Prodomax Assembly and Material Handling Selects Encompix ERP Software
Cincinnati, OH -- (ReleaseWire) -- 07/10/2006 --Located in Barrie, Ontario, Canada, Prodomax Automation, Inc., employs over 200 employees and operates from two state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities totaling 150,000 square feet.Prodomax provides automated manufacturing solutions for assembly, welding, machining, laser, and material handling applications. Providing more than just machines, Prodomax offers total project management, engineering, manufacturing, installation, equipment start-up, and continuous service for all manufacturing processes.
According to Bob Steppe, vice president of operations, Prodomax believes in supporting its customers by continually investing in new technologies and manufacturing capabilities aimed at reducing costs and ultimately improving each client’s automation system.
Striving to reduce delivery time and costs, Steppe recognized that Prodomax’s existing information systems were a limiting factor. “We suffer from the classic ‘islands of information’ problems such as duplicate data entry, errors, late and partial information,” he said. “We spend far too much time chasing and validating data instead of making decisions based on accurate information.”
To integrate all areas of the business, Prodomax recently purchased a 50-user Encompix ERP system to replace a series of software packages and homegrown systems.
Steppe explained the reasons why Prodomax selected Encompix: “The Encompix system seemed to be designed with us in mind. A perfect hand-in-glove fit to match our operations, such that we won’t have to change our business processes to use the software. Because it is so tailored to the way we do business, there aren’t a lot of the ‘bells and whistles’ that you find in some of the more generic ERP packages that ultimately just confuse the user. We want a system that is easy to use and meets our requirements, and that’s what Encompix offers.”
