AEROSPACE SUPPLIER SELECTS VISUAL ERP TO IMPROVE DELIVERY AND QUALITY ASSURANCE AND EFFECTIVENESS
Soldream Inc. is a US based Connecticut market leading supplier of aerospace and defense component manufacturing including design, fabrication and machining of complex assemblies from wide variety of materials, such as high temperature alloys, steel alloys, stainless steels, titanium, aluminum and many others.
Soldream Inc. is anticipating a long period of year over year growth. The company evaluated its legacy ERP system and determined that their current system was missing several key features that were important to support Soldream’s planned growth and was also not as user friendly and easy to learn as newer generation ERP software. Soldream Inc. also had to comply with high quality demands in a near zero fault tolerant industry which made a compelling case for finding a system with strong QA abilities.
Soldream Inc. conducted a formal ERP Selection reviewing the following systems; Epicor, E2 and JobBOSS. During those comparative analysis sessions, it was pointed out that local companies of similar size were successfully using VISUAL coupled with the support of the Synergy Resources team which has years of hands-on manufacturing experience. Synergy’s team is also based in New England and headquartered in New York.
In addition, there are local VISUAL User Groups which hold quarterly meetings with similar A&D users to discuss current solutions and participate in future design and functionality recommendations. Special A&D tools to improve transferring of forecast data to and from A&D contractors made the solution an easy decision. Synergy’s SmartViews reporting tool promised to make data decisionable and accessible.
Soldream Inc. focused on capabilities to administer all of their quality, financial, purchasing, inventory and production planning requirements. Soldream Inc. was fortunate to have employees with previous experience with both VISUAL and Synergy Resources. Their input was positive and certainly was one of the factors that helped determine which ERP system to select. Several other employees had experience with other ERP systems and did not recommend using the software systems they used in the past.
Soldream Inc. believes that they will benefit from the implementation of VISUAL in many of the following ways:
- Improved on time support of customer’s demands
- All major functions utilizing one unifying system, one view of the truth
- Improved cost tracking, based upon facts
- Improved communication of demand across all functions and levels of management
Soldream Inc. will leverage VISUAL and its expertise of innovative engineering design, rigorous manufacturing techniques, and uncompromising quality for its custom designed precision A&D products. From concept to production, Soldream offers a dedicated team to optimize their customer’s A&D systems.
