Uni of Hertfordshire and 123 Insight in MRP education partnership

New partnership aids SME manufacturers

The University of Hertfordshire (UH) and 123 Insight Limited have entered into a partnership to educate local businesses in the benefits of implementing the 123insight MRP system into manufacturing and assembly operations. Working in tandem with the UH’s existing knowledge transfer partnership programmes, a series of production management workshops has been scheduled to allow companies to not only see where their business could benefit, but also how to avoid many of the cost traps associated with implementing traditional ERP/MRP systems.

The workshops are held at the Hatfield campus and run for half a day. In this time attendees have an opportunity to see the 123insight system in action, as well as understand how the UH’s knowledge transfer partnerships can benefit their business and staff.

123insight a comprehensive production management system, covering everything from initial estimates and quotes, sales and purchasing, full stock, shop floor control, capacity planning, despatch, invoicing with accounts integration and interfacing options.

The UH has already implemented several educational licences of 123insight. Said Keith Bevis, Business Manager for the School of Aerospace, Automotive and Design Engineering at UH, “We have ongoing student projects exploring the benefits of 123insight. We believe it can harness business improvements by controlling the flow of information. We can see the opportunities for using this tool as we support local companies in our Knowledge Transfer Programmes.”

Guy Amoroso, Managing Director of 123 Insight Limited, added; “I am delighted to be working with the University of Hertfordshire, providing support to their local manufacturing community and university teaching programmes. 123insight is an innovative and compelling case for manufacturers to make real business improvements and productivity gains, without any of the disadvantages, normally associated with traditional business systems.”

The next production management workshop is scheduled at 10am on Wednesday 12th April 2006 at the University. Companies wishing to attend can book online at Spaces are limited, so early booking is recommended.
