No matter the product type, all manufacturing companies share a common set of operational needs that have to be met for them to reach their business goals, stay competitive, and build long-lasting customer relationships.

Today’s manufacturers are in a tough position. Economic forces are wreaking havoc on profit margins. Labor is increasingly expensive. Raw materials are also going up in cost and suppliers are shifting. Fuel costs are becoming more unpredictable and erratic.

To survive and thrive, it’s time to take a new look at your business. Manufacturers must coordinate and align their teams and processes at every step, share data, and maintain an effective feedback loop for everything from planning and forecasting to managing production, inventory, sales, distribution, and customer service. The degree to which manufacturers are able to streamline their operations and improve productivity has a direct impact on the quality of their customer relationships, business partnerships, and ability to scale. It makes sense, then, that a growing number of manufacturing companies are turning to new technologies and systems, for customer relationship management (CRM) and workflow automation, to drive efficiency, team productivity, and, ultimately, profitability.
