How to Grow Your Manufacturing Company Without Adding People or Equipment

Posted Mon, July 8, 2013 by Julie Short

Conventional wisdom says that growing your manufacturing operation requires bigger inputs – usually in the form of capital, labor, or new equipment. But, what if there was a way you could make your business "bigger," growing your profits right along with it, without any of those investments?

That's not an impossible scenario. By installing or upgrading an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software package, you essentially get a bigger business than the one you have now, if only because you're getting more from the labor, cash, and equipment you already own.

In other words, an ERP system (which puts critical information about production schedules, input costs, supply  chain data, and more at your fingertips) makes every other part of your manufacturing operation more efficient. That means you can better manage costs, calendars, and even new customer opportunities in real-time.

Imagine having access to more detailed information about:

People and materials. When delivery deadlines are tight, you want to know which employees you need, where key inputs are located, and what kinds of potential problems might hold up delivery dates. Within ERP, you have full visibility of every important factor, so you can deal with any issues – even those relating to costs – before they become limiting problems.

Work and delivery schedules. In manufacturing, the "when" is just as important as the "where" or "how." That's why our advanced ERP systems feature detailed scheduling and forecasting options, so you can combine them with budgets, input lists, and other tools to make sure that times, locations, and finances all add up the way they should.

Bottlenecks and cost factors. Often, unexpected production bottlenecks end up being an anchor on your bottom-line performance, forcing you to give discounts and make other concessions because of delayed delivery dates. With the right ERP, you can anticipate virtually any kind of delay (sometimes even at the estimation and  proposal stage) to ensure on-time delivery or adjust your budget for accelerated production.

In any business, and especially manufacturing, you always get the biggest return on investment from optimizing what you already have, rather than purchasing more inputs. That's why our clients love ERP solutions that let them squeeze more efficiency from their operations without big investments and equipment, industrial space, etc.

To see firsthand how the right ERP can transform your manufacturing company – and your bottom line – call or e-mail a member of our team today and ask for a no-obligation demo of our packages.
