Is your ERP system missing the mark?

Arms Manufacturing ERP Software

Arms manufacturing remains  one of the most regulated industries in the world.  Failure to maintain compliance can have significant adverse  effects on operations, sales, revenues,  and profit margins. In some cases, non-compliance  can even result in administrative or criminal action.

To win, armament manufacturers must arm themselves,  with intelligent and sophisticated technology that meets arms manufacturing, government contracting, and cybersecurity requirements.

SolutionsX, a veteran-owned business, is an lnfor Gold Channel Partner. We have deep and extensive  expertise in securely integrating lnfor  ERP with other business and manufacturing software in discrete manufacturing companies. Our advanced integration process and prioritization of government projects ensures faster time to value and ensures compliance at every step.

Industry Specific Focused Solutions – “ArmorX with Orchid”

ArmorX is a purpose-built industry specific solution targeted for Arms Manufacturing to enhance lnfor CloudSuite lndustrial/Syteline.

Infor CloudSuite Industrial/Syteline capabilities for firearms manufacturing are robust, but there are some industry-specific features that are missing.  Things like ensuring that your customer base is properly licensed and legally able to purchase your products, and managing regulatory reporting requirements and associated overhead that comes with it.

ArmorX (with Orchid) powered by SolutionsX brings functionality directly into the ERP to address industry requirements.  Management of industry-specific data and related business processes provides assurance that you are adhering to regulations.  Direct integration to Orchid eBound services allows for efficient serial reporting.

No more worries of accidental shipments to restricted locations.  Manage where (and to whom) your products can ship.  Reduce the load on staff and eliminate human error in the reporting process by reporting serialized activity automatically using your existing Orchid eBound account.

  • Sales Restriction Capability – Rules-based restriction architecture to prevent items from being sold to ineligible customers.
