Data integration systems are critical in today’s manufacturing environment. In order to keep efficiencies up and customers happy, manufacturers must keep their data solutions current—and integrated.
Why? Ineffective systems can be a silent killer when it comes to productivity and lead to problems such as:
- Inaccurate information
- Disruption and delays in the supply chain
- Increase in overhead costs
See below for the critical warning signs that your data systems are losing strength.
Too many chargebacks
Wrong items, incorrect volumes, or misplaced labels can all result in chargebacks –a costly mistake for manufacturers. By implementing purpose-built software for your company, you can eliminate confusion and additional costs in your shipping process.
Tight delivery schedules can get bogged down with inefficient systems. By using automated proof-of-delivery systems, your field employees can capture delivery data quickly and accurately.
Systems that don’t talk to one another
Manufacturers that invest in ERP, WMS or other numerous management systems can face increasingly complex challenges due to the siloed nature of each piece of software. Integrating systems or combining the data and functionality of numerous systems into one means greater productivity and less wasted time.
Outdated and unsupported software will always impose productivity and efficiency concerns. Ensure you have a migration path for all unsupported software will help keep workflows and communication going on your shop floor.
