EFACS improves connectivity for Stainless Steel Fasteners

Posted on 7 Sep 2009 by The Manufacturer

Exel Computer Systems, the leading UK based author and developer of the innovative EFACS ERP system, announced that Stainless Steel Fasteners (SSF) is enjoying a growing range of benefits since its successful EFACS implementation.

Increased visibility, connectivity, and control are amongst the earliest benefits for the £9m turnover, global market leader in special fastener manufacturing. The company’s previous combination of disparate accounting, Customer Relationship Management (CRM) systems, and a range of specialist spreadsheets did not provide the visibility, control,and flexibility the company needed, with SSF deciding to invest in EFACS – already successfully being used elsewhere in the group.

Matthew Tongue, resource manager, SSF, said: From the outset we found all the material control data to be totally accurate and providing the variable route flexibility we needed in order to deliver the quality and flexibility required by our customers.”

Looking to the future, Tongue sees further benefits to be had from a deeper use of EFACS’ existing functionality, especially in the area of CRM. Machine timings and routings may well be added into wider MRP/ ERP considerations, in addition to further streamlining of Export documentation, where EFACS E/8 has already saved one week per month.
