The key to optimizing manufacturing operations is having total visibility across your entire supply chain. Effective demand planning, production scheduling and cost control require up to date information that you can trust.
From discrete manufacturers to job shops, fabricators and MTO/ETO, the right ERP software helps you streamline production processes and back-office operations.
With your entire business working in a centralized system, you can confidently predict demand, lower inventory costs and deliver on customer expectations.
A modern ERP solution delivers efficiency across every area of your business – from sales and marketing, to purchasing, inventory management, production and finance. By eliminating disparate systems and error-prone spreadsheets, you’ll find significant time savings, higher productivity and greater visibility into your supply chain.
Interested in growing your manufacturing business? Here’s how ERP software helps:
Ensure you’re investing in the right inventory to meet production schedules without over-stocking. Demand planning tools do the heavy lifting for you to create purchasing plans based on sales forecasts, lead times and manufacturing capacity.
Use powerful scheduling, capacity planning, routing and BOM management to optimize every aspect of your manufacturing process.
Automatically allocate components, resources, raw materials and labour to work orders so you know exactly what’s required for each order. This allows you to identify potential risks due to supply chain delays and respond proactively.
Fuel your finances with more accurate cost tracking and lower inventory carrying costs. Use automated accounting processes to collect payment faster and make faster, smarter financial decisions based on real-time data.
Get complete visibility into inventory levels across multiple warehouses, so you know exactly what you have on-hand and where it’s located. Monitor inventory updates in real-time to identify potential shortages before they happen.
Get a clear picture of your top metrics across the entire business in a single dashboard. In just a few minutes, you can understand your production costs, profitability, gross margins and more.
Staying competitive means keeping pace with changes in technology. ERP software is an essential component to your operations – helping you lower production costs, maximize revenue, boost efficiency and build a more agile organization.
