An ERP for ETO and project-based manufacturers
Aptean Encompix ERP is the leading ERP system for engineer-to-order (ETO) and project-based manufacturers. The ETO ERP software was specifically designed for engineering-intensive companies and provides project costing, milestone billing, revenue recognition, contribution reporting, bill-of-material (BOM) management, and more.
ETO and project-based manufacturers face business challenges that simply cannot be resolved by traditional ERP software. These companies need to be able to provide to customers, manage all aspects of complex projects, deliver on time and on budget–all while keeping a close eye on cash flow. There is intense pressure to reduce costs, shorten cycle times, while maintaining high quality. Finally, engineer-to-order companies need an accurate picture of the profitability of each project in order to comprehend the impact on the business.

The Encompix team understood our pain. We can produce a line that has up to 12 unique machines, and the Encompix team understood how engineering, production, shipping, billing and accounting works. We could implement Encompix ERP and accomplish all of our goals. With other systems, it would be a long, painful task.
We were worried about the shop floor guys learning the new system, particularly in terms of collecting data on jobs and sub-jobs throughout the day. It required more interaction with the computer than they were use to doing, but it went surprisingly well.
