Unified Solutions Products

System Summary

The key to finding a solution is to look for a product that fits your business and provides the tools you need to track your business. Does the manufacturing process mirror yours? Does the inventory and parts process follow your needs? Will it grow with your business? Can you be up and running quickly? Will your employees use it?

e-Insight ERP is that product for manufacturers in metal industries - the industrial fastener manufacturer, stamping, coating and other industries that take a raw material on a coil or roll and create products or other manufacturer that requires similar product tracking. It is built for your business processes, not generalized for job shops, or a generic application that then must have massive customization completed to make it work for you.

If your organization prefers to use Crystal Reports, we have an ODBC option to allow you to use your favorite reporting tool to create your own reports. Additionally, your data can be shared with Excel and Word via a DDE connection, or your data can be export via standard XML format for use by vendors and customers.
