Manufacturer of Electromechanical Switches Uses Made2Manage ERP Software to More Effectively Manage Business

Consona Corporation (Consona), a worldwide leader in providing customer relationship management (CRM) and enterprise resource planning (ERP) software and services for companies of all sizes, today announced at its Consona Connect 2012 user conference that Dow-Key Microwave Corporation (Dow-Key Microwave), the world’s largest manufacturer of electromechanical switches for radio frequency and microwave applications, is a 2012 Summit Award winner for its use of Consona’s Made2Manage ERP software.

Dow-Key Microwave was selected due to its ability to more effectively use the Made2Manage ERP solution to achieve desired results, such as:

  •     Improved control and quality throughout the company, saving approximately 50 hours per month in labor
  •     More efficient and error-free labor collection system, saving Dow-Key Microwave 160 hours per month
  •     Use of the Made2Manage Shop Floor Manager solution to contribute to corporate "green" goals by eliminating excess paperwork
  •     Improved quality leading to zero violations in most recent audit

Dow-Key has realized these improvements in large part due to the expanded use of the Made2Manage ERP solution. “We have control all the way from top to bottom,” said Bill Frederick, Director of Information Technologies, Dow-Key. “It’s amazing to look at all the functionality and corresponding benefits in the Made2Manage ERP system that we simply didn’t use before.”

“We’re thrilled to honor Dow-Key with a Summit Award at Consona Connect 2012,” said Jeff Tognoni, CEO, Consona. “The company's evaluation and subsequent expanded use of the Made2Manage ERP solution is a great example of how a company can use our software to continually improve and enhance its business processes.”
