Choosing A Successful ERP System For The Flooring Manufacturing Industry.

Posted by Harriet Schneider on Jan 22, 2024 11:00:56 AM

Choosing a successful ERP system for the flooring manufacturing industry involves considering industry-specific needs and challenges. Which are the top factors to focus on when selecting an ERP system for a flooring manufacturing business? We recommend starting with these:

Industry-Specific Functionality:

Look for an ERP system that offers features tailored to the flooring manufacturing industry. This may include modules for product lifecycle management, batch processing, quality control, inventory management (including tracking of raw materials like wood, tiles, etc.), and order management.

Material Requirement Planning (MRP):

MRP functionality is crucial for managing and planning the procurement of raw materials. Ensure that the ERP system can assist in optimizing material usage, managing inventory levels, and minimizing waste.

Product Configuration and Variants:

Flooring products often come in various sizes, styles, and configurations. Choose an ERP system that supports product configuration and handles variants efficiently. This is essential for managing different product lines and accommodating customization requests.

Employees at hotel and other hospitality locations are the heart of their organisations, representing company values and mission to deliver the best possible guest experience consistently. But hospitality industry trends coming out of a very disruptive period show a worrying shortage of labour, with workers having time and financial support during lockdown to consider other options when it comes to their careers and their futures.

Why Vertical Industry Expertise Is So Important?

Posted by Harriet Schneider on Mar 21, 2022 11:25:57 AM

If you follow industry news, attend prospect events, or read our partner Infor's website, you know that vertical industry expertise is a favorite topic for Infor executives, leaders, and strategists. Industry-specific functionality is part of our critical foundation and a strong differentiating feature for our software solutions, we say frequently. But, have you thought about why? Do you know where our industry expertise comes from and how we leverage it into valuable selling points? Let’s look closer at what “industry expertise” means, why we are highly focused on it as a strategy, and how it will propel Infor forward.

The backstory

To understand where we are going, it helps to know how we got here. History provides context. In the evolution of ERP solutions, there’s a long and winding road that providers and users travelled before today’s Software as a Service (SAAS) model became the accepted best practice. In early days of ERP solutions, massive monolithic solutions with complex architecture and rigid code structure were the norm. Large enterprises invested heavily and hired consultants to customize the operational features. The heavily modified systems were costly to update.

Then came cloud computing. But, for companies to take advantage of the benefits of multi-tenant cloud deployment, they needed to have their industry-specific functionality already built into the solution—so modifications wouldn’t be needed. Modifications slow down deployment and can get in the way of upgrades.

Infor had been heavily investing into industry-specific features of the core ERP solutions. The solutions contain the functionality needed for industry specific applications—making it easier to migrate to the cloud.
