Manufacturers and Made-to-Order job shops need to be more data-driven. Every department and process… receiving, purchasing, planning, production, quality, packaging, warehousing, distribution, finance and management… needs real-time, accurate data to make the best decisions.
ERP4ACTION is a modular enterprise resource planning (ERP) software application that is customizable and configurable. Manufacturers, machine shops and organizations leverage our ERP to better control all aspects of their business: from purchasing raw materials to bidding job costing to production scheduling to production runs to inventory management to final delivery.
Have a need that falls outside of our standard module suite?
We can develop custom solutions or integrate with your current software applications to create the best fit to your organization.
ERP4ACTION drives real-time efficiencies by centralizing and sharing critical data across all departments of an organization. It can even automate tasks and processes.
Is it easy for you to gather and analyze all critical data?
Do your teams have quick access to ALL critical data when they need it, wherever they are?
Do your departments automatically share access to critical data?
Are your software programs & applications communicating together?
“No” to any of the above questions signals that there are data-silos in your organization. Information is being managed across a variety of programs and platforms. This decreases efficiency and increases costs, work, time, frustration, errors, mistakes, etc.
ERP4ACTION gives you more control over your operations, production, quality and costs:
Simplify the steps and generation of documents like work orders, cost sheets, invoices, etc.
Manage raw materials and finished goods inventories in real-time.
Provide the location of each of the products on the shop floor or at a third-party location.
Determine precisely the manufacturing time for each project, product or operation
Automate tasks and information sharing for alerts, reporting, administration, etc.
… and much more.
ERP4ACTION allows build to stock (BTS), build to order (BTO), engineer to order (ETO), product distribution, etc. With an advanced scheduler that also manages all types of tools and molds, as well as a Just in Time (JIT) supply management system, operations can be much more precise with determining the delivery dates when taking orders!
Management of serial numbers, lot numbers and ‘mill’ tests are supported. Inventories are multi-warehouse and multi-category, allowing for controls of inventory movements. As well, the creation of manufacturing recipes is assisted by our raw materials and finished goods configurators.
ERP4ACTION directly interfaces with industry-popular accounting software programs. Streamlines data capture and recordkeeping. Prevents double entry of client files and invoices, supplier files and invoices. Transfers worked hours for payroll processing.
Functionalities vary depending on the accounting software.
ERP4ACTION provides direct integration capabilities with several CAD systems. Customized manufacturers can optimize the complete business operation, from design and engineering, through production to client delivery.
Functionalities vary depending on the CAD software.

DASHBOARD4ACTION is a dashboard creation and management tool that offers more control to end-users.
This module includes templates and packages for users to design, generate and share real-time intelligence dashboards.
Quickly gain more insight about metrics you manage:
OEE, OTD, performance, productivity, quality, rejects/scrap, inventory, stock outs, maintenance issues, safety, etc.
For even more customized dashboards,
DECIDE4ACTION offers additional support and services.
SHIPPING4ACTION helps you manage your shipping operations from the “end of line” production stages to the post-shipment operations. Its built-in tools allow you to decrease shipment preparation times, reduce manual record keeping, and ensure the production of proper shipping documentation.
SHIPPING4ACTION integrates with your Manufacturing Systems to provide planners the ability to allocate production inventory for shipment in real-time and automatically issue special shipping requirements. Customs Documentation and Customer Specific Paperwork are automatically generated to ensure no shipment leaves without the correct documentation.
SHIPPING4ACTION’s automated system organizes and alerts you to
In most operations, deciding what and how much product to produce is not as easy as it sounds. In many cases, a dedicated and highly trained planning department is required to make these complex decisions.
PLANNING4ACTION can help support this complex issue by separating out the complex planning process into smaller, easily consumable steps and displaying all of the relevant information required to make a decision.
PLANNING4ACTION can help you:
Create a planning workflow allowing smaller decisions to be taken by a lower level employee with subsequent supervisor approval
Analyze historical yields to determine how much product to start building
Determine a “real-time” completion date based on your shop-floor performance
Find potential alternative stock in your inventory to help fulfill an order
Ensure production/work orders are necessary and approved to prevent excessive stock buildup
