Transform Manufacturing with Digital Solutions


In today’s fast-paced manufacturing landscape, staying competitive requires more than just efficiency—it demands agility, accuracy, and innovation. As the backbone of manufacturing operations, a business management system plays a pivotal role in streamlining processes, optimising resource allocation and driving growth. At Herbst Software, we understand the unique challenges faced by manufacturers in their daily operations and are committed to empowering them with off the shelf, customisable solutions that will revolutionise their business processes.


The Importance of a Fully Integrated System:

In manufacturing, every aspect of the production process is interconnected. From job costing and production planning to stock management, traceability and quality control, seamless integration is paramount for achieving operational excellence. A fully integrated business management system like Herbst’s eliminates silos, allowing data to flow seamlessly across departments in real-time. This not only enhances collaboration and communication but also provides decision-makers with accurate, up-to-date information to drive strategic initiatives.


Digitising Your Manufacturing Processes

Gone are the days of manual record-keeping and paper-based processes. In today’s digital age, manufacturers must embrace technology to remain competitive. Digitising your manufacturing processes not only improves efficiency but also enhances visibility, traceability, and compliance. Herbst business management solutions offer a fully integrated and comprehensive suite of tools and features designed to digitise every aspect of the manufacturing workflow. Not only this, Herbst’s modular approach ensures flexibility and scalability, making it ideal for growing companies. With modular deployment, organisations can add on additional modules as needed, allowing for seamless expansion and adaptation to evolving business needs.


How Herbst Solutions Can Help You:

Job Costing: From estimation to completion, Herbst’s job costing enables manufacturers to manage jobs and bespoke projects with ease. By capturing costs in real-time and comparing actual vs. forecasted costs, organisations can ensure profitability and optimise resource allocation.

Removal of Paperwork: By digitising paperwork and reducing administrative tasks, duplication is removed and your processes are streamlined, freeing up valuable time and resources.

Production Planning: Herbst business management solutions enable manufacturers to plan production efficiently by incorporating materials, labor and other resources, ensuring optimal utilisation and minimising downtime.

Manufacturing Process: With Herbst’s touchscreen kiosks and apps, manufacturing processes are simplified by handling Bill of Materials, adjusting stock levels and managing production in real-time on the factory floor.

Stock Management: Manufacturers can view live stock information and streamline the procurement process at the touch of a button, ensuring adequate inventory levels while minimising stockouts and overstock situations.

Mobile Time-Sheets: Our mobile time-sheet application (also known as ‘Herbst Jobber’), replaces manual spreadsheets and paper-based time sheets, enabling employees to record hours worked accurately and efficiently by clocking in and out on the factory floor.

Receiving and Dispatching Goods: Herbst’s touchscreen kiosks and apps facilitate real-time receiving and dispatching of goods, leveraging barcode scanning, stock adjustments and quality control measures to ensure accuracy and efficiency at all times.

Traceability: Herbst traceability solutions enable manufacturers to track and trace the origin, movement and transformation of products and materials throughout the entire production process, ensuring compliance with regulatory requirements and enhancing product quality and safety.

Quality Control Checks: Manufacturers can implement robust quality control measures to ensure that products meet predetermined standards and specifications. By identifying defects or deviations early in the process, organisations can minimise rework and improve overall product quality.
