MINNEAPOLIS, Minn.—KeyedIn® Solutions recently announced version 5 of its KeyedIn Manufacturing Cloud ERP software, which the company describes as a “dynamically configurable and extensible Cloud ERP software” with a “powerful production engine that puts the planning back into ERP for the modern production and fabricating manufacturer.”

“We recognize that ERP solutions are missing the key ingredients that production manufacturers need to achieve production control—which is their key to efficiency, profitability, and competitive advantage,” said KeyedIn CEO and Co-Founder Lauri Klaus, in a press release. “KeyedIn Manufacturing is a native Cloud ERP solution that transforms an organization with a powerful production engine that delivers real-time, comprehensive production control.”

Integration with other software systems is said to be easily enabled through open APIs (application program interfaces), resulting in greater visibility of priorities, easier access to decision-driving information, and the agility to instantly adjust to changes in demand. The new release includes capabilities to address needs across the production manufacturing enterprise, from the business and operations, to production and the supply chain.

KeyedIn says that it put the planning back into ERP with a powerful cloud-based production and manufacturing resource planning engine that provides real-time visibility of both supply and demand, so that priorities are clear and customer promise dates are achieved. The engine is designed specifically for the production and fabricating manufacturer, providing the manufacturer with a unique combination of computing power and speed.

The software’s unique platform gives manufacturers the ability to dynamically configure KeyedIn Manufacturing ERP to their environment, without the cost of coding and upgrade concerns of traditional customized software. This means that the business logic within the software can be configured to fit their unique process—a requirement not previously available to the production manufacturer, according to KeyedIn. This dynamic configurability also extends to the item masters, which are different in every facility and were, previously, a difficult-to-manage part of the manufacturer’s ERP software. This adaptation to the uniqueness of the production manufacturer’s business process makes the software more user-friendly, subsequently improving user adoption within the organization.

KeyedIn Manufacturing Cloud ERP is also said to easily integrate with other software systems with open APIs to become the single source for accurate data and information for the enterprise. This also extends to the Internet of Things (IoT), in that the flow of data can be exchanged across devices, systems, and software. The primary benefit to the production manufacturer is a single source of the truth for all their critical business data, eliminating the inefficiency and opportunity for error of re-entry.

KeyedIn Manufacturing also partners with the data security provider, Dimension Data, a $6.7 billion company that reportedly serves the majority of Fortune 100 and Fortune 500 companies around the globe, and whose core competency is protecting data. This is said to be “a vast improvement for manufacturers large and small,” who otherwise may face security risks with outdated processes and servers within their facilities.

“We worked with our KeyedIn Manufacturing Customer Advisory Board and put powerful manufacturing resource planning tools into this release of KeyedIn Manufacturing ERP,” said Kevin Hurley, executive vice president of technology for KeyedIn, in the release. “With KeyedIn Manufacturing Cloud ERP, manufacturers can run and visualize the Production Planning Board with the outstanding computing power enabled by the Cloud. In turn, they gain comprehensive visibility into supply and demand and progress towards on-time delivery.”
