EVS | Larger Boulder Office| Company Expansion

By: Thomas Cutler

Escape Velocity Systems (EVS) was formed in 2001 to combine specific industry knowledge related to process manufacturing, distribution, and ERP implementations with cutting edge software development. The company focus is to create tools that enable mid-market enterprises to achieve their goals, focusing on lean processes and ROI. According to President Evan Garber, "We expect about 50% staff growth for 2008 and that is on the back of our 100% growth in 2007. Since the entire staff at EVS is dedicated to our expanding client base, we wanted to bring the open range and vistas of the Rockies into our new facility. We realize that good ERP software is the hub of information in any process manufacturing enterprise. Timely, reliable, and centralized data are non-negotiable elements for businesses competing in the 21st century."

Few technology solutions were designed by industry sector experts within the process manufacturing arena and as a result many solutions do not focus on ROI; enterprise software should power businesses towards a Lean enterprise and that powerful technology drives long term ROI with customizable and flexible software. EVS expertise is process manufacturing specific and their team of experts understands the nuances of the lean process manufacturing enterprise.

Escape Velocity Systems (www.evs-sw.com) process (formula based) manufacturing software solution, O2 was designed by experts in the sector, which includes food and beverage, meat processing, chemicals, and health and personal care products. There are two basic categories of manufacturing software, discrete and process. Discrete manufacturing systems are generally designed around a bill of material containing whole, or discrete quantities of materials such as 1 axle, 2 tires, etc. Process manufacturing systems are driven by formulas such as 90% water, 5% flavoring, etc. Process manufacturers usually blend or mix materials rather than cutting, shaping, or assembling hard goods. Hybrid manufacturers combine process and discrete components. A good example would be a cosmetic company that mixes a batch of lip stick bulk and fills the bulk into a base container (process manufacturing), then assembles this into a finished product with a packaging and label bill of material (discrete manufacturing).

The term escape velocity refers to the speed that is necessary for an object to overcome gravity and soar into space. EVS provides direct applications for businesses looking for a catalyst, not just a software package. Process manufacturers require the best software solution coupled with industry experience that will accelerate the velocity with which they race towards their goals. The gravity of status-quo opposes aggressive, cutting edge organizations as they strive towards high quality and short lead time delivery while reducing inventories and operating costs. The new EVS Boulder offices are located at 2530 55th St., Suite 204, Boulder, CO 80301.
