...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.
Contrec Manufacturing (UK) Ltd
We simply could not have made the transition from distributor to manufacturer without 123insight. We really do feel that we get value for money from it every month.
I M Kelly R & A Ltd
We chose 123insight because it was not overly complicated. Although it did everything you could pick and choose what you wanted to use and it did not affect the whole system if you chose not to use an element. The system was also far more cost-effective to obtain. The other systems we looked at started out at up to £30,000 but this reduced rapidly when we negotiated. Even the lease-based products were working out 3-4 times more expensive than 123insight.
Despite a new product launch we've not had to increase staff to cope with the demand… Support has been top notch.
Toucan Systems Ltd
ISO9000 is an ambition and certainly the traceability aspect of 123insight was a main reason for selecting it. We didn’t anticipate how useful it would become to us. The low startup cost is very significant when we compared it with any other MRP system we found out there. I think that 123insight has a unique offering.
Advanced Plastics & Composites Limited
The beauty of 123insight is that we could implement the system ourselves.
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.

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.
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 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.
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.
Since 2007 we've either been nominated or have won dozens of awards, due to the demonstrable return on investment our customers have seen after implementation. It's just further proof that 123insight is respected by our peers as well as being trusted by our customers.
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. 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.
