Berkeley Myles to offer £2000 cash back to companies who change their existing production control software

Berkeley Myles is offering manufacturing companies a £2000 scrappage allowance if they change their existing production control software system.

The Glasgow-based specialist has developed ProgressPlus software which enables manufacturing companies to streamline, automate and integrate the management and control of both shop floor production and administrative processes.

Managing director Tony MacBride believes that many businesses are struggling in the current economic downturn with ineffective systems that suffer from poor functionality and a lack of supplier support.
However he insists that having effective production control software can help improve efficiency and also drive new sales by differentiating businesses from their competitors across the market place.

“Companies need a competitive advantage and an effective system can provide this,” he said.
“Now is the right time to invest and, in order to soften the blow of a changeover, we have matched the government’s car scrappage scheme and are offering a two thousand pounds allowance for companies that change.”
“Unlike the government scheme, the existing system doesn’t have to be ten years old and the only requirement is that it is a competitive product.”

The managing director says that many manufacturing bosses believe changing their system will have a negative impact on their business supply commitments.
However he insists you can make the switch and begin realising the significant operational benefits in the space of a few weeks.

“One of the major concerns for someone when considering the system is that changing over will cause upheaval in their business,” he said.
“However we have the ability to transfer all of your data and configure your existing layouts for quotes, purchase orders and invoicing into a fully integrated and seamless traceability package.”
“The software is easy to use, requires little training and you can make the change and begin to realise the efficiency improvements and significant returns in a very short timescale.”

More than 1200 users throughout the UK and Ireland are benefiting from ProgressPlus which manages all aspects of process control including sales, manufacturing, stock control, despatch, and invoicing.
Key features of the system include its flexibility, robustness, ease of use and its ability to provide full traceability throughout the lifecycle of the production process.
