Caliach Vision ERP - Case Studies
I perform the updates myself and can choose the automatic updates option from within the system. You don't need a technician to support Caliach Vision.
Managing Director, Chalwyn Ltd.
In terms of value for money, Caliach Vision ERP has to be the best system on the market.
Finance Director, Brandenburg (UK) Ltd.
Put simply, we could not have run the business as it is now without the software.
Matt Herbert, Managing Director
Broadwater Mouldings Ltd
Broadwater Mouldings Ltd offers engineering solutions in the manufacture of GRP mouldings and assemblies, supported by a 15 user Caliach Vision system including financials and manufacturing planning.
Caliach Vision has proven to be reliable and scalable – we have developed and integrated both what we do and how we do it with the system over the past eight years.
In 2012 the Ledges licence option was introduced, and business accounting transferred from head office to the main factory, integrated with the manufacturing data.
Credit control has improved, cash flow is now well managed and proper management of supplier payments has allowed us to agree improved terms with several key suppliers.
Performance measurement is crucial to the business, and considerable effort has gone into developing Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) over the last three years, with data derived from the system. Version 4 of Caliach Vision introduces new data collection and visual display tools to help automate and integrate this process.
I am keen to roll out V4 so that that we can automate more of the KPIs. I also want to leverage that functionality to achieve increased discipline around inventory and work order processing.
We have looked at other ERP offerings over the years, but found none that can better Caliach [Vision] overall at a similar cost.
Brandenburg (UK) Ltd uses the entire suite of Vision applications to manage its business manufacturing insect light traps, which it sells worldwide.
Vision was very easy to install. We don’t have a dedicated IT specialist and we find Vision easy to maintain.
Says Steve Underwood, Finance Director, who describes himself as a computer literate accountant.
Support from Caliach is very, very good and the facility to download updates from the Internet works well. We’re very pleased with it.
Vision users are spread throughout the company – in the press shop, in production planning and accounts. Some of the biggest benefits Brandenburg singles out are the ability to view multiple windows and the enhanced handling of ledgers.
Bigger systems can’t do half of what Caliach Vision does,” says Underwood. “In terms of value for money, Caliach Vision has to be the best system on the market.
Chalwyn Ltd manufactures and supplies a range of products providing protection for diesel engines. As an Apple Macintosh user, Chalwyn selected Caliach Vision because of its compatibility with major operating systems, including Windows, Apple and Linux.
Caliach have developed Vision from a manufacturing and engineering background and addressed all the quality and stock issues
says Fred Page-Roberts, Managing Director.
Caliach Vision is superb for managing stock control – you can batch parts and track them when you sell them. It’s foolproof and feels really secure.
Page-Roberts is particularly impressed with the ‘phantom parts’ feature, which enables existing parts to be bundled together for special deals. The phantom is shown as one line, but takes out of stock all the various parts that comprise the bundle.
We can sell a pressure test plug and Caliach Vision will allocate all the parts automatically, notify any shortages and produce a picking list for the works. The phantom parts feature saves having to build lots of different products which get put into stock waiting to be sold.
In one product group alone, this has helped reduced stock levels from £50,000 to £32,000. Because Caliach Vision is integrated it gives you the benefit of being able to analyse stock and sales, enabling us to make better decisions about re-ordering – that’s where we are really pleased with it.
Page-Roberts singles out the capability to produce marketing mailshots, which can be customised with the company typeface and are automatically recorded in the customer details of every recipient – simplifying the tracking of marketing activity. All reports can also be customised, enabling users to produce the information they require in the format they prefer.
But with such a comprehensive system, doesn’t it need a lot of support?
There’s nothing really to support,” says Page-Roberts. “I perform the updates myself and can choose the automatic updates option from within the system. You don’t need a technician to support Caliach Vision.
