The Client: Guthrie Machine Works

For Guthrie Machine Works, a sophisticated manufacturing software system is a must. Owned and operated by Chuck Perry, Guthrie is a leader in CNC manufacturing and screw machine products-and has been for over 40 years. Guthrie offers full machining services, including screw machining, CNC lathe, as well as CNC milling and broaching with heat treating and assembly capabilities. Because emphasis is placed on quality, consistent time delivery and strict adherence to customer specifications, Guthrie needs intelligent manufacturing software in order to run an efficient operation.

Why Did Guthrie Choose E2 Manufacturing Software?

In 2003, Guthrie's Machine Production Manager, Dan Parkhurst was looking for a way to modernize his shop. While his old DOS-based manufacturing software was working "okay," he knew that he could do better by increasing the speed and ease with which he could enter, process and ship his orders. To make these improvements, Dan chose to replace his outdated manufacturing software with our ERP software. Our ERP software offered quicker order entry and shipping functions, better tracking, as well as the ability to import data from his customers via the Internet.

The Results-So Far:

Dan Parkhurst has been very pleased with his manufacturing software. Quicker, more efficient order entry and shipping processes have saved him both time and money; and he can track shop operations much more accurately. His employees have found the manufacturing software easy to use, minimizing his start-up time. Shop reports generated by the ERP software have been a plus as well. Dan says that his reports are easier to generate and to understand, and he can determine exactly which reports he needs to run to monitor his operations.

"For anyone who has set up an MRP program, this was very intuitive and easy to set up and use."
