved.|
RH Technical Industries Ltd
Manufacturers of plastic labels, nameplates fascias and membrane switch .panels
|Nominated for awards in the MITCON awards 2008 and The Manufacturer 2008 awards. RH replaced their ageing AS/400 system and saw massive savings, including £20k on more efficient ink stock, accelerated MRP runs from half a day to literally seconds, and reduced stockholding by 20%.|
Systech Instruments Ltd
Manufacturers of industrial gas analysis equipment.
|Systech's previous DOS-based MRP system vendor had been acquired by another company, and they saw pressure from the vendor to move to a much larger system at great expense. After selecting 123insight they saw a massive reduction in paper. They are also working with 123insight to develop the Service Repair Centre product.|
