VSMPO-Tirus US Selects Aptean Axis ERP to Align US Operations

Jan 12, 2016

Alpharetta, GA, January 12, 2016 — VSMPO-Tirus, U.S., which offers sales, distribution and service center processing for the world’s largest titanium manufacturer VSMPO-AVISMA, has selected Aptean Axis ERP to bring all of its U.S. operations onto the same software platform. VSMPO launched the first of their planned implementations of Axis ERP on August 1, 2015 and will complete the rollout to their other facilities in 2016.

VSMPO selected Axis ERP to increase accuracy and speed in their transactions while providing real-time material information to improve inventory turnover and control. The ability to track materials throughout the manufacturing and distribution process, “birth to shipment,” along with the usability and ease of implementation were key factors in VSMPO’s decision to choose Axis ERP.

“Axis ERP was designed specifically for the metal manufacturing and distribution industry, and this industry expertise meant we could be up and running on a new system with minor modifications, setting Aptean apart from the competition,” said VSMPO President, Michael Metz. “We are able to replace our outgrown legacy systems with a solution that can meet our current and future needs, while standardizing our ERP solution across the company. We are looking forward to achieving the same success we experienced with the first implementation as we bring additional facilities onto the Axis ERP system.”

“The Axis ERP solution has been meeting the specialized needs for the metals industry for more than 10 years. Aptean has effectively partnered with companies like VSMPO to solve near term-challenges and create an information technology infrastructure to support long-term success,” said Peter Weymouth, Axis ERP product manager. “Since the solution addresses the unique needs of VSMPO, they can realize a faster return on investment and better long-term business results than they would with a more generic ERP solution.”

Axis ERP software makes it possible for metals companies, and wire and cable manufacturers to manage their business operations using a common base of industry-specific information and business processes. Axis ERP contributes to the long-term success of companies by helping them:

  • Quickly develop, quote, and produce new products to exact customer expectations

  • Consistently deliver high-quality products while decreasing lead times

  • Reduce costs and improve profitability

  • Effectively manage complex business models, including distributed production facilities, multi-currency environments and the design and delivery of customized products to multiple customers

  • Efficiently manufacture products with low volume or high volume requirements

  • Put high-cost capital equipment to the best possible use
