Business systems specialist, McGuffie Brunton believes that an increasing number of SME manufacturers are responding to market pressures by radically changing the way they operate their business. They are doing so with the help and support of the latest fully integrated and flexible ERP systems.

As sponsor of the Innovation category at the 2006 British Factory Awards (BFA), McGuffie Brunton was commenting on the announcement of the shortlist for the Award which promotes and reward manufacturing excellence.

Howard Joseph, Sales Director of McGuffie Brunton said: "As a sponsor of the Innovation Award, I would be surprised if more companies were not to enter this category for the 2007 Awards. ERP systems like, SYSPRO 6.0, have a high degree of flexibility, functionality and system integration that enable firms to not only control and manage their business, but to make dynamic changes that will further improve their factory operations and competitiveness."

As an example, McGuffie Brunton is helping military security specialist, Allen-Vanguard to restructure its manufacturing operations and to develop new products, while aerospace supplier, Neomet is installing SYSPRO from McGuffie Brunton to help and support the firm in adopting lean manufacturing techniques. Likewise, aerospace company, Thermal Engineering is seeking major supply chain benefits from its use of SYSPRO.

"Customers are getting bolder in their requirements; because they know that with systems such as SYSPRO they will be supported in implementing their strategies.  The latest ERP systems geared for SME's now put customers in a position whereby they really can make the type of changes to their business that they have been unable to do in the past because of software restrictions," commented Howard Joseph.

Last year, Prism Electronics, one of McGuffie Brunton's customers, scooped the BFA's Most Improved Factory Award for 2005.
