Perfect for companies working in precision engineering, machining, turning, milling and fabrications, the system streamlines job processing from quotation to invoice to make it easy for you to minimise waste, reduce inefficiencies and improve productivity, while complying with ISO, AS, and IATF regulations.

Leaner processes from quotation to invoice

Manage production through 6 key modules, to make manufacturing operations leaner and improve your factory’s fitness!

Prepare accurate and professional quotes to meet the needs of both you and your customers. Quotes can cover single or multiple items, multiple quantities of the same item, or assemblies, in any combination

Create a Works Order directly from a Quote, template or previous order. Use this information to qualify the build, material, parts, subcon and tooling requirements. Produce comprehensive shopfloor documentation including job cards (travellers) with digital pictures.

Generate an RFQ for suppliers in order to produce Purchase Orders from Quotes or Works Orders. Purchase Orders are used to order parts/materials/sub-contract/tooling for both works orders and stock

Log Goods-in and monitor stock levels for raw materials and consumables. Keep detailed information of materials used, costs, specifications, locations and quantities to easily track your stock levels and flag any discrepancies quickly.

Easily create delivery notes for single or multiple items, and automatically produce certificates of conformity, showing the ‘build’ of items, down to the material, parts, subcontract and tooling that were used.

Build invoices from approved works order batches. Invoices can contain single and multiple items from Works Order delivery batches, ad-hoc items, delivery charges using their own VAT rates, analysis codes and be multi-currency


Supporting manufacturing across the UK
