Why Choose a New Cloud ERP Solution?

Everybody’s getting lean. Manufacturers have known for some time that in order to compete locally or globally, be profitable and grown their companies, they need to adapt lean manufacturing techniques to reduce waste, increase efficiency, sustain continuous process improvement, ensure product quality and support just-in-time manufacturing. Lately these firms have been embracing cloud ERP in their efforts to get lean. Why are manufacturers choosing cloud-based ERP solutions? First, many of these firms have discovered that legacy ERP systems are simply too expensive, difficult to use and don’t grow with their company. Sure, some legacy, on-premise ERP vendors are promising some cloud-based functionality, but often these are bolted-on afterthoughts in an effort to get some of the cloud ERP market share. A true cloud-based ERP solution is one that is designed and implemented in the cloud and takes advantage of storage, real-time access and mobility benefits that the cloud provides. Cloud ERP’s ability to provide real-time access to critical data allows firms to track every step and component in their supply chain. For example, firms can use cloud ERP to track production, receiving, yields and efficiency, and their production workers can then access this data in real time on their smartphones. […]

5 Steps to Evaluate a Cloud ERP Solution

Manufacturers have been moving to the cloud, looking for new and innovative ways to succeed in the global marketplace. But there are so many vendors offering cloud ERP software with seemingly similar features that is difficult to differentiate between them. The pressures of the business can cause an organization to rush into a solution without fully evaluating it, resulting in costly problems down the road. Manufacturers can make the right choice by following these important steps when evaluating cloud ERP solutions: 1. Gather Business Requirements Knowing your requirements is the most important step in the cloud ERP evaluation process. This step should not be rushed. Your organization has pain points – what are they? Your customers have changing needs – how have they and how will they change over the next several years? What functions does your business absolutely need that your current system cannot perform? During this step, management and IT should meet to identify your firm’s high-level goals, and then get opinions from all stakeholders, from vice presidents and managers to production workers and office staff. Once you have gathered all of your business requirements, it is helpful to rank them as must-haves or nice-to-haves. When you start […]

Why High-Tech and Electronics Manufacturers Need Manufacturing Cloud ERP, Not Typical Cloud ERP

Cloud computing, more commonly known as “the cloud,” is all about delivering computing resources such as data and applications on demand over the Internet. The cloud uses a network of remote servers hosted on the Internet to store, manage and process data. Extremely large amounts of processing power and storage are instantly available anytime and anywhere and the ability to scale up or down as needed is a big advantage to manufacturing firms. The high-tech and electronics industry has been among the first to gravitate to the benefits that come with cloud computing. “1st Light Energy is a very fast-growing company that is a leading installer of custom-designed solar energy for residential, commercial and public sector applications,” says Trey Lackey, director of IT and logistics at 1st Light Energy. “We have offices on both coasts and thousands of successful installations from Hawaii to Massachusetts. There is no question that we would not be as successful as we are without switching to a Cloud Salesforce AppExchange manufacturing ERP.” There is a word you might have skipped over in Lackey’s quote – “manufacturing.” Most Cloud ERP software is designed from an accounting or customer relationship focus. Lackey knew his company’s software needed […]
