ERP System for Industrial Machinery Manufacturing


A U.S.-based industrial machinery manufacturer was looking for a fully integrated Engineer-to-order (ETO) enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution to replace an aging legacy system, including some in-house applications.

To find the right solution, the company turned to TEC for an extended software evaluation and selection project—building a custom requirement set that included components from ETO ERP, ERP for distribution, customer relationship management (CRM), computerized maintenance management system–enterprise asset management (CMMS-EAM), product lifecycle management (PLM), and project portfolio management (PPM) solutions.

Also, decision makers in health care and social work organizations are concerned about the security of the confidential information gathered about patients.
