Business requirements can change in the blink of an eye. Growth, mergers and outside influences can affect your business, but you need to be sure your operations and budget can handle it. Here are three manufacturers who faced changing requirements and managed to cut costs with the help of a cloud enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution.
GR Spring & Stamping Inc.
GR Spring & Stamping Inc. (GRSS) is an industry leader in the manufacturing of metal stampings, value-added assemblies, springs and slide-formed products. As a supplier to the automotive industry, GRSS faces a competitive market and increasing supplier requirements. With innovative ideas from their employees and the implementation of the Plex Manufacturing Cloud, GRSS was able to achieve a cost savings of $1.2 million.
Fluid Routing Solutions
Fluid Routing Solutions manufactures industrial hose products and fuel filler and hydraulic fluid assemblies for the automotive and industrial industries. When Fluid Routing was purchased by a private equity firm, the company was required to migrate away from a legacy AS400 system. After searching for an ERP vendor that met all their needs, Fluid Routing chose the Plex Manufacturing Cloud. After implementation, Fluid Routing was able to reduce ERP-related operating costs by 30 percent.
CAMACO is a leading manufacturer of seating systems solutions and is the largest independent supplier of engineered seat frames to the North American automotive market. Continued growth meant that CAMACO needed to meet extreme productivity and cost-cutting requirements from its customers. To do this, the company needed a cloud ERP solution with a completely integrated, real-time MRP/ERP system at an affordable cost. After evaluating several systems, the Plex Manufacturing Cloud from Plex Systems met all of CAMACO’s requirements. The manufacturer was then able to cut costs by reducing power consumption and eliminating the need for hardware support. Want to learn more?
