With SAP Business One as our core foundational system, we are now positioned to drive further operational efficiencies via tighter integration between our business units and our internal manufacturing execution system (MES).

Vision33 (http://www.vision33.com), a leading SAP gold channel partner, today announced that Advanced Assembly (http://www.aa-pcbassembly.com) has chosen Vision33 as the implementation partner for its enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution. The solution includes the SAP Business One® application, implementation and training services, and Vision33’s renowned TOTAL Care support program.

Named one of the fastest-growing private companies in the U.S. by Inc. Magazine in 2013, Advanced Assembly attributes its impressive growth to its dedicated focus on improving the assembly process for customers of low to mid-volume printed circuit boards (PCBs). Advanced Assembly provides design engineers with quick-turn, high-quality PCB assembly by combining the latest technologies with personalized service.

“Advanced Assembly’s success and forecasted continued growth require us to constantly evaluate existing processes and systems in order to improve scalability and meet increasing demand while still maintaining the high-quality standards our customers have come to expect,” said Kevin Ryan, president of Advanced Assembly. “With our investment in SAP Business One, we are looking forward to increasing productivity, improving operational efficiency, and delivering an even higher level of service, all of which are critical to fostering strong customer relationships and mutual trust.”

In just 10 years, Advanced Assembly has become a leading PCB assembly manufacturer by making it easier for engineers to outsource their PCB assemblies, and thus focus on other aspects of design. By implementing SAP Business One, Advanced Assembly will be able to create quicker turnaround times and offer an even more efficient assembly process. This will in turn help engineers shorten their product development cycles and bring their innovative products to market faster.

“At Advanced Assembly, we utilize sophisticated and propriety technologies that help engineers get their prototype PCB projects assembled quickly, typically in one to five days,” said Jason Gibb, IT director, Advanced Assembly. “With SAP Business One as our core foundational system, we are now positioned to drive further operational efficiencies via tighter integration between our business units and our internal manufacturing execution system (MES).”

Scott McMahon, Vision33 general manager, Northwest Region, added “We believe SAP Business One is the perfect fit for Advanced Assembly. They had not only outgrown the capabilities of their small-business accounting package, but also needed a strong, reliable system that could accommodate their advanced processes. SAP Business One allows them to do just that. Now, they can continue this fast-paced growth and provide an even higher level of service to their customers.”

Advanced Assembly recognized that selecting SAP Business One was only half the equation. It also needed a local partner that understood its business needs and growth objectives. “Vision33 was the right partner for Advanced Assembly,” added Gibbs. “Vision33 implementation consultants possess a very high level of understanding of accounting systems and manufacturing. They’re more than software implementers; they’re actual business process consultants.”
