COUNTERPART ETO ERP was recently profiled in Enterprise Technology Review. Industrial journalist, TR Cutler interviewed Andrew Schutte, GM of COUNTERPART discussed the projected growth trajectory of engineer-to-order manufacturing over the next five years. According to Schutte, rapid deployment of focused ERP technology solutions, like COUNTERPART will ensure the high profit margins which make manufacturers gravitate toward customization and meet the unique demands of customers.

According to Cutler, fifteen years ago (2005), approximately 25% of all North American manufacturers were ETO (Engineer-to-Order), yet very few knew it. They referred to themselves as custom manufacturers or manufacturers within a particular sector.
COUNTERPART automation technology empowers engineers with the knowledge whether a project is on-schedule and on-budget. Automation provides real-time visibility of potential problems or overruns which must be corrected before costs escalate. Only when project management and the ability to collect and report costs are automated, can the potential profitability be realized.

About COUNTERPART ETO ERP:
COUNTERPART is a full business operating software solution for engineer-to-order (ETO) manufacturers. COUNTERPART Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) significantly improves efficiency, visibility, and project management while reducing human error.
Unlike many ETO ERP solutions COUNTERPART is an engineering-centric solution. Most ERP systems are back-office accounting solutions and distracted by CRM and other operational functions. COUNTERPART ensures there are no features which detract from focusing on the BOM (Bill of Materials) to address the fast-changing engineering challenges of ETO manufacturers.
COUNTERPART enables manufacturing teams to access the information needed to do the job. By offering a bi-directional software solution integrated with SOLIDWORKS® to share real-time information with those who need it, engineers and purchasing have a non-stop and instantaneous job progress status report. These COUNTERPART elements allow ETO manufacturers to leverage the information to improve engineering efficiency.
According to COUNTERPART Sales Manager Todd Clevenger, “When ETO manufacturers improve visibility into project monitoring and focus on challenges and opportunities for improvement, best-in-class lean manufacturing is achieved.”
Clevenger also noted that the project management capability with COUNTERPART enhances teams’ efficiency by configuring the software solution to meet the work environment and specific engineering needs. Every job is assigned to the right team member prioritized by release date, lead times, due dates, and more. Every engineering-focused manufacturer will appreciate the critical functionality focus.”
