Using ERP to plan, produce, and ship on time
Manufacturers can only survive and thrive by adapting to the changing needs of the market. As a manufacturer, you have to deal with both supply chain issues and manufacturing challenges. By implementing and fully using an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system, you can reduce time-to-market and control your manufacturing business from the first customer contact all the way through fulfillment and invoicing.
