Precision and agility is fundamental within the Electronics and High Tech sectors because of the number of potential variants and specifications of the products made. It is a fast-moving environment where customer demands are constantly changing. To remain competitive the quality of the product and the service is key to success.
WinMan ERP Software has all the functionality to help electronics manufacturers grow while maintaining quality and supporting Lean Manufacturing practices.
This feature takes items from processed sales orders and automates a traditionally manual process. It provides the planning function with the ability to order required materials and help plan production timetables.
To help organisations generate new business and maintain customer and supplier relationships. All relevant supplier, customer and prospect documents, communications, offices locations and company contacts can be safely stored in one place. Activities and tasks such as calls or emails can be scheduled against a contact so, it appears on the user’s dashboard.
Accurate forecasting could be key to just-in-time production and meeting customer demands. It can be the main driver from production through to sale and distribution. Sales can then be compared to forecast to review accuracy. A range of reports and dashboards can be produced for different departments within the WinMan system.
WinMan ERP improves visibility throughout the supply chain from the initial materials to the sales order. The serial number feature provides traceability of all components within the manufacturing process. It is an intuitive system that will allow electronics manufacturers to maintain all product and manufacturing information including alternate manufacturing instructions (setup and runtime) as well as test specifications, enabling the optimisation of all available resources.
Exception reporting can point to specific material or manufacturing process issues. All this data can be either viewed on the system or translated into a real-time dashboard on the shop floor.

Our WinMan ERP system allows me to directly and quickly access the management information I need to run the business – real-time reporting of key performance indicators such as operating efficiencies and deliveries. Vitally, more consistent pricing gives a truer margin on the work we perform. Meanwhile the system has supported our company’s strategy of investment for growth and its ability to meet delivery promises, hence strengthening its reputation in the marketplace as a reliable and trustworthy supplier. An accurate delivery date to the nearest day can now be assigned by our sales administration staff within half-an-hour of an order being placed. We proudly meet over 99% of those dates.
As a director of the business it was important to me that the system we implemented not only met our functional requirements, but also came from a supplier that was prepared to take on single source responsibility. Of all of the companies we evaluated, WinMan were the only one that ticked all the boxes.
The underlying advantage of WinMan for John Sankey was its flexibility and the ease with which it could be tailored to suit the company’s specific needs.
Our objective was to streamline data processing and substantially reduce keystrokes – a 50% reduction was the minimum target – and a lot of that keystroking was to do with assignment. The more non-value-adding activity we can take out the better.
