"I would say that 123insight has easily paid for itself inside a year, but my gut feeling is maybe half of that... ...I reckon that we could grow by a third before we would need to take on another person in Operations or Admin because of how much we can process through 123insight."
CSI Electronic Manufacturing Services Ltd, based in Witham, Essex was founded in November 2009 and are a subcontract electronics manufacturer. With the Directors having used an Electronic Manufacturing Services ERP system in a previous company, they created a series of spreadsheets knowing that this would be a short term solution. Early in 2010 they started investigating replacement systems. Said Adrian Winch, MD; "Having had a bad experience with a previous system we were not going there again. We had previously spent over £16,000 a year on maintenance alone. We looked at five EMS MRP systems in total, one of which didn't even bother responding to several requests. 123insight was recommended to me by a friend who is the MD of a manufacturing company (Reverie) that is also using it. I was also aware of other EMS companies using 123insight."
