Enterprise Resource Planning

ERP Connectivity

ESE understands how to get the most out of your ERP system. Our solutions will help you “close the gap” between the process control system (the brawn) and your ERP/MES system (the brains). Solutions in this area can take many forms in many critical areas of production, from batching systems to quality to inventory and everything in between.


MES Lite

ERP systems can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to implement. But there are many food & beverage companies without existing, large-scale ERP systems that are still in need of specific ERP functionality. For these situations, ESE provides tailored, stand-alone ERP/MES “Lite” solutions that deliver the perfect blend of value and performance.



Virtualized Systems

Infrastructure is critical. For production systems, it need to be hardened, it needs to be smart, and it needs to be economical. Leveraging virtualization allows you maximum uptime, ease of maintenance, unlimited expandability, and efficient deployment of systems throughout your facility. ESE’s experts can tailor a solution that is just the right fit and balance for your organization.

Distributed Systems

Gone are the days of stand-alone, isolated systems. Plant-wide Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems allow you complete door-to-door control and visibility of your operation. Plant-wide alarms, control, and process data are visible from anywhere, which is especially useful in today’s mobile world.

Additional MIS Solutions


Replace the outmoded circular chart recorder with reliable PMO Electronic Recordkeeping from ESE. ESE’s PMO solution accurately captures temperature requirements and events, and provides full compliance with USDA requirements for electronic data collection, storage, and reporting.


We live in a connected world – one where nearly every automation device is capable of providing a stream of useful information. The challenge is filtering and adding context to this massive quantity of information so it can be used to make decisions. ESE’s experts will interview each role within your organization, and will tailor a solution that provides exactly the information required.


Information is more accessible than ever, but that’s just the first step. Common network technologies and ever-expanding capabilities of modern-day controls hardware means that interfacing systems is easier than ever before. It is possible for production equipment and the control system to become an extension of your business system. Immediate access to incoming orders, product formulations, inventory, and production schedules allows your control system to be more responsive than ever.
