A successful implementation requires a committed team approach where participants take ownership for their part in the migration to a new software system.
An AIM Project Manager will work with your team and guide the entire process from kick-off to Conference Room Pilot to cut-over and go-live. This ensures a smooth transition from the existing legacy system to the new ERP solution.
Some of the main functions of the implementation handled by the project manager includes:
- reviewing your project goals and objectives to ensure they are realistic and in line with the capabilities of the software
- developing a detailed implementation plan that is customized to the unique needs of your business
- assisting with developing and managing project schedules and completion deadlines
- coordinating and conducting training
- providing progress reports throughout your implementation process
The Implementation Methodology is broken into five stages: Prepare, Plan, Design, Validate, and Deploy. Each stage includes a series of segments that are filled with a set of inputs, tools, techniques, and deliverables all building upon one another to move to the next stage. The methodology also includes built-in sign-off processes to better ensure each party is satisfied throughout the project before moving to the next group of milestones. The end result is an on-time, on-budget implementation of your ERP solution tailored to bring your business to the next level.
Over the past seven years, our company has been working with AIM Vision. The software has provided us with a great solution for Repetitive Manufacturing and is very strong in providing a solid solution for EDI, Inventory Control, Production Posting, Purchasing, Shipping and Receiving. On the Accounting side the software talks seamlessly with Microsoft Dynamics GP.
Overall, we have been happy with the Support from AIM and the overall software. Great Group of people and they are based out of Michigan. Prior to AIM Vision, we used another ERP package for over 7-years and walked away from it; then moved over to AIM Vision.

I like the system's versatility because you can use it just to translate the EDI protocols or to ship all your finished goods and labeling system using Kanban systems; it will ensure the correct performance of your shipping process.

Before AIM we didn't really have inventory control, we were guessing at everything. Now with AIM Vision we have better inventory control, we know what we have, where it is, what warehouse it is in; I'd have to say it's about 97% accurate.
AIM has helped us because EDI, ASN and Bar Codes are seamlessly integrated into the software so we never have to have a special person handling it.
AIM Vision has been an excellent vehicle to streamline and our shipping processes and improve our efficiencies to shipping product and supporting our customers. So much so, that General Motors has recognized us as a Supplier of the Year recipient. We feel that the AIM Vision system has been instrumental in improving all facets of our business.

After implementing AIM we were able to reduce our required staff from 7 to 3 full-time supervisor employees for our 80 person production facility.
