"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."
Evridge Group Ltd, based in Dartford, Kent provide NATO approved subcontract manufacturing services to various industries including aerospace, marine, defence and nuclear. Managing Director Glen Molineux had previous experience of 123insight after it replaced a failed system implementation at a previous company. "Production was handled using a Lotus database, but this did not link to sales so we evaluated MRP systems. We had actually looked at 123insight back in 2000 but selected a different system later in 2005. £22,000 was spent up front, plus training costs and around 20-25% annual maintenance fee. As soon as we started the training everything that we tried to do required a different module. We didn't manage to get that system live and had to write off those costs along with the man-hours spent trying to implement it."
