Central New York Electronic Manufacturer Grows High-Value Jobs Locally, Gains Competitive Edge Globally

How does a company overcome the challenge of maintaining American jobs while also updating inefficient, disjointed business systems — and remain globally competitive at the same time?

Beside dealing with multinational production facilities and a pending ISO certification, mid-sized manufacturer Pelco Component Technologies needed to consolidate data from three different systems, each with its own database, into one business software solution.

Pelco sought flexibility, usability, and cost-effectiveness to fit their specific industry. They wanted a solution without hidden fees, both upfront and year over year; a solution that would not cause business disruptions; a solution not too time-consuming, too difficult or too overwhelming and inflexible to use; a solution to enable growth and to recoup their investment as quickly as possible.

Cordeck Building Solutions

Helping Manufacturers Grow with Technology

Cordeck’s business growth has been substantial enough to take it well outside its Wisconsin headquarters. With additional sales, plants and distribution in Texas, Tennessee, Ohio and New Jersey, Cordeck is strategically placed to better serve a growing international clientele.

 

"'Whatever it takes' is the motto and a quarter-century ago when the company was founded, we solely manufactured metal deck products so we had a slightly smaller audience. Since then, Cordeck has acquired a more diverse product line allowing for more specialized product, Cordeck Innovative Floor Solutions™. This has allowed us to expand our services to additional unique customers.”

How much did Cordeck Building Solutions save in time and money with xTuple?

  • Heightened employee productivity, saving $22,000 annually on one workflow process alone
  • Switched to Mac systems company-wide, saving $10,000 annually in outsourced IT expense
  • Improved physical inventory accuracy by reducing error rate by 80%
  • Eliminated need for report customization and saved $250-$500 per report

 

 

“With xTuple ERP, everything has a one-piece flow — from quotes to sales to production to invoicing — it has cut our time in half to process all of those orders and allowed us to be more effective in getting and closing jobs."

— Cordeck purchasing manager

ISO is all about repeatability of processes

“...and by the way we planned to use xTuple – and actually do use it on a daily basis – those processes were already in place. Without xTuple, we’d still be writing procedures, testing and figuring it all out [in order] to get our ISO certification."

— Materials Manager, Pelco Component Technologies

Best value for manufacturing

"Most small to mid-sized companies cannot afford the more expensive ERP systems out there, but they do need a system. What set xTuple apart from the start was how solid the functionality was for the price. xTuple's offering was clearly the best value."

— General Manager, Creamer Metal Products

Food Industry is hungry for growth

"When we added the xTuple inventory control module, we weren't just adding a system, but changing the company culture and creating new procedures. Traceability is absolutely required in the food industry. A lot of the ingredients we use can get converted when in the finished product. You have to trace across those lots. xTuple does that for us very well."

— IT manager at Cedarlane

xTuple is our first real ERP solution

“...we like having all of our systems talking to each other. We looked at other solutions, but they were ridiculously expensive and complicated, like SAP. xTuple was the first one we found to fit a small to mid-sized manufacturer like us.”

— President & CEO, Pelco Component Technologies

Vertical integration for full internal control of quality, cost, lead-time

“One of the most cost-effective business tools we use day-in and day-out to run our operations is xTuple. We have the flexibility to extend the functionality to meet our needs; we're not constrained by the software. All of our products are made-to-order; that’s thousands of different configurations of our products — and they all require a quick turnaround for us to stay competitive. Using xTuple has helped us run and grow our business.”

— Operations VP, Magna-Power Electronics

xTuple was instrumental in move to ISO

“We've always been customer-focused. ISO was a logical next step to improve on that focus and ensure we continue to consistently achieve the highest levels of quality and service. xTuple’s integration [integrated operations across all departments and several remote locations] was key in facilitating our move to ISO.

For example, we make significant use of the incident tracker to manage non-conformance issues related to suppliers and customers. In one place we have a complete history of the issue, who was involved, when, and how it was resolved. We saw another return on investment (ROI) when it was time to get our ISO certification.”

— CFO, Richart Distributors — manufacturer and reseller of FLOMORE oil field pumps, valves and gauges

Is xTuple right for you?

If you're ready to ditch spreadsheets, basic accounting packages such as QuickBooks, and other fragmented systems, you've come to the right place. Imagine the time and money you’d save if all manufacturing and back-office processes were consolidated and automated. See if xTuple's features are right for your business requirements.
