As the global market continues to evolve, manufacturing competition has grown fierce. Manufacturers must be agile to improve time to market (TTM) with an exceptional supply and demand balance. No matter how complex their supply chain, manufacturers are required to respond faster to change, reduce excess inventory, and cut costs. Even more importantly, your customers expect what you promised when you promised it.
To keep up in this complex market, Infor SyteLine can help manufacturers meet those demands and improve productivity-both in the office and on the shop floor. SyteLine is an end-to-end ERP solution for both discrete and process manufacturers, which includes predictive analytics, collaboration, lean production tools, and integration options. With this software, you can increase customer service, improve production and quality, and collaborate more effectively!
Meet Customer Demands with Ease
Customers are a key part of any business. If customers have a positive experience, they are likely to come back and give your business a positive recommendation; however, failing to meet their expectations results in lost profits. For manufacturers, this means easily meeting customers’ changing demands, and providing them with timely service is required to build and maintain strong relationships.
SyteLine improves the entire process of managing customer relationships at the lowest total cost of ownership. The software allows you to quickly provide quotes that include details of customer-specific product configuration and pricing. And before a quote is given or an order is committed, the custom or configured product is checked against supply, production, and engineering resource availability, ensuring the product meets the customer’s needs and can be made on time.
Additionally, the software is equipped with an order management functionality that lets you quickly create quotes with accurate product configuration and pricing, instantly access and commit product availability, and turn quotes into orders at the press of a button. While closed-loop interactions with customers facilitate the completion of follow-up tasks as promised, instant order validation guards against invalid configurations or pricing errors that could create delays.
Plus, on-the-spot order promising commits and aligns production schedules to meet customer deadlines rather than forcing customers to accept options that don’t meet their needs and risk losing their business.
Simplify Materials and Inventory Management
To make the best products at the best price, manufacturers must be able to keep track of inventories in multiple locations and easily find the best price for the materials they need. Otherwise, you run the risk of overpaying for inventory and losing money.
SyteLine makes the sourcing process simple. You can easily locate, reserve, and buy supplies and materials from multiple locations, vendors, customers, and company sites. The ERP system also gives you immediate visibility into accurate raw materials inventory in any warehouse, plant, or suppliers’ warehouses and allows you to transfer or order materials quickly in response to production needs. Thus, allowing you to easily place and plan orders for the best materials while staying within budget.
Improve Employee Collaboration
Collaboration is key to operating a successful, connected enterprise. That’s why we recommend a solution that makes it easy for employees to share data across departments. Without collaboration and easy data sharing, you risk department silos, where data is trapped or even lost.
SyteLine has role-based dashboards, metrics, and reports that are all easily accessible from a single, intuitive user interface, allowing employees to access needed information and work with other departments easily and at any time, streamlining their responsibilities and increasing productivity. SyteLine is also available for deployment in the cloud, so you and your employees can work from anywhere while still having access to your ERP system and critical information and documents.
Whether you’re an SMB with mixed-mode processes or an enterprise-size company with business models, Infor SyteLine can help you operate more efficiently. SyteLine gives your business the tools to meet customers’ demands with ease, collaborate more effectively, and improve production and quality.
