An ERP to reinforce your projects
The success of a complex project will always depend on the competence of those involved. However, the pressure of the current marketplace in terms of margins, due dates, and penalties for lateness require, on top of experience, the use of proactive tools that help you to manage unknown factors, anticipate problems, and reduce administrative and production costs. With more than 30 years of experience in industrial project management, SolvAxis has developed ProConcept ERP Project-Based Manufacturing to meet the unqiue requirements of Swiss SMBs building equipment, prototypes, 0 series, machine-tools or metallic structures, as well as those managing construction sites, including road, nuclear, mechanical, and spatial.
ProConcept ERP Project-Based Manufacturing delivers a broad range of functionality, including turnover progress figures, scalable BOMs, billing due lists, retroactive or real-time financial tracking, situation n/n-1, Gantt project management, margin calculations, and hedging.
Project-based ERP fully integrated in the ERP is the concept developed by SolvAxis. The project manager has access, from their project cockpit, to all the information relating to their project, regardless of whether it relates procurements, manufacturing, stocks, cash-flow, budgets, cost price, after-sales service missions, costs analyses, or the margin.
Control all the possible scenarios
The extended features let you control all the possible scenarios, for example:
- Do you sub-contract or manufacture, or both?
- Are your orders for stock or project-based?
- Do you work to order or with project forecasts?
- Do you manufacture some of your products in series?
Controlling risk and profitability
Each project is unique and requires its own approach, where profitability and customer satisfaction must be reconciled. The path may be difficult and paved with risks and slippage, in terms of cost and time estimation, estimation of the final cost price, cash-flow management, procurement management, etc.
The Project-based ERP by SolvAxis successfully rises up to this challenge by providing you with all the tools, KPIs, alerts, etc. to comfortably and efficiently accomplish your tasks, without ever losing control over your project, irrespective of its complexity.
Planning and due dates
There's no sense in hurrying, the answer is to start on time. We applied this adage to Project-based ERP and came up with a very sophisticated, bi-directional interface with MS Project management standard.
The calculation of completion due date when drawing up an estimate or anticipating missing items in the project always requires a perfect control over the loads and capacities of the company's resources, but with consolidation levels and different horizons.
