Reach your growth potential with manufacturing ERP software from Sage

Control costs, maintain quality and increase profitability for your manufacturing enterprise with a manufacturing ERP system.

Choosing the best manufacturing software


Manufacturers face an environment that’s rich in opportunity and highly demanding at the same time. As a result, they can come across a number of challenges, from meeting compliance demands and growing sustainability, to navigating shifting demand patterns.


With these in mind, when choosing and implementing an MRP or ERP system, you need to be confident your software fits with the unique features of both your industry and manufacturing process.


Discrete manufacturing

Discrete manufacturers assemble products such as automotive, aerospace or electrical parts. To better manage your business and supply chain as a discrete manufacturer, you need visibility and insight into things like costs and inventory. MRP software from Sage can help boost your agility, responsiveness and flexibility for discrete manufacturers.

Process manufacturing

This category includes companies that develop food, cosmetics, chemicals and paints. Our powerful MRP solution helps process manufacturing companies take control of costs and mitigate risk.

Achieve ERP integration

In addition to manufacturing type, businesses should select an ERP that’s been designed with their specific requirements in mind, matching their size and scalability. Keep in mind that some ERPs are especially designed for the needs of small businesses, which means you’re not having to pay extra for modules or functions that your enterprise doesn’t require.
