3 Ways to Improve Your Discrete Manufacturing Process

3 Ways to Improve Your Discrete Manufacturing Process

Make Products Faster and Reduce Costs with Sage 100cloud

Now more than ever, it’s critical to find ways to improve your discrete manufacturing process. The most successful teams are constantly seeking new ways to make products faster, improve business processes, and reduce costs. We outline 3 ways to improve your discrete manufacturing process.

If your company is using disconnected systems, basic accounting applications like QuickBooks, and manual processes, it is time to look for an automated business management solution.  Sage 100cloud enables you to share information more easily, accelerate turnaround times, and automate time-wasting, manual tasks.

Robust solutions, like Sage 100cloud, should help your discrete manufacturing team operate more efficiently, deliver innovative and high-quality goods, and ultimately accelerate growth and revenue. Here are 3 ways you can improve your discrete manufacturing processes.

Improvement #1 Increase Responsiveness

Manufacturers are looking to collaborative tools to inspire dynamic problem solving. These tools facilitate knowledge-sharing between employees, suppliers, partners, and customers. Your company's stakeholders need easy ways to share information, knowledge, and ideas, and with Sage 100cloud they will be able to spot trends and opportunities. 

Cloud-connected business management solutions like Sage 100cloud offer low initial costs, faster implementation, and easy upgrades that keep IT expenses in control. Down the line, it will be easy to adopt and scale new applications or modules as your company grows.

Improvement #2 Faster Decisions

Make faster decisions using the large volumes of data you’re accumulating. If your company is still relying on spreadsheets or disconnected systems for business intelligence, you know too well that converting the data into meaningful insights is so time-consuming that it's nearly impossible.  

With Sage 100cloud, you get the ability to analyze your business and keep a proactive eye on your operations. Business intelligence capabilities such as exception alerts, triggers, and predictive analytics make this easy for you. Sage 100cloud will unite your manufacturing and unstructured data to deliver previously hidden insights.

Improvement #3 Remote Workforce

It's easier to maintain business continuity if you have mobile access so your team can work wherever they have internet access. Access to real-time information can make all the difference to your team, enabling them to make informed decisions based on up-to-date information. Your team also gets mobile access to information from tablets, smartphones, or other mobile devices right on the shop floor. The ability to access real-time information and analytics enhances productivity, increases operating efficiency, promotes visibility, and ultimately decreases costs. 

Bonus Improvement! The Right Partner

Often underestimated is the long-term support required post implementation so be sure to check that your consultant offers training, customization, ongoing and upgrade support, and integration capabilities. 

As well, a great partner should proactively create awareness of new add-ons to increase the sophistication of your discrete manufacturing solution so your software continues to support your business with new time savings and automations. In most cases, your consultant should offer customizations including custom development for companies with highly unique needs or business processes.
