As well as all the standard functionality you’d expect to find in a first class ERP system, E-Max ERP contains many other manufacturing specific features that makes it the perfect software for manufacturers.
Why use E-Max for Manufacturing
E-Max ERP gives you full visibility of all jobs throughout the manufacturing process. As E-Max is an end to end system, it takes each job from initial enquiry through to final invoice. Every area of your company can see what materials are required and when they are required by. Materials are purchased in time to allow you to deliver on time but not so early that cashflow is tied up for long periods.
For companies trying to achieve or maintain ISO or other accreditations, E-Max’s software for manufacturers has built in processes for continuous improvement as well as a comprehensive quality system, giving your company the opportunity to enter new markets or meet new contractual agreements.
Get rid of multiple spreadsheets and put all your information in one place for better analysis. Use this improved knowledge to become more competitive and win more contracts, for example, by using historical data to see how low prices can be taken but still remain profitable.
