Cantier: Affordable Manufacturing ERP Software
In today’s competitive marketplace, it is essential that manufacturers constantly improve the efficiency of their factories, with attention to even the smallest of details. Unfortunately, many manufacturers end up with several layers of both complex and expensive software products.
In order to serve the global manufacturing hub in Asia-Pacific, Cantier has developed affordable, integrated web-based manufacturing software that offers a diverse range of solutions to help businesses run smoother. A team of dedicated experts, with first-hand experience in factory operations, quality, and manufacturing, combined with skills in advanced software development, helped to create the industry specific Cantier Manufacturing Software Suites.
“Cantier, Making It Simple, provides integrated manufacturing software solutions whether you are using existing financial software or you are looking for an integrated solution from shop floor to top floor,” relays Prabakar P. Selvam, CEO, Cantier.
For manufacturers who have implemented Generic Financial Application, Cantier provides MES Software (Manufacturing Execution System) to manage key shop floor functions such as Factory Planning and Scheduling, Work In Progress (WIP), Data Collection, Quality Tools, and Equipment Maintenance.
Selvam explains that, “While many ERPs in the market focus on the financial aspects of the supply chain, Cantier ERP One is designed specifically to help small and mid-size manufacturers to manage and control their manufacturing activities as a single integrated solution, at an affordable price.”

This provides various benefits to the customer including real time visibility of the shop floor, product and material traceability, timely decision-making based on real data, lower cost of software acquisition and ownership, paperless environment, and overall improved manufacturing cost. Moreover, as the customer needs grow, it’s easy to add Cantier advanced tools such as EMMS and SPC in the same framework. Cantier follows both rapid and phased implementation methodologies based on project size & complexity. With the help of Cantier‘s Industry Specific Suites, companies can realize benefits much quicker, often with less disruption and lower cost using the rapid approach. Whereas, the phased approach can work best for complex or large projects, leveraging the lessons learned from the earlier stages.
