Complex Industry Demands Push ERP to Keep Up
According to this article, recent studies claims enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems used to manage the manufacturing, packaging, and transportation flow of many different kinds of goods may not be keeping up with ever-more complex demands being placed on those processes.
Some ERP systems may actually be leaving manufacturers with disjointed and inadequate technology and reducing enterprise agility. Manufacturers today demand an ERP solution that changes easily as their business model is no longer static; it changes often and sometimes in a large scale.
Microsoft Dynamics® ERP solutions meet the scalability requirements that manufacturers demand. They work like and with familiar Microsoft software. They also automate and improve financial and supply-chain management in the following ways:
