Vantage sees the advantage of Solarsoft

Vantage Industries, the manufacturer of coated fabrics, has purchased Solarsoft’s iVP ERP software to manage its inventory, purchase order processes and supply chain.

The system will also provide the company with remote access, EDI integration with suppliers and the ability to manage all inbound and outbound deliveries.

Vantage Industries became an independent company in August 2009, before which it was a subsidiary of Leggett and Platt, the manufacturer of engineered products.

Bob Waddell, vice president of Vantage Industries, said: “After we established ourselves as an independent company, we needed to construct our own infrastructure from the ground up and unite the various business functions. Solarsoft iVP will be the lifeblood of our business and the stability, security and high levels of support that come with it allow us to have complete confidence in our business processes.

“It is intended that Solarsoft iVP will manage our entire business from end-to-end – from the 50 plus sales staff in the field having instant and secure remote access to the CRM system and quoting module, to the incoming purchase orders and EDI being balanced with our stock inventory and supply chain, right through to the picking and packaging of the outbound deliveries.”
