Work with manufacturing software specialists

We have been working with manufacturing businesses for more than two decades, providing advice, helping with existing systems and creating tailored software systems. The sectors we’ve worked in include everything from precision engineering to food processing.

Our systems assist our clients with the full range of business activities – from project management to quality control and accounts. They help manage the movements and costings of materials, subcontractors and haulage, optimise production scheduling, and provide detailed costing systems that support full materials, labour and machining cost analysis from component level.

Our approach is key to the success of our systems: we work with you as partners, and spend time understanding in depth your manufacturing processes and where you need software to support and streamline those processes. What sets us apart is our belief that we should start by understanding your needs, and build a solution from there.

How we can help you

While we can build any software system you need, we work with manufacturing businesses in four main ways.

How we work with you


We start by digging deep into how your business works, your aspirations, and what you want to achieve. This thorough understanding is a critical first step – the secret to transforming your business.


We gain a detailed understanding of the business processes that the software needs to support, and look for ways to streamline and improve them. Only once we understand these do we go on to design your new system.


Our UK-based software developers build your system, testing it carefully to ensure it meets your business needs – while keeping ease of use uppermost in mind. We often create and launch one module at a time, so you see results as soon as possible.


We install the new system and ensure implementation goes as smoothly as possible. This process is handled with great care to minimise disruption.
