Why We chose ERP instead of CRM
We chose ERP because our main business process is manufacturing and distributing to retail companies; therefore, we feel the best way to serve our customers is through excellent supply chain management and efficiency. It is vitally important for us to be focused on the flow of parts and products between suppliers, retailers and with our own internal departments.
What The Automotive System Offers:
(1) service management
(2) lean manufacturing
(3) quality management
(6) process manufacturing
(7) wholesale and distribution
Features: Advanced Planning and scheduling system, materials and information management, mixed mode manufacturing and customer management systems.
Users: Salesmen, order-entry clerks, customer services representatives and management will all use the ERP system.
-We are going to use the system to reduce costs by increasing our supply chain management flexibility
-We are going to use the increased data analysis to determine the most efficient use of funds for developing quality products
-We are going to use this system to increase strategic communication between us and our distributors
