The Bournemouth office of MRPeasy, which provides manufacturing resource planning (MRP) software to small companies, is celebrating after reaching 400 UK clients.

It said the milestone number underscored the "growing trust and reliance"1 of UK-based small manufacturers on its software solution.

"Reaching 400 active clients in the UK is not just a number for us; it represents the strong partnerships we have formed with UK manufacturers and our commitment to supporting the industry's evolving needs," said Sara Duff, UK business development manager at MRPeasy.

Founded a decade ago by a team of seasoned software engineers and ERP experts, MRPeasy helps small manufacturers grow with easy-to-use tools, which cover the essentials they need to manage their production and distribution.

It means they can level the playing field with larger competitors by accessing effective production management tools without unnecessary complexities, the firm said.

The 400 client milestone comes just one year after the company marked the 300 client milestone in the UK, demonstrating rapid growth.

Globally, MRPeasy services 1700 clients across 60 countries, with a strong presence in the UK, USA, Canada, and Australia.

And over the last year, MRPeasy has also made strides to further improve its platform, introducing the Master Production Schedule (MPS) and a B2B customer portal, as well as an innovative artificial intelligence (AI) Chatbot designed to assist with software implementation
and usage queries.

Recent surveys among MRPeasy users have highlighted significant improvements, with companies reporting an average a 54% increase in operational efficiency and a 39% rise in the rate of on-time deliveries after implementing the software

One client is Scottish chemical manufacturer Stakam. Managing director Alistair Watson said: "I feel like we struck gold with MRPeasy. It’s become such an asset that I often grapple between wanting to keep it as our secret weapon and the desire to showcase our robust systems, which have unlocked more flexibility to drive client acquisition."
