ERP software for the manufacturing industry: VlexPlus

The VlexPlus ERP software solution provides the necessary basis for meeting the the growing requirements for customer-orientated production, manufacturing in medium-sized companies.

Economical variant production: Increase efficiency and reduce costs

In order to gain more market share, medium-sized companies must become more customer-orientated in their production. An important point here is that the costs remain acceptable from the customer's point of view.

This means that companies have to coordinate several tasks at the same time: Producing the large number of variants cost-efficiently, optimally utilising the available resources and meeting the agreed delivery dates. However, this is where many manufacturers quickly reach their limits - both in terms of business management and production technology.

The restrictions and the associated disadvantages can be particularly noticeable if your production is not consistently variant-orientated. This can result in higher costs than planned, as each variant requires individual processes, materials and resources. In addition, inefficient processes often lead to longer lead times and delays in delivery dates. Product quality control can become more difficult and the increasing complexity of production can be difficult to manage.

This means that to overcome these challenges, you need end-to-end variant logic in your ERP system. This allows you to efficiently map the entire production process and ensure the controlling of variant management using parameters such as costs, production complexity, deadlines and quality.

A modern ERP solution makes your company fit for the future in the age of digital transformation and automation.
