Circuit Check Chooses IFS Applications for Engineer-To-Order Manufacturing ERP
Testing equipment manufacturer gains integrated project management and global ERP capabilities
IFS, the global enterprise applications company, announces that Circuit Check Inc., a global leader in test, automation and interfacing solutions for electronics and electro-mechanical device manufacturers has selected IFS Applications™ as its Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system of record.
Minneapolis-based Circuit Check will move off of a competing ERP application, and is planning measurable process improvements including:
- Increased profits of $250,000 per year or more through improved visibility to resource constraints, decrease in required daily production meetings and by eliminating lost time caused by frequent crashes of their legacy system
- Consistent and automated billing processes that enable Circuit Check to efficiently invoice customers based on agreed-upon project milestones
- Streamline engineer-to-order processes due to embedded project management, production scheduling, project accounting and 3D CAD design
- Multi-currency, multi-language capabilities to support global operations on a single instance of the software
“Our business has been evolving towards more project-centric activity as we experience rapid growth in our engineered services division,” Circuit Check CFO, Brad Martin, said. “Implementing IFS Applications will help us streamline our project and revenue lifecycle and pave the way for further growth. Our current customers will also benefit from more consistent administrative processes across our multiple divisions, which will improve their experience collaborating with us on equipment design and delivery.”
Mike Lorbiecki, IFS vice president of sales for North America, added, “Global engineer-to-order manufacturers like Circuit Check need ERP to manage the interconnected tasks and processes associated with a complex project, but also accurately capture and bill for earned value as the project progresses according to the contract with their customer. Due to its powerful project accounting and execution functionality, IFS Applications is the solution of choice for these companies, particularly those like Circuit Check that serve demanding sectors like automotive, medical, industrial, telecommunications, consumer and aerospace. Circuit Check also has global operations and multiple divisions, which makes them an even better fit for IFS. We look forward to seeing them leverage IFS Applications to maximise value delivered to current customers and stakeholders and reach new plateaus of growth in the future.”
