ERP Provider Experiencing Strong Growth as Manufacturers Seek To Increase Efficiency in Wake of Covid and Brexit

E-Max Systems has recruited two new ERP Implementation Consultants to their Projects division to manage the seamless implementation of E-Max ERP, the leading ERP solution for manufacturing and engineering SMEs, to new and existing clients.

Osama Alaskari joins E-Max from Teesside University, where he has provided advice, recommendations and solutions for manufacturing efficiency to multiple companies. Alaskari is highly experienced in both the theory and practice of making efficiency improvements in manufacturing, and has published numerous articles on his research findings across the use of ERP systems and Lean Manufacturing.

“I am excited to be working with E-Max and our new clients to deliver new solutions in manufacturing efficiency. There is no doubt that an ERP system brings a company opportunities to benefit from time and cost savings, with resources deployed more effectively and a clear view of all operations across the business. To achieve maximum benefit from an ERP system, it must be implemented properly, which is where I see myself providing greatest value to our customers as I work with them to determine their most efficient and streamlined processes.” Osama Alaskari, ERP Implementation Consultant. 

Ryan Leung comes to E-Max with a BEng in Mechanical Engineering. He has held a number of engineering roles, most recently that of Production Engineer. Leung has also held project management positions, and has several years’ experience of using ERP systems.

“As companies strive to overcome the challenges created by Covid and Brexit, it will be critical that they put systems in place that work for them. As a time-served engineer myself, I can clearly understand the issues our customers face on a daily basis and I’ll be using my knowledge and experience to help them implement E-Max ERP as the robust solution to these issues.” Ryan Leung, ERP Implementation Consultant.

The first half of 2021 has been the strongest sales period in E-Max’s 23 year history, with demand for E-Max’s impressive ERP software showing no sign of slowing. The company has continued to focus on its primary market of manufacturing and engineering SMEs, and is enjoying the resulting gains from this approach.

Robert Johnston, E-Max Systems’ Managing Director, observes, “Since the start of 2021, we are delighted to have experienced a significantly increased number of enquiries for, and subsequent sales of, E-Max ERP. After a difficult 2020, we believe many companies in the manufacturing and engineering sectors have recognised the need to streamline their processes and perform efficiently to ensure their future survival. They can achieve this by implementing a true manufacturing ERP system, like E-Max ERP, that will enable companies to hold less stock, improve their scheduling and resource usage, and give visibility of current and forecast orders so they can plan ahead. Because E-Max ERP has been designed by engineers for engineers, we are able to give the companies in these sectors exactly what they need, and our customers are responding to this by recommending our system to others in their supply chain.

Implementing an ERP system can have its challenges, especially for companies that have not done so previously. This is why E-Max has expanded our team with experienced individuals, like Osama and Ryan, who can share their expertise and knowledge of best practice implementation strategies. We are also rolling out a new implementation process to ensure our customers have a smooth and productive implementation experience.”

E-Max ERP is an end-to-end business software application, which enables a user to take an initial enquiry through to final accounts. Currently available as an on-premise or hosted solution, the company will be offering a cloud-based option of E-Max ERP later this year.
