Business software solutions, also called Enterprise resource planning (ERP), are designed to help companies collect, store, manage and interpret data. According to “The Unified Manufacturing Environment: Transparency, Collaborations, and Decision-Making with End-to-End ERP”, it is used by a staggering 97% of leading manufacturing organizations to help business management operations run more efficiently, but it can also be hinder operations. Using a standard ERP program can make it difficult to get the full picture of your business operations when not integrated with other important company data, such as production scheduling, manufacturing execution and order management. Without a complete view of the state of your company, it can make it hard to properly communicate, collaborate and keep up with compliance. For this reason, many top manufacturing companies have moved from using an ERP program with a host of other business management programs to a single ERP software that can do it all.
