The way we produce and consume is changing. A shift towards advanced manufacturing brings with it equal weight in opportunity and challenge. 

Geopolitical tensions, governmental regulations, environmental policies, supply chain upheaval –  it’s a volatile landscape for even the most established manufacturers, with potentially major implications for cycle times, throughput and Return on Assets.

An evolving market requires innovative inventory management, new sourcing strategies and decision making informed with real-time data.

Case Study

Taking a legacy of manufacturing excellence into the future

For more than half a century, RBM Plastics has specialised in custom plastic profiles and extrusions. A privately owned family company, it’s become one of the largest plastic extrusion manufacturers in Australia. So when demand for their products and services tripled in recent years, leadership realised they needed to invest in technology – rather than more back-office staff – in order to meet growing needs. Here’s how Wild Tech worked to understand RBM Plastics’ unique operating environment, before sourcing and implementing the ideal software technology solution.

Pillars For






Your manufacturing business needs to be able to respond quickly to emerging opportunities and challenges. A growing combination of global influences demand your company to be swift and responsive to any and every scenario.

Today’s manufacturers must prioritise:

Efficient Response

Manufacturers must respond quickly to fluctuating demands and scenarios in the global marketplace.

Streamline Processes

Simplified business processes reduce complexities and increase productivity.

Cloud-Based Scalability

Success in the manufacturing industry depends on the ability to scale processes with ease.

Complete Control

Control over component production and demand-driven capacity planning is vital for sustainable growth.


Manufacturers are consistently expected to exceed standards in quality, design and function, but in accelerated timeframes and shorter lead times. Today’s manufacturer needs to be able to reduce inefficient processes and achieve more with less.

Enhance your productivity with:

Resource Optimisation

Get more out of your resources and maximise throughput with greater efficiency.

Workforce Scaling

Scale your workforce capabilities, ensuring you have the skills and capacity to meet growing production demands.

Demand Management

Fine-tune your production scheduling and forecasting processes, aligning production with market needs.

Speed to Market

Capitalise on emerging opportunities swiftly and gain a competitive advantage.


Complete business transparency is integral to enabling efficient processes and communication. Modern manufacturers need full visibility of work in progress (WIP), product quality, material sourcing, labour and safety practices. 

Elevate your processes with:

360-Degree Visibility

Gain 360-degree visibility across key functions including finance, purchasing, sales, distribution, and operations.

Seamless Communications

Facilitate seamless information flows to enhance communication and collaboration among your teams.

Actionable Insights
