Trifibre is a busy manufacturing plant producing large volumes of differing and bespoke products.
When sourcing a production management system to assist with the running of the shop floor there were several concerns raised about the products on the market and their overall suitability for the business. In addition, the number of licences required across both the shop floor and office made the cost of implementation prohibitive.
As the directors could not find a suitable solution in a system matching all the requirements of the business Xapsys developed a bespoke module Production Management module to provide a solution. This provides a complete overview of stock and production with multi users that in turn feeds into the Dashboard Module that presents and manages sales and accounts data in conjunction with production and shipping.
Working with the Jamie the Shop Floor Manager the Production Management Module was designed to negate the need for paper job cards and clocking systems and monitor work progress.
As a result, Xapsys has now made the shop floor completely visible at all times and allows the Jamie the option to see all areas effecting production from stock of materials through to scheduled works and shipping.
The implementation has made significant improvements to the manufacturing process, Jamie expressly highlighted the ability to see work flow and ensure on time or advanced delivery and to communicate better with clients.
In addition one of the Trifibre Directors has made a lifestyle choice to move with his family to Portugal. The use of the Dashboard gives him visibility off the business in real time and has allowed him to make the move without feeling a lack of control.
