Sage 500 Provides MRP Strength for Pro Tapes & Specialties

pro-tapesCustomer Spotlight

Pro Tapes & Specialties uses Sage ERP for core accounting, manufacturing, and distribution. RKL eSolutions has assisted Pro Tapes & Specialties in a variety of ways over the last 6+ years. We performed two upgrades of their Sage ERP application and assisted them with their move to the cloud on Amazon Web Services (AWS).

MRP (Materials Resource Planning) is a crucial part of Pro Tape’s business operations. Based on our partnership with Pro Tapes, we were able to develop custom crystal reports (see Crystal Reports Tips & Tricks below) and business insights explorer views to get critical information in the hand of their production managers and buyers.

In the distribution area, RKL worked with Pro Tapes to review and select True Commerce EDI a solution that integrates with their ERP. Their business has been expanding with new trading partners, and EDI has been critical to meet their trading partner requirements and to accelerate the distribution process. We also assisted Pro Tapes with barcode printing and labeling modifications to streamline their distribution.
