Does this sound familiar?
- You are frustrated with outdated, or poorly maintained machinery and outdated processes constantly causing delays within your business.
- The lack of automation across your key processes is creating chaotic inefficiencies but you are unsure of how to make the switch from manual processes.
- Poor forecasting means that you are struggling to have the correct components and materials stored, ready for use or you are tying up crucial capital by over-ordering items. By not using real-time data and forecasting solutions available to you, it is nearly impossible to monitor, and make long-term plans based on customer behavior and industry trends.
We had many manual and cumbersome processes. This caused a long response time in quoting make-to-order products and did not facilitate real-time analytics. Now, we have significant improvement in the turnaround time of product costing. It’s a huge time-saving benefit for our customer service staff, who can now provide customers with a price without having to spend time creating a new part in the system.
