Being able to trace materials from purchase point through finished product each step of the way is very helpful. We benefit from the ability to see what a particular part was fabricated from, how it was packaged or bundled, which truck or trucks it was loaded on and when it was delivered. All of this is electronic and can be tracked right from the user terminal. The ability to have a history of sales by item is very helpful. We can adjust our minimum and maximum quantities by individual item based on past sales or projected future sales. The document vault is very helpful for storing a wide variety of information . We can attach documents electronically and store within a given project or store material test reports on materials that require mill certifications. This greatly reduces our need for paper filing systems.
The coil and material tracking has been most useful for me. I am able to track materials right from their purchase through the manufacturing process to the finished product. I like the ability to attach purchase orders and assign materials to specific projects.
Getting the data base set up correctly from the beginning has been very frustrating. We didn't have a clear view in the beginning how one function or setting affected another department or function of the program. Not being able to visualize that from the beginning has made it difficult to get everything to function properly. Also, this system needs an in-house program administrator. This is something we didn't know and were not prepared for prior to our live implementation

While completing my MBA, I was a summer intern at a company that used the Adjutant platform by ABIS. I was amazed at the level of thought and best practices that this ERP system had in place throughout every area.
Compared with other ERP's and even CRM's that I have used, this system made life much easier. Other seasoned employees at the company discussed the dramatic increase in revenues and profitability thanks to Adjutant and ABIS over the years, and they all swore by the system.
There is not a doubt in my mind that if organizations are serious about wanting a comprehensive ERP system that will make their business smarter, increase revenues, and get the most out of their employees, then they will not find a better product than Adjutant by ABIS.
