Contact: Andy White, Managing Director
DCV’s Managing Director has already recommended Fitfactory to other companies due to its ability to increase efficiency and speed up processes.
As a business with over 40 years, DCV Precision had a great reputation for supplying end-to-end precision engineering solutions. However, as Managing Director Andy White began ambitious plans to grow the business, he knew he needed a system to help. By working with Fitfactory and building their MRP system one modules at a time, they’ve increased efficiency allowing them to grow their business. And now, they encourage others to do the same.
DCV Precision Engineering has been supplying precision engineering solutions for 40 years.
Based in Aldershot, their 12-person strong team provide a complete precision engineering solution, from prototype to production. Additionally, they operate a network of local businesses, including grinding, heat treatment, welding, fabrication and metal finishing.
This enables DCV to offer a diverse and comprehensive service to a range of sectors including: Aerospace, Undersea Exploration, Oil Exploration, Geophysical Equipment, Formula One and Waste Management Equipment customers.
Andy White, Managing Director said, “We met the Fitfactory team at an engineering show and asked them to visit us to discuss their software applications further.”
When Fitfactory met with DCV at their offices, the management team there quickly realised that the Fitfactory system was exactly what the company needed – giving them the flexibility to manage their business while reducing admin tasks and paperwork. They decided that working with Fitfactory would be a major step forward towards their goals.
Implementing the System
Implementing the system was a smooth and easy process to transition from the existing excel based system to the Fitfactory: Tricorn system. And the training was quickly picked up by the team, as Andy explains “I was especially delighted with the detailed in-house two-day training. And their supportive and rapid response to all of our queries and questions. I felt that there was always someone there and that they care deeply about their customers’ needs.”
Impact on Business
Following implementation of the system, DCV are already experiencing the benefits, as Andy explains, “Fitfactory’s software has sped up many aspects of our business processes, increasing efficiency.”
By providing a system that’s ideal for precision engineers, Fitfactory: Tricorn streamlines manufacturing operations from quotation to invoice, making it easier to manage. Andy continues “Information is now all in the right place and I am delighted with the outcome. I have already recommended Fitfactory to other companies.”
Following the initial installation of Fitfactory: Tricorn, DCV Precision have continued with the growth plans, increasing capacity with additional machines and growing their workforce. Additionally, the business has further digitalised their factory, integrating Fitfactory’s Shop Floor Data Capture, Planning Board, and Dashboard modules to support their continued growth.
