Below is a snippet of our recent article in the Torque Magazine
Victory Fasteners is a respected fastener manufacturer based in the West Midlands, UK. 95% of its product ranges is purchased from both European materials and quality assured European manufacturers. The company is helmed by experienced Directors who have managed several successful firms, with a combined 75 years of industry experience.
With the business rapidly growing, Victory Fasteners soon found itself in need of a versatile effecting ERP system. Torque quizzed the business on the process of how it chose Merlin Business Software as its software partner, details on the installation and what it has meant for the business…
How did you come to choose Merlin Business Software for Victory Fasteners?
We came across Merlin while exhibiting at the Torque-Expo 2016 show. During this time, we were already exploring other ERP systems that could assist with the business’ continued growth. Merlin was very confident in being able to customise their system to suit Victory Fasteners principle values of having ‘fully traceable’ stock. We arranged a demonstration and haven’t looked back since.
What difference has it made to the business?
Our previous system was very limiting in terms of product visibility. Victory Fasteners had grown since its implementation and the system was no longer able to process at the speed or capacity
required of an expanding business, often affecting the productivity of the user. Merlin has changed our outlook and processes, enabling us to process paperwork faster and more efficiently, with
100% fully lot traceable product, giving us the most effective view on batch and origins. Merlin has opened our product visibility and enabled us to produce job cards at the touch of a button, increasing our manufacturing process dramatically as previously this was a manual operation. We are able to trace stock / processes throughout various stages of manufacture, all without moving
away from the screen. Most importantly, the Merlin system has given Victory Fasteners a secure platform to help achieve and assist in the continued growth of our future goals.
Following on from that, have there been any specific benefits of using Merlin?
The system has improved employee efficiency in every department. The ease of the system and the integration into Victory Fasteners has created benefits for all areas.
Would you recommend Merlin to similar businesses?
Definitely. As previously mentioned, the integration of the system was easy, we were fully supported throughout its implementation and it has greatly increased our Company’s efficiency.
