Powder coating specialist Thermaset Limited has completed the overhauling of its business infrastructure with the installation of an integrated computer system linking all departments for enhanced efficiency and communication.
The new upgraded technology is the first stage in a major capital investment planned by the company to include the redevelopment of its research and development facilities to accommodate a training school and showroom facility. The system went live in March this year.
WinMan Advanced ERP Systems, based at Fort Dunlop in Birmingham, installed the computer system which utilises their own ‘off-the-shelf’ Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software designed to meet the needs of the manufacturing and distribution sectors. WinMan’s integrated warehouse management system enables complete visibility and management of inventory.
Thermaset Project Manager Claire Jennens commented: “The system is ‘future-proof’ for many years ahead and will further enhance the customer experience that we are able to offer.
“The system provides us with a complete ‘end-to-end’ process and the ability to expand it as the company grows. The cost saving and efficiency benefits that are already accruing from this system are significant.”
Graeme Brummitt, Director at WinMan, believes that the intuitive nature of WinMan coupled with its inherent flexibility makes it an ideal solution for growing companies like Thermaset.
He comments: “WinMan ERP is designed to support manufacturers and distributors in optimising business processes.”
Claire commented: “Implementation of the system began in September 2015 and was completed on time at the beginning of March this year. Staff received ‘in-house training from the Thermaset project team over a four week period and quickly got to grips with the new system and the feedback from them is excellent.
