The challenges facing manufacturing and distribution businesses have increased dramatically in recent times. Businesses face both economic and regulatory pressures, whilst at the same time needing to constantly adapt their business models.
WinMan can help you face these challenges. WinMan ERP is much more than the software brand that runs a company’s business and operational processes — it is the foundation of business success. WinMan ERP starts with a governance structure of processes and controls that fuels an overall continuous process improvement mindset within a business.
A WinMan ERP project instills best practice. In a regulated industry, such as cosmetics, food and pharmaceuticals, where Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) and Good Distribution Practice (GDP) are essential, WinMan will ensure that processes are performed consistently and comply with the organisations quality standards.
A strong and well-managed WinMan ERP project will serve as the foundation for good business governance. WinMan ERP is a way of managing a business; it is not an IT system. WinMan will be a part of the integrated business and operational processes; it will enable and support business decisions, continuous improvement and ultimately success.
For more than ten years, the highly functional and versatile WinMan ERP system has provided the cornerstone for our successful growth, and we are particularly proud to have grown to become no.1 in the UK marketplace by supplying our acclaimed steel access covers and grilles which are 100% British made. WinMan is as important to us as ever, now that we are aiming our innovative products not only at the home market but also at foreign countries planning serious investment in new infrastructure.

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.
