ECI Software Solutions Introduces ITAR Solution for Manufacturers

New secure, cloud-based platform assists in ITAR regulatory compliance for manufacturers who serve the U.S. government’s aerospace and defense needs

ECI Software Solutions, a leader in cloud-based business management solutions, today released M1 ITAR – a cloud-based platform for manufacturers who serve the U.S. government’s aerospace and defense needs to assist in maintaining compliance with the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR). Leveraging Microsoft Azure for U.S. Government and AWS GovCloud (U.S.), M1 ITAR helps manufacturers grow their business capabilities and maintain data in a secure cloud environment.

Today, there are approximately 13,000 defense companies, universities and research labs handling defense and military technologies, according to the U.S. Department of State Directorate of Defense Trade Controls. For manufacturers who produce items enumerated on the United States Munition List (USML), it is important that they have the tools necessary to build and maintain relationships with these defense organizations while ensuring they are offering secure and compliant services. With ECI’s M1 ITAR solution, manufacturers can do all of this in one cloud-enabled platform.

ECI’s M1 is an award-winning enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution built specifically for small- to medium-sized discrete manufacturers across various industries. For users who offer their products and services to the U.S. government, M1’s new ITAR solution will help avoid potentially costly and disruptive compliance failures. ECI will also offer services to help mitigate concerns with products, data and support. Current M1 users who operate on-premise can easily transfer their data to Microsoft Azure for U.S. Government and AWS GovCloud (U.S.) to this new secure platform.

“Our manufacturing solutions span so many industries, including aerospace and defense, so it's important that we continue to offer all our customers the tools necessary to operate and grow within the parameters of their industry,” said Matt Heerey, President of the Manufacturing Division at ECI. “Being able to maintain ITAR compliance within their ERP system will help manufacturers focus on delivering the best products and services.”
