Sheffield Forgings Manufacturer Improves Efficiency with Azzure IT

15th June 2015

A company which manufactures premium metal components for world leading organisations such as Rolls Royce, Siemens, BAe Systems and Airbus is improving efficiency across the business, thanks to innovative IT.

Independent Forgings and Alloys, based in Sheffield, enlisted the help of local expert Azzure IT to transform its operations with a fully customisable Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software solution. The Microsoft Dynamics NAV software provided by Azzure IT has streamlined Independent Forgings and Alloys' business processes across manufacturing, planning, purchasing and accounting, saving the company both time and money. The forging manufacturer operates from a four acre site and creates high specification components for global markets including aerospace, defence, energy and nuclear power. Daniel Rodgers, accountant at Independent Forgings and Alloys explains: -Our old system simply couldn't keep up with the speed of change within an advanced engineering environment like ours. We were having to enter information in duplicate onto various spreadsheets and use different systems for recording different processes. -The Microsoft Dynamics NAV solution provided by Azzure IT has changed all that. It allows business critical information to be shared and stored easily, and allowed our different departments to work collectively in much more efficient ways and brought everything together seamlessly. -Our business is a unique one, which requires the management of a high volume of technical information, worldwide deliveries and large quantities of metals varying from titanium to stainless steel to copper. Craig and the team at Azzure IT did a superb job in providing us with an ERP system that works to our own, specific needs. Craig Such, managing director at Sheffield-based Azzure IT, added: -Microsoft Dynamics Nav is the ideal solution for forward-thinking businesses like Independent Forgings and Alloys. Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software gives businesses greater control and increased information, meaning companies quickly start reaping the rewards, both financially and in time savings. We're looking forward to supporting the team at Independent Forgings and Alloys to ensure they get the best results from their new system. Azzure IT is the UK's leading provider of Microsoft Dynamics NAV software solutions and a Microsoft Gold Partner.
