Mike Anderson, Kaizen Promotion Officer
"Implementing the Odyssey ERP system gives us the ability to easily capture data – including crucial shop floor data - and utilize that data in ways we only used to dream of. I am already impressed with the data we are getting out of the system, and we have only been live for a short time. We are extremely happy with the Odyssey implementation and look forward to growing into more of the Odyssey features in the future."
Tom Forster, President
"We believed that moving to the SaaS model would deliver enhanced short-term and long-term efficiency, productivity and cost benefits. And I am happy to say Odyssey SaaS has done just that."
J.B. Brown, President
"Bremen Castings has had four or five ERP systems over the years. We took a hard stance and looked at what everyone had to offer. We chose Odyssey over the others because we needed to access information quickly without software modifications. With Odyssey, I can see what is happening on the shop floor, with customers, with financials - all in real time without having to call anyone or have someone do it for me."
Bob Willits, President
“We chose Odyssey because it is by far the industry standard software for all of the foundries and die casters. We wanted to partner with a company that understood the special requirements of our business, especially in regards to the tooling and maintenance that go along with the foundry. Odyssey can support all of the industry-specific requirements and challenges we face.”
Mary Klostermann, IT Coordinator
“The Cloud-based solution is perfect for our distributed business. We don’t have to worry about setting up hardware and software in each building or location, managing updates and backups. We are free of the tactical, day-to-day maintenance and all of the expenses and hidden costs of managing an infrastructure.”
Vice President - Technical Director
“With Odyssey, we have been able to better communicate process and customer requirements to personnel on the shop floor using Shop Floor Manager. Shop Floor Manager has also improved order traceability throughout our plant by having data entry for production operations, which provides us with real-time status of orders and more accurate information to pass onto our customers with regards to delivery of orders. These features reduce the amount of time required in finding the information, and give us more time to produce castings.”
Bob Boldt, Director of Production Control
"Prior to Odyssey we used spreadsheets to schedule and track production. Our information was disjointed and not real-time. Using the Odyssey Scheduling and Inventory module we get an immediate report of the shop floor at any time of day. We now better understand the effects of scrap and other critical factors to our bottom line."
Jim Kirsh, Chairman
"With Odyssey, we have complete traceability of every single thing in the foundry - from the melting of the iron to the shipping of the castings."
Ryan Morcombe, Controller
"Odyssey gives us the ability to control margins, ensuring we remain profitable across all our different types of products. We feel we haven't even begun to unlock the system's potential. We know there are so many more capabilities of Odyssey that will have a positive impact on our business as we grow and change moving ahead."
Sam Schlosser, President
"Foundries must have a deep understanding of their costs and have easy access to timely information. Odyssey gives us a deeper understanding of our costs and allows everyone, from the production lines to top management, to have real-time information available at any given moment."
Ethan Hamblen, Executive Vice President
For the first time, it truly feels like we are operating as a single company, and not four different plants.
