“OptiProERP’s innovative cloud-based ERP for manufacturing will allow us to run our operation more effectively, assist with accommodating growth, operate more efficiently, and offer better service to our customers.”
Based in Grand Junction, Colorado, Western Filament braids, twists, coats, and dyes man-made fiber for the military, aerospace, automotive, electric motor, and fishing industries. They pride themselves in producing high-quality textile products that are used in the most demanding applications.
The company was using a legacy ERP system that utilizes “bolt-on” data sources. It couldn’t provide advanced scheduling, routing, cost centers, work centers, or work-in-process visibility.
Western Filament has grown and required more information and manufacturing functionality from its ERP system. Rex Nelson, President and CEO, liked that OptiProERP is embedded and fully integrated with SAP Business One. Read on to see the systems they reviewed before selecting OptiProERP, and how it’s helping them provide a greater customer experience.
“OptiProERP’s manufacturing platform appeared to be more suitable for our operation. Other ERPs appeared to be more applicable for distribution or assembly operations.”
Western Filament, deemed essential under the Defense Production Act during the COVID-19 pandemic, is reinvesting for the future. There is never a good time to install a new ERP system, but the entire management team agreed that they needed a more robust system to handle their unique business.
Western Filament reviewed Sage, JobBoss, and NetSuite before selecting OptiProERP with SAP Business One. They liked its fully integrated manufacturing and mobility functionality.
OptiProERP provides Western Filament with remote access, single system connectivity, time savings, better WIP visibility, more accurate capacity detail, and improved lead times for a better customer experience.
