Every design engineering project can vary in complexity, time, costs and resources needed to complete the project. From the initial design to the engineering of the product, precision and accuracy is fundamental to success. WinMan ERP has all the features to help firms track the progress of the engineering project from the initial order to completion.
WinMan ERP enable comprehensive tracking of ETO projects including the number of man-hours spent on the project and all materials used for accurate cost calculations. Detailed information such as required materials, invoices, technical drawings and multiple quotes can all be saved and accessed from the relevant project file on the system.
This will cater to different types of planning such as common sub-assemblies, sub-contractor management and materials purchasing. The production scheduler is a useful platform for schedulers to plan projects since it highlights available capacity and helps excessive expenditures at early stages.
Depending on the size and complexity of the design project, it could last weeks, months or even years, which can tie up cash-flow. WinMan ERP provides the ability to create 'Staged Payments' based on project milestones. It provides full visibility of the costs and can highlight overspends at early stages.
All customer, supplier and partner data can be stored within WinMan's CRM function. Multiple quotes, technical drawings, contracts, communications and invoices can all be stored electronically against the relevant contacts.
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.

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.
