The Benefits of ERP Software for Manufacturing & Distribution
Product manufacturing and distribution are closely linked, but distinct industries. Manufacturing is concerned with creating the products themselves – but distribution is concerned with buying from manufacturers, then warehousing and shipping them to B2B and B2C customers. However, ERP software can help both manufacturers and distributors by streamlining business processes and integrating data into a single, unified structure. Common features of ERP software for manufacturing and distribution include:
- Business process automation
- Paperwork and data collection automation
- Fleet management
- Inventory management
- Marketing tools
- Shipping & logistics software
However, when evaluating a manufacturing ERP software vendor, it’s important to make sure they provide these features and other essential features for manufacturing and distribution companies. Selecting the right solution is critical because investing in an ERP is time-consuming and can be expensive – and unless you choose a solution that provides high ROI (return on investment), your project may not help you fully realize your business goals.
