How it works

Here is what flexible and cost-effective ERP software applications for make-to-order production companies by 1Ci that can be easily implemented offer.

A go-to solution for make-to-order production
1Ci solutions help make-to-order companies control their production processes and rapidly adapt them to changing conditions, and fuel their decision-making with customizable reports and historical data to analyze the whole business and its parts to unlock the growth points. As a result, the company can complete more orders and be always on time.
Scale as your business grows
1C:Drive (1Ci ERP for SMBs) features a flexible scalability model that allows companies to start with a minimal feature set and add more modules as the business grows. New business processes can be automated easily and on the fly.
Effective production management
With an ERP for job shops software, companies can automate the full range of production management tasks and manage complex production orders, consisting of multiple material resources and/or requiring numerous equipment units. Also, any job shop management team can easily assign tasks to employees and track their performance.

Solutions by 1Ci allow keeping all master data, product, and project documentation in one place. What is even more important, the system scales easily so that the company could add new processes without additional IT costs.

Operational analysis
Business data analysis is key to unlocking the growth potential, and this is precisely the task ERP is tailored to. With this solution, job shops can optimize resource usage, monitor material consumption, prevent theft, and identify bottlenecks in their production processes. In particular, these insights allow managers and business owners to understand whether it is necessary to add new equipment or the existing infrastructure could provide a higher ROI.
Also, having all these data in place makes the whole procurement flexible and adaptable, which allows the company to employ faster decision-making in response to changes in circumstances.
Planning and control production
1Ci ERP solutions allow make-to-order production companies to get full control over the production schedule and complete more orders on time: register production resources, prioritize, plan, and monitor production order execution. ERP software automatically adds new production orders to the work centers schedule once added to the system, minimizing error risks in planning. The tool helps to flexibly re-plan the production schedule in case of extra charges, issues with suppliers, or delays of materials.
Effective MRP
One of the biggest challenges in the job shop business is effective warehouse usage and materials management. With 1Ci ERP solutions, companies can optimize warehouse usage, track and control production resources' availability. The software allows getting up-to-date information about current or potential risks of shortage of materials and other resources.
The customer demand analysis can be used to purchase required materials and forecast demand in materials supplies.
Profitability and business performance monitoring
The 1Ci make-to-order ERP system can be set to monitor actual production costs and profitability with the breakdown of the customers’ orders. They can also monitor production costs and run variance analysis and evaluate the ROI of the new equipment. This will help production companies accelerate turnover of working capital, decrease labor costs, and increase production monitoring and control quality.
Enterprise-level customization
Unlike many other ERP solutions for SMBs, 1Ci ERP - 1C:Drive - is flexible and customized to support unique and rapidly changing business processes. This makes our job shop ERP software a perfect fit for job shops and make-to-order production companies.
Real-time order management
Effective job shop-style production is impossible without effective order tracking and real-time control. The company needs to prioritize customers’ orders, manage the delivery terms and react to the changes in the orders fast.
