Broadcast equipment manufacturer, TSL Products, is expecting to significantly reduce administration times, improve the accuracy of business critical data and better meet shorter lead times, after investing in a fully integrated enterprise resource planning solution from K3 Syspro.
The company’s new Syspro solution will replace a legacy accounting system, which was supported by manual spreadsheets and struggled to support the company’s manufacturing processes. Together with Syspro’s built-in Materials Requirements Planning (MRP) module, the new solution is expected to help the company reduce the risk of material shortages in production and eliminate human error throughout every facet of the supply chain.
Terry Boon, Operations Director at TSL, explained: “Our previous system did not fully support our manufacturing processes and we became increasingly reliant on human guesswork and product knowledge in our planning. As we grew as a business, the risk of error also grew, especially with the number of products and level of business that we currently manage. Syspro’s MRP functionality reduces this risk, while maintaining our ability to deliver to promise with short lead-times, which is essential if we are to remain an industry leading organisation.
TSL Products designs, manufacturers and markets a range of broadcast equipment workflow solutions that serve to simplify operations within the television broadcast, cable, satellite, Internet Protocol Television (IPTV) and IT industries. The business is already on an impressive growth path and has experienced a four-fold increase in output levels over the last five years. As the company aims to expand to a £10 million business over the next 2-3 years, it sees the integration of data through SYSPRO and the benefit of having just one core set of data updated in real time, as key to future growth enablement.
