With new technologies and easier access to data transforming the manufacturing industry, businesses that wish to remain competitive and focused must be prepared to ditch outdated operating practices in favour of more efficient and innovative approaches.
Fluctuating orders volumes, a thirst for more product variations, and consumer demand for faster product development and distribution are challenges that many manufacturers face. Coupled with the increasing complexities of global supply chains, businesses must be prepared to adapt to the changing landscape, aspiring to greater efficiency to stay ahead of their rivals.
Improving operational performance with BEAS
At B1 Solutions, we understand that harnessing the right business management solution is central to your brand’s success in a changing world. The BEAS add-on for SAP Business One delivers a scalable platform that aims to overhaul operational performance, improve the reliability of assets, preserve quality control, and enhance Bill of Materials agility.
Visibility supports active business decisions and production planning
Core business decisions need to be underpinned by real-time data, so if this is stored in isolated, offline systems, your brand’s ability to flourish and grow is seriously weakened. When reports take too long to generate, or their data is out-of-date, the entire decision-making process is unable to respond quickly enough to the evolving needs of your business.
The BEAS add-on offers a variety of essential tools that enable managers to keep tabs on every element of production. Plant and resources can be effectively managed, for example, to ensure that materials don’t run short at crucial times, or to allow essential downtime to be pre-planned. Managers can access the most up-to-date production data instantly to ensure that their decision-making addresses the most pressing needs in the production cycle.
