"The fact that you could go from a part enquiry into a sales order into a works order or a purchase order just seamlessly
and all through one screen was such a joy... ...you couldn't employ someone for the money we spend on 123insight to do what it does."
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."
