In July the button was pressed that switched the IT functions of Astropol over to a new ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) system.

This exciting development was only possible after a two-year gruelling evaluation, tendering, scoping and implementation process that involved all departments and everyone in the business. The successful application of this resource is part of the commitment of the company to LEAN principles – a key aspect of which is giving value (in all senses of the word) to the customer. The ERP system provides coordinated data across the business from production to sales and marketing (CRM), and is an integral step on our journey to industry Manufacturing 4.0.
