Manufacturing Productivity Apps
AIM Mobility Apps
Manufacturing happens on the plant floor and modern automotive manufacturers need the ability to input information using the latest hardware. AIM Mobility Apps provide a real-time method to input transactions into the AIM Vision ERP suite through an Android tablet and bar code scanner directly from the plant floor or hi-lo.

Easily track and report on various manufacturing execution system functions. Capture employee time from when they arrive to when they leave the facility with the Time Clock function. Supervisors load the work center with item number and step scheduled for production. Operators utilize the Workcenter function to capture the activities at the work center including material production counts, downtime reporting, scrap and disposition reporting and printing of shipping or production labels directly from Wi-Fi enables line side printers.

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.
