Using WorkWise ERP can bring about a slew of benefits for industrial equipment manufacturers, including:
All aspects of our company are now running through our ERP software. Having everyone work out of the same system and not have multiple programs that you have to jump back and forth through, has allowed us to get more done in less time.
One of the main benefits we’ve experienced using WorkWise ERP is being able to get meaningful information we can use, versus getting data that requires more work to get the answers you’re looking for. The data is integrated and streamlined for efficient use which keeps our fixed costs lower and allows us to invest our capital into building better products.
It doesn’t take all day to do our schedule anymore. Also, the Performance Management WorkBench lets us see what information we want to see, and what time we want to see it, in a nice visual way. Item Planning is also great. It’s so easy to look up specific information related to whatever we need to see.

What’s really nice is having everything in one package. My financials are in the same package as manufacturing and customer orders. Everything integrates seamlessly. Bringing in inventory management has been a huge benefit for us. Being able to jump between workbenches and different points of data has been really nice.
