Maximus’ rapid growth resulted in the existing array of software, spreadsheets and manual processes being unfit for purpose. This meant that Maximus had no real-time, accurate stock information making reporting and analysis difficult and time consuming.
Previously when a sale was made, the parts were marked on a job card manually. Not only was this time-consuming but there was no way to allocate stock, making accurate stock control impossible.
Flowlens worked closely with the Maximus team to map the end-to-end process from Purchase Orders to Goods Received to ensure a joined-up workflow. Our Purchase Order Processing features linked parts, suppliers and costs meaning that Purchasing have enough lead time to get the best price. Dashboard report- ing allows each function to easily access relevant, real-time information that helps managers make better informed busi- ness decisions.
The Operations team is enjoying significant time-savings with the removal of miniMRP, spreadsheets and manual processes that have been replaced by a unified flow of information. Flowlens Projects and Jobs cards enable accurate kitting and planning of materials. Flowlens Purchasing Stock Management tools streamline day to day activity, and give real-time visibility of Orders Due, Stock Levels and Spar Parts demand.
