The rate of design, production, manufacturing and distribution within the textiles industry has been accelerated due to advancement in technology but, companies face tough challenges such as increased operational costs and global competition. WinMan ERP software can help businesses streamline workflows and processes to create a leaner manufacturing environment.
The combinations and variations of yarns, fabrics or clothing for manufacturers can be limitless meaning paper-based master batch records can be costly. Our ERP system can create 'Electronic Master Batch records' that will reduce operations costs, lower paper usage, achieve full traceability and increase transparency between departments.
From raw materials to finished product to delivery, the lot and serial number feature permits accurate tracking of goods movement. Users can access detailed inventory information such as the location, consignment stock, stock awaiting dispatch and defect rates via the WinMan ERP system. It eliminates the need for separate inventory spreadsheets of product variations and helps increase the level of accuracy and efficiency. The weight variations of raw materials can also be measured and logged into the system i.e. the pre-drying and after drying out weight for accurate cost invoicing.
With integrated features like MRP, the Product Configurator and Workforce Management, schedulers and planners can organise production resources easily because all the required information will be integrated into one ERP system.
Sales departments can utilise the CRM function to manage prospect, schedule activities and create call-lists based on a range of specific criteria. There is an option to link telephone systems for on-screen dialling and pop-ups for inbound calls. All support enquiries, sales history, previous conversations, contacts, relevant documents and scheduled calls can be stored directly against customer records for effective account management
Size, colour and style matrixes can be built within WinMan to help improve accuracy and efficiency. Users can use the matrixes to separate products into categories and pull sales and stock levels reports seamlessly.

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.
