Odyssey Empowers North American Metalcasters


Bridgman, Michigan, July 5, 2017 – B&L Information Systems, global leader in ERP software for metalcasters, is proud to announce additions to the Odyssey family of customers, both in installed customers and new signings to the Odyssey ERP software system.

In Q2 2017, B&L Information Systems’ Professional Services Department brought six additional customers across North America online with initial implementation of Odyssey ERP software: ADC Die Casting of Elk Grove Village, Illinois; Aero Metals Inc. of La Porte, Indiana;  Canada Alloy Castings Company of Kitchener, Ontario; Lemfco, Inc. of Galena, Illinois; Littlestown Foundry, Inc. of Littlestown, Pennsylvania; Metal Technologies, Inc – Three Rivers Gray Iron of Three Rivers, Michigan;   Pace Industries LLC. – Airo Division of Loyalhanna, Pennsylvania; and Twin City Die Casting Company of Minneapolis, Minnesota.  Additionally, Progressive Foundry of Perry, Iowa chose to supplement their Odyssey ERP use with the financial module of Odyssey in an accelerated three day on-site implementation. 

New customer signings in the second quarter of 2017 included new customers from both the iron and steel sectors of metalcasting: iron foundry, Dalton Foundry of Warsaw, Indiana and steel foundry Quality Electric Steel Castings of Houston, Texas. Each company selected B&L from among ERP providers due to B&L’s deep knowledge of and commitment to the metalcasting industry.  

Patrick McCrevan"Today’s business moves at the speed of information – access to real-time data and having everyone working from the same set of information is the difference between success and failure.  An ERP system gives businesses that edge,” said Patrick McCrevan, Account Executive for Odyssey. “Built-in business data access and metalcasting industry specific touches are the hallmark of Odyssey ERP.”

As the U.S. continues to reclaim manufacturing momentum, B&L Information Systems is proud to have equipped nine more North American metalcasters to make better informed decisions through the Odyssey ERP system in the second quarter of 2017.

"Before Odyssey we used a paper-based system to present work instructions and to collect information. Much of our time was spent managing this blizzard of paperwork and determining what job to run next. In Odyssey, the ability to present any information to the shop floor without custom programming is worth its weight in gold. We have increased our information accuracy and management has gained access to the correct information faster."
