Devon-based software developer Lineal Software Solutions Ltd
has launched SQLWorks, a powerful Material Requirements Planning (MRP) software suite aimed at the UK manufacturing sector.
The platform is designed to help companies gauge future demand for products, purchase stock intelligently, and control manufacturing processes.
It has already been adopted by companies as far afield as Sydney, and Lineal has hired extra software developers to meet demand with the release of the lastest version of the software.
Mike Matthews, Lineal’s managing director, said: “This is a terrific new leap forward for our SQLWorks software. The new release is our most advanced version, and introduces powerful new manufacturing and logistical control to our existing business management tools.”
The software is also integrated to suite a wide-ranging set of other business applications, including accounting, stock and warehouse management, document management and CRM.
The software team knows the ability for industry to automatically complete important engineering tasks – such as importing newly designed assemblies (BoMs), capacity planning, updating part costs and forecasting future production - will prove a popular choice among UK manufacturers.
Mr Matthews continued: “Post-lockdown, many firms will be doing some serious soul-searching about whether their systems are really up to scratch. If you cannot innovate then you are at a dead end, and modernisation will be an important part of the UK’s economic recovery.”
One of last year’s Tech South West Award winners, Lineal recently featured on the Tech Tribe podcast to discuss the challenges of launching a new software product during Coronavirus, getting more women into tech, and the post-lockdown recovery.
He concluded: “Small and medium-size businesses need a provider who will ‘take ownership’ of their pain points, solve these, and deliver better business results.”
