Discover how Openbravo ERP and CYOP can help your company increase productivity,
eliminate re-keying of data, and improve reporting and accuracy of data.
A small, five-person manufacturer or distributor would have the same exact same functional needs as an IBM or General Motors in that they both need to order raw materials, receive them into a warehouse, manufacture a product, sell the product, deliver the product, invoice the customer, collect the money, and account for it all at the end of the year.
However, the small manufacturing company doesn't have the money, personnel, or skills to implement the traditional ERP solutions most all of which are cost-prohibitive to small businesses.
In fact, most small businesses don't even know where to begin when it comes to how to implement and ERP system!
As a result, many small manufacturers and distributors are forced to "piece together" their enterprise systems from multiple different vendors. This causes needless hours to be spent rekeying data from one system to the next, critical company information to be stored on individual PC's, or even worse, on pieces of paper and post-it notes, where the data is not available to others in the organization and cannot be accessed in real time.
These disparate systems not only increase support costs and lower customer satisfaction, but they also inhibit productivity due to the time and resources needed to compile simple but accurate management reports or even close the books every month.
By using Openbravo open source ERP software, small companies can now own a powerful ERP application at a fraction of the costs of proprietary ERP solutions that will drive revenue back to the bottom line and enable competition in today's global economy.
