Hear what one of our customers has to say about it:

“From the very beginning, starting with the concise operation review to the implementation of SmartViews, the process has run ahead of schedule and has been based off the premise that our systems are established with our business in mind, not the other way around.  That was important to us.  This helped to keep my staff engaged and was also a major factor in the success of these changes.   I will say having an integrated software suite is something we didn’t have prior to SmartViews and that was a great deal of our challenge.  It is funny because we just received our permanent license codes for SmartViews yesterday so our seats were inactive this morning.  I overheard my Scheduler saying to my IT Coordinator, “Wow I didn’t realize how much I do in SmartViews until I could not get into it this morning”.”  – Jaimie Bezanson, Tru Form Precision Manufacturing

S.I. Howard Glass Company Holds First VISUAL ERP Seminar, Showcasing Achievements

S.I. Howard Glass Company News: S.I. Howard Glass Company holds first VISUAL ERP Seminar, Showcasing Achievements.

http://www.howardglass.com/index.html

Worcester, MA — On September 29th 2015 the S.I. Howard Glass Company held its first VISUAL ERP Tour and Seminar, entitled “Showcasing Achievements”,  Leveraging the VISUAL ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) software, and Synergy Resources expertise.

hi2Elizabeth Keefe, Director of Operations for S.I. Howard Glass Company led the seminar discussion and tour of the Glass Company shop floor as she demonstrated the results of the VISUAL ERP software tools coupled with Synergy Resources business consulting efforts.

Synergy Resources, (a professional business improvement services firm) has helped Howard Glass with employee procedures and training on the world class VISUAL ERP software.

Howard Glass demonstrated the uses, benefits, and successful results during the last 3 years of operations. Attended by 11 people from 7 companies from a wide variety of industries, the seminar presented an educational and enlightening approach toward streamlining business processes with the capabilities of the VISUAL ERP software tools, strategic best process consulting and hard work.

“Streamlining means updating and getting the latest tools and technology to meet our company needs, to revise and improve the basic operations and every employee’s responsibilities of the company. This allowed us to grow without increasing the amount of support staff,” said Elizabeth Keefe. “Holding our costs allows us to be more competitive and win in the marketplace.”

hi1Elizabeth stated that Howard Glass has a very complex business, involved with many industries; Aerospace to Electronics, Biomedical to Electro-Optics industries. The VISUAL ERP system is “flexible off-the-shelf so it allows us to run our business in multiple ways to handle the work more efficiently for each industries unique requirements.” Howard Glass is an ISO: 9001:2008 certified and registered firm, with a proven track record of performance excellence.

Elizabeth Keefe added that Howard Glass’s specific needs for the VISUAL ERP system were to manage and improve the operational business needs of the company by utilizing VISUAL for quoting, material, scheduling, financials, quality, and managing its customers’ ever changing forecasts.

“It’s a truly integrated system from the sales quote to production and quality performance results. We’ve been aligning our processes and tools so that everyone is integrated and using the same system at the same time, allowing for more efficient, consistent productivity and results,” said Elizabeth Keefe,  “The data once entered during the sales process, can be leveraged throughout the operations, with no re-typing of any data.”

hi3Attendees took advantage of the event, asking Elizabeth to recall the operations before the VISUAL implementation compared to today, while also asking a wide array of process questions.

Over the few years since VISUAL was implemented, Howard Glass has steadily increased output, with virtually no added administration costs, remaining fiercely competitive, in a very competitive marketplace.
