No risk - No commissioned sales people - No massive up-front cost
Covering everything from one-offs/bespoke or small batches through to high volume, process manufacturing or projects/contracts.
In-house, subcontract or a mix of both. 123insight is flexible enough for all customers to configure the standard product to meet their need.
Our smallest customer has a staff of just two, and our largest over 4500. From startups, SMEs to multi-nationals in excess of £200 million turnover.
From processing fish to satellite technology - we have customers spanning every manufacturing industry.
123 Insight's risk-free approach allows you to evaluate MRP without the sales pressure.
...just everything you need to make an informed decision. After attending an Evaluation Workshop you can move ahead to No-Obligation Training. Once completed you have all the knowledge you need to implement and go live. If you were to decide that 123insight was not suitable at that stage you can walk away with nothing to pay, and with a lot more knowledge than when you started.
"How to implement a manufacturing system"
From defining what you need, how to setup your team and the evaluation process, through to implementation, data exchange, the go-live and measuring success, this book is a tried and tested template for implementing any MRP system, not just our own.
Butser Rubber Ltd
123insight is so much more efficient than how we used to work - it’s taken out all of the running around as everyone has access to the same information. Our offices are like a rabbit warren and it could regularly take 10 minutes to find the person you needed to get an answer. 123insight certainly improves communication and has revolutionised what we do.
Mantec Engineering Ltd
Over the various versions used we have seen the product get progressively better. I’ve been very impressed with the drive and enthusiasm of the 123insight team - they are constantly striving to develop and improve it for all customers.
123insight has increased our visibility of everything that is going on and is central to our core IT strategy.
Refcool Refrigeration Ltd
The return on investment is very short for the level of investment we made. It’s within the first few months of use - almost instantaneous.
DRM Industrial Fabrics Ltd
Business is about managing risk. If you’re always dealing with the same people that you’ve learnt to trust it’s a big advantage. It’s easy to become friends with someone that you don’t have disputes with.
Despite a new product launch we've not had to increase staff to cope with the demand… Support has been top notch.

Many MRP/ERP systems have grown through acquisition, with companies being purchased and their products bolted on to the core system. MRP vendors often rely on customer dependency as an ongoing revenue source. 123insight was developed from the ground up to be a complete system that users could install themselves, requiring minimum support. It was also build with a low subscription, no-risk business model.
Our business model is completely different to the traditional approach. We were first in this industry to offer subscription before it even became 'a thing'. Our costs are greatly reduced as we don't have commissioned sales people, and by holding Evaluation Workshops around the UK or online INFO Exchange events each month we reduce the amount of man-hours that both we/prospects spend on the evaluation process. Customers implement the software themselves, with us carrying out installations remotely. Our average support call rate to the HelpDesk is under one call per customer per month. so we don't have to employ hordes of technical staff.
Every business is different, yet 123insight was designed from the outset to be as suitable for a company with only a handful of staff as it is for multi-nationals. We have customers in all shapes and sizes, covering all manufacturing types and business sectors. Take a look at some of our case studies to see if there are customers in your industry or that match your manufacturing type.
Correct! Attend the No-Obligation Training on the understanding that if you decide that 123insight's not for you, just walk away with nothing to pay. At that point, you know with certainty that 123insight will be suitable for your business. You simply register for the number of licences you need. We also offer a fixed-price implementation pack, so there's no expensive consultancy or hidden charges. Finally, it's just one low monthly subscription covering everything - software, support and updates - with no minimum contract period. Increase or decrease licences as you need to.
During implementation you have the option of using the Data Import Toolkit, which helps you to reshape your data from any other format to make it easy to import into 123insight. Once you're live, if you need to interface to any third party system our Software Development Kit (SDK) allows you access to safely communicate with the 123insight SQL database, safe in the knowledge that if either system is upgraded the SDK will maintain the link between the two without further updates required.
Hundreds of companies in the UK and around the world are using the system since the company's foundation in 2000. Take a look at our case studies, covering various industry sectors. You can also see our new '10 years on' series, detailing customers that have been using 123insight for over a decade, the continuing benefits they have seen and how the system has continued to suit their business, regardless of how it may have changed over the years.
123insight offers MRP connectivity to all major accounts systems, such as Sage, Pegasus, XERO and Access Dimensions. Choose between our accounts interfaces, which link 123insight's sales and purchase order processing with the accounts system, or seamless integration, allowing you to see accounts information directly within 123insight.
The book 'How to implement a manufacturing system' highlights the best practices and pitfalls when implementing an MRP/ERP system. We offer it free to attendees of our events (one copy per company) as we believe that it helps you to understand and plan effectively for the processes you will go through, regardless of the system you select. The book covers everything from understanding what you are likely to need from an MRP system (broken down by department), the internal barriers often faced, what data to import, the go-live period and how to measure success.
You can either request access to the online MRP Software Demo Movies or book to attend one of our events listed below. Once you've satisfied yourself that 123insight should be a good fit for your business then book to attend the six days of No-Obligation Training, after which you have everything you need to to implement and go live.
Pricing from £200 per month.
123insight's pricing is completely transparent. There's no initially massive up-front capital outlay that's traditionally associated with MRP. Instead, it's just a low monthly subscription (which is often less than the annual maintenance of other systems) with no minimum contract.

We host two types of event - the online INFO Exchange and Evaluation Workshop. Both events allow you to see the 123insight MRP/ERP software in a non-sales, no-pressure environment. The online INFO Exchange contains 50 minutes of content, while the Evaluation Workshop contains 2 ½ hours of content, allowing us to go into more detail of the product. The Evaluation Workshop event has allocated time to allow you to ask questions afterwards, and others will often ask questions that you haven't thought of.
