KeyedIn today announced the latest release of its cloud-based Manufacturing ERP solution and also reported it is migrating its hosting infrastructure to Microsoft Azure.  KeyedIn Manufacturing for Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), focused on delivering increased functionality for custom, make-to-order manufacturers, now allows them to further streamline key front-office manufacturing management processes.  In addition, through standard role-based dashboards and workbenches, KeyedIn users will now have even more visibility to issues requiring immediate attention.  KeyedIn is a leading provider of cloud-based ERP solutions to small and mid-sized manufacturers.

“Manufacturers continue to experience strong growth, but what they really need are solutions that reduce redundancy and streamline key business processes,” said Dave Lechleitner, Director of Product Marketing for KeyedIn. “KeyedIn is here to help them by providing the technology solutions to better service their customers at a reduced cost and with scalability for the future.  Our latest ERP release, combined with our move to Microsoft Azure, means manufacturers can maximize their limited resources and be well-positioned for growth.”

“Moving to Microsoft Azure is huge for our customers as it allows them to leverage a world-class, secure computing environment, with the benefits of a true cloud platform,” added Kevin Hurley, Chief Technology Officer for KeyedIn. “Microsoft Azure is a platform that will scale with our customers and our product, as well as being aligned with our technology.”

In addition to the migration to Microsoft Azure and the deployment of dashboards and workbenches, the new release features these key enhancements:

  • Back flushing material and labor to reduce the cost and effort for managing low cost material or labor
  • Product templates and operation standards to reduce the time to create new estimates or release new work to the shop floor for parts similar (but not the same) as previous work
  • Creation of packing lists from the shop floor application
  • Employee supervisor visibility to employee information from the shop floor application

KeyedIn Manufacturing 5.06 is now available and was provided automatically to all current KeyedIn Manufacturing ERP customers. More information about KeyedIn Manufacturing can be found at
