Big new orders and aggressive ramp-up schedules for production are great for the future of growing businesses, but managing the complexities of higher volumes can threaten companies’ ability to execute.  In this webinar, we will look at how cloud-based Enterprise Resource Planning systems are changing how companies do business across the industrial, automotive, and high-tech component manufacturing.   

We will discuss some of the change drivers encountered in these industry subsegments, challenges unique to these types of manufacturers, and how they can overcome obstacles and meet their growth ambitions through a modernization of their ERP systems and supporting solutions. 

In this webinar, we will look into how modernizing ERP can drive organizational growth and how cloud-based solutions can lower up-front costs and ease the rollout of new technology. Attendees will learn: 

  • Steps involve in rationalizing legacy processes against fit-to-standard cloud-based ERP best practices 
  • Necessary support required from vendors and partners to execute a move to a cloud-based ERP 
  • Methods of continued innovation and customization while working with a “clean core” ERP 
  • Future-proofing a cloud-based ERP and attracting talent through the use of the latest low-code and no-code technologies and the thoughtful application of ML technologies
