Galaxy Technologies Goes to Infinity and Beyond with Global Shop Solutions
Located in Winfield, Kansas, Galaxy Technologies is a leading tooling supplier for aerospace, defense and plastic markets. From design engineering to manufacturing, sub-assembly, assembly and installation, Galaxy offers turnkey solutions for complex design and manufacturing challenges. Since 1985, the company has custom-designed its products for customers such as Boeing, Spirit Aerosystems, Lockheed Martin and Rubbermaid. With the same critical eye they focus on their product, Galaxy looked for the best ERP software system.

“Global Shop Solutions is one of few ERP products that offers inventory control, production control and accounting all in one integrated system,” says Jerry Bolack, IT director for Galaxy. “It handles everything we need to run the business, from purchase and sales orders all the way through invoicing.”
One of the first areas of improvement came from revamping the sales order/work order process. Previously, all work orders and routers were paper-driven. Now, they’re all done inside the software system. As a result, paper documents on the shop floor have become a rare sight. “We’re currently using Global Shop Solutions in so many areas of the business that there’s very little paper left anywhere,” says Bolack. “All we have to do is log into the system to see what’s going on anywhere in the plant.”
