One area currently appearing on the radar screen for many manufacturers is the ability to jettison third-party software applications, such as accounting and financial software, and perform those functions within their ERP systems. And with good reason. An ERP system with a fully-integrated accounting module offers many important benefits that can save time and money while simplifying backroom administrative processes.
Long gone are the days of having a set-up machinist who can program at the machine and trouble shoot through a job. Today more than ever, machine shops are focusing on the technology and not necessarily on man labor. The better the equipment and software, the less man power. Is your machine shop prepared for this shift in manufacturing ways? Is purchasing ERP software your answer?
Let’s start by identifying the way you manage the day-to-day activities of your business. Do you have the ability to quote from a system, create orders that will drive labor and material orders? Can you manage your inventory, whether it is raw stock or finished goods? And at the end of the day do you know your financials down to the cent? Running off of Excel spreadsheets will only get you so far and leave you with a headache. A great Shop Management software is what will separate you from your competitors and provide you with all of the tools your business needs to meet your customer’s demands as they happen.
