Interconnected ERP systems can help to ensure that customers no longer have to wait months to order an unavailable product. Infrastructure management software will give you visibility to guarantee that you don’t have excessive overstock either.
An increased demand can cause issues in the production line – for instance, if there are a lot of orders but a limited number of people at the end of the line packing, then pressure can naturally result in general mistakes. Machines can be an aid across production lines and also support workforce wellbeing.
We recently worked with a brewing company who couldn’t scale due to these challenges. Barcoding technology was the solution – they could see what was in each package, and so would be made aware of an error before it was sent out to the customer. This was particularly valuable to them as they often received customised orders.
