Encompix ETO ERP Drives Benefits at Big Sky Engineering
Cincinnati, OH -- (ReleaseWire) -- 07/18/2006 --Located in Verona, Wisconsin, just outside of Madison in south-central Wisconsin, Big Sky provides a full range of services from engineering related services to complete turnkey automated systems. With Blue Sky growing rapidly, it became clear that a combination of QuickBooks and spreadsheets could not keep pace nor provide the business with the control and information it needed.
Peter Dettmer, sales and technology manager, led the implementation team, and after three and a half months Blue Sky went live on Encompix, finally dropping all the old systems in January 2006.
According to Dettmer, Blue Sky is already seeing big benefits from using Encompix. "The biggest benefit we've seen so far is that information is now available to everyone in the organization. Due to the limitations of our previous systems, purchase order information was only available to one person. No one else knew whether or not a purchase order had been placed. Also, we now have true actual costs for our products, and this will help us improve the accuracy of our estimates in the future."
Big Sky Engineering was formed in 1997 with the goal of providing economical automation solutions to the ever-changing packaging industry.
