Sage 100cloud Manufacturing Services Get a Digital Transformation

Sage 100cloud Manufacturing Services Get a Digital Transformation

Find out the impact of digital transformation as Sage 100cloud manufacturing services expand to meet customer demand.

Manufacturers are facing a surprising uptick in the demand for more real-time order information from their customers. Find out why innovative manufacturers rely on Sage 100cloud. Sage 100cloud Operations Management enables manufacturers the ability to offer the manufacturing services customers expect on a reliable platform.

Benefits of Manufacturing Services

In a recent survey, most manufacturers surveyed (87%) currently offer intermediate-level services such as field service, product repair, condition monitoring, and a help desk. Nearly 66% said they are also offering advanced services including add-ons like pay-per-use, availability contracts, fleet management, and integrated solutions. Overall, a whopping 88% surveyed said they see services as a positive for their business, with 56% of those seeing a strong net positive for them.

For manufacturing companies, offering manufacturing services enables a range of financial benefits. According to the discrete manufacturing leaders that were surveyed, this includes:

  • Increasing share of wallet (71%)
  • Obtaining long-term contracts (63%)

Getting Your Head in the Cloud

The ability to offer these services is largely dependent on the sophistication and capability of the manufacturing operations systems. Imagine trying to offer real-time production updates when all you have are spreadsheets and email. At the core of the change manufacturers are and have been undergoing, is a dependency to update manufacturing operations to enable them to transform the way they offer new services in the near future. The cloud can enable all of this for smaller business, without requirement investments in infrastructure, R&D, and IT with little return.

And manufacturers already in the cloud will tell you it's a great way to improve profitability with the shift from CAPEX to OPEX business models. However, the road to digital transformation isn't always easy.  Of the manufacturers surveyed with at least one cloud application in their operations, as many as 73% admitted it is challenging, or extremely challenging, to introduce cloud computing infrastructure or applications into operations.

The Hybrid Approach

In some cases, a hybrid approach to ERP is optimal for smaller companies. It's possible to get the benefits of cloud while getting the option to keep certain processes in-house. This way, you can easily configure and securely manage the technology to your needs so you can offer the smoothest and most reliable services.

In fact, a hybrid approach featuring cloud-based solutions to fuel your digital transformation can actually have much lower costs than the traditional approach. It also allows smaller companies to offer services that only larger players with complex infrastructures could once offer.
