Lancashire based plastic card manufacturer Nitecrest is implementing a Tharstern MIS to help streamline its workflows and increase productivity.
Nitecrest has over 25 years’ experience in the plastic card industry and produces over five million cards daily, exporting to over 140 countries worldwide.
One of the reasons the company decided to look for a new MIS was the lack of responsiveness within its previous MIS. Once Tharstern is fully implemented, the estimating team will be able to use a more responsive system to eradicate needless repetition – meaning they can focus on more business critical tasks.
Nitecrest researched many different MIS providers, but it was Tharstern that stood out and the company received great feedback from other printers who use the same MIS.
‘We are excited about how Tharstern will help to ensure we are working in the most efficient and productive manner as part of our 5s Lean management programme,’ said Lee Moran, customer services manager, Nitecrest.
‘We were very impressed with how structured and professional our Tharstern customer experience was throughout the whole process, from initial contact, to discovery visit, to various other meetings discussing the potential implementation, it was relaxed but very productive.’
The visibility of projects and milestones in one place, instead of using different packages, will increase interdepartmental communication and speed up the process from estimating through to final production.
