As the largest fully integrated process equipment company in the oil and gas industry, NATCO is recognized as the leader in oil and natural gas process technology. NATCO has three project manufacturing facilities and over forty locations worldwide. Over the past few years, NATCO has grown by acquiring several project based manufacturing companies that fit their core offerings. They are continually in acquisition mode.
NATCO has been utilizing JOBSCOPE project based ERP software and MRP software since 1989. NATCO’s corporate Information Systems department located in Houston, Texas, has been very aggressive in taking advantage of the functionality available in Jobscope project based manufacturing software. All of their remote locations access JOBSCOPE via a MCI Frame Relay Wide Area Network (WAN) or through the internet. Internet connectivity is being accomplished via dialup, DSL, cable modem, wireless and a dedicated UUNET connection to the internet. They have deployed Virtual Private Network (VPN) for more than half their remote locations to provide remote internet access. They will continue to embrace internet-based technologies to reduce data and voice communications cost.
NATCO’s Jobscope project based ERP software supports over 150 concurrent users, and is utilized in a multi-national environment. Like many project based manufacturing companies NATCO has customized reporting to address NATCO specific project manufacturing business requirements unique to NATCO. During the implementation of Jobscope project erp software NATCO was able to eliminate the majority of the custom stand-alone systems they had developed around their legacy ERP manufacturing software. When NATCO implemented their Canadian facility in May of 1999, they were able to implement standard JOBSCOPE without any modifications. Other than some enhanced reporting that was copied from the US production side to the Canadian side, it is standard JOBSCOPE.
Jobscope users form a worldwide community of project based ERP software users that actively works together to help each other move their companies forward. They learn from each other what “best practices” have been implemented along with unique ways of implementing the latest technologies. NATCO has been an active member and participant in Jobscope’s Project ERP User’s Group for over 10 years.
