How the Right ERP Can Help Simplify the Ever-Changing Business of Manufacturing

The manufacturing sector is entering a new era that requires critical responsiveness. 

Organizations must be able to turn data into intelligence and insights to better support real-time decision making. ERP systems originally intended to automate business activities and improve productivity can start to lag over time, causing operational performance to drag.

Legacy ERP systems built a decade or more ago met the needs of a very different generation of users. Many manufacturers began adding new technology to meet new requirements, which resulted in “complexity creep.” Complexity creep is akin to a virus that infects the ERP system impeding responsiveness and agility, and prevents organizations from reaching their optimal performance.

Manufacturers must have the right ERP system in place in order to move forward in this new manufacturing era.
