Manufacturing Software Solutions Increase Company Efficiency

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - January 20, 2011) -  Manufacturing firms are spending a tremendous sum of money on manufacturing software to reduce costs and increase their company's productivity.

Manufacturers are constantly struggling to find new ways of reducing production costs so that they can offer their customers competitive prices.

From engineering and planning, through production and quality control, manufacturing software solutions provide businesses with the advanced technology to significantly increase efficiency, quality and profitability whilst at the same time minimising overheads.

Many companies today use mixed mode manufacturing software packages, which provide the flexibility to stay competitive, address customer needs and grow business.

Manufacturing software is continuously changing to keep up with modern technology. Steve Tattum, Product Manager of Sage ERP X3 & Sage Manufacturing, tells Manufacturing Digital of a number of trends that the company is currently tracking in both manufacturing and software.

"We need to look at how information is being delivered and what the next generation of consumers is actually used to using," he says.

Sage UK is a leading supplier of business software and services to 6.2 million customers worldwide. They offer a vast selection of manufacturing software solutions to help businesses of all sizes overcome the day-to-day practicalities of running a business.

In today's society, with iPad's and iPhone's being the most sought after presents at Christmas, information is mobile and portable. "We need to recognise this and deliver information to the users in a manner that is easy to use and easy to digest," explains Tattum. "Usability is really big."
