We team up with manufacturing companies—and deliver success.

A plastic processor chose FMT to automate their end-to-end sales process—from lead to invoice—using Dynamics CRM and Dynamics GP. Dynamics GP holds all of the product records and sends information over to CRM, which lets users create quotes. CRM holds the quotation approval process, in which a quote is converted to order, and then integrated with GP for fulfillment.

A beer manufacturer improved internal communication when FMT implemented SharePoint and provided them with a single platform for secure document management and communication. The intranet portal has been critical to their growth and maintaining their tight-knit culture; it even lets employees order their personal beer.

A worldwide skincare manufacturer outgrew Quickbooks and looked to FMT for a unified business platform. Since they needed one that’s easily accessible for all locations and facets of their business, NetSuite was the solution. With product launch dates fast approaching, a rapid implementation cycle required FMT to deploy components of NetSuite at top speed and with maximum efficiency. These components let the manufacturer procure and track raw materials, issue them to the manufacturing line, and produce the finished goods in time for forecasted launch and distribution.

An international connection system manufacturer had the FMT team implement Dynamics CRM so they could capture and close leads from their website. Based on predefined territory and association, the CRM system distributes inbound leads to salespeople and product experts. Then, CRM is used to generate quotes that sync with the company’s ERP system. Orders are created and fulfilled in the ERP system, yet they’re linked to CRM via system integration.
