Manufacturing is a fiercely competitive business. Not only do you have to work with fluctuating customer demand and shrinking product life cycles, you also have to adapt to increasing global competition and comply with strict regulations. You’re under a significant amount of pressure to increase efficiency, differentiate products, and keep up with regulatory mandates.
The SAP Business One application can help you gain greater control over manufacturing operations by increasing visibility into the supply chain, automating key production processes, tracking compliance, and making it easier to focus on innovation and speed to market.
Besides running your core business functions such as sales and financials, SAP Business One can help you:
Optimize inventory management
Track inventory levels and stock movements in real time to minimize “stock-out” situations, increase goods availability, and reduce inventory-carrying costs. Also manage price lists, special pricing, and quotes.
Anticipate customer demand
Provide full past-transaction data so you can analyze customer buying behavior to predict demand more accurately and balance inventory levels accordingly.
Streamline the order-to-cash process
Automate key processes to improve efficiency across the order-to-cash cycle including order creation, stock-level updates, delivery, invoicing, and accounts receivable.
Tighten partner integration
Provide online self-service capabilities for customers and suppliers so they can view inventory availability, the status of orders and deliveries, and billing information.
