ETO ERP Leader Encompix Selected by Integrated Group

Encompix (www.encompix.com) added another ETO (Engineer-to-Order) manufacturer to its client roster this week in Toronto, Canada. The Integrated Group (www.igcompanies.com) is a collection of diverse companies whose flagship company, ID Merchandising, Inc.; it will be the primary user of Encompix software. ID Merchandising (idmerchandising.com) specializes in high-end point of purchase display units. They do most of the work for Land Rover and BMW for point of purchase displays as well as other large companies. They are particularly proud of their ability to integrate several different media options into a single display. ID is very similar to Programmed Products, ESP and Roy Metals, other key Encompix accounts in how they will process data.

ID has a terrific need for a new software application right now and began looking for software just three months ago. They spent significant time with Lilly-Visual (now Infor) and determined that application would not be a fit because of the heavy reliance on MRP concepts requiring part numbers. They spent time with JD Edwards seeing if that environment could work and they discovered that it was more difficult to use than Lilly. They got on the web and typed "Project Based Manufacturing" and up came Encompix. Total time of sale: 6 days from the first face-to-face meeting.

Encompix has filled the manufacturing software requirements of Engineer-to-Order companies since 1992. The company name reflects the commitment to developing business application solutions that encompass the complex areas of project-based and job-based manufacturing. Encompix provides ETO manufacturers with a competitive advantage by improving bottom line results.
