Seamless production starts the moment material hits the loading dock.
No matter how custom, every job requires raw materials and routing steps. By digitalizing the BOM and routing, Fulcrum builds a connection between your inventory, schedule, and purchasing so you can be positive you have what you need for your most important jobs.
Never lose track of material once it arrives in your shop again with built-in barcode scanning that works throughout Fulcrum. Organization becomes easier and WIP inventory decreases when you know what has arrived and what job it's going to.
As production begins on your raw materials the value increases. Tracking work-in-progress (WIP) inventory, and understanding the valuation affects your cost of goods sold, gross profit, current assets and working capital. Knowing these costs gives your business more control and financial freedom.
When inventory is constantly moved and stored in different locations, it can be difficult to locate items. Fulcrum natively integrates with label printers and barcode scanners to easily label and identify materials.
Recording inventory in spreadsheets and other disconnected systems prevents businesses of accurately viewing inventory in real time, which impacts purchasing and production. Fulcrum utilizes barcode scanners so both office staff and floor personnel know exactly what is available.
Many certifications require businesses to track material origin, and keep a running list of the material used for different orders. Fulcrum understands lot control and has traceability functionality to quickly identify materiality.
Some job shops and OEMs claim that BOMs and routings must be manual due to the variability of jobs coming through the shop. Fulcrum utilizes an intuitive BOM and routing builder to easily digitize this information leading to improved production timelines and accurate inventory counts.
You took our whole workflow and made it so simple. I can't tell you how happy I am.
I've never worked at any other company that had software as good as this.
It's actually quite spooky that there are no workarounds in this system.
