Our corporate mission is to develop software that repetitive manufacturers, specifically automotive and truck suppliers, implement to achieve and maintain world class status.   Genzlinger products and support services help our clients improve the operation and management of the entire enterprise, the individual manufacturing facility, the department, and the individual. 

The Genzlinger software provides a single integrated solution for EDI, ERP and data collection (bar code label scanning).  Product focus is on the Genzlinger Release/Shipment Communications (RSC/EDI) software and the Genzlinger Repetitive Manufacturing System (GRMS). 

Our service focus is on implementation assistance, consulting, education and training, hotline support, custom programming and systems integration services.  This full range of client support services assures that our software is installed and working quickly to leverage enterprise growth opportunities and remove threats to sustained success. 

Company Background 

Genzlinger Associates was incorporated in 1971 as a custom programming shop.  After extensive experience customizing poorly fitting software to support the needs of automotive suppliers, we began to design and develop our own packaged EDI and ERP solutions.  Genzlinger continually expands the functionality and flexibility of our software, providing one of the highest value solutions to small and medium size manufacturers.

 Genzlinger is an employee-owned company.  Our corporate culture is built on the highest standards of integrity, quality and service to our customers.
