A growing engineering and fabrication specialist is saving, on average, £200,000 a year after investing in a fully integrated SYSPRO Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution from K3 Syspro.

MetalTech, which offers a range of sub-contract services including turning, milling, grinding, fabricating, welding, painting, assembly and testing, has recorded the impressive saving after slashing the time it saves on administrative duties by up to 40%.

The company has been using SYSPRO for six years and reported consecutive savings in both cost and time since it replaced a manual reporting system. By using spreadsheets to calculate and measure financial performance, productivity, sales accuracy and other data, the company struggled to generate accurate Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), which held the company back when it came to streamlining critical business processes.

“With SYSPRO, we have been able to produce reports that have been invaluable in measuring our financial performance, job performance, quote accuracy, market performance and sales activity. This is saving us up to 40% of our time and has enabled us to make a cost saving of around £200,000 year-on- year.”

Bendalls are a 'make to order' business that were looking to improve their current choice of "business system" as it was failing to meet expectations. A move to SYSPRO proved the right one, with sales, engineering, purchasing and accounts each having access to a single data set.
