Nanometrics Finds ERP Solution

By: Thomas Cutler

Nanometrics is a worldwide leader in the development of digital instrumentation and networks used for seismological and environmental studies. As an engineer-to-order (ETO) manufacturer, Nanometrics required an ERP with the ability to meet the complex needs of their high growth business. VISIBILITY.net by Visibility Corporation was an ideal choice - the only ERP solution developed specifically to meet the unique needs of manufacturers of complex products (To Order, ETO, ETM, Project Based, Hybrid) offering Nanometrics the following benefits:

&bullA "state of the art" architecture that remains unmatched in the industry - all other solutions use a mix of technologies, which are less adaptable, and require more support resources;
&bullETO functionality that was beyond other solutions, and that truly fit their business requirements;
&bullFlexibility in providing a choice of database platform (Oracle or SQLServer)
&bullIntegrated reporting boasting drill-through data accessibility and integrated business analytics.
Nanometrics will implement the full suite of VISIBILITY.net modules delivered using the power of .NET-based Web services.

Visibility Corporation and their Canadian business partner, Business Solutions Alliance Inc. (BSA), are pleased to announce that Nanometrics Seismological Instruments Inc, of Kanata Ontario, Canada has selected VISIBILITY.net as their Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution.

According to Ian Talbot, VP of Finance, "We undertook a rigorous evaluation of many ERP packages before choosing VISIBILITY.net. We wanted a package with modern architecture combined with extensive functionality. We evaluated many systems, but found most did not have the depth we required. VISIBILITY.net ERP was able to provide the depth of functionality and modern architecture required by Nanometrics."

To complement their ERP selection, Nanometrics chose an integrated implementation team consisting of Visibility consultants and BSA as their implementation and services partners. As experts in the fields of Manufacturing and ERP services, BSA is able to offer Nanometrics the local knowledge and skill necessary in not only installing and configuring their system, but also in ensuring that their manufacturing processes are strategically aligned with their direction.

Implementation of VISIBILITY.net at Nanometrics offices will begin in January 2007. The implementation team will include members from both Visibility and BSA.
