Industrial Equipment Manufacturers face complex business challenges. Especially Now.

It’s always been difficult to effectively manage parts, production, people, and products. And today, in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s even harder. Supply chains continue to be unsettled. Distribution channels are disrupted. Costs are rising.

The solution – in good times and bad – is to become more efficient: Fix broken business processes. Eliminate workarounds and manual make-dos. Integrate core systems. Control inventory spend. Streamline the supply chain. Reduce overall costs and improve cash flow. Achieve transparency and visibility into every aspect of operations.

To do these things, you need the right ERP solution. But what is the best solution for your organization?

That’s the challenge. Because answers can turn into more questions. Because every organization is different. And because no company handles any phase of operations – estimating, configuration, orders, changes, planning, manufacturing, quality, purchasing, inventory, distribution, shipping, sales, and field service – the same way.
