BACKBONE enables manufacturers of any size to compete more effectively with precision quoting, production management, and optimized costs no matter how complex or variable the products.
Backbone is a production control system designed for growing manufacturers who need a solution to manage today’s complex and highly variable production environments. Let Backbone drive and optimize your production from quote to invoice, and let your accounting software continue handling the finances. Backbone integrates directly with widely used accounting systems. Our specialty is handling the complexities in production that the ERP systems can’t deal with.
Gain immediate control over your open orders and parts lists. Attach custom data fields, and define cost factors to any level of detail. Collect real production results, and compare them versus target production costs. We have the most sophisticated production modeling capabilities on the market. Incrementally refine your processes over time.
Custom Intelligence will tailor a software solution specific to your operational structure and logistical challenges. Our modular software design allows for implementation to be done with minimal operational disruption and seamless integration with existing systems. Post implementation, we’ll provide hands-on support to ensure maximum benefits and efficiencies.
Backbone MRP provides visibility enterprise wide. As an order works its way through each stage of a process, moving from raw materials to finished product, from sales quotation to final invoice; updates are immediately accessible company-wide.
Backbone allows you to manage supply and demand in real time by directly syncing what’s happening on the plant floor and in the warehouse to demand requirements coming from customer orders.
After implementing Backbone, manufacturers have been able to reduce inventory costs, improve work flow and essentially do more with less resources.
Backbone will enable optimizations to your operations as it runs your operations. Collect real production results to perform detailed cost analysis. Over time, problem areas and opportunities for improvement will be revealed. Streamline communication and awareness with custom reports and forms and labels to get the right information to the right place at the right time.
