Manufacturing companies streamline ERP processing with OpCon
Automation in manufacturing can be complex. The interconnected applications provide core functions such as sales order processing, warehousing and distribution. Compounding this situation, many mainstream ERP applications have dozens of modules working through different platforms. This often results in an accidental architecture that is difficult to manage. OpCon is the solution to unify the manufacturing environment through any single point-of-control.
Customers of large ERP systems face high costs for customization at the initial implementation and when upgrades are due. Enterprise workload automation can help manage both. Using repeatable automatic workflows to test each customization enables changes to quickly roll into production.
OpCon also makes it easy to create strategic workflows that help clients avoid the need for new development. Using these techniques, our customers lower overall costs and increase the value their business gains from an ERP system.

Without the automation, we’d have to have at least one dedicated position just to run and monitor the daily scheduling.
We continually meet SLA targets despite the fact that we have more transactions than ever going through our systems.
Event-driven automation in OpCon also lets us do things we never would have attempted in a manual environment. For instance, we have jobs that schedule jobs, and jobs that are triggered when an external event occurs. We haven’t yet found any scenario that OpCon can’t automate.
OpCon gives us a real visibility in the entire IT-environment, in our tasks and their functioning. OpCon provides us the capability to control the impact of changes in a user-friendly way.
From April through December of 2007, we saved 2,001,230 operational keystrokes.
OpCon saves the IT department 10 man-hours per day. When you factor in all the processes we’ve automated for other departments, it saves the credit union another eight man-hours per day.
We really felt that OpCon was going to that deeper layer to automate the things that are truly a concern to us.
People inside the credit union as well as customers outside have noticed and complimented us on the improvement in service.
Using OpCon, we can automate any program written in any environment we use. It makes the difficult easy.
SMA Solutions is essential to our daily operations.
