Exel Computer Systems, the UK based author and developer of the EFACS ERP system, has announced that Cubewano, designer and manufacturer of high power to weight ratio internal combustion engines, has selected EFACS E/8 to manage its manufacturing process and support the company's growth.
Located in Sutton Coldfield, Birmingham, UK, the heart of British Engineering and a hub of innovation, Cubewano's range of 'made to measure' Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) engines are pushing the barriers of the conventional notion of size and power. The company is relentlessly extending the boundaries of technology to consistently improve products year on year technological work is moving at a rapid pace and constant innovation is high on the agenda.
Because of this, Cubewano reached a point where it was felt that its current ERP systems could hold the company back from future growth. The decision to invest in EFACS E/8 was an obvious one as the General Manager of Cubewano explains.
"We selected EFACS as we were aware of its excellent track record within manufacturing and our market sector in particular. Several of our key suppliers and customers already used EFACS and as such we knew it could supply the levels of traceability / usability and integration we require."
EFACS E/8 will allow Cubewano to effectively manage all of its business processes and data in real-time, which includes fully integrated stock control. Prior to implementing EFACS E/8 Cubewano ran Microsoft Navision, which lacked control and traceability, an essential requirement in order to meet the demands of military requirements and specification. For a system to fulfil its requirements for the long term, it was essential that it was capable of taking Cubewano's products all the way through design, production and after sales service. EFACS E/8 proved more than capable of fulfilling this requirement and will allow Cubewano to meet the predicted growth demands for its air, land and sea vehicles.
Cubewano's General Manager again, "EFACS will enable the company to grow and diversify without having to keep revisiting its core ERP system. It has coped with everything we have thrown at it so far and still has huge scope for future expansion. It has become a key enabler in the company's continued success."
