JOBSCOPE ERP Software a Perfect Fit for Modular Building Manufacturer
The McAvoy Group is Northern Ireland’s largest portable building manufacturer with a customer base extending to the United Kingdom and Europe. Jackleg cabins are available in a variety of sizes, and can be fitted-out for ticket kiosks, offices, temporary kitchens and toilet units.
Anti-vandal units are designed with security in mind, to provide offices, stores, toilets and sports changing units, they are available in a range of colors and sizes.
Modular buildings are available as a large re-locatable facility for laboratories, classrooms, hospital wards, kitchens, canteens, office complexes, training centers and community halls.
The McAvoy Group is one of the leading forces in the design, manufacture and erection of prefabricated, modular timber and steel-framed modular buildings throughout the UK and Ireland. The Group’s commitment to developing its international market has been recognized with the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International trade.
In addition to its manufacturing operation in Dungannon, Northern Ireland, the company recently established a new manufacturing plant in Lisburn, also in Northern Ireland. The investment in the site in excess of £5 million was backed by the local business investment body, Invest NI and supported through the Northern Ireland Technology Centre at Queen’s University. This site is being used exclusively for the manufacture of the McAvoy SafeSpace Anti-Vandal product range, a particularly strong and fast-growing market for the company.
“McAvoy realized early on that it required a flexible and fully integrated erp software package for the new premises,” said Adrian Walsh, e-Business Manager for the McAvoy Group. “This was both to ensure full advantage was made of the “fresh-start” opportunity it had at Lisburn and to ensure that all business processes were handled in the most cost-effective and efficient way possible.”
McAvoy invited 12 companies to tender for this prestigious contract and the list was reduced to two potential suppliers. Both companies made full presentations to the McAvoy Group’s senior management team and their decision was to award the contract to Jobscope and its UK implementation partner In2grate Business Solutions.
McAvoy became aware of the scope of joined-up functionality offered by Jobscope manufacturing ERP software – everything from cost estimation and design through to material requirements planning, manufacturing, shop floor scheduling and shipping. In particular BOM configuration control was something that McAvoy knew would benefit the company in a major way. It would quickly determine lead times, accurately cost and action projects thus providing rapid feedback to the customer.
Jobscope ERP software has been recognized by the McAvoy Group as a comprehensive engineer-to-order solution and as such the optimum solution for the company’s needs at both of its plants. As orders for the McAvoy SafeSpace product continue to grow, Jobscope Enterprise Edition, with its wide ranging and totally integrated functionality, will encompass everything from sales estimates to production scheduling and delivery. It will enhance the efficiency of every department from sales through to design, manufacture and shipping.
Recent successes for the McAvoy Group include:
- A multi-million euro contract to provide modular buildings for the development of Terminal 2 at Dublin Airport
- The biggest steel-framed sectional building in Northern Ireland – a 25,000 sq ft two-story building for the Department of Environment Northern Ireland
