Economical individual production
Our project management enables you to centrally plan and control all project-related processes and data. Orders are managed and processed like projects as early as the quotation and planning phase.
This means that the business calculation can easily be transferred to the corresponding manufacturing view for production if required. With the help of the EDM or PDM interface, growing parts lists can also be transferred to the subsequent process stages without manual effort - for consistently efficient order processing in your projects.
Planning step by step
Changes are often made to the detailed structure of the tools after the quotation phase. For example, product-related parts lists sometimes have to be adapted and expanded afterwards.
However, this is no problem with our ERP software for toolmaking. We offer you the possibility to work with growing parts lists. Additional data can thus be successively entered to finalise the design plans.
APplus provides you with a powerful tool for planning, controlling and documenting your service processes. The core of the service function area is a system and device management that documents exactly which components are installed at the customer's site and in which condition.
All relevant tasks can be completed quickly and easily in service orders. All requirements, from standard functions such as the allocation of a tool in APplus to typical tasks of a mechanic and travel time accounting to the procurement of spare parts, can be mapped. Of course, maintenance contracts can also be agreed in APplus within the framework of any terms and due dates.
Our intelligent service solution supports you in the optimal planning of your personnel resources. Integrated skill management allows you to store required certifications and take them into account when selecting technicians. On site, field service staff receive all important information and documents on the service call automatically sent to their smartphone, tablet or laptop. The data recorded during and after maintenance, such as performance records, are then directly available in APplus.
Project costs at a glance
A central factor for the profitability of a project is a comprehensive calculation. Here, our ERP solution supports you with a broad functional portfolio that is optimally tailored to your requirements.
Whether preliminary, final or ongoing costing including detailed variance analyses - APplus provides you with an up-to-date overview of planned and actual cost expenditure at all times.
Detailed planning board
APplus already supports you in the offer phase with project-related effort and resource planning. This allows you to start with the rough planning of deadlines, personnel and costs at the earliest possible stage.
The production processes are scheduled in the graphic planning board: it presents all results in a clear and modern display. Any fine corrections such as postponements can be made directly in the planning board.
