Prism Electronics has implemented enterprise software to manage its manufacturing, financial and distribution systems. The aim is to streamline its design-to-manufacture process and bring  products to market more quickly.

The Cambridgeshire-based firm manufactures complex electronic components, such as printed circuit boards. Much of its business comes from the region's large number of specialist high-tech organisations.

The Syspro ERP system has integrated all of Prism's core business functions, including stock control, manufacturing and accounts. The company is now looking to use the system's ability to implement engineering change control.

Richard Vyse, Prism's financial director, said the ERP system should also improve the company's material requirements planning by enabling materials audits to be run more frequently and in a more flexible way.

The Syspro software, which is designed for small and medium-sized enterprises, replaces a Dos-based system which Prism had used for more than 10 years.

Prism has a Novell network and a C-Isam database, which Vyse said was "fairly untypical". The firm runs Windows XP on its desktops, and the Syspro software integrates with applications such as Microsoft Office.
