Fort Worth, TX — Tuesday, July 13, 2010: ECi Software Solutions (ECi), a leader in industry-specific information technology solutions, announced today that Fluoresco Lighting & Signs will implement ECi’s M1 manufacturing ERP software in all of its facilities. Fluoresco is one of the acknowledged leaders in the design, manufacture, installation and retrofitting of lighting systems and electrical signs.
“We are excited to expand our partnership with Fluoresco,” says Mike Gibson, Senior Vice President of Global Marketing and Sales for ECi. “Through leveraging the strength and efficiencies of ECi’s M1 solution, it’s allowed Fluoresco to continue its strong growth. Fluoresco will be able to integrate all its locations seamlessly onto M1 with little business disruption. M1 continues to prove its ability to scale with our valued customers as they grow from start-ups to manufacturing companies to large multi-national operations.”
ECi M1 is an enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution, providing total integration and automation from quoting through invoicing. It is specifically designed for manufacturers of all sizes and complexities to help improve processes which will save time, resources and money. One of the most important things for a manufacturer is the ability to give customers accurate cost estimates. M1 helps them do this, while driving efficiencies into the entire business.
“M1 will work well for Fluoresco,” says Chuck Finzer, Fluoresco’s Chief Operating Officer. “The wide range of operational modules provided by the software will allow for a smooth flow of data between the departments. This smooth flow will allow for a true exchange of data and will provide accurate snapshots of the company on a daily basis. The software will eliminate numerous man-hours on a daily basis while providing accurate data for decision making at every level of the company. We anticipate an efficiency increase of around 20% just by implementing the product, in comparison to our current mode of operation.”
