Fabrication

Increasing focus on efficiency means that it is imperative that fabricators manage their materials in the best possible way and find the most effective production routes. E-Max ERP gives fabricators the ability to do both.

QA WeldTech Case Study

After a strategic business review, QA Weld Tech, a leading provider of integrated welding and engineering services to the oil and gas and petrochemical industries worldwide, were looking to improve their in-house information gathering and storage. Having identified that multiple Excel spreadsheets and Access databases across different departments were no longer sufficient to support the company’s growth, the management team sought a solution to enable them to bring all of QA Weld Tech’s data into one place. In an increasingly challenging economic environment, their objective was to use this information to make process improvements and create a more efficient company.

E-Max Systems were brought on board to provide a solution with their ERP software. Since implementing E-Max in 2012, QA Weld Tech have seen significant improvements in:

  • Decision making

  • Provision of fast and meaningful data

  • Time-savings

all of which have led to numerous process improvements and improved production planning.
