Investment by Prism Electronics, an electronics-based contract manufacturing firm, in a fully integrated SYSPRO ERP solution has contributed to them being presented with the prestigious UK Best Factory Award for Most Improved Plant in a ceremony in London last week.

Cambridgeshire-based Prism began installation of an 18-user company-wide SYSPRO manufacturing, financial and distribution system last January, with the system "going live" just 4 months later on 1 May. Their aim was to further improve the businesses rapidly expanding design-to-manufacture facilities that are increasingly used by companies seeking to bring smaller volume, specialist products to the marketplace.

In particular, the core SYSPRO manufacturing and distribution modules are helping the company to respond faster to customer requests by streamlining internal procedures and processes, and improving integration between functions. Prism is planning to introduce further improvements during phase 2 of their implementation programme, to bring control of engineering changes within the SYSPRO system.

The introduction of SYSPRO by McGuffie Brunton, along with investments by Prism in staff training and specialist manufacturing equipment, has helped the company to win the Award in an evaluation, which is run by the Cranfield University School of Management. This award was previously won in 2004 by Siemens Automation and Drives.

David Aspinall, Managing Director of Prism Electronics, said of the achievement: "Reaching the shortlist in such a prestigious national award was great. Winning the Award is a tremendous achievement and has fully endorsed our efforts to continuously drive forward to improve the company for the benefit of our customers."

He added: "Confidence in your source of supply and support is important among any key suppliers, but when you put your trust in an ERP system, it is particularly vital. You have to be very comfortable that you are dealing with a company who understands what you are trying to achieve, who will help you achieve it, and who will help you by getting 'stuck in' if there are any difficulties. On all of those accounts, we felt that we would be able to enjoy a good supporting relationship with McGuffie Brunton."
