Dusty Alexander, President & CEO
Manufacturers today are struggling with the herculean task of analyzing how each area of operation is affecting the overall performance of their business. They are constantly seeking to exercise control over every factor that is affecting the cost of production. To make this task easier, manufacturers are fishing for a single ERP solution that covers everything from CRM, inventory management, quality management, job costing, and scheduling to get a clear picture of their operations. This is where Global Shop Solutions come in. As a provider of ERP software for manufacturing, the company helps boost Return On Investment (ROI) for its clients offering them all the applications required for efficient manufacturing. “We create visibility across all the systems, so employees can do their jobs more efficiently and management can make better-informed decisions,” extols Dusty Alexander, President and CEO, Global Shop Solutions.
Their flagship product, One- System ERP software system enables manufacturers to achieve accurate cost accounting and inventory control to substantially improve end results. It helps in tracking setup goals to lower costs and automates purchases leading to rapid flow of information and minimized cycle times. Further, the integrated flow of data throughout the software eliminates the need to manually input data. “Our ERP system stores information in a way that is accessible to anyone in the company,” explains Alexander.

Clients can select the combination of software that best suits their needs. Additionally, the ERP software integrates with CAD and other engineering programs that allow seamless flow of data in the ERP software. “We help implementing a CAD interface for the transfer of engineering documents and data to the ERP software to improve efficiency in processes,” elucidates Alexander. Its scheduling application helps manufacturing teams to estimate job costs through forward and backward scheduling. “Manufacturers can provide the software with a number of scenarios to find out the potential impact without making changes in the system.” It helps manufacturers get accurate costing and inventory, real-time material data from the shop floor to become more profitable.
Serving a number of esteemed clients, Global Shop Solutions has created its footprint in the fast-growing manufacturing sector. For instance, Idaho Correctional Industries (ICI), that provides work to prisoners in printing, furniture, and license plate manufacturing, had a number of databases for each department making it tedious to measure the performance of a particular area. The One-System ERP solution helped them get data on one dashboard for all the information in real-time enabling them to make informed decisions. “The solution gives a complete and accurate view of the company which not only saves our time but money too,” asserts Martin Thomas, GM, ICI.
Global Shop Solutions will continue to equip its clients with solutions to make each area more efficient and add significant amount of revenue to the bottom line. Offering a vast portfolio of software applications for smooth functioning of operations, the company helps its clients boost productivity and sales.
