Testimonials from some of our happy customers, thank you for your support.

“Planability ETI really saved my bacon recently. In a dispute with a customer, I was able toimmediately quote chapter and verse on all the changes made after the price was accepted, whomade them and when. The system paid for itself right then! It’s been a revelation” – MD of a sign-making business

We asked Graeme, Technical Director of a bespoke engineering company, “What savings have you made by implementing Planability ETI”?
He told us: “ I would say it is difficult to measure as a specific percentage since there are many factors to consider. We have experienced the following:
  • Administrative time reduction; less bodies more throughput.
  • Reduction in volume of paper used.
  • Speeded up invoicing process and improved cash flow.
  • Enhanced the professionalism of the company through consistent and improved presentation.
  • Shortened enquiry to quote period by 75% on simple quotes.
The way we have reviewed it is to compare the prior year turnover/profit/overhead against the latest year. The result shows a significant improvement in efficiency of which Planability was a major contributor. I think the key strengths of Planability are its tailored flexibility and simplicity of use”.

Andrew, Production Controller at an international manufacturer, was asked for his views on their Planability system. Here is what he said:

The advantages of this system very simply are:

  • Simple tool for quick planning for multi users.
  • Minimal training required for users – fast start up.
  • Single Critical Path for key events in production process
  • Key events diary for user departments driven by critical path
  • East to view priorities by use of colour-code warnings

Ian, MD owner of a major exhibition set builder said he really liked Planability ETI because:

  • Complete and automatic project accounting easily allowing detailed backcostings
  • Simple and quick to learn the software
  • Automatically organizes our job files
  • Has simplified the quotation process and has forced the adoption of ISO9001 style project processes without any hassle.

Setsquare’s founding director, John O’Gorman, initially agreed to a three-month trial of Planability ETI (Enquiry To Invoice). “Planability’s structure is ideal to run our business using one point of reference from the initial enquiry, through the quotation stage right through to invoicing, managing all amendments on the way.

“We spent a frustrating amount of time and money looking at systems that proved unsuitable. We needed a system that would help us grow in a controlled way and Planability ETI worked for us from day one. Our team have found Planability incredibly intuitive – it really is a great match for our needs.”

This business has now been using Planability ETI for six years.

The MD of one of the UK’s largest sign businesses was asked to comment on his Planability system (originally installed as “Signflow”). He said:

“We pride ourselves on delivering the high level of customer service demanded by our top-tier clients.

Our manufacturing capabilities are a big differentiator and the ability to respond instantly to new enquiries is key. We thrive on managing rapid changes and delivering on time – these are basic requirements in our industry. We have used Signflow for many years and have experienced great results and high levels of satisfaction from customers, suppliers and system users.

New enquiries are immediately registered and allocated to a project manager. Accurate quotes are quickly generated and warning indicators ensure that all human activities and production stages are managed – we use a visual overview of the plan to keep an eye on things, too.

We are ISO9001 registered and find that Signflow helps with this as our processes are mirrored in the system”.

A long-term user in the sign-making industry said:

“The system is tailored for us both in the way it works and in the terminology used and we are delighted with the help and support we receive. We save time by automating processes, managing everything from enquiry to invoice in a single, simple-to-use system, designed for the job. Users love it for its simplicity in use, easy access to information at the desktop and its management reports”.
