Production management software

Control your bottom line with accuracy

Work smarter with production management software

In a rapidly changing environment, how can you grow your manufacturing business while managing costs and increasing profitability? In the past, traditional enterprise resource planning (ERP) software was effective. Today, enterprise management software that has been created specifically for manufacturing businesses will help you control operations, ensure the delivery of consistent quality, and take advantage of new commercial opportunities.

Discrete manufacturing

With discrete manufacturing software, you can streamline your processes and manage your operations more effectively – from procurement and scheduling to inventory and sales – enabling you to consistently deliver innovation.

Having software that has been designed specifically for your industry gives you a competitive advantage. Whether it’s automotive manufacturing software or an ERP or MRP for furniture production you need, make sure it has been designed to address the unique challenges you face.

Process manufacturing

It’s impossible to streamline your operations when your ERP, CRM, and supply chain processes are siloed.

Ageing infrastructure, high costs, reduced lead times and a need for improved visibility continue to make the environment a tricky one for process manufacturers. In recent years, the industry has also been affected by the introduction of environmental and safety standards that require additional management and controls, not to mention the pressure to improve customer satisfaction.

Modern MRP systems will help your business attract new customers and increase profits

Guarantee quality

Minimise the risk and scope of a recall by ensuring the consistent quality of your products while maintaining the flexibility to act on any opportunity. Always meet or exceed the high standards of your customers, and adapt to compliance requirements.

Keep costs controlled

Custom manufacturing accounting software enables you to gain control over work order details and deeper insights into your production costs so you can see where to cut spend and save money faster.

Satisfy more customers

MRP systems allow you to respond faster to shifting customer demands and improve the management of fluctuations in purchasing, production, and shipping. Accelerate responses to inquiries and requests with accurate product costing and pricing.

Challenges faced by manufacturers today

Challenge #1 No real-time view
It goes without saying that you want the most up-to-date information possible when forecasting or making important financial decisions.


Automating manual, error-prone financial tasks such as expense filing while processing data as soon as it becomes available for real-time insights.
Challenge #2 Siloed data
To unlock insights from this data and compete effectively in today’s markets, the ability to combine different datasets for analytics purposes is essential.

Switching to a ‘data-first’ model opens significant opportunities to adapt to the buying habits of your customers while identifying overarching trends for long-term strategic development.
Challenge #3 Poor visibility
Knowing where orders and deliveries are in the supply chain is vital for maximising revenue, reducing slowdowns and improving customer experience.

Cloud tech, on the other hand, offers useful insights across global supplier networks. Supplier quality management features offer real-time updates on the latest shipments, reduce costs, guarantee quality and increase customer satisfaction.
Challenge #4 Inventory control
A major challenge for many manufacturing businesses is the lack of visibility into inventory levels, caused by data silos and real-time updates – and the poor customer experience this causes.

ERP provides the capability you need to keep on top of what inventory you have and what you’re expecting. Using one system for all warehouse locations avoids data silos, so you know what you truly have in stock at all times (and don’t miss out on opportunities to sell because inventory isn’t universally accessible).
Challenge #5 Technology
Manufacturers suffer due to legacy systems that silo data, reduce collaboration and can’t provide real-time visibility into key design and production processes.

Cloud-based predictive maintenance uses Internet of Things (IoT) sensors to collect data on your equipment. By doing so, it can alert you in advance of potential breakdowns so you can fix issues quickly. This can save hours or days of unexpected downtime and keep the production of new products efficient.
