Improving productivity and efficiency while minimizing costs, wastefulness, and ineffective practices — that pretty much sums up the job of the Operations Manager. Today, many of these job responsibilities are aided by software and automation tools. That means that the software and applications the operations manager has in his tool box directly affect his ability to do the job. Choosing the software is one of the most critical tasks on the operations manager’s plate.
One Operations Manager’s story
Let’s consider one operations manager, Edward, and how he went about doing this very thing: choosing the right ERP software to maximize his company’s daily operations while minimizing waste and ineffectiveness. Edward wears multiple hats in his company, including supply chain VP, ops VP, manufacturing VP, and COO.
Edward depends on accurate and timely reporting from the other business units in order to make the right decisions and realize the company’s potential in terms of effectiveness. Though he already has an ERP system in place, he needs a system to help him improve operational efficiency.
What this Operations Manager needs in ERP software
Edward’s primary concerns for a new ERP solution are:
- The need for accurate forecasting
- The need for improved reporting on productivity
- The need for better reporting for inventory, resource allocation, etc.
- The need for a single source for data and BI
- The need for a real-time view of operations without having to wait for information to be delivered
Edward needs a way to boost profits by reducing operational costs, and he’s finding it hard with his current system to track inventory levels consistently. Even with his advanced knowledge of ERP, Edward is having trouble gaining the visibility he needs for accurate reporting with his current system.
Edward turned to the NexTec Group to help him choose the right ERP software for his needs. He chose to work with the NexTec Group, because he found it easy to work with us and discovered the ease of use our solution provided.
