SYSPRO, a provider of best-of-breed, award-winning enterprise resource planning (ERP) software for on-premise and cloud-based utilization, today announced that 360 Sheet Metal, a Vancouver-Washington based sheet metal manufacturer, has selected SYSPRO ERP to facilitate company growth. Serving the commercial heating and air conditioning market, the company custom produces ducts as well as sells accessory items, including fans, grills and louvers in addition to commodity items, such as sealers.
According to Joe Martin, company General Manager, 360 Sheet Metal Products searched for an ERP Solution to facilitate the transition from the "installation side" of the business to the "manufacturing side."
States Martin: “We ran a commercial air conditioning, heating install company for about twelve years. However, with our manufacturing arm fast growing, we closed the install company down and carried over the software, which was really more construction driven, not really manufacturing or wholesale driven." He continues: “We’ve grown approximately 30 percent per year over the last 6 years, so we needed new software…and required it soon.
“We went through the selection process, starting with potentially eight ERP systems…and we narrowed the field to three solutions. And, then we narrowed the choice to one -- SYSPRO."
Martin notes the reasons for the selection of SYSPRO: "It was the combination of the software and expertise of the local SYSPRO Reseller that caused us to go with SYSPRO ERP. We also liked the SYSPRO rapid implementation strategy and the availability of ready assistance from our local SYSPRO Reseller."
Martin explains the company’s anticipation: "We are looking to SYSPRO for inventory control, ordering and pricing on the customer side, and on the manufacturing side to keep track of the orders through the factory.
“SYSPRO will also get us organized on pricing structures and flow, so we can add more sales staff to cover our market, which consists of Oregon and Washington."
