Guide to Succeed with Supply and Demand and Manufacturing ERP

Growing manufacturers rely on balancing supply and demand. As a manufacturer, you know too little or too much inventory is bad for business. Optimizing inventory levels to minimize costs while maximizing opportunities is the key. Of course, it’s not easy to know what’s the right amount of inventory to predict what you are going to need when you are going to need it. This is especially true when you struggle with manual processes and disconnected systems. Successful manufacturers have learned over the years to invest in technology to help. Keeping your supply and demand in balance with automated integrated tools eliminates the errors associated with human related redundant data entry and other manual processes.

Whitepaper: What Do Manufacturers Look for in ERP Software?

Choosing new manufacturing ERP software that includes great general ledger, accounts payable, cash management, etc., is fairly easy. Decision makers should look for features like easy inter-company transactions perhaps for a complicated process, great reporting and drill-down capabilities. The manufacturer has a much greater challenge. In the last 20 years I have been selling manufacturing solutions and nine times out of ten, the business leaders are not concerned with how the GL or any of the financial modules work. They ask if the software has financial modules and do they work. Often our demonstrations end with financials, or we schedule them for another day, since really what the prospect wants to see is how the software will handle their manufacturing operations.

I came across this whitepaper by Nick Castellina, the VP and Research Group Director at the Aberdeen Group and thought I would share some of the results of a survey focused on manufacturing leaders: What do Manufacturers Look For in an ERP Solution? I have been following Nick's work for a long time. He provides insightful information for the manufacturing and distribution industries.

These systems can range from a custom database for operations, and QuickBooks for accounting, or software that even I have never heard of.  The focus of the business has been developing a customer base and ensuring plant equipment and inventory as the top priority.  They are talking to me because they are in pain due to the lack of the tools needed to do business in today's world.  Why not start with a decent software solution at the before your huge growth cycle?  This really has not been possible until now with the cloud ERP solutions like Acumatica a FULL featured business software that can be used on ANY device.  Please read on...
