Benefit of WinMan ERP Software

Product Configurator

It is a built-in feature that help users create accurate and precise bill of materials for made to order products.

  • Entry and Modification Selections - Ability to amend orders up to final order confirmation; once the order is confirmed it will create a bill of materials encapsulating process route data.
  • Enabled, Calculation, Default, Visible and Price - The configurator can be used to control settings against an option or it can be based upon other settings and selections already made.
  • Production Planning - Based upon the options and dimensions selected, WinMan will create multi-level structures or bills of materials including processes and sundry cost items when an order is firmed. Prior to firming the order, users have complete visibility of the requirements of these orders to assist with planning.

Transport Allocation

Furniture is not always easy to move, so it is often delivered by the manufacturer or through a dedicated partner. This delivery may require two people as well as an agreed upon date and time for delivery.

  • WinMan will allocate an entire order or individual order lines to the appropriate means of transportation directly from sales order processing. Default transportation methods, delivery times, routes and more can also be set up based on the postcode.
  • Provides a load management screen with load or unload capability by customer location. Capacity constraints such as volume or number of drops can be included as required. This also provides an interface to third party transport optimization software.
  • A combination of manufacturing, shipping (sequencing) and traceability labeling that utilize barcodes can be created from the sales and delivery sequence data.

Increased Efficiencies

Streamlining furniture manufacturing processes and increasing efficiency can help create competitive advantage. WinMan has the ability to:-

  • Group manufacturing requirements - For common materials profiles such as fabrics, sheets, timber or common cutting patterns.
  • Material optimization - Link to nesting technology often supplied with machinery so materials can be processed as a combined order. Actual material usage can then be recorded.
  • Hand held and Kiosk Devices - Integration with devices to facilitate tasks such as manufacturing completion, inspections, vehicle load sequences and loading bay sequences for deliveries.
  • Aftercare and Customer Service Management - Completed integrated CRM with a support case feature, where tickets can be raised on the system directly via phone enquiry, email or the customer portal. It has automatic handling of e-mail correspondence via support case reference and automatic or manual assigning of cases.

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.
