In today’s industry of makers, there’s often an invisible barrier that holds entrepreneurs back from taking the leap from concept to completion. With the right support at the right time, entry into manufacturing with the best and brightest ideas is much more cost-efficient with and open source ERP. Just ask one of the nation’s leading authorities on the subject, Chris Anderson, current CEO of a community-driven aerospace company, thought leader, and author.
In 2013, Chris, and partner Jordy Munoz, sought out Open Source Integrators to help this emerging drone manufacturer implement Open Source ERP to build and manage rapidly escalating company growth by providing superior integration of business processes. Because so much software is open source, tools like Open Source ERP are part of a growing trend—and becoming faster, flexible, integrated, and more cost-efficient.
The aerospace company was headquartered in San Diego while manufacturing took place in Tijuana, Mexico, where smart engineers and manufacturing systems were located. The company started small and organic, and was quickly taking shape as a 21st-century aerospace company pushing the boundaries. Chris felt the innovation model that worked so well with computers and the Internet could also apply to aerospace.
How does an emerging, and rapidly growing company get from “A” to “B” in a short span of time? First, Open Source Integrators did the work up front to get to know the company, understand its challenges and develop solutions, no matter how disparate their operational footprint.
Open Source Integrators began by getting to know the aerospace company, their needs, goals and objectives. OSI prioritizes communication that’s more than a business practice, it’s a culture, represented in their world-class ERP teams and industry best practices. That is why the starting point with the company was a one-week workshop, during which time they worked together to pencil out business processes and other logistics to quickly create a prototype/proof of concept. By the end of this week, together they had completed delivery of proof of concept. Over the next two-and-a-half months, Open Source Integrators was able to support further development of proof-of-concept system.
Open Source Integrators’ expertise delivered a targeted approach to identifying and designing best-of-class integrated Odoo business processes in these industries and with the following business solutions:
Open Source ERP helped to build the foundation for the aerospace company, OSI swiftly accomplished all goals and objectives with efficiency and speed, and met all established goals and objectives. The Open Source integrator built a prototype manufacturing ERP system that worked well with bilingual staff. A functional system helped enable the aerospace company’s growth and provided a foundational position that served as a starting point for their larger operations and explosive growth.
Open Source Integrators quantified, captured, and demonstrated the aerospace company’s business processes during a pivotal period of rapid expansion and growth for the company. Open Source Integrators did everything they had to do quickly and efficiently within two-and-a-half months from start to finish.
Taking maker ideas to the next stage of development in an efficient manner involves a powerful combination of outsourcing and Odoo.
