ERP Systems For Automotive Companies
The automotive industry is a growth industry. It has broken and continues to break record after record. Sales and production in China are booming. A strong recovery in the US continues to surpass expectations. Demographic changes and profound shifts in global economic power are causing massive upheavals in demand.
In this era of growth the industry is also facing unprecedented challenges. Consumer expectations are changing radically and new technologies are dramatically changing vehicles, from the advent of the ‘connected car’ and enhanced driver support to better fuel efficiency.
Tough competition makes efficiency, inventiveness, flexibility and decisiveness mandatory. The automotive industry has experienced many pressures. It has been essential to deliver year-on-year cost improvements and this has been combined with constantly increasing flexibility requirements and harsh penalties for failure to meet short-term schedules.
ERP is a critical asset as business leaders need up to date facts, figures, trends and information at their fingertips to be able to see what is really going on within their business. To be effective and make the right decisions, they need real-time information on customer service, inventory, availability and manufacturing status.
