System100™ Award Winning Software – Article

System100 Awards System100 award winning software is a browser-based business process management solution. It’s designed to eliminate reruns, bottlenecks and waste in small to medium-sized manufacturing and other types of businesses. Philip Beyer developed this unique software using his company, Beyer Printing, Inc. in Nashville, Tennessee as a prototype for a well-ordered business. Beyer soon realized that virtually any type or size business could profit by using these well-planned systems.

Ground-Breaking Business Organizational Software

Printing operations reports an average of 3 to 5% rework and another 3 to 5% in non-conforming events. System100™ software brings these waste ratios to below 1%, by bringing order to workflow. Moreover, systemization empowers people to work at maximum efficiency.

InterTech judges were impressed with how System100™ serves as a “brain trust” for all the technical aspects of a business. They noted, with this technology in place, expertise and knowledge does not leave the company when people do. When problems occur, there is a structure in place to address them, investigating root causes and suggesting remedies. System100™ then alters workflow, all in one seamless operation. Additionally, there is a series of auto triggers to promptly address “system-busting” problems.

System100™ software is available to business owners as a monthly, hosted service. With permissions, the multi-functional private intranet is accessible anywhere in the world. Its dashboard approach to interdepartmental communications includes job descriptions, daily routine checklists, policies, procedures, quality control checklists, and other valuable documents.

Six key concepts are targeted for increased profitability: Lean manufacturing, sustainability, data analysis, employee engagement, process automation, and change management.

System100 Award Encourages Better Business Process Management

Beyer established his commercial printing business in 1988 and, by its fifth year, found it steeped in chaos.

“I didn’t own a business; it owned me,” Beyer says. “The floodgates of chaos opened up, when we reached a certain size! Complicating matters further, the business was too big for me to keep all the information in my head, and it was too small for us to hire people to handle the chaos.”

Does this sound familiar to any business owner out there?

“The process, from data entry to shipping, is extremely complicated in commercial printing,” Beyer notes. “The reason for that is, each job is custom, not to mention, the variables seem almost infinite. I worked thousands of hours for over ten years to systematize virtually every aspect of our operation. In less than a year the company cut waste by 36% and saved more than $23,000, after implementing a single unified system. Five years in, we were operating 99.55% error-free in production!”

Philip Beyer named his software System100™ because, as he says, “It’s a complete circuit, a comprehensive system. It’s built to organize business processes to 100% and nothing less. In my sixth year of building the systems, I received many comments and questions from customers and vendors about how clean and organized our company was. I have been asked by my customers, and many other companies now, to speak to their employees on how we set up our systems.”

In 2009, System100™ became a recipient of the InterTech Technology Award from the Printing Industries of America. Beyer’s desire to take his systems to other businesses led him to write his now popular book, System Busters: How to Stop Them in Your Business.
