COUNTERPART ETO ERP Reduces Lead Time for GP Reeves

COUNTERPART ETO ERP Reduces Lead Time for GP Reeves

With 45 years of experience designing and building customer precision equipment, GP Reeves, Inc. has become one the leaders in material dispensing. The company offers a complete line of grease, oils, ambient, and heated material dispensing equipment and automation. With a patented air removal process, GP Reeves supplies businesses with a low maintenance highly repeatable system built in Holland, Michigan.

Kevin Reeves, President of the company recently explained his experience reducing long lead times using COUNTERPART ETO ERP.  This brief video explains.

Reeves noted, if working on a bigger machine, or system order, he immediately knows the leads times using COUNTERPART. With other systems, Reeves would have to manually order parts ahead of time. He shared, “Quite often those are expensive parts that take a long time to get. With other systems, I would end up with two of those things. COUNTERPART reduces lead times so that a job can be turned around more quickly.”


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.

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.
