On September 1, 2006, Progressive Systems went live with Encompix software at its Brea, Kentucky facility. “The reason we purchased Encompix was to reduce our costs and time-to-market,” said Chris Gullo, vice president, engineering and production. “With an integrated system, the flow of data between departments will be greatly improved. For example, purchasing will be able to turn engineering requirements into RFQs and purchase orders very easily. This will create more competitive situations between our suppliers, and that should reduce our costs. We will be able to do a better job of analyzing project costs, identifying problem areas, and overall improve our internal processes.”
