In addition to its manufacturing operation in Dungannon, Northern Ireland, the company recently established a new manufacturing plant in Lisburn, also in Northern Ireland. This site is being used exclusively for the manufacture of the McAvoy SafeSpace Anti-Vandal product range, a particularly strong and fast-growing market for the company.
“McAvoy realised early on that it required a flexible and fully integrated software package for the new premises”
Adrian Walsh, e-Business Manager for the McAvoy Group
“This was both to ensure full advantage was made of the “fresh-start” opportunity it had at Lisburn and to ensure that all business processes were handled in the most cost-effective and efficient way possible.”
McAvoy invited 12 companies to tender for this prestigious contract and the list was reduced to two potential suppliers. Both companies made full presentations to the McAvoy Group’s senior management team and their decision was to award the contract to In2grate Business Solutions.
McAvoy became aware of the scope of joined-up functionality offered by In2grate Enterprise – everything from cost estimation and design through to manufacturing, shop floor scheduling and shipping. In particular the rules-based sales and product specification functionality was something that McAvoy knew would benefit the company in a major way. It would quickly determine lead times, accurately cost and action projects thus providing rapid feedback to the customer.
In2grate Enterprise has been recognised by the McAvoy Group as a comprehensive engineer-to-order solution and as such the optimum solution for the company’s needs at both of its plants. As orders for the McAvoy SafeSpace product continue to grow, In2grate Enterprise, with its wide ranging and totally integrated functionality, will encompass everything from sales estimates to production scheduling and delivery. It will enhance the efficiency of every department from sales through to design, manufacture and shipping.
