ERP systems, especially for manufacturing companies, assist by providing visibility in all processes across all core departments. The flexibility of cloud-based ERP allows for seamless integration of workflows, improved traceability and security.

The advent of cloud computing has made ERP for manufacturing a key focus area. More than 50% of companies plan to make the switch to Cloud ERP within the next 5 years. Cloud ERP provides centralized data storage, seamless collaboration of processes and access to services and resources directly through the internet.

Below are 5 key benefits of cloud-based ERP for manufacturing companies:

1. Visibility

Manufacturers can use a single system to coordinate multiple operations with centralized visibility. Companies can then achieve much greater insight on what is happening or what will happen at each step of the manufacturing and supply chain processes.

2. Flexibility

The flexibility and the speed of deployment make manufacturing companies particularly well suited to cloud-based ERP solutions. As manufacturers embrace cloud ERP, they are finding new ways to take advantage of the scalability and cost reductions made available.

3. Productivity

Overall moving to the cloud allows manufacturing companies to integrate business processes with ERP systems more seamlessly and improves productivity of the workforce through ease of use. Data can be entered faster and easier. Your business receives more accurate data, in real-time so that decisions can be made quickly to help drive business growth.

4. Efficiency

Manufacturing cloud ERP modules represent every step in the manufacturing process to increase efficiencies, control costs and, ultimately, increase revenue. Seamlessly, manage sales orders by converting customer quotes into product orders. Manufacturing software helps companies plan what to buy and make in time to build products.

5. Mobility

Cloud ERP allows for management of manufacturing and supply chain operations to work with business operations from just about anywhere. Not only can you work from any device, you can operate globally with multiple currencies, languages and VAT handling.
