Solarsoft Drives 15% More Business for Lakeside Plastics

Toronto, Ontario (PR) January 23, 2012

Solarsoft Business Systems is a leading provider of enterprise software and IT services to manufacturers worldwide. Its Solarsofts ERP software and Mattec MES manufacturing execution system has helped Lakeside Plastics, a mid-sized Canadian plastic injection molder, earn automotive industry recognition and a 15 percent increase in business.

Solarsoft provides modern enterprise software and IT services to manufacturers, distributors and wholesale businesses in North America, Europe and Asia. The company has grown organically and through acquisition since 1986 and has worldwide revenues of US$ 100 million. Solarsoft employs more than 400 professionals providing local support across 16 time zones. More than 2,000 companies rely on Solarsoft to bring clarity and efficiency to their daily operations.

Faced with shipping errors, inventory accuracy issues and weak supply chain management, Lakeside implemented Solarsoft iVP to solve its issues and strengthen enterprise-wide control. Solarsoft iVP, an ERP system developed for discrete manufacturers in intensive supply chains, manages Lakesides financial operations, EDI, inventory, materials planning and order processing.

To add to Lakesides impressive results in automating the key points of its supply chain, such as improving its inventory accuracy, Lakeside implemented Solarsofts Mattec MES manufacturing execution system, which eliminates manual processes and provides real-time production monitoring and control. The system integrates with Solarsofts iVP ERP system to provide a clearer picture of operations on the shop floor and to enable more accurate planning and execution to meet customer demands.

Were now even better positioned as a trusted supplier that is willing and able to adapt to meet the ever-evolving needs of the industry and the automakers.
