Why Manufacturing Software for Small Businesses & Mid-Sized Companies?
This post is for manufacturers with small businesses or medium sized companies. If you want to streamline your operations and grow your company, we hope you find this information useful.
PBS™ Manufacturing is a complete system that can scale up or down to meet your company’s unique needs.
Better Inventory Planning
Inventory costs money, plain and simple. The more inventory you are carrying, the more cash assets you are tying up. This is an important consideration for the medium sized or small manufacturing company.
There is a balancing act a manufacturer must play where they carry sufficient inventory to keep customer service levels up while at the same avoiding the trap of purchasing too much of the wrong inventory.
To achieve this balance, you need a good material planning system to aid you in making the right buying decisions.
Improved Order Management
PBS™ Manufacturing provides scheduling tools that enable you and your staff to know what needs to be worked on and when. You can manage capacity on the shop floor and can see where any job is at any given moment.
Our manufacturing software for small businesses and mid-sized companies can help you keep production flowing smoothly – and keep orders going out the door on-time.
The level of detail of your data reporting in and out of the system is completely up to you allowing you to attain the level of control you desire.
Better Production Scheduling
A wonderful ‘side effect’ of implementing PBS Manufacturing software can be reduced product lead-times.
When you are buying the right material at the right time, and scheduling production in a manner that best utilizes your manufacturing resources, you will find that more often than not, you can get product out the door faster.
This leads to higher customer service levels and can make you more competitive in your industry.
Better Cost Tracking
Many companies rely on their financial statements to determine if they are profitable on a monthly, quarterly and annual basis. If you’re waiting until data has made it to your financial statements, it’s probably too late.
PBS Manufacturing can aid you by increasing your visibility, allowing you to see exactly which products are making you money and which ones are costing you money.
This can allow you to adjust pricing, and in some cases, could lead to dropping product lines that simply can’t be profitable. The result can be significantly higher profits.
