Cloud-based Manufacturing Management Software launches at the Advanced Manufacturing Show, NEC Birmingham

The UK’s small- and mid-sized manufacturers are keen to embrace process management technology but are looking for low-cost implementation, quick availability, and a system that integrates with their existing financial software rather than replacing it.

This is the view of Roy Shooter, VP EMEA of Sales for KeyedIn™ Solutions, which is holding the UK launch of KeyedIn™ Manufacturing, its enterprise application developed specifically for the manufacturing sector, at Birmingham’s NEC on 4-6 June.

“We’ve looked closely at the needs of the UK manufacturing sector and the issues they’re facing,” says Roy Shooter. “The result is a 100 per cent Cloud-based, Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) product that provides on-demand visibility of all processes with a powerful estimating and quoting tool.”

KeyedIn Manufacturing is the latest addition to the KeyedIn portfolio of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and Project Management products that have taken the company from launch to more than 30,000 users in less than two years. KeyedIn Manufacturing was launched in the United States in February to a highly positive response. The UK version, which is fully localised into UK English, will have its first outing on 4 June with demos on stand AM11.

The SaaS offering has an easy-to-use interface, no on-premise installation and cost is per user, per month, making this the ideal solution for the smaller manufacturer. The application is designed to integrate seamlessly with existing financial programmes such as QuickBooks, removing the risk and hassle of financial software changes.

The ‘per user’ option enables businesses to make the most cost-effective use of the information, as opposed to having an expensive on-premise server installation. Roy Shooter believes that a typical user would have access to estimating, purchasing, inventory, production and warehouse, as well as benefiting from the raft of reportage available to the management team.
