The Client & Requirements
An EFACS customer for almost a decade, Mini Gears are keen to capitalise on the Document Management and Workflow capabilities of the latest version, EFACS E/8.
Established over 40 years ago, Mini Gears is one of the UK’s largest and most respected manufacturers and suppliers of transmission and machined components. Drawing on its vast engineering experience and a comprehensive global supplier base, the £8m turnover company can either manufacturer high quality precision parts at its UK manufacturing site, or for high volume customers requiring substantial cost reduction, source these from a wide variety of trusted overseas suppliers.
For 9 years now EFACS has been a key element in managing the company’s machine shop of over 40 resources including the latest 5 axis CNC one hit turning/milling machines. The Document Management and Workflow technologies in EFACS E/8 provided the primary upgrade motivation from 8.2, with the company also keen to make use of and benefit from EFACS’ Time & Attendance functionality.
