PSL Datatrack is celebrating 30 years at the forefront of production control software development for precision engineering subcontractors. It all started in February 1988 when Prospec Systems, the company behind the software, introduced a software solution for precision engineering companies that offered a practical, simple and logical solution to managing production and improving overall business efficiency.
One issue facing successful sub contract engineering companies is how to deal with the extra administration that goes hand in hand with an increase in orders and winning new customers. Cutting Edge Precision Engineering Ltd (CE Precision), a manufacturer of high quality precision engineered parts and assemblies, was facing exactly this situation having experienced a recent significant expansion of its business.
The 2017 version of PSL Datatrack's production control software has just been released. The emphasis of this version is very much on improved reporting and traceability throughout to provide valuable information to all areas of the business. Current users, with a valid support contract, can benefit from these enhancements, at no additional cost; whilst those subcontract engineering companies investing for the first time will automatically receive the latest version of the modules they require to meet their manufacturing and administration needs.
DP Engineering began to expand its engineering business significantly back in 2003. They soon realised that their existing procedures would not be capable of supporting the planned expansion. After assessing options for production control software, it became clear that only a few suppliers catered for a small subcontract precision engineering company with significant growth ambitions. It was vital for DP Engineering that its expansion should be supported by robust software that offered the functionality and adaptability to meet the company's evolving needs. PSL Datatrack fitted the bill exactly.
