Tender Name: MRP System Development & Integration
Ref:  GH51107
Description of Services Required:

Filtration Services designs and manufactures industrial-scale, bulk filtration equipment for the chemical and process industries. The company operates on two distinct levels. On one level the company offers spares, consumables, equipment servicing and test work – all relatively low value orders. The other part of the business relates to high value capital equipment projects which take, typically, 2-3 years from concept to order placement and then six months to design, build, install and commission.

Filtration Services Ltd has a fragmented database system originally written in MS Access 2 (Windows 3.1) to log and track enquiries, sales, parts, drawings and equipment servicing. Purchase orders, invoices and delivery notes are produced using Excel. Sage is used for accounting. None of these ‘systems’ link up and remain independent. This means that data entry is repeated several times (e.g. addresses and parts information) which is not time efficient.

We are looking to introduce a new software system based on an MRP type platform which is tailored to our specific needs and are seeking specialist support to assist us with the development and implementation of the systems.

Our objectives are:

  • Single data entry for customers, suppliers, parts, drawings and equipment servicing;
  • Easy ‘lookup’ and search facilities;
  • Common format across the business;
  • Reduction (elimination) of the use of Excel for document creation;
  • Quickening of the order processing procedure;
  • Improved productivity and overall cost reduction;
  • Integrate (or replace) Sage accounting software.


Submission Deadline: 5pm on Thursday 18th April 2019
