Abbey Manufacturing Group Australia, chooses Optimus dash Management Information System
Added by Optimus on February, 23, 2016
Established in 1970, and based in Smithfield NSW, Abbey Manufacturing Group are renowned for producing a wide range of products from Plastic POS Pockets, Plastic Envelopes, Ring Binders and a range of materials, wine boxes, gift boxes, presentation cases, menus, compendiums, signage, decals and so much more.
Christian Macgregor, Operations Manager states:
‘Abbey has diversified a lot over the last 5 years which has added to the complexity of our systems. These systems were becoming time consuming and clunky!
I had been looking for a MIS system that started at the front door with the enquiry right through to despatch and payment. I also needed additional reporting with drill down into our product sales, production costs, factory machine and operator reporting and overall job tracking. The chosen MIS also needed to incorporate our complex manufacturing techniques and we needed the facility to capture information from our factory trade people that could be stored on the job.
We chose Optimus dash as our range of products is massive, with over 90% made to order, therefore the estimating function and job sheets needed to be suitable for our requirements. Optimus offered this and we will be able to configure dash to suit our unique printing services (foil, screen and large format), which made dash the clear winner. We are not offset printers, so one of the off the shelf packages was not flexible enough for us.
I believe Optimus was originally designed for printers, yet they have also moved with the industry changes and developed software that can be configured to manage any product and any substrate. Optimus dash is perfect for a unique business like Abbey which does not fit the standard mould’.
Nicola Bisset, Optimus Group Managing Director comments: ‘We are delighted to welcome Abbey Manufacturing Group as a Customer. The diverse and growing range of products produced by Abbey really highlights how our award winning Optimus dash can manage any print and non printed related products and services’.
