Are you looking for ways to increase your profitability?
A resurgence in manufacturing is building in the US, according to many industry analysts. The US manufacturing industry is rated for upcoming growth of more than 4 percent in the next 12 to 24 months.
How are you preparing your business to achieve great results during this resurgence? Many manufacturers use technology to lower costs, improve products and optimize supply chain performance. US industry spends almost 75 percent of R&D funds on product development, 20 percent on applied research, and 5 percent on basic science. The US manufacturing sector is evolving toward providing goods that either have a high-tech component or that are produced with technologically advanced equipment.
Additionally, many manufacturers in the market are now starting to invest in distribution technology and better logistics communication. Improved communication between suppliers and manufacturers also enables better production scheduling and product flow.
Are you leading manufacturing trends, or watching your competitors forge ahead? Working with an experienced technology partner can help you find and increase profit long term by automating processes and procedures that may be slowing you down.
For instance, if you are outsourcing, like many manufacturers, you need a way to make sure you are overseeing personnel needs before, during and after moves. Things like payroll, benefits, and review processes can be streamlined.
Another key area to consider when growing your business is developing strong sales channels. Developing and maintaining long-term relationships with repeat customers is a crucial part of marketing and sales, but with the proper software systems can be simplified with automated processes, lowering your long term costs of doing business.
