TRM Group on course for success with new K8 Manufacturing system

Datawright announces that TRM Group, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of mineral insulated cables, has gone live with its new, 25 user K8 manufacturing system.

A fully integrated suite, encompassing stock control, production, sales, CRM and accounting applications, K8 Manufacturing was chosen by TRM Group for its functionally-rich manufacturing capabilities and to support the company’s complex operational requirements. K8 Manufacturing will also serve as a platform for future growth and development.

TRM Group Senior Production Planner and Buyer MICC Ltd Jason Shek said, “Our previous system could no longer cope with our growing demands and had reached its end of life - we had to become more customer focussed.  We needed a fully integrated system that could cut out the need for us to duplicate effort, provide us with much faster production planning capability and enable everyone to have accurate, up-to-date stock information. We also required a system that could give us full traceability of every product which, in some cases, is a mandatory requirement for our customers.”

As part of the TRM Group implementation, Datawright also installed a comprehensive product configurator application to support the sales team and make it easier for the company to manage its bespoke orders.

Prior to making the decision to implement K8, Datawright worked closely with TRM Group to ensure that the system’s capabilities were a close match for its business processes. And in looking to partner with a company that offered long term investment security and a strong customer partnership ethos, TRM Group were also impressed with Datawright’s R&D roadmap and support services.     

Datawright Commercial Director, Ian Farrar said, “From the outset, we recognised that TRM Group was going through a significant and exciting growth phase. Clearly, they needed a new scalable system, that would not only address their immediate requirements, but also enable them to ‘future proof’ their IT capabilities. We are delighted that TRM Group have now implemented K8 and look forward to a successful, long term association with such a fast moving business.”
