About 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.

Key benefits of Fulcrum

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.

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!

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.

We've had great results that have make our company more profitable. Our turnaround times for customer orders have improved. Our visibility to the floor on what jobs are next has greatly diminished time wasted looking for the order. Our productivity and quality have both increased.

Pros

The Scheduler and JobTracker modules are excellent products. They integrate easily with our ERP system and are a key component of keeping our customers happy!

The software is robust and complete. There aren't any features missing. We love the flexibility of customizing things when our business needs change.
