Screw Machine Shop and IQMS Stand Together for Success

Contract manufacturer, Standby Screw Machine Products Co., switches from five separate operating systems to one total manufacturing ERP solution from IQMS

PASO ROBLES, CALIF. - IQMS, a manufacturing ERP software and MES developer with an ongoing, proactive commitment to its product and relationships, today announced that it has been selected by contract manufacturer, Standby Screw Machine Products Co. A screw machine shop for the appliance, automotive, construction, lawn and garden care, marine, motor shaft, outdoor power equipment and multiple other industries, Standby Screw produces a wide range of custom-designed parts using low to high volume turning operations, as well as a complete line of flexible secondary offerings.

When considering a new ERP vendor, Standby Screw desired to consolidate its five individual legacy systems - NCR, gage, statistics, SPC and manufacturing - into one complete software solution. Its individual systems were causing labor intensive data entry, poor costing tracking and difficulty scheduling when it came to Standby Screw's industry-specific operations such as lot splitting and batch processing.

Standby Screw considered a total of eight software vendors before ultimately concluding that IQMS offered the most complete ERP system and was uniquely positioned to solve Standby Screw's disparate systems problem. With IQMS, Standby Screw is investing in an industry-specific ERP system that addresses its key selection criteria for more robust scheduling options and comprehensive planning tools for continuous real-time costing.

"To transition from five individual systems to IQMS' powerful ERP software is going to be a huge improvement for Standby Screw Machine Products Co.," said Glenn Nowak, vice president at IQMS. "Almost immediately, Standby Screw will gain more time and greater insight into every aspect of their business so they can focus on what they do best - producing exceptional products at competitive prices."
