What our customers said
Here is a selection of what some of our customers said about their experience with MRPeasy in 2023.
● Alistair Watson, Managing Director at Stakam: “I feel like we struck gold with MRPeasy. It’s become such an asset that I often grapple between wanting to keep it as our secret weapon and the desire to showcase our robust systems.”
● Kendra Scappaticci, Operations Manager at KS2: “When we start producing new items, drawing up new bills of materials and getting them linked up with production planning takes just a few hours now instead of days. We can upload a new BOM, be ready to submit manufacturing orders, and send out invoices associated with the new product within the same day now.”
Procurement and inventory management
● Matt Zimmerman, Founder and CEO at FarSounder: “Using our previous system, it took me a day to understand what parts we needed to order and when. With MRPeasy, it takes less than an hour.”
● James Watt, Supply Chain Coordinator at Blighter Surveillance Systems: “MRPeasy has helped us hugely with controlling the flow of goods and making sure we haven’t got loads of bits sitting around that we don’t know what they’re for. It’s really saved us from having too much cash tied up in stock.”
Sales and revenue growth
● Eric Roering, Founder of Fontana Candle: “We do a lot of big sales during the holiday season and MRPeasy allows me to sell ahead with confidence. Instead of putting only the 100 candles that I have in stock on sale, I can put up 10,000 candles that haven’t been made yet and still know that I will be able to deliver them on time. It has allowed us to keep our service levels and customer satisfaction up.”
● Alece Piper, Vice President at Bernard Laboratories: “We have definitely grown thanks to MRPeasy. We are now able to fulfill more orders, generate more revenue, and have an accurate overview of everything.”
Compliance and quality

● Allyson Straka, Founder of Frozen Garden: “MRPeasy has all the functionality manufacturers from industries such as food or pharma need to comply with FDA regulations and get to the next level of efficiency.
Software user experience
● Ve Chao, Operations Manager at ABI Mouldings: “Building the whole system to meet our requirements was so easy that we hardly looked at the manual during implementation.”
● Lindsey Daniels, Project Manager at RetiVue: “MRPeasy is undoubtedly the most useful piece of software I have seen in at least 10 years.”
