Automotive ERP Software

An agile and scalable solution for manufacturers and distributors 

The Automotive industry is fast-moving and growing due to increasing customer demand.

Purchase Order & Replenishment

WinMan facilitates forward replenishment using both managed forecast and average usage data. All purchases can be methodically traced from the initial purchase order to the point of reselling the goods. Real-time data captured through modern devices combined with the MRP functionality will provide Purchase Managers with clear supply and demand information. Advanced Kanban facilities can visually control regularly purchased items.

Logistics and Distribution

Integrated tools to assist manufacturers with distribution tasks such as automatic creation of packing lists and delivery notes, sending pre-configured EDI's to customers, and organising pre-defined delivery routes and specific route planning. The advanced warehouse management (WMS) tool optimises warehouse and resource efficiency. Warehouse managers can use hand held devices to receive goods, move inventory and check stock quantities allowing users from all areas of the business will be able to access up-to-date inventory information.

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.

WinMan will give executive management a much easier way to get into the granular data. Give them truer, more accurate information on a timely basis so they can make better decisions.
