A materials resource planning system designed by Caliach Limited for manufacturing companies.
CaliachMRP is Caliach’s original, ground-breaking manufacturing management system (MRPII) for managing core manufacturing activities.
With an established track record, CaliachMRP’s reputation is based upon its ease-of-use and straightforward implementation.
It provides a disciplined environment in which decisions concerning supply and demand can be fully supported by fact.
CaliachMRP remains an ideal tool for businesses seeking to automate core manufacturing activities and for small businesses.
CaliachMRP is a closed-loop system using an advanced relational database system, which holds all information in a central data file.
As each transaction is completed, the data is recorded and stored in the central file. The data can be accessed by any authorised department, enabling the best use of information throughout the company.
CaliachMRP manages scheduling, costing, MRP, sales orders, purchase orders, works orders, stock control, bills of material and accounts.
Vision was very easy to install. We don’t have a dedicated IT specialist and we find Vision easy to maintain.
Support from Caliach is very, very good and the facility to download updates from the Internet works well. We’re very pleased with it.
Bigger systems can’t do half of what Caliach Vision does, In terms of value for money, Caliach Vision has to be the best system on the market.
Caliach have developed Vision from a manufacturing and engineering background and addressed all the quality and stock issues.
Caliach Vision is superb for managing stock control - you can batch parts and track them when you sell them. It’s foolproof and feels really secure.
We can sell a pressure test plug and Caliach Vision will allocate all the parts automatically, notify any shortages and produce a picking list for the works. The phantom parts feature saves having to build lots of different products which get put into stock waiting to be sold.
In one product group alone, this has helped reduced stock levels from £50,000 to £32,000. Because Caliach Vision is integrated it gives you the benefit of being able to analyse stock and sales, enabling us to make better decisions about re-ordering - that’s where we are really pleased with it.
Caliach Vision has proven to be reliable and scalable - we have developed and integrated both what we do and how we do it with the system over the past eight years.
Credit control has improved, cash flow is now well managed and proper management of supplier payments has allowed us to agree improved terms with several key suppliers.
I am keen to roll out V4 so that that we can automate more of the KPIs. I also want to leverage that functionality to achieve increased discipline around inventory and work order processing.
