As agricultural machinery manufacturers focusing on seed drills, Dale Drills, have outgrown their existing systems and selected Flowdens to provide essential software systems.
James Dale from Dale Drills said “Having spent some time looking at various MRP and CRM systems available for smaller manufacturers, we decided to go with Flowlens as it is a very intuitive system, and does everything we wanted in one package.”
Dale Drills wanted a system that would put an end to repeating work, like copying data between spreadsheets, emails and systems. They also needed MRP software with bill of materials management that would help ensure that the right parts were ordered or fabricated at the right time to meet customer needs.
The business saw this growth was being limited, with lots of information kept in key people’s heads. A manufacturing CRM and MRP software system that could capture important product, customer and supplier information, whilst standardising internally processes, would reduce risks and errors.
In the longer term, the business can see that standardised systems and processes will make it easier to train new employees, and track stock and job costing.
James continued: “Having only been using Flowlens for a few months we can already see the efficiency that it brings. Importing all our parts and data was easy, as we just copied and pasted this information into the templates provided. The implementation and training was seamless and so far we are very happy.”
Paddy Hearty, Head of Sales at Flowlens said ‘We are delighted to welcome Dale Drills to Flowlens, joining a growing number of farm machinery manufacturing companies who use Flowlens to streamline and grow their businesses.”
