We’ve outlined some of the key advantages of ERP for manufacturing companies. Here’s a detailed summary of how a cloud-based ERP system can provide multiple benefits for your manufacturing business.
Affordability – By opting for cloud-based manufacturing software, you can keep upfront outgoing costs low as there’s no hardware cost to factor in. That’s taken care of by Wild Tech as your solutions partner. Without the need for hardware, you can free up physical space and reduce your energy costs. A cloud-based system is also less labour intensive and doesn’t require a dedicated in-house IT team to carry out regular maintenance. Many businesses also experience an increase in workplace productivity due to more streamlined processes.
Agility – ERP for small manufacturers is ideal due to its flexibility and quick implementation time. For businesses that may be more sensitive to change, the minimal disruption offered by a cloud-based ERP for manufacturing allows you and your organisation’s employees to focus on service delivery without the stress of a lengthy changeover of operational processes. Microsoft D365 for manufacturers also allows for easy adoption as it offers user-friendly interfaces and intuitive experience. The true flexibility of a cloud-based ERP system for manufacturing is demonstrated in its remote access. The only requirement for users is an internet connection and they can access the software from anywhere in Australia and beyond.
Reliability – Introducing an ERP system for your manufacturing company can help improve the consistency of your processes and reduce the margin for error when it comes to workflow scheduling and management. Tightening these processes means a reduction in potential financial inefficiencies.
Scalability – Another key advantage of Microsoft’s ERP software for small manufacturers is that it is customisable to expand in functionality alongside your business as it grows with the implementation of additional manufacturing ERP modules.
Transparency and Insights – ERP implementation in the manufacturing industry gives businesses the opportunity to truly harness the power of their organisation’s data. Through the housing of data in one central, remotely accessible location, you can collate your organisation’s Management Information and utilise it in order to make informed business decisions for future growth and development. KPI reporting becomes streamlined and performance measurement can be carried out regularly without the need for time-intensive manual number crunching. The process of test and learn has never been as accessible as it is with cloud manufacturing software.
