"Lead times on custom single lead wires was reduced from 8 weeks to 4 weeks" - Dave Thibodeau, President, Quirk Wire, Co., Inc.
"For example, we recently had a rush order arrive at 3:00 pm in the afternoon. This order was completed and was shipped out in the next morning’s UPS pick-up. Prior to using PBS this would have taken us at least three days to accomplish. Our lead time is indeed down to hours, from days." Bill Allhusen, Engineering Manager, Cosense, Inc.

With today's tight margins many companies choose to operate as a make to order manufacturing company. They often produce the same products over and over but generally only when a customer has placed an order.
If you are a make to order manufacturer, PBS Manufacturing is a great ERP solution that can help you in may ways. One common benefit realized is shortened product lead-times. This allows you to turn your orders over faster and more accurately. It often results in lowered costs and can increase your competitive position in your marketplace.
