ERP Software Helps Manufacturers Rethink Business Processes

Sage 100: ERP Software for Better Manufacturing

ERP software such as Sage 100 offers manufacturing companies many benefits and helps them overcome some tough challenges. Healthcare, medical devices, pharmaceutical, and food manufacturing are all industries in which tough and seemingly ever-changing regulations force manufacturers to rethink their business processes frequently. ERP software can make it easier for you to handle regulations and achieve consistent, high-quality products.

Tracing Products through the Supply Chain

Manufacturers concerned about quality know that they must be able to trace products back through the supply chain. It’s not enough to know which batch items came from; they may need to trace batches back to ingredients. Having a robust ERP system as part of your business enables you to track every part of an order from raw ingredients through delivery.

Complete visibility into the supply chain is essential to prove compliance with regulations. Not only must you prove compliance for your company, but you may also be called upon to prove that suppliers are compliant with regulations. Knowing who you’re dealing with and what came into the supply chain when can be very helpful in the event of questions or problems.

Relevant Products Means Knowing Your Customer

Producing relevant, engaging, and salable products start with knowing what your customers want and need. Customer information helps you build products that meet and exceed their needs. But how do you track customer data at such a detailed level that it becomes helpful to your product development process?

ERP software can help. With CRM tools integrated into Sage 100, for example, you can learn more about your customers with the touch of a button. Previous orders, complaints and problems, and all communications with the customer can be archived and displayed so that you get a comprehensive picture of your customers. This, in turn, can be used to create products that sell better.

Finding Experienced People

Lastly, a major challenge faced by manufacturers is finding skilled people for key positions. As senior-level managers retire, it can be hard to find replacements.

Many companies have terrific people just waiting in the wings to take on more challenges. It can be difficult to identify them, however, without knowing their work history and interests. Sage 100 offers a feature-rich system that includes human resources modules for personnel tracking and staff planning. By using your ERP software for more than accounting, you’ll be able to find people within your company who may be ready to take on more responsibility and replace those who are retiring.
