Why did you choose MONITOR?
"We are part of the Amymone group, and some of the companies within the group already use MONITOR and only had good things to say about the system," explains Ms. Jenny Xiao, Operation Manager at Shanghai Arenco Machinery Co., Ltd.
"MONITOR has a straightforward and user-friendly interface with a strong, logical design of program menus and production-related functions. This makes it very easy for our users to understand the system, and helps us to see the relationship between different measures, and how they affect the rest of production," Jenny adds.
Do you feel Monitor has given you the support you need?
"Monitor’s consultants have given us very good support. Not only do they have great knowledge of the system, they are also experienced, and understand the manufacturing industry. This has helped us a lot, especially when it comes to pre-production preparation when creating the product structures. Without the consultants from Monitor it would have been harder for Arenco to set this up, since our business is based on small volumes and complicated structures. With their help, implementation went very well and was completed on schedule."

"We have received good service when we have contacted support, even though we have not needed a lot support since implementation. That, if anything, is proof of an effective system," Jenny adds.
How much of the ERP system are you using in your business?
"Our entire operation is managed by MONITOR at present. There are functions in MONITOR that we use, but in other ways than intended. Together with Monitor, we have adapted them to suit our ideas and purposes. We only manage payroll and some of the financial functions outside of the system, which is due to legal demands in China. We also use the Management Accounting and MONITOR EIM options in order to simplify our day-to-day work," Jenny adds.
Does MONITOR contribute to the process of further developing your business?
"MONITOR helps us to systemize different routines that we previously handled with Excel and Access, which has saved us a lot of resources. More effective ways of working definitely help to develop our business," Jenny adds.
