With factory automation and digitalisation moving at a rapid pace, this year’s bi-annual MACH Show also offers K3 Syspro an ideal opportunity to launch its latest Superpowers campaign. The aim is champion the super heroes in businesses who are leading the way when it comes to embracing Industry 4.0.
Our one day event was a fantastic opportunity to gather 100 of our UK customers together in one location to share our latest developments and highlight the many ways in which we, along with our partners, can help businesses maintain their competitive advantage in a world that is rapidly moving towards full digitalisation and Industry 4.0.
SYSPRO, a global provider of industry-built ERP software, is continuing the drive to enhance their ERP solution and improve the user experience by releasing Business Insights to their customers. This product enhancement gives business owners an optimised visibility across their organisation geared to boost productivity and efficiency by surfacing useful insights.
In this final blog post in the series, we want to look at one of the barriers to increased productivity: defects in the manufacturing process. Not only do they cost time and money but, in some cases, defects can even cost companies their reputation and, ultimately, their existence.
The key to increasing a business’ productivity is improving efficiency. And in turn, the key to improving efficiency is better workflow visibility. If digitisation was a puzzle, then improved workflow visibility would be the first and most important piece. Technology and software that deliver a better understanding of workflow visibility put businesses in a much stronger position to move closer towards digitisation and Industry 4.0. And this is where ERP comes in.
An independent engineering company, which is one of the UK’s largest stockholders of quality engineering and advanced thermoplastics, has chosen K3 Syspro’s ERP system to help the business move forward.
Take a look around and the chances are you they may range from their teens through to their late sixties. And that’s great – there’s a lot to be said for having age diversity in the workplace. But have you ever considered how an employee’s age influences both the way they work and their ability to manage the rapid technological advances the UK’s manufacturing sector is witnessing?
An Accrington based company, BMP have invested in SYSPRO ERP to deal with their diverse product ranges and allow for future growth. BMP Europe is a subsidiary of the Andrew Group and a Global Company specialising in the manufacture and conversion of Technical Non-Woven Textiles, Engineered Polyurethane Elastomers, Mechanical Components.
The aim is to build stronger, more transparent relationships between K3 and its resellers, referrers and those whose products are fully adopted. The main partner portal will also provide news as well as reviews on products and give partners the opportunity to discuss training on new software like document management systems.
Replacing manual processes with automation where possible is about making best use of staff time. K3 Syspro’s manufacturing software allows manufacturers the facility not just to be able to plan, execute and control production, but also integrate those operations into other business processes. This provides valuable knowledge to staff members who are customer facing and also gives more predictable timelines.
