Specialist ERP for repeatable precision


For Precision Engineering to excel, there needs to be visibility of machines, employees and data in order for manufacturers to elevate their businesses to the next level.

Having live dashboards that give you live insight into what is happening on the shop floor, and a Drag and Drop Gantt Chart planning tool, manufacturers can manage the entire production process to ensure they are getting the most out of their machines and employees.

Material Requirements Planning (MRP)

  • Designed to meet the needs of progressive make-to-order, make-to-stock, and mixed mode manufacturing companies.
  • Use the Control Desk feature for rapid creations of suggested purchase and works orders and also use MRP functionality to make suggestions about orders that should be cancelled or rescheduled.
  • Improved visibility gives you more control over your inventory, stock, purchase orders andworks orders.

Quality control and traceability

  • Accurately trace every individual element of the production cycle and show an audit trail at every stage.
  • Easily identify a non-conforming part, which batch it came from, when it was produced, which product it’s been used in and where it is now.
  • Generate reports to support evidence-based decision making for continuous improvement.
  • Control non-conformity in materials and components to eliminate defects in the manufacturing process.
  • Produce FAIRs (First Article Inspection Reports), demonstrating complete compliance throughout.
  • Quarantine faulty or damaged parts and keep audit trails so items can be scrapped or reworked.
  • The ‘Quality Tree’ feature helps you keep all your certificates of conformity and associated quality documents in one place, against the finished batch.

Day to day scheduling

Orch Dashboard
  • Use the Drag and Drop Gantt Chart to identify bottlenecks before they happen so you can utilise machines and resources and proactively make changes that do not affect production speed.
  • Keep everyone in the loop with a live plan that will update and alert when any amends are made, meaning that everyone is working from the same plan.

Enhanced Security

Your data is protected in the cloud as it is hosted separately from your main domain. It’s protected from cyberattacks, and from attacks to your on-premise infrastructure.

Advanced threat protection is provided via Palo Alto Wildfire firewalls, an intrusion detection and prevention system (IDS / IPS). It analyses threat intelligence from the largest global community to identify unknown threats and stop attackers in their tracks, and is particularly effective for dealing with “zero-day threats” – innovative attacks that haven’t yet been identified, acknowledged or fixed by the system it’s trying to infiltrate.

Access uses enterprise-level technology to identify and fix vulnerabilities that threaten the security of your IT Infrastructure. We'll deploy patches as they become available, ensuring your systems are up to date and protected.
