28 Nov ERP cloud improves SMBs in the UK
ERP Connect 2012, a UK based ERP trade convention, was held recently and themanufacturer.com gives a nice breakdown of events that includes discussions about the growing popularity of ERP cloud solutions.
One of the presenters was CEO of m2fx, a small but growing fiber optic manufacturer. Until recently m2fx didn’t have the resources necessary to implement an ERP system, but with the growth of the cloud and hosted ERP they were able to go live with one in 2011.
With their new cloud-based ERP they were able to double their business in a year’s time while achieving a 95 percent on-time delivery rate. The company has also seen improved inventory control, clarity on margins and they are better utilizing equipment to their advantage.
