Modular Flooring Manufacturer SnapLock Industries Invests in IQMS ERP to Streamline Operations
With IQMS, SnapLock aims to gain efficiencies in scheduling, inventory management, and other operations in its ISO 9001:2008 quality-certified manufacturing facility
PASO ROBLES, CALIF. – January 26, 2016 –IQMS, a leading manufacturing ERP softwareand manufacturing execution system (MES) authority, today announced that SnapLock Industries has selected IQMS’ flagship product, EnterpriseIQ. For nearly four decades, SnapLock has manufactured some of the world’s most innovative and premium brand modular flooring products. The company is implementing EnterpriseIQ to help modernize and streamline scheduling, inventory management, and other operations in its ISO 9001:2008 quality-certified manufacturing facility.
Headquartered in Utah, SnapLock is the parent company for leading global brands, such as RaceDeck® garage flooring, SnapSports® athletic surfaces, DuraGrid® matting, FastDeck® portable floors and SnapLock® dance floors. The business is recognized internationally for its highly diversified and innovative line of products, which are all built in the United States using SnapLock’s proprietary manufacturing processes–including green manufacturing and 24-plus patented technologies.
SnapLock’s modular products are manufactured using injection molding. With the recent expansion of its manufacturing facility and growing family of products, the company recognized the need to modernize the software it was using to support its injection molding operations. SnapLock first considered adding modules to its existing enterprise resource planning (ERP) system. However, the manufacturer realized that the limitations of this system, coupled with the current need for several workarounds, meant that adding modules would only increase the solution’s complexity.
SnapLock then conducted an extensive evaluation of leading ERP solutions that led the company to EnterpriseIQ from IQMS. SnapLock now has begun implementing EnterpriseIQ, which incorporates complete ERP, manufacturing, MES, and supply chain management capabilities into a single, integrated solution.
“We looked at many different software solutions, and IQMS stood out as the best fit for our company,” said Jamie Larson, assistant controller at SnapLock Industries. "We liked the fact that IQMS was created by an injection molder, and the demo we saw convinced us that IQMS understands the industry quite well. We are in the very early stages of implementation, and our hopes and expectations are very high for the potential we see in IQMS.”
