Previous to purchasing IQMS ERP, what system(s) did you use to manage your manufacturing operation?

Prior to working with Arisoft and IQMS, Spencer Butcher worked out of two systems: RT Systems WMS and a custom built internal solution. These two systems did not communicate with one another and made it very difficult to get a holistic view of their business from one view. It also required a lot of in house development work to maintain and manage these systems.

What problem/challenges were you trying to solve?

Spencer Butcher was facing problems with visibility of existing systems and data as well as not being able to scale quickly and efficiently as the business required them to do so. We were looking to implement one system throughout our locations and different aspects of the business to give a proper holistic view of the entire company, we also wanted to work with a dedicated and agile partner to work and scale with us and our business needs.

How did Arisoft address the challenges you mentioned above? What specific solutions did Arisoft bring to you?

We have been working with Arisoft for a couple months now, with Arisoft and IQMS we are able to plan for the future, scale our business, expand into additional facilities, save time on system maintenance and focus on our business. The team at Arisoft have been very flexible, agile, and able to help regardless of our ask.

Why have you chosen Arisoft as your business partner?

From the beginning of our consultation for a new platform Arisoft and IQMS stood above the rest, from the RFP process to finalizing the contract and implementation. Previously considered two major competitors. IQMS and Arisoft came out on top providing an in depth demo of the solution, were able to quickly simplify a lot of the current problems and workflows into something easily digestible for our entire team. The team at Arisoft was also able to instill confidence in our team from our first meeting to our current endeavours.
