Project Highlights: 

As Beckwood Press grew, it faced a massive challenge. The company has many disconnected systems that kept important operational data within silos. The team needed an ERP partner to help them drive systems integration, gain greater visibility into its data, and offer enhanced tools to both track and accurately cost its production.

Beckwood chose abas because it had the features they needed and, from Beckwood's forward-looking perspective, more of the cutting-edge features it might need to support its future growth. After the abas ERP implementation, Beckwood improved data visibility and shareability, as well as adding the costing tools it needed.

The company also customized an estimating component in abas to help them generate quotes for customer orders. The custom estimator takes pre-made estimated BOMs of common subassemblies that use up-to-date cost information from the system and combines them with sales formulas to generate an accurate and fast quote. This streamlines the estimating process and ensures that current cost data is being used, a win-win for both Beckwood's customers and for profitability. Beckwood Press can now easily track and cost everything it does.
