SYSPRO Selected to Facilitate Growth, Manage Manufacturing, Control Inventories, Provide Traceability at Freedom Smokeless
SYSPRO, a developer of best-of-breed, award-winning enterprise resource planning (ERP) software for on-premise and cloud-based utilization, announced today that Freedom Smokeless, a manufacturer of e-cigarettes, has selected SYSPRO ERP software to facilitate growth. According to Robert Munck, CFO of the San Clemente, Calif.-based company, SYSPRO ERP will be cloud implemented in the company’s new factory where the software will manage manufacturing and facilitate bar code scanning, inventory controls and product traceability.
“Our company is rapidly growing, and we will be manufacturing in our new facility by the end of summer,” said Munck, noting, “Quickbooks, our current software, just can’t handle the manufacturing/inventory side of the business, and we are looking to SYSPRO to provide in-depth operational data, including that integrated from barcoding and lot/serial traceability. We need to track product through the system, from receiving to shipments, and control inventories, so we know when to order raw materials without having to schedule using an excel file.”
Munck adds, “We are also looking to SYSPRO ERP to assist the planning side of the business and give us visibility into available stock and what we need to make so we can lean operations and boost customer service. In addition, the SYSPRO dashboards will give our executive team the ability to concentrate on their particular disciplines as well as insight into how the company is doing at any point in time.”
Addressing the availability of SYSPRO ERP via the cloud, Munck observes, “We thought the cloud was a great solution for where we are with our business model. We can eliminate IT assistance and hardware costs, and we have the ability to go on-site when and if we want to go that route in the future. We will always be on the latest version of SYSPRO without a lot of downtime.”
