Precision and accuracy are fundamental to the fabrications industry; a millimeter off target can be problematic. Fabricated products can also be complex. The ability to supply goods on time and to specification is important for customer retention and the bottom line. To achieve this, systems need to be integrated as they bring together all the data and processes in a timely manner, to provide full traceability and visibility of the business and customer requirements.
The product configurator can produce a detailed bill of materials that can be linked to other documents such as engineering drawings and parts lists. Each job created on the system can have its own specific job number that can be carried from the initial job description through to the order, project, delivery, and invoice.
Every department has a degree of responsibility to ensure total quality. By utilising the document manager, all documents such as test results, specifications, BoMs, invoices, proposals etc. can be stored against the relevant contact record or project. Managers can also stay ahead of potential issues by proactively monitoring and logging the level of defects and by-products.
WinMan ERP solution provides real-time and accurate reports for the finance department based on current jobs or projects in the system. It can note in detail the cost of the project, including the amount of each material used and highlighting any variations.
WinMan allows accurate tracking of open-ended jobs, where the amount of time spent on the job and the materials used can all be logged. This provides the invoicing team with all of the information required to correctly track, cost, and bill the fabricated project.
Includes key functions to help metal fabrication companies increase operational efficiency and productively. From sales people to fabricators to buyers, the different features within the WinMan ERP system will assist all departments in carrying out their job responsibilities. Operating from one system streamlines all company processes, consolidates disparate systems and offers a 360 degree view of the business.

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.
