The term escape velocity refers to the speed necessary for an object to overcome gravity and soar into space. We see direct application for businesses looking for a catalyst, not just a software package, but software coupled with industry experience, that will accelerate the velocity with which they race towards their goals. The gravity of status-quo opposes aggressive, cutting edge organizations as they strive towards high quality and short lead time delivery while reducing inventories and operating costs.
Escape Velocity Systems (EVS) was formed in 2001 to combine specific industry knowledge related to process manufacturing, distribution and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) implementations with cutting edge software development. Specialty industries include food and beverage, life sciences, nutraceuticals, chemicals, health and beauty products, and metals. The company focus is to create tools that enable mid-market enterprises to achieve their goals, focusing on lean processes and ROI.
Why is EVS different? We have always had just one focus; process manufacturing. With this focus we continually re-define our industry and provide industry-defining solutions to meet the ever changing requirements of the industry. But tools are only as good as the craftsman; EVS draws from many years of experience in consulting, project management, development and support in process manufacturing. The complex environment of process manufacturing requires focused expertise to deliver an excellent solution; that’s the EVS difference. We use our expertise in process manufacturing to deliver innovative solutions that provide transparency in your operations, reduce your risk, and provide real-time ROI improvement.
At EVS, our goal is to provide industry-defining solutions to our target market of Small-to-Midsize Business (SMB) in process manufacturing industries. Prior to founding EVS, both principals of the firm worked in the process manufacturing industry. Through this prior industry expertise, EVS was born. Over the years, we have defined dozens of ultra-vertical industries in process manufacturing and continually work with our clients in these industries to define their specific ERP requirements. By developing flexible and expandable software using Agile development principles, EVS is able to frequently release new features and functionality to our target ultra-vertical industries.
Escape Velocity was started with one idea: meeting a real need with a real solution. There are many software products in the market that seem right but in practice never take you where you envisioned. Our drive has positioned us as a leader in our market space by providing products that are flexible and complete. At Escape Velocity Systems, there are two qualities we esteem and strive to reflect: Vision and Life.
Vision: Businesses are complex. Business processes are complex. Accurately modeling your vision in a software system requires a design that sees beyond the immediate requests and pains you are trying to solve; it requires a software system that provides features and functionality you can grow into. If we are going to provide your solution of the future, we must see the big picture: automated environments where the ERP system and the shop floor are one, where real time data is captured as it happens, and a system is as useful to operations as it is to accounting. Our goal is to see beyond immediate pains and provide a solution that will be an integral part of growing your business.
Life: The quality of something having life is hard to define, but you know when you have it. Living things grow, they evolve; life itself is always looking for a better way to live. Life is always looking for more life. Our customers are partners on our journey. As we grow and evolve, we add ideas to our software and services offerings; not just new products, but new ways of looking at your existing investments. We are growing. Our products are growing, and our experience is growing with every new customer. We want your business to grow with our software.
