Specialist manufacturing software to grow your business

Deliver quality products to meet customers’ demands and minimise risk with flexible manufacturing ERP software.

What is the difference between ERP and MRP software?

Both ERP and MRP software are designed to help your manufacturing business run smoothly.

Enterprise resource planning (ERP) software allows you to effectively manage your resources. It gives you a complete overview of your planning, inventory management, sales, finance and people management.

Manufacturing resource planning (MRP) software is tied into your manufacturing processes. It can help identify inefficiencies in the supply chain and provide data to help you implement better solutions.

Put simply MRP is manufacturing ERP software developed specifically for the manufacturing industry, to help you control operations, ensure the delivery of consistent quality goods, and take advantage of new commercial opportunities.

Top challenges manufacturers will face in 2020

Compliance, lack of oversight and increasingly complex supply chains are some of the challenges faced by manufacturers. With the right software, you can:

  • Protect your business against catastrophic recalls. Recent legislation in many countries has given government departments increased power to intervene with manufacturers’ operations and easily demand product recalls and withdrawals.
  • Put an end to poor decision-making skills. Knowing and understanding your business can be a challenge even at the most productive times. With complete, accurate and on-the-spot, up-to-date data, you can make smarter decisions.
  • Stay in control of your entire supply chain. With a fast and accurate manufacturing ERP system it’s easy to track progress. Keep on top of key factors like costs, demand forecasting, production downtime and inventory excess.
