Frequently asked questions

Is Excel an ERP?

No, Excel is a robust business tool, but it is not an ERP system. There are several drawbacks with Excel, including data security and accuracy, limited connectivity, potential human errors, and inefficiency, which make it unsuitable to serve as an ERP system within a manufacturing environment.

A fully integrated solution like an ERP provides manufacturers with better data control and enhances critical business processes and decision-making, leading to smoother and more efficient operations.

What is a "magic spreadsheet"?

A “magic spreadsheet” refers to a master spreadsheet, typically managed by a single individual, which manufacturers often rely on to manage their business operations. Despite its nickname, it is not magical and is an inadequate method for organizing and overseeing a custom manufacturing shop. Avoid using such spreadsheets, and opt fo an ERP system to ensure optimal organization and efficiency.

How can I manage projects better with an ERP?

Implementing an ERP system can significantly improve your overall operational efficiency by streamlining processes and ensuring projects are completed on time.

An ERP system effectively manages all facets of your manufacturing operations, including inventory, scheduling and so much more, giving you the ability to oversee your entire shop and allows for better planning and execution of projects. Real-time data lets you monitor and manage every project you are working on, and deliver jobs on time and within budget.
