Our experience providing managed IT services to Manufacturing Firms uniquely positions us to keep key systems running 24/7, reducing expenses and driving the firm’s profitability.

Manufacturing companies have unique challenges. Before engaging with Core Managed, we’ve seen manufacturing companies struggle with a variety of issues such as:

  • Compliance (NIST, ITAR, ISO9000, ISO/TS19449, ISO 27001, OQE “Objective Quality Evidence”)
  • Inventory Tracking
  • Managing capital projects to upgrade on premise servers
  • Order Management
  • Warehouse Management
  • Complicated setups including VPN and terminal servers

Many of the manufacturing companies we have met do not have a proactive strategy around IT.  They don’t know what they have, and they don’t have a plan.  They need a roadmap to align technology with business goals.

Core Managed provides just that. Our vCIO team conducts a quarterly audit to identify risks, vulnerabilities, and problem hardware. They meet with you to bring you the items that matter most.​

Your manufacturing company can not only have a plan, but also peace of mind. What this means to you is that you can focus on growing your firm and serving your clients because you have a comprehensive IT strategy that scales. 

In addition to long range planning provided by a dedicated vCIO, our manufacturing clients enjoy rapid response to help desk issues.

We provide expert support for:

  • Epicore
  • Henning (EstiTrack)
  • MS Dynamics
  • E2 Shop System by Shoptech
  • Job Boss

  • Global Shop
