Webinar — What is ERP, Why Do I Need It, and Which One is Right for My Manufacturing Business?

For manufacturing companies, software functionality is at the core of any selection process. While there are stand-alone manufacturing software packages available, the best manufacturing solutions are tightly integrated into a centralized ERP system. What's right for your business?

Presenter: Wally Tonra, Vice President Sales

The functionality of manufacturing software varies based on your industry focus and the production process you use, such as

  • Discrete Manufacturing — measured by numeric quantities
  • Process Manufacturing — measured by weight or volume
  • Engineer-to-Order Manufacturing
  • Make-to-Order Manufacturing
  • Make-to-Stock Manufacturing
  • Mixed-mode Manufacturing
  • Job Shop / Contract Manufacturing

In this webinar, we'll explore what specific ERP functionality production experts tell us they need for modern — and modernizing — manufacturers.

Manufacturing companies have long used ERP systems to streamline operations, address customization requirements, and manage complicated supply chains in order to build profitable, sustainable businesses. Your company must be particularly careful about choosing an ERP system flexible enough to meet specific operational processes and functional requirements.

Webinar — What is ERP, Why Do I Need It, and Which One is Right for My Distribution Business?

If your company is operating in a wholesale distribution environment, you need specific business software functionality. While virtually all ERP software solutions have some distribution functionality, not all offer the features you need to manage complex supply chain channels.

 

Date: Wednesday, September 9, 2015
Time: 1:15 pm / Eastern Time (GMT-05:00-US & Canada)
Cost: Complimentary
Presenter: Tom Atkins, Senior Engineer — Distribution

In this webinar, we'll review what experienced distributors say they need specifically for the electrical, HVAC, plumbing and industrial wholesale distribution market.

Your wholesale distribution company will be concerned with software functionality that focuses on maintaining optimal inventory levels, facilitating quick movement of goods, providing strong "front office" functionality for customer service personnel, and delivery flexible reporting for management. During your ERP selection process, you'll want to look beyond simple features and expand into validating if the distribution software functionality offers advanced features such as fully-integrated CRM functionality, warehouse management, strong financial management, and kitting and assembly capabilities for light manufacturing.

Selecting the right ERP system with the appropriate distribution software functionality will help you improve sales performance and organizational efficiencies while reducing costs and improving order and line item fill rates. It will help distribution companies succeed in any business environment.
