Symphony specializes in plant-floor data collection and was purposefully designed from the ground up to optimize productivity and ease data collection within the four walls of your food plant. Meaning, Symphony was engineered to minimize the impact felt on the plant floor while automating the collection of data with integrated scanners, scales and mobile devices. This familiar process will minimize employee resistance to new technology and accelerate its adoption by reducing training times while eliminating time-consuming and costly manual data-entry errors.
Symphony’s Warehouse Management (WMS) software enables users to track inventory from receiving through to shipping. With the Order Management Application sales orders can be tracked from the entry of an order through picking, staging, and shipping with a single application screen. For fast and accurate warehouse management Symphony WMS is an essential piece to any plant management system.
ERP & Accounting System Integration
Already have an ERP system? Symphony’s ERP Integration helps food plants get production information off their plant floor and into their ERP system. Symphony can integrate with your ERP or Accounting System dynamically synchronizing product files, vendors, customers, transaction data, and inventory details. Our software solutions and integration expertise is being used in many processing plants to fill that gap.
No two plants are the same built the same or have the same processes. That’s why Symphony was developed with a modular architecture. Optional add-ons are designed to bolt onto the core Symphony MES and WMS software applications. Each of the add-on modules enhances the available functionality to provide greater insight, traceability or production visibility.
“I personally use the Carlisle system for day-to-day planning and it is much better than our previous system. The Carlisle Symphony system is not complicated to use and has proven to be accurate and reliable. While our old system was adequate in years past, it lacked the ability to generate sufficient information in case of a recall. With the new Carlisle system, the information needed is available to us in a very short amount of time.
Over the years, I have been involved in several system changes. There are always significant challenges from every aspect. With this change to Symphony, any time I encounter something that needs to be tweaked or adjusted, I notify our project leader, Travis, and he reports that to the Carlisle team. The tweaks or adjustments are made in a timely manner and any concerns have been handled. A huge key to this is how good the relationship is between Travis and our IT group and the Carlisle team. No doubt the Carlisle Symphony system will make us better and allow us to service our customers with an order fill rate that is second to none.”
