Use specialist manufacturing software to forge more profits

Ensure the reliable quality your customers demand while minimising risk with Sage software for manufacturers.

Manufacturing businesses need industry focused operations and accounting software planning

In a rapidly changing environment, how can you grow your manufacturing business while controlling costs and increasing profitability? 

In the past, traditional enterprise resource planning (ERP) software was effective. Today, enterprise management software that has been created specifically for manufacturing businesses will help you control operations, ensure the delivery of consistent quality, and take advantage of new commercial opportunities.

Transform your company by moving beyond ERP

By using specialist systems for your industry, particularly manufacturing resource planning software (MRP), you can gain a competitive advantage. Modern MRP systems will help your business attract new customers, increase profits and stay ahead of the competition.

Satisfy more customers

MRP systems allow you to respond faster to shifting customer demands and improve the management of fluctuations in purchasing, production, and shipping. Accelerate responses to inquiries and requests with accurate product costing and pricing.

Guarantee consistent quality

Minimise the risk and scope of a recall by ensuring the consistent quality of your products while maintaining the flexibility to act on any opportunity. Always meet or exceed the high standards of your customers, and adapt to compliance requirements.

Keep costs under control

Custom manufacturing accounting software enables you to gain control over work order details and deeper insights into your production costs so you can see where to cut spend and save money faster.

Discrete manufacturing software can help you handle inventory better, manage production costs, analyse product line profitability, and simplify operations.

Fabricated metal products

Producing high-quality metal products to exact specifications is challenging when faced with a competitive market dominated by fluctuating metal and energy costs, in addition to the global competition. Getting the best software for your business will allow you to manage resources, production schedules, and customer orders and tie them into your financial systems.

Industrial machinery and equipment

British manufacturing businesses must compete with machinery and equipment suppliers at home and abroad, so profitability is essential. Manufacturing enterprise management software will help you save money on inventory control and get more value from employees and assets.

Instruments and related products

With technology-intensive products and shortening product life cycles, it's vital to ensure capital investments return revenue to the business quickly. If you want to cut costs and improve cash flow, you need access to detailed information about every aspect of your business processes. With the right software, you can make timely decisions based on complete and accurate data.
