Ensure the reliable quality your customers demand while minimising risk with Sage business management ERP software for manufacturing.

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, business management software 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.

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 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

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

Instruments and related products

The top challenges Singaporean manufacturers will face in 2019

Many manufacturers are facing challenges like compliance, lack of oversight, and increasingly complex supply chains in 2019. The good news? With the right ERP software for the manufacturing industry, you can:

Protect your business against catastrophic recalls

Recent legislation in many parts of the world has given government agencies greater power to intervene with manufacturers’ operations, and to demand product recalls and withdrawals more easily. Consumers have also become much more demanding of manufacturers, ready to react when their expectations aren’t met. In addition, thanks to communications technology and social media, they’re able to raise their concerns instantly and very publicly.

Put an end to poor decision-making

Getting detailed insight into your business can be a challenge at the best of times, and manufacturers who lack complete, accurate, and up-to-the-minute data can face significant obstacles in making timely decisions. 

Which product is most profitable? Which supplier has the most delays? How much cash is tied up in inventory excess, and how much could you invest in growing your business? Without the answers to these questions, many businesses end up making poor strategic decisions, resulting in costly mistakes.

Stay in control of the entire supply chain, no matter how complex 

Managing supply chains is a constant challenge for manufacturers. In addition to staying on top of the key factors, such as costs, demand forecasting, production downtime, and inventory excess, supply chain partnerships are continually changing. 

What happens if your supplier’s shipment is delayed? What if supply costs increase without warning? Without a fast and accurate manufacturing ERP system to track progress or communicate, you might not be able to avoid production downtime or plan an alternative manufacturing schedule without hurting your business.
