Over the past year and a half, manufacturers faced major issues when product demand increased, and insufficient raw materials affected the global supply chain. In addition, using inefficient systems increases the risk of not meeting customer demands, especially when workforce is reduced. However, with the right ERP system, processes can be automated to improve efficiency and reduce overhead costs.

Are the below manufacturing challenges familiar?

  • Tracking all overhead production costs
  • Disparate systems creating delays and increasing overhead costs
  • Easily communicating with customers/suppliers via E-Commerce portal
  • Difficulty with automating processes
  • Staying compliant with GDPR and HMRC
  • System is vulnerable to cyber attacks

If the answer is yes to any of those challenges, then feel free to visit our web page.
It gives more information on these challenges and how they can be addressed with Business Central.
