Manuvis replaces inefficient, manual data gathering processes for manufacturers. Our FactoryMRI® software returns your investment 50% faster than our competition for three (3) primary reasons:
- Manuvis performs a thorough assessment of your needs as the project commences. We analyze your processes using Six Sigma methodologies such as capability analyses, Pareto charting, and performing other similar studies during the initial phase of the project. These services are included in our standard methodology. This step ensures your strategies and objectives are defined and drive the entire project.
- After initial benchmarks have been established our project leaders will help to develop the standard operating procedures, train your team to become self-reliant, and help your culture adapt to the pending changes.
- Immediately after you begin to manage your resources using the Manuvis tools your investment begins paying for itself.
The Manuvis team is comprised of seasoned manufacturing executives who have lived with vast sources of manufacturing problems and have developed a proven solution.
Manuvis believes software systems should begin paying for themselves immediately. That’s what our customers expect and exactly what we have delivered to them. Here is what our customers are saying: “FactoryMRI® allows us to improve our ability to service customers, and it helps our organization perform at a more profitable and efficient level”.

Manuvis is Unmatched at Helping Increase Your Profits
Today, more than ever, manufacturers must balance price and value, decrease the cost of goods sold, improve operational efficiencies, and deliver their products to market quickly, effectively, and profitably.
Without a greater quantity of accurate, real-time, shop floor information, decision-making is very risky. Manuvis provides the information missing from ERP systems. This puts you in greater control with up-to-the-moment knowledge. Manuvis provides the insight you need to much more efficiently manage capacity utilization, human capital management, machine performance, quality assurance and more.
Example: A machine breaks. Your manufacturing manager, because of his/her job experience, quickly decides to move the job to a different machine, but with no regard to resource constraints. The job can now be produced, but the job planned be running on this second machine is now delayed because of this unplanned change. This example is precisely where good-intentioned, but short-sighted, decisions crush your profitability.
Manuvis can ensure that your company’s manufacturing decisions are always made on up to the moment knowledge by the designated process owner(s).
We provide manufacturers proven tools to construct and sustain optimal operational performance improvement.
Manuvis Makes Your ERP Better by Ensuring ERP’s Data is Accurate and Up-to-Date for Greater Profitability!
Manuvis’ solution, FactoryMRI®, allows your company to transform ERP to always be in the present!
FactoryMRI®, has been designed and developed by a team of experienced manufacturing executives who needed a method to improve manufacturing operation’s data collection and availability processes.
This means key benefits such as updating job status, consuming raw materials, recording labor, and enabling visibility to important resources are possible. In other words, Manuvis replaces manual, error-prone data entry efforts by capturing data from live machine activity, and transforms this data into actionable information. Once ERP’s data is refreshed, it can be used to plan in the NOW, and even help protect the FUTURE—its intended role!
With Manuvis and ERP in synchronization:
- Inaccuracies and delays of posting production-related transactions will cease.
- Processes such as material allocations will now become timely and accurate.
- Profit losses resulting from job changes will be eliminated due to timely material availability visibility.
Manuvis removes the burden on your machine operators and other people to enter data. Operators should be concentrating on producing quality products, rather than data entry. Manuvis provides ongoing, instantaneous information from data it captures directly from your production machines or assembly processes.
Manuvis enables you to continually capture, calculate, display, store, and retrieve essential events that materially affect your profitability. Manuvis helps you to improve your customer relationships.
For example, customer ABC’s order is running behind due to an unplanned machine breakdown. If Manuvis software alerted your team to this situation when it first became a potential disaster, your leaders would be able to view the status of all manufacturing resources, re-route the job to a different machine capable of profitably producing the item, and not miss a beat.
Compare the above process to what is happening in your company today. Without Manuvis’ solution, several phone calls and/or pages would be placed, impromptu meetings held, and various people would review several ERP display screens before a course correction could be made. As a result of their decision your planning team must manually update ERP to reflect the change(s). More significant still, procedural short-cuts could be made, and ERP is completely bypassed, letting informal systems take over.
With Manuvis, your team would be alerted immediately if a machine breaks down or process stops. These alerts may be sent through a text page, a mobile phone, an email, or all of the above to one or multiple people. Once alerted, the responsible people can quickly assess the problem, determine the proper corrective actions, and immediately have Manuvis update ERP of the changes.
Your Team Will Be More Successful in Their Normal Jobs!
As experienced manufacturing executives, we recognize the fact that in most manufacturing companies people have limited time available to devote to tasks other than their primary jobs. That fact alone is at the center of our implementation methodology. A major improvement we deliver – establishing resources within FactoryMRI®, for example, can be measured in minutes, not hours. Once connected with your machines, Manuvis ensures that data begins to be captured and your team makes improvements!

Has ERP Delivered its Promised Value?
ERP relies on your team to “tell” it what has happened before it can perform its re-planning tasks. Therefore, YOU must constantly refresh its data to understand the impact of your decisions, if you want ERP to live in “now” . This is one of the key reasons ERP alone fails to deliver a positive ROI.
Consider this—ERP only provides a course of action AFTER you should have changed direction, not while you could have averted a disaster! Since ERP relies on input of what already happened, your plans will always be too late—they cannot take into account what is happening RIGHT NOW. This costs your company money and profits!
