Why choose M1 for your manufacturing business?
ECi M1 software is an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution designed for manufacturers. Our customers include make-to-order, engineer-to-order, make-to-stock, custom and mixed-mode manufacturers. M1 automates and integrates every business process from quoting through to full management accounts. It is also flexible and easy to customise, so it can handle the most valuable and unique business processes with ease.
More than 1,000 manufacturing locations worldwide rely on M1
ECi is dedicated to helping manufacturers overcome the challenges of new technologies, market governance, compliance mandates, labour shortages, and economic cycles. For more than 15 years, M1 ERP solution has met the rapidly changing needs of our customers by focusing on their entire sales, production, and financial processes. M1 targets operational inefficiencies, controls job costs, and maximises the contribution of company resources. Just as important, M1 is designed to fit your business model and processes—not force your business to fit the software.
M1 delivers on the 5 mandates of growing manufacturers
- Better business decision making and cost controls
- Significant productivity and efficiency improvements
- Company-wide increases in the profitability of investments
- Substantial reductions in inter-departmental miscommunications
- Greater short-term customer satisfaction and long-term loyalty
Choosing the right ERP is the one decision that can empower a manufacturer to achieve all of these objectives. To do this requires real-time inventory, costing, operations, and financial data, and applications to simplify your processes, all in one fully integrated ERP solution. Data flows into your software from the initial stages of every project, all the way through delivery. At every step of the way, ECi M1 streamlines your business to create significant and lasting competitive advantages.
M1 under the hood
M1 is written in .NET C#, a powerful graphical development environment, utilising industry standard Microsoft SQL Server. This ERP is easy to learn, run, and maintain, and will provide real value to your organisation, from the executive level down.
Modular design supports your growth
M1 is built for growing manufacturers. No matter what your size, we’ve got a business management solution to scale with your operational needs and budget today, and to grow with your business tomorrow.
ECi has made this degree of scalability possible with a comprehensive modular system built around the “core” M1 Production Module. Each module is focused on a different aspect of a typical manufacturing operation. Like Lego® blocks, you can “snap” M1 modules to the core module as your evolution demands the efficiencies of M1 automation and integration.
