Manufacturing For A New Generation. Why Change Is Long Overdue…

For many years the thought of using MRP or ERP software for a small or medium sized manufacturer was not an option – they were overly complicated and too expensive. However, with the rise of cloud based software has come a new breed of MRP system, perfect for small and medium manufacturers who face many of the same challenges that larger organisation do.

The passion for producing and selling products, which initially drove manufacturers to start their business, can often by dampened by operational issues. These issues often include problems with delivery times, cash flow, staff and being unable to satisfy customer demand.

MRP helps tackle these challenges by moving company data into a single system. Typically data is held on paper, in spreadsheets, on whiteboards or, quite often, simply in someone’s (usually the owner’s) head. By streamlining processes and recorded information in one place, customer orders can flow from sales, to invoicing and into production with ease.

Customers can be kept up to date with progress of orders and stock can be purchased in the right quantities and at the right time to fulfil demand accurately.

As this information flows into your finance system, accurate and real-time reports can be created to show your current financial position, your financial forecast and profitability of each area of your business – by product, project, department or as a whole.
