CANETEC is currently undergoing a major change behind the scenes with the installation of a new software system.

Opto Manufacturing & Inventory Software is an all-in-one solution that will ultimately help us build better quality products, on time and as efficiently as possible. It is an investment that we see as crucial to being able to grow and compete against much larger manufacturers while still retaining our advantage of providing bespoke solutions.

The system will help us provide better service and value in several ways including:

  • More accurate forecasting of timeframes for job completion
  • We can reduce costs and eliminate waste while remaining flexible and responsive
  • Real-time reporting on job progress and activity
  • Improved ability to stay in touch with our customers and keep you informed

How Does It Work?

The software package has a comprehensive list of features that will enable us to have a better business and ultimately, meet our customers’ needs more effectively.

The features of the package we have purchased include:

  • Inventory Management
  • Bill of Materials
  • Time Clocking
  • Estimating & Quoting
