Governance, Risk & Compliance

WinMan Governance

The challenges facing manufacturing and distribution businesses have increased dramatically in recent times. Businesses face both economic and regulatory pressures, whilst at the same time needing to constantly adapt their business models.

WinMan ERP Risk and Compliance Feature


WinMan can help you face these challenges. WinMan ERP is much more than the software brand that runs a company’s business and operational processes — it is the foundation of business success. WinMan ERP starts with a governance structure of processes and controls that fuels an overall continuous process improvement mindset within a business.

A WinMan ERP project instills best practice. In a regulated industry, such as cosmetics, food and pharmaceuticals, where Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) and Good Distribution Practice (GDP) are essential, WinMan will ensure that processes are performed consistently and comply with the organizations quality standards.

Other areas where WinMan supports governance and compliance include:

  • Full ‘Cradle to Grave’ and ‘Grave to Cradle’ lot traceability from source through to consumption to final delivery at the customer site
  • Built-in security features make sure only suitable, qualified staff can perform certain system tasks
  • Engineering Change Control Processes where only approved versions of product structures are available for manufacture
  • Detailed audit trails of all transactions and electronic signature capability at the point of manufacture with automated data capture.
  • Test and monitor raw material batches to ensure conformance before releasing to the manufacturing process
  • Ability to measure and track supplier product quality performance
  • Integrated document management for training materials and sales orders
  • Material and resource planning manages capacity, helping to ensure that an organisation functions within its maximum operating threshold.

A strong and well-managed WinMan ERP project will serve as the foundation for good business governance. WinMan ERP is a way of managing a business; it is not an IT system. WinMan will be a part of the integrated business and operational processes; it will enable and support business decisions, continuous improvement and ultimately success.

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.
