    Wisconsin's Oberlin Filters Chooses Encompix ERP 15.05.07
    /24-7PressRelease/ - December 08, 2006 - Encompix ( a business unit of Made2Manage Systems, has filled the manufacturing software requirements of engineer-to-order companies since 1992. The company name reflects a commitment to developing business application solutions that encompass the complex areas of project-based and job-based manufacturing. Encompix provides ETO manufacturers with a competitive advantage by improving bottom line results.
    With more than 2,150 customers worldwide, Made2Manage Systems Inc. has a 20-year track record of delivering enterprise resource planning software and a broad range of services that meet the unique market specifications of more than 30 manufacturing sectors, including industrial and commercial machinery, fabricated metals, rubber and plastics, electronics, analytical and measuring equipment, furniture and fixtures, durable goods, and metals, wire and cable. Made2Manage Systems' sustained leadership position in the ERP marketplace is built on a commitment to fostering productive, long-lasting customer relationships, developing a quality product line based on unique industry specifications, and providing excellence in customer support and professional services.
    Headquartered in Waukesha, Wis., Oberlin Filters builds pressure filtration systems, specializing in solid/liquid separation for the chemical, wastewater treatment, machine tool, and automotive industries. Oberlin has been a pioneer in pressure filtration technology for more than 40 years.
    As a growing company, Oberlin was looking to expand its business, and the shortcomings of its old business system had become a limiting factor. "We are an engineering-intensive business," said Jim Sharpless, "and we chose Encompix because it is obviously designed for project-based, engineer-to-order companies." According to Sharpless, another key reason Oberlin chose Encompix was because the solution's standard ERP features addressed the company's needs without the addition of third-party products.
    As with many small companies, Sharpless wears several hats as quality manager and assistant controller. Going forward, he will undertake the additional role of project manager for the Encompix implementation. "We are looking forward to having real-time data on a project's progress, and this will help us control costs," he said. Sharpless added, "To support our ISO 9000 certification, we want to streamline our business processes and improve the flow of information throughout the entire organization. We believe Encompix will help us achieve both objectives."
