Celebrating Another Successful Apprenticeship at MIE Solutions.

Celebrating Another Successful Apprenticeship at MIE Solutions.

Congratulations to Paul Merricks, Technical Support Engineer at MIE Solutions who has successfully completed his Advanced IT Apprenticeship with outstanding achievement and progress. 

Over the course of his apprenticeship Paul has become a key member of the team performing at a consistently high level. Of particular note is Paul’s initiative, commitment and ability to learn new things. He has made an exceptional contribution to the support team and customer care service areas, allowing us to continue to provide the support our customers have become accustomed to. 

Here at MIE we are strong believers in investing in the future and playing a part in creating the workforce of tomorrow. 

Why do MIE invest so heavily in apprentices? 

Apprentices are part of the future of our world and therefore potentially the future of most industries. In today’s media, a lot of emphasis is put on the unemployment rate and lack of opportunities for young adults. 

As a successful & rapidly growing company, we feel we are in a position to give our younger generation help and guidance when needed. We were all once in their shoes and would probably not be in the positions we are today if we were not once given a chance. The other thing to remember is that you are dealing with people who are at the beginning of their working life and are ready to learn. This enables you, as a company, to teach them the way you wish for them to work and the morals you abide by. At this early stage, they have not been susceptible to years of exposure to different ways (and potentially incorrect ways) of doing things. 

Where do we see our apprentices further down the line? 

Since the start of our apprenticeship scheme in July 2013, we have had four of our apprenticeships come on board under full employment, and currently have three more still contracted under the apprenticeship scheme. 

Our apprenticeship to full time employment rate stands at 100%, meaning that from a business point alone, the time and effort put into the next generation has not been wasted. Business aside, our Directors, Sam and Chris, feel a sense of pride when they see a young and inexperienced apprentice develop into a fully independent and responsible adult.

Kiyokuni Case Study

MIETrak Pro shows its versatility with another success story from Kiyokuni Europe Ltd

Kiyokuni Europe Limited was established in 1987 as part of the Japanese owned, Kiyokuni Group. They have been manufacturing metal pressings and assemblies for over 30 years, and now occupy a 7,100m2, purpose built factory in Telford, Shropshire, offering a one-stop solution for its customers that includes design, prototype, manufacture and finish.

Simon Pease – IT / Purchasing / Planning Manager states:

“The main reason for this choice was, as an accredited TS16949 Tier 2 Automotive supplier, we had to make sure that any new system provided the traceability and control that this standard requires and MIETrak Pro offers both.

MIETrak Pro has given us the ability to take several standalone systems and incorporate them into one making it much easier to share information between employees at all levels. This has enabled us to move to totally live production bookings on the Shop Floor (via Kiosk) and live stock movements (via Barcode Scanner Server). This has improved stock accuracy as problems can be resolved at source and this leads to enhanced MRP’s effectiveness.

MRP is the main driver for our business and MIE Solutions were open to develop their MRP system to one that I firmly believe is now World Class, not only proposing POs / WOs to meet demand but also suggesting move proposals for existing orders as customer demand changes, either short term or long term.

The system is very cost effective, especially when compared to other like for like systems on the market today, but this in no way compromises what MIETrak Pro delivers. The reporting systems are excellent via Quick View Reports and if we’ve been unsure how to create a report MIE Solutions have been more than happy to assist us.

Support / training is of a very high standard, quick response, excellent problem solving and very professional. MIETrak Pro has evolved in the time that we’ve been using the system with enhancements, some that we use, some that we don’t, but it’s predominantly our choice and timescale which is very comforting

Whilst Kiyokuni Europe Limited is not a sheet metal manufacturer, MIETrak Pro has seamlessly replaced our old ERP system within our manufacturing environment where we use multi level BOMs and Cellular production units. I am more than happy to discuss Kiyokuni’s experiences with MIETrak Pro from the selection process to going live – My contact details are available from MIE Solutions UK Ltd.”
