Allied Vehicles invests in K8 Manufacturing

One of the UK's leading manufacturers and suppliers of adapted and special purpose vehicles invests in K8 manufacturing software from Datawright.

Datawright announces that Allied Vehicles have purchased a market leading K8 software system, including a fully integrated Shop Floor Data Capture solution. The system will bring wide-ranging benefits and help to ensure Allied Vehicles’ projected growth.

Allied Vehicles, based in Glasgow have signed with Datawright for a 55 user K8 system; 30 users will be utilising the Shop Floor Data Capture solution. The fully integrated system is used by many leading companies in the manufacturing and service management sectors. The installation of K8 Manufacturing will include comprehensive user training, consultancy and on-going system support.

The Allied Vehicles Group has grown consistently to become the UK's leading manufacturer and supplier of adapted and special purpose vehicles. Their new K8 Manufacturing system will provide a platform for managing additional growth and will provide Allied Vehicles with the future-proof flexibility for change and expansion.

An important element of Allied Vehicles’ ERP system requirements is quality assurance. Allied Vehicles’ managing director, Paul Nelson, commented “Every vehicle produced by Allied is subject to rigorous quality control procedures, backed by external testing and certification. When we made the decision to acquire a new ERP system, we reviewed all major providers. K8 was chosen as it offered the best capability to achieve the highest quality control standards. Using the latest technology, the Shop Floor Data Capture solution will also offer unparalleled visibility into our manufacturing and distribution processes, from goods receipt, right through to customer despatch”.

Datawright general manager, Andy Gough said, “We welcome Allied Vehicles to our ever-increasing customer list and we are pleased they chose a K8 manufacturing system for its strengths, compared with competitors’ products. Implementation has already begun and we look forward to working closely with the Allied Vehicles team to help them maximise the benefits from their K8 system.”
