Cervoglass the leading conservatory roof glass manufacturer has recently invested in a new state-of-the-art computer software system to help improve efficiency and profitability at the firm.
The new system installed at the company has been developed over a 10 year period and provides a comprehensive roof panel library with a high quality graphical reporting facility for product quality assurance.
Senior management at Cervoglass considered it was imperative to update the software packages throughout the company in order to supply customers with the highest standards. The software package offers many benefits to production methods including the ability to batch one or more jobs at the same time with integrated manufacturing/cnc production information. It is now possible for the company to accept e-mailed orders from roof programmes.
The system eliminates the need to key-in panel geometry and can combine automatic shape optimisation with CAD manipulation. The programme automatically produces cut paths to cut shapes from stock sheets making it easy and effective to use.
The new computer system software at Cervoglass has already proven to be significantly faster than other traditional methods of industry data input and can generate considerable information on areas and weights of panels for both handling and transportation.
Every product element is listed which minimises the possibility of mistakes and disputes. The system was specifically tailored to meet the increase in demand for Cervoglass products since the launch of the new Cervo Activ and Cervo Sol Plus product ranges.
Graham Price, Managing Director, Cervoglass comments, “We consider this company is pro-active and that this IT investment is of paramount importance as it will play a vital role in supporting and sustaining our continued expansion programme.”
He concludes, “We can link with all parts of the company from sales through to the factory floor which reduces both errors as well as costs and helps us to optimise our production time.”
