We’re delighted to welcome Lancashire, UK-based Denatec Applied Engineering Systems to Flowlens.
Technical Director, Nathan Peel describes how Flowlens met Denatec’s needs for all in one customer, manufacturing and engineering service management tools.
“Having always been in manufacturing, I have seen many different systems & methods employed for managing MRP requirements; I have seen the money that can be wasted when the wrong system is implemented, and how slow the process can be when working with spreadsheets. We needed a system that primarily managed all our MRP requirements but also handled the CRM side of the business and Flowlens does this impeccably.
We carried out an in-depth comparison of 5 similarly priced systems, running a sample job through each, and it didn’t take long to realise that Flowlens was the right system for us. The system is so easy to navigate and simple to use; the data presented is relevant & precise and the work flow is faultless. What impressed us equally was how the system managed ‘Service’ provision as effectively as it does manufacturing; this is extremely important for us as Service provision represents around 50% of our business.
The support that was given to us during the trial period was unbelievable and went a long way towards helping us make our final choice – having already had some experience implementing ERP/MRP systems in other organisations, I can say that Flowlens has been the easiest to date to implement and the customer service, the best.”
Rich Dale, CEO commented, “we are delighted to welcome Denatec to Flowlens. Having identified the engineer to order business process and quality requirements to be supported, Nathan went through a detailed selection process to review systems. We’ve kicked off the implementation process with our team, helping Denatec get started quickly and see benefits upfront.”
