Covid-19 has drastically affected the way we do business.  Manufacturers have been forced to revamp how they manage their operation pipeline from order entry to product delivery and more than 75% of Manufacturers say that Covid-19 has caused their companies to re-evaluate their operating strategies.

The pandemic has created a sudden reliance on and acceptance of remote working arrangements.  Shifting as much work as possible off-site, and using real-time data solutions, coupled with advances in artificial intelligence technology, as well as remote diagnostic, management, and collaboration tools will help manufacturers to oversee operations using a remote workforce.  The capability to work remotely has become a manufacturing tool of the future.

ERP Cloud-based Systems, such as Acumatica Cloud ERP, will play a crucial role in helping manufacturers adapt to these new requirements by providing manufacturers the ability, and data to monitor real-time production and operations remotely, keeping production on track and informing operational, sales, and service teams on order status, shipping, delivery and service updates.  

A good ERP system, such as the Acumatica Cloud-Based System will become crucial.  Nothing can help manufacturers on so many different levels and enable better management of key elements of their businesses like an ERP Cloud-based System can.  

One of the game-changers in the Manufacturer’s fight against the Covid-19 impact is being able to remotely access all operations throughout the Organization on a 24/7 basis.

Enterprise resource planning (ERP) planning systems have become a mainstay amongst manufacturing companies due to their ability to streamline processes through automation, provide accurate, real-time information, and reduce costs. That said, COVID-19 has fundamentally changed the way in which manufacturers engage with and utilize their ERP systems.
