WinMan ERP features

Production Planning and Costing

Material costs, setup times calculated to the minute, and labor rates can all be added to the process for accurate job costing. This can help plan 'light to dark' screen printing, primary and secondary processes, and batch production schedules.

Administration of 'Call off' Orders

Production of popular or batch goods can be made in bulk and stored for when the client requires it. Goods that require difficult to source materials can be made in advance when materials are available and stored until ordered.

Print Specifications

With the range of different finishes, type of materials, print processes and colors, creating a print specification or a quote can be complex. These options along with the costings and RRP can be uploaded into the 'WinMan Product Configurator' for speedy quotation and invoicing. All documents will be safely stored against the client record for future access.

Finance and Accounting

Price break calculations, loyalty discounts or special promotions can be uploaded into the system for automatic pricing calculations. For credit account customers, invoices can be automated and emailed out on specified dates. Management will be able to pull different types of account reports such as debtors and creditors, balance sheets, expenses summary, purchasing spend and profitability reports.


These can be created to monitor the job from start to finish. It can include specific milestones like client approval of artwork, materials ordering, terms and conditions etc. Sign-off processes can be integrated into the workflow and all relating documents will be safely stored against the relevant project.

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.
