Northamptonshire-based precision engineering sub-contractor G23 Engineering has declared the PSL Datatrack production control system one of the main drivers for its growth.

The investment in the system was prompted by the company's need to implement production control, said company directors, brothers Adam and Dan Green.

Adam Green said: “We knew simply recording and storing customer and production information on the company iPad would not be sufficient. We were already missing some jobs or sometimes not invoicing correctly. So, bearing in mind all the likely combinations of orders for different components, quantities and materials that an increased customer base was likely to bring, things had to change.”

G23 Engineering now uses the PSL Datatrack system to run the entire business, which it says has enabled it to recall full documentation of every job for every customer instantly and ensure complete manufacturing traceability, as well as helping it achieve ISO 9001 accreditation.

“Anything the inspector asked for, we could access immediately through PSL Datatrack,” said Adam Green. “We can call up historic information quickly and quote accurately with consideration for variable stock holding, materials and manufacturing quantities in full knowledge that the quotations will be accurate and not over or under priced.”

Having already invested in a variety of PSL Datatrack modules from quotations to invoicing with sales and purchase order processing, component and materials stocks together with gauge calibration, the company said it can look to the future in the knowledge that the PSL Datatrack investment can be extended when needed and with minimum fuss.
