There are a number of invaluable benefits to manufacturers by having an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system. ERP manufacturing software integrates and automates all areas of business (materials and inventory, production, operations and sales, accounting and finance, etc.) in a company so that every department relies on a single database. This information hub delivers accurate, real-time data that is crucial to the manufacturing company. It also allows manufacturers to proactively manage operations, prevent disruptions, and help users make better decisions in a shorter amount of time.
