ERP software ties together processes and functions within a manufacturing company and enables data to flow easily between them. This includes making quotations, processing sales orders, inventory management, procurement, production resource management and continues through to shipping and invoicing.
Integrating functions within a business using one software application provides many benefits to manufacturing companies.FEATURES
The sequence of processes that take place in a business are essentially what it does to make its product, satisfy its customers and make a profit once all the processes are completed.
In order to be successful, a smooth, efficient and orderly flow of information through these processes is required. Over time companies adopt spreadsheets, whiteboards, task lists and calendars to manage data, schedules and workflow. Often the only dedicated business software will be the accounts software. This kind of operation, particularly during growth can literally feel like the wheels are coming off – orders are missed, things go missing, stuff gets forgotten about! It quickly turns into a business just firefighting current issues. This can also affect employee morale and overall productivity.
