Today’s manufacturers face an especially complex and global business environment due to the constant pressure from changing regulations. It’s becoming more and more critical to streamline operations and automate labor-intensive activities such as reporting, managing inventory and coordinating workflows. For your company to achieve your goals and grow revenues, real-time visibility into all aspects of operations is necessary, so that decisions can be made quickly and operating efficiencies can be improved.
Features for the Manufacturing Industry
Integrated software can help you plan production timed to customer demand and supplier cycles. It can help improve production cycle planning with capacity planning, bill of materials management and shop floor controls. With industry-specific software, you can tie in performance tracking and financial reporting to create plans that take into account lead times, material requirements and supply delivery.
With ERP software, you can be confident the right inventory is available and ensure products leave the factory at the right time. Using software, you can greatly reduce the time and resources required to prepare documentation for shipping, including compliance with hazmat and exporting requirements. Robust picking and packing tools means you can track and process orders with a much higher degree of accuracy.
Avoid the costly expense of overstocking materials and supplies as a result of market fluctuations.
