M1™ software empowers more than 25,000 users globally to manage their manufacturing operations and grow their businesses quicker and easier than ever before.

Since 2000, M1 has been an engine of growth for manufacturing businesses. Bowen and Groves was founded in 1992 by Geoff Groves, a manufacturing and engineering professional who decided to design a system where the users could be more efficient and productive while being empowered with a uniquely flexible ERP that could easily be adapted to any environment. M1 was launched to meet the specific needs of growing manufacturers and solve the issue of existing ERP systems that were not flexible enough to meet the needs of evolving manufacturing businesses. Acquired by ECi Software Solutions in 2009, it continues to stand as ECi’s flagship product and leading business unit serving the manufacturing industry.
