After several years of frustration with their incumbent ERP software, Impress Group, a leading supplier of specialist pressings and other specialist manufacturing services, sought a solution to help them achieve their challenging growth ambitions. Lack of functionality, the costs required to upgrade their current software and a keen enthusiasm to improve the efficiency of their processes meant that a new ERP supplier was required.
E-Max Systems were appointed to provide a solution. Our functionality rich yet cost-effective ERP software provided Impress with the means to:
Reduce processing times without additional resource
Improve stock control and work allocation
Increase output to new markets, including aerospace, medical and rail
and has provided a robust business wide operating system which has enabled Impress to increase production efficiency, expand from 1 to 5 companies and increase turnover to £7m in the last financial year.
