Cetec ERP was founded by seasoned ERP specialists with a desire to help businesses run their operations more efficiently. This desire led to a cloud-native platform with innovative features, available at a fraction of the cost of the typical ERP system.

Cetec ERP provides a web-based, fully integrated business suite for manufacturers and distributors. We believe that ERP systems can be delivered in a practical, logical, and lower cost manner that will dramatically help small and mid-sized companies. We are committed to working closely with manufacturing companies around the world who want to take advantage of a completely full-suite platform. Our platform includes supply chain and inventory control, CRM and purchasing, production tracking and scheduling, quality control, accounting and financials. With a platform that is at once enterprise-caliber and extremely user friendly, Cetec ERP aims to become a trusted standard for both financials and operations excellence on behalf of manufacturers old and new looking to be smart about business software.

Our Austin, Texas team has grown to include accounting, operations, and manufacturing veterans. Our goal is to help customers streamline their day-to-day tasks and grow their businesses without the hassle and cost associated with traditional ERP systems.

Meet The Team

Brent Barton (CEO) - Brent Barton started working with Cetec in 1998, importing Vendor pricing files for use in Legacy Cetec.

He likes to find ways to build consensus and understanding, and dreams of retiring to operate heavy equipment.

Taylor Wagen (COO) - Taylor first started at Cetec ERP in 1999, in the middle of the dot com era. Over the years Taylor has directed ERP system implementations for wiring harness, cable assembly, and electronics manufacturers of various sizes and requirements.

Jordan Jolly (Director Of Implementation) - Jordan is a native Austinite who studied at University of Texas (Austin) and completed his degree in December 2009. After that, Jordan worked a few odd jobs before he began at Cetec ERP.

In the past decade, Jordan has helped companies use the new Cetec ERP platform to scale their finance and operations, and is eager about the future of Cetec ERP and the value that this new and extremely practical platform can bring to growing companies. His greatest accomplishment was convincing his high school sweetheart Kayla to marry him and spawning four whipper-snappers in the time since.
