About COUNTERPART ETO ERP:
Unlike many ETO ERP solutions COUNTERPART is an engineering-centric solution. Most ERP systems are back-office accounting solutions and distracted by CRM and other operational functions. COUNTERPART ensures there are no features which detract from focusing on the BOM (Bill of Materials) to address the fast-changing engineering challenges of ETO manufacturers.
COUNTERPART enables manufacturing teams to access the information needed to do the job. By offering a bi-directional software solution integrated with SOLIDWORKS® to share real-time information with those who need it, engineers and purchasing have a non-stop and instantaneous job progress status report. These COUNTERPART elements allow ETO manufacturers to leverage the information to improve engineering efficiency.
According to COUNTERPART General Manager Andrew Schutte, “When ETO manufacturers improve visibility into project monitoring and focus on challenges and opportunities for improvement, best-in-class lean manufacturing is achieved.”
Schutte noted that the project management capability with COUNTERPART enhances teams’ efficiency by configuring the software solution to meet the work environment and specific engineering needs. Every job is assigned to the right team member prioritized by release date, lead times, due dates, and more. Every engineering-focused manufacturer will appreciate the critical functionality focus.”
