Fulcrum Overview

What is Fulcrum?

Fulcrum is a cloud-based enterprise resource planning (ERP), material requirements planning (MRP), and material execution system (MES) platform designed to help job shops, OEMs, contract manufacturers, and other made-to-order manufacturers with job scheduling, quotes, production tracking, inventory management, and quality control. The solution provides real-time data tracking for creating and adjusting production schedules.

Fulcrum uses machine learning to schedule jobs automatically with custom rules based on order details, production timelines, and workstation capacity. Managers can use visual job cards and the drag-and-drop tool to modify the production queue and perform what-if scenarios, which helps improve efficiency. The solution also sends current and upcoming capacity notifications to the sales team to ensure accurate delivery dates.

With Fulcrum’s real-time inventory and cost tracking tools, businesses can allocate materials, create accurate quotes, and ensure quality control. Users can upload and store all compliance and audit documents, pictures, and reports in a centralized database. The solution integrates with various third-party platforms such as Microsoft Dynamics, Quickbooks, Salesforce, Zoho, and more.

Amazing results from a discerning user, highly recommend!

We have installed a scheduling module that interfaces with our ERP (JobBOSS). It is much more functional than the scheduler offered with JobBOSS, and is very visual and deployed on a web browser. We also just completed a replacement of the shop floor interface that records punches to jobs, as well as capturing Quality data for our QMIS cube.

Sophisticated Software with Slight Learning Curve

My overall experience with Fulcrum has been mostly positive! There is a slight learning curve for the uninitiated but in my personal experience, the software is very easy use and navigate. Fulcrum has come a long way in the last three years, I'm excited for whats to come!

We have installed a scheduling module that interfaces with our ERP (JobBOSS). It is much more functional than the scheduler offered with JobBOSS, and is very visual and deployed on a web browser. We also just completed a replacement of the shop floor interface that records punches to jobs, as well as capturing Quality data for our QMIS cube.

Pros

1) Ease of use, 2) Ability to utilize within a web-interface/browser. 3) We get to 'own' the code - no annual fees, 4) Flexibility to change/adapt with business needs , 5) Customized for OUR needs, yet thoughtfully designed to make adoption very easy.

Cons

Fulcrum is my go-to vendor for modifications to our ERP. I don't have any feedback other than positive.

Response from Atlas Solutions

Thanks for the positive feedback!

Pros

What I like most about Fulcrum is the on-demand technical support. No matter how small or big the issue, I am always one email or IM away from receiving fast, direct support.

Cons

My only complaint about the software is the (occasionally) slow load times and the several workarounds needed due to software/invoicing limitations.

Response from Atlas Solutions

Thank you Satomi! We enjoy having you as a customer and look to continue making huge strides forward to improve the user experience

Benefits

Scheduling: Feel confident about your schedule in a world where due dates, rush orders, and last minute changes are becoming the norm. Whether you have a simple schedule that you drag and drop to rearrange or we work with you to deploy an automatic scheduler, using smart algorithms and modern intelligence technology, you can have clear visibility on the near term, and strong confidence on a schedule that will increase throughput and efficiency, and give you a competitive edge in performance.

Live Production Tracking: Paper gets lost, takes a long time to get entered, gets destroyed, and is not the interface of the future. Live data entry means live reporting means live decisions. Turn management into a collaborative experience, saving time and money before mistakes are made, managing with more than just a rear view mirror.

Design & Engineering: Taking drawings and making them into instructions, routings, bills of material, and tolerances is an incredibly important, creative, challenging, and fun job. Putting them into a software system usually isn't. Fulcrum feels like an extension of your brain, removing the friction between you and your software so you can focus on what you do best: using your considerable brainpower to come up with clever ideas for doing things better.

Purchasing: Fulcrum uses advanced planning tools to forecast demand and visualize capacity to do the heavy lifting, getting you as close to just-in-time inventory while protecting you from being blindsided by otherwise hidden peaks and valleys.

Security: Built with the highest security standards in place, with support from the leading cloud infrastructure providers, Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure. The data is secure from your shop to our servers. You own your data: we protect it, back it up and host it on the shoulders of giants.
