In “NAM Survey Shows High Level of Business Optimism,” an article posted on MDM.com, a recent survey of manufacturers revealed high levels of optimism with their company’s outlook. American manufacturers are making higher volumes of high quality products more than ever before. This upward trend can lead to new jobs and business growth. However, concerns with regulatory compliance, taxes, and other Washington policies are casting a shadow on bright futures. Don’t let these unknowns darken your door, control them with the right business management solution.
If you are one of the manufacturers that are reporting an elevated level of optimism, then you must have a good handle on your business operations. The more control you have over your business and the more visibility you have with your data, the more confident you must be with your operations. On the other hand, if you aren’t as confident as your competitors, then your business technology may not be as supportive as you may think. It may be time to implement a more powerful enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution.
There can be a lot of unknowns with managing the business today, especially if you are using disparate, specialty software programs. Piecing data together from various sources can be time-consuming, as well as challenging. If you aren’t confident in your data, then you can’t be confident with your strategic business decisions. An integrated ERP solution, such as Epicor® ERP, can provide both the control and insight you need to turn those ‘unknowns’ into ‘knowns’. You can use this solution to manage finances, supply chain, inventory, manufacturing and distribution operations, and other core business processes. You can enter and access key data much easier and more efficiently within this single software solution. In addition, you can analyze your data and use the built-in business intelligence to make sense of it.
