Cincinnati, Ohio (PRWEB) May 30, 2011
Solarsoft Business Systems, a leading provider of enterprise software and IT services to manufacturers worldwide, announced today that Pyramid Plastics has chosen to enhance the visibility of their production scheduling and quality control with the addition of both Solarsoft’s mVP enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution and Mattec manufacturing execution system (MES).
Based in Rockford, IL, the thermoplastic injection molder specializes in engineering grade materials, clear resins, and insert molding for the automotive, hardware and consumer products markets.
“Our current business system doesn’t quite fit today’s molding industry and is expensive to maintain,” says Kelly Schwenk, General Manager at Pyramid Plastics. “Production scheduling is time consuming because we have to pull data out of the existing system and manually re-key the data into spreadsheets. We wanted full visibility to see what’s running on the shop floor and how the jobs are progressing. We also wanted a better way to handle UPC codes. Solarsoft solves these issues for us.”
Pyramid Plastic joins many other companies that leverage Solarsoft’s mVP ERP solution and Mattec real-time manufacturing execution and production monitoring system.
“The real-time production monitoring that Mattec provides is a huge asset,” says Schwenk. “The integration of mVP and Mattec will help us further streamline our quality processes. We will no longer need to conduct quality checks by measuring variable data in the quality lab. We can grab the quality data right from the press.”
