Manufacturing ERP – Streamline Your Operations
This post is for small to mid-sized manufacturers that are vetting new manufacturing software.
Selecting your Manufacturing ERP is crucial and will include decisions about cost, scope, and capabilities. It’s also important to choose a system that meets your unique needs and is also easy to use for staff.
You may want to consider on-premise software which can save on a hosted solution over time, as desktop software requires a one-time licensing fee and a nominal charge for annual updates.
Small to mid-sized companies may find software designed for large enterprises to be expensive and cumbersome.
It’s important to choose a system that is not burdensome or one that is too small to perform the necessary business functions for your company.

Benefits of Automation
An effective system can replace outdated software or manual tracking to minimize redundant entry and increase functionality and analytics.
You can implement just-in-time inventory to ensure that you have materials on hand when you need them and gain better visibility of your shop floor.
Eliminate “fragmentation” which happens when a company stores data in various spreadsheets or separate software systems that are not integrated. This requires redundant data entry and manual reconciliation.
