Published in The Business Post Midlands, Edition 94, p.35, August 2021

Manufacturers struggling to reconcile invoices, stock levels, orders, deliveries and their warehousing capacity, need help. All too often, keeping on top of paperwork can feel like an uphill battle.

There is a solution, and all at the touch of a button, in the form of Sage 00 ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning).

Sage 200 ERP, is a tried and tested technology solution very widely used throughout engineering and manufacturing. The software can be used to integrate finance, planning, purchasing inventory, sales, marketing, human resources, indeed, every detail of your entire organisation. If you also decide to utilise the power and security of the cloud that will give you real-time business intelligence and data integration from Sage 200 professional, whenever and wherever you are.

Think how beneficial it would be to you to have all your facts and figures at your fingertips, how much easier it would be to take advantage of deals on materials, make economies by rationalising deliveries, improve security, even improve GDPR compliance and smooth out your exports with updated modules to help with the new regulations.

Originally designed for enterprise-level businesses, ERP solutions add value to companies of all sizes by more efficiently monitoring and operating daily tasks. Enterprise planning software also reduces time spent on repetitive or overlapping activities by establishing a centralized database that coordinates interdepartmental data assignments and more effectively allocates resources. Even if your existing business processes operate smoothly, your company can still find value in the increased productivity and tighter budget control that an ERP system offers.

You will need a technology partner to make the switch, one who will take an in-depth look at your organisation, identify any bottlenecks and come up with a plan for discussion.
