06/01/2010 - Triangle Welcomes Caelus Consulting

Caelus Consulting formed in January 2010 to perform sales and support of the Caelus Management System (CMS). The Caelus Management System is Enterprise Resource Planning software that was originally produced more than twenty years ago. Since that time, CMS has grown into a fully integrated management system that will handle all data processing tasks for a manufacturing company.

As a complete management system, CMS encompasses every aspect of doing business as a manufacturing company. CMS takes care of all payrolls, personnel, accounting, and banking functions. On the manufacturing floor, CMS does shop floor control, production planning, materials, estimating and quotations, and engineering change tracking. CMS will handle purchasing and receiving, cost modeling, inventory, sales order management, processing and shipping. There are many other systems modules available. If an enterprise needs something that CMS doesn't already do, the programmers at Caelus Consulting will create the addition requested. CMS is no nonsense software that can be manipulated using function keys for everything. It supports easy data entry with a focus on functionality 'not bells and whistles.

Caelus Consulting acquired the rights to CMS and recently opened for business in the Great Western Building at 905 W Riverside, Suite 214. Principals in the company are Dale Walker, CPIM, lead consultant and Jim Holcomb, CFPIM, lead programmer. Walker has worked with CMS for over eleven years, and he used the software for seven years before that when working for a manufacturing company. He knows everything that CMS can do, and trains others in how to use it well. Holcomb has worked as a programmer on CMS for over twenty-three years. He is in charge of any desired modifications.

A diverse group of manufacturing industries use CMS. The firms range from medical device manufacturing, through diesel engine rebuilding to custom screws. Other firms include a cookie bakery, cleaning products, packaging machines, and food product processing equipment. Users include re manufacturers of all sorts, as well as airplanes, jewelry, RV's, and ceramics. "CMS end users really like the software and are a loyal group," says Walker. If CMS has a weakness, it is that although it is excellent for manufacturing at a single site, it doesn't do as well for firms managing multi-sites. If any company drops CMS, it is because they have been bought out by a larger company, and the multi-site difficulty prevails."

Caelus Consulting is a small company and is concentrating on marketing regionally until they can expand and add consultants. Because they are small, they can compete aggressively on price, according to Walker. Caelus Consulting will help install and train end users. "There's no silver bullet," says Walker, "one size doesn't fit all. With CMS, we show people what it can do for them, and if it needs customizing, we work really fast."
