ARGENT PRO Ltd was founded by Mark Garnett in 2018 to use his passion for manufacturing and expertise in business systems to benefit manufacturing and distribution companies in the UK and abroad.

Mark holds a degree in Manufacturing Systems from Coventry Polytechnic (1987), initially working as a Production Engineer before moving into business systems. He has worked in a variety of industries before joining an ERP software house and ERP implementation partners where he assisted companies big and small in almost every European country. His unique selling point being that he is his understanding of manufacturing and deep knowledge of ERP so approaches every challenge as an opportunity to utilise standard configuration (avoiding customisation wherever possible) to ensure maximum future flexibility.

He was worked with a number of different MRPII and ERP systems so is not mind-constrained to just one solution. A significant portion of his career was using MFG/PRO from QAD where he held certification passes* for all three areas; Distribution, Manufacturing and Finance (the second in Europe to pass all three).

HIs deepest knowledge is in the area of EDI and the EDI eCommerce module (delivered the first implementation in Europe, was instrumental in significant improvements and now has deep expertise using this module for EMT (the back to back order capability named Enterprise Material Transfer).

Mark has worked extensively with the .NETUI interface and has created literally hundreds of browses allowing users to access their own data, get insights from metrics and provide management overview in dynamic dashboards.

Mark no longer works for or with QAD and no endorsement is implied. The Trade Marks that include QAD, MFG/PRO, EE, SE, EMT belong to QAD Inc and are only used to refer to their products and services.
