Why Fulcrum Manufacturing?
Different from the ground up.
New technology to support a new resurgence of manufacturing growth. Moving faster requires more data, better automation supported by a new modern platform.
Pay per User
Every time you add an employee or a user, there's a cost. Making you wince and make a financial decision every time you grow, expand, or connect.
"Get out of the system so I can get in!"
Data is power. We'll do everything we can do to make it frictionless for everyone in your organization to be connected.
Buy a server. Buy an operating system. Buy a database. Upgrade the server. Pay for IT support. Patch everything. Do it again every 5 years.
"Didn't we just do this?"
Secure, ITAR compliant, quickly deployed, no servers to buy or set up, no need to maintain it yourself. It just works.
Designed to be easy to sell, not easy to use. Dashboards that were sold, but don't work, because the data entry is difficult and touchy. Garbage in, garbage out.
"Remember not to touch anything while it's working..."
Software that empowers you the way your machines and tools empower you. When everyone loves using the system, you'll be able to leverage better data for better results.
Isolationist business strategies that put doing what's right for the customer in the backseat.
"I spend my day entering data into 5 different systems."
We play nice in the sandbox. You get the best software you need all talking to each other, seamlessly.
Outsourced customer service
Indirect ticketing systems handled by entry level staff, requiring escalation to gain access to actual engineers. Outsourced customer service.
"Just let me talk to someone who can actually help me!"
Support is handled by developers, project managers, and product managers who will respond to your emails and phone calls directly.
Expensive customization. Everything breaks when updates come through. You change your business process to fit the software. You do your important stuff outside of the system and double enter it back in.
"It's going to cost $10,000 to add a button!?"
Every business is unique. If there is a business process that makes you valuable and gives you an edge, we can easily fold it into our system.
Memorized steps on how to get from place to place. Confusing layouts that only make sense after years of pain. Training comes in the form of mystic rituals.
"Sometimes after lunch I fall asleep after staring at the software for too long"
Experience what it feels like to finally be as excited and delighted to use your business software as you are to watch cat videos or shoot birds at pigs on your phone.
Different shades of lipstick on the same pig. Changing the colors of the interface doesn't change the fact that these legacy systems were architected in the 1980s and duct taped for the last 30 years.
"There just HAS to be something better out there!"
Every time new technology has come to manufacturing, those who adopt it early are rewarded. Any sufficiently new technology feels like magic. We deliver that magic year after year.
