How A Cloud Manufacturing Software Solution Can Help Your Company Improve Operations

by Sep 18, 2017Cloud, ERP Research0 comments

Your widget company has just had the best quarter in 4 years and your salespeople are driving the growth exponentially. The problem is you don’t know whether you can fulfill your orders this week or if you will have to delay, possibly for weeks! A little background on the widget company that will probably sound familiar. You have an outdated server that is running an out of date ERP platform that’s no longer supported by the developer. You have a few critical customizations and there’s no way you can live without those and survive! HHHMMMMM, really? We understand that business works at the speed of opportunity and you somehow never have time to research and plan upgrades and new software strategy. However, if you don’t have the insight and a qualified consultant/partner to help you plan than you may never reach your full potential.

 

Does this scenario sound familiar?

Let’s meet James, his widget company has had explosive growth over the past year and no slowdown in sight. His outdated platform gives him no visibility into his daily inventory or processes. He relies on visual checks of stock to help fulfill his daily and weekly inventory needs. His orders of new stock always seem to be weeks behind and he keeps getting running into nonfulfillment issues with his retailers. The bottom line is his retailers are getting frustrated. If it were not for the high quality of his widgets, his clients would run for the hills. But, James has many goals for his widget company. One is to increase his product line. To accomplish this goal, he must find a manufacturing software solution that is easy to use, offers deployment flexibility and streamlines operations. That sounds simple enough, right? It is with the proper tool. Most companies we see today are still trying to build their business with a manufacturing software solution that is not designed for their needs and has many complicated customizations. The problem with is, often these customizations cause upgrade nightmares.
