Everything you need and nothing you don’t.

More Features

Revolutionise your factory.

Bespoke Items Simplified

Straightforward customisation like a change in length? Simply choose the length, we calculate the costs, lead times, and tell your team what to do. More complicated? No problem. Drag and drop to configure, we do the rest.

Access Anywhere

Factory in the Mexico, you’re in the USA, customer service in the Philippines? Or maybe you’re just on vacation and a customer has asked what’s happening with their order. Doesn’t matter. View your factory details from anywhere.

Unrivalled Quoting

Need to cost a new product? Drag and drop to configure, and instantly get costs and lead times. Going ahead with the quote? We tell you what you need to order, and tell your production team exactly what they should make.

Easy Labelling

Instantly print labels for any order or stock component, with QR codes automatically generated – scan with your mobile device to quickly see the history of the item.

Security and Persistence

Stored remotely, your data is backed up – keep all your production records in one place. Customer is re-ordering a bespoke item made years ago? No more digging through paperwork. Just add it to an order, the system will work out what you need and tell your team what to do.

Quick to Learn and Use

You don’t have time to learn a new computer system, and your team are makers, not computer people. Factory Superstar is quick to learn and even quicker to use – the user should see everything needed and nothing more. (Don’t let the simplicity fool you – we keep the complex stuff to ourselves).

Make Better Decisions

Everything is tracked, so everything can be analysed. How many orders have I sent with this courier? What’s the cost history of this component? Who’s our 12th biggest customer? How much did profit did we make on this order?

Multi-Channel Sales

Sell through your own online store, through distributors, drop shipping, eBay, Amazon, or sales agents? Add as many sales channels as you need. Keep track of their performance, and even customise their labels based on what return addresses need to be shown.

Never Lose Track of a Purchase

You’re making things and running a business too – you have a lot of deliveries. Quickly generate a purchase order for everything you buy (however small), and we’ll tell you if it’s late to arrive. (We’ll also track how long it took to arrive, and how much it cost this time so we can work out accurate costs… but we’re not going to show off about that)..

Add Your Team

Add and remove team members at a moment’s notice, no email required. You can even set it up so when you login it goes to a particular process so you can have a screen for every workstation. Oh, and we realise some things are sensitive… certain information (like costs) are only shown to users you’re happy showing them to.


Frequently Asked Questions

Dive into the following questions to gain insights into the powerful features that Factory Superstar offers and how it can elevate your manufacturing business.

Why Factory Superstar?

Factory Superstar was started by accident. We built a system to manage our own manufacturing business as we couldn't find a suitable alternative. Our system was so effective that we sold the business to focus on the software. We know manufacturing. We understand the problems you'll face as you grow.

What do I need to start?

You can get started today, though we highly recommend you speak to one of our team so that they can get a feel for your business and guide you through the set-up process. Factory Superstar is designed to address the issues of manufacturing at a fundamental level, which is what makes it so effective. It also means there can be lots of different ways to set things up, so we can advise on what's best.

How to install screens at my workstations?

All you need it something that can show an internet browser. We recommend an inexpensive tablet PC for simplicity, though old phones, and Raspberry Pi's are frequently used.

Can I integrate with X?

In short, yes. We're adding integrations all the time, and we also offer connection service through third party providers so you can connect just about anything. Some customers connect their website, some of our larger customers connect their ERP system.
