Best Of British Production Control Software

Do British subcontract precision engineering businesses need software designed and supported in Britain?

One important factor to consider is that production style and manner varies between countries. Legislative and commercial factors must be considered to ensure that the business-critical system in place is able to react and respond to constantly evolving industry requirements. A system designed in, and focussed on, British Manufacturing will do just that.

PSL Datatrack is a production control software system designed, developed and supported in Britain, from our offices in Bracknell, Berkshire. The system is continuously enhanced with the needs of the British Manufacturing industry in mind. With over 30 years of experience since our establishment in 1988, this is an industry we know, understand and are passionate about supporting.

System development incorporates Wishlist requests submitted by our customers – British subcontract precision engineers. These are typically small owner-managed machine shops to medium-sized manufacturing business, producing turned parts and machined components. The system is also suitable for and utilised by companies in areas including fabrication, product assembly, PCBs and box build.

We are able to support customers with our knowledge of the industry, coupled with our understanding of what they do on a daily basis. We take the time at the outset to get to know a new customer’s business so we can ensure that the software package provided includes only the relevant modules and configuration to get them off to the best possible start.

Additional modules and features can then be added as and when needed; as a business grows or requirements change. PSL Datatrack support is on hand to assist with any queries and to provide training on any new functionality. Another benefit of British software for a British manufacturer is that there are no time zone issues – we offer 09:00 – 17:00 support, Monday to Friday.

We are longstanding members of the BTMA (British Turned Parts Manufacturers Association) and the GTMA (Gauge and Toolmakers’ Association). These British trade associations recognise that production control systems such as PSL Datatrack are a necessary part of maintaining the very high standards of administration and customer service required by subcontractors in today’s marketplace.

We are pleased to announce that we have also recently been accepted as a member of Made in Britain which brings together the British manufacturing community, united with the use of the registered collective mark. The mark is protected and can only be used by members of Made in Britain that meet the criteria. This mark guarantees our status as a British production control software provider.

Our focus has always been on our customers and how we can help them get the most from their investment in PSL Datatrack. We are proud to support British Manufacturing and want to support your business too! Contact us today to find out more about how we can tailor a system to help you manage your company.
