It’s a well-known fact, that manufacturing is one of the biggest industries in Canada, which makes up almost 12% of Canada's national GDP. The industry is still growing, and manufacturing companies need modern software to ensure maximize growth potential. Here are three more reasons why manufacturers should consider an ERP system:
1. Enhanced Communication between Departments
Communication is a crucial factor for a manufacturing company, which has tens of different departments as well as a need to work efficiently. An ERP system can ensure effective communications between departments through connecting an entire company into one unified system.
2. Automated Processes
It’s no secret that manufacturing companies have complex operations. The bigger the company becomes – the more complex its operations are. ERP software becomes a need rather than a want because it automates daily tasks and provides accurate information to simplify business operations, like managing production orders, calculating costs or managing different versions of the manufacturing bills of materials.
3. Better Decision Making
An ERP system acquires tons of data to provide a decision-maker with useful insights. Available reports, KPIs, and forecasting features make the process of decision making much faster and more reliable. Moreover, you can personalize the information that you're getting from an ERP system to get the most accurate insights for your business.
