Life with ERP is A-OK

PlastiCert is a service manufacturer tasked with big responsibilities. As a service provider, we act as an extension of your, our customers’, production floors. Unlike a supply chain OEM where you have specified a supplier’s part or assembly into your product, you come to us and ask us to make your custom designed part(s) for you.

As such, making a myriad of different parts for multiple OEM customers is quite a challenge. Everything we make is of their design and made to their unique requirements. That means a great deal of flexibility, ability to react and respond as well as providing revision control and traceability capability when it is required.

Over 15 years ago PlastiCert recognized that such a demand on manufacturing systems and the subsequent dovetailing with Finance, Purchasing, Quality and Sales required a plan. An ERP system was chosen and implemented. Since then PlastiCert has consistently done more with less. Our ERP software provides seamless integration of planning, materials management and procurement, manufacturing, financial, and business intelligence processes.

With customers in aerospace and medical, product configuration and lot/serial number traceability are huge. Add to those features the ability to “what if” future demand showing what is available to promise and capable to promise lets us convey future scenarios when asked.

Ease of use was a major factor, and we use the software in its “out of the box” state with no customization, meaning a lower cost of ownership.

PlastiCert is up for your product configuration and variation scenarios. Come find out why we are confident is saying we are molding your future, every day.
