The Importance of an Integrated System

Crossroads RMC 0 513 Article rating: No rating

I recently came across an article from CIO Magazine that talked about the various ways that your ERP system could be hurting your business. The single most important item on that list referenced ERP systems that weren’t integrated with other systems that housed mission-critical business data.

Having data in two (or more) systems that don’t talk to one another is like baking a pizza crust in one oven and the toppings in another. Once baked, you may have some good food to snack on, but it sure isn’t pizza! Pizza requires the cheese and sauce and spices to bake with the crust. One takes on the flavor of the other and when you take a bite, you get a complete representation of the flavors.   

That’s the value of an integrated ERP system. When you take a bite, you get a complete representation of the flavors…meaning, you get one version of the truth. Everything comes together to allow you to analyze critical business data in an efficient way with no disconnects.

Crossroads consultants have spent years developing integration expertise to tie countless different systems to Infor ERPs.

Here are some examples…

Is it time to reinvigorate your ERP system?

Crossroads RMC 0 562 Article rating: 5.0

Did you implement your ERP system 5 years ago… or maybe 20 years ago? At the time, it was like a brand new car… sleek, fast, top-of-the-line, and fuel-efficient. And although it may have needed a few minor “adjustments”, overall you were very pleased. Fast forward to today. Does it still have that new car smell? Does it run as efficiently as it used to? Do you know how to fix a problem when it occurs?

While ERP systems are certainly designed to last, over time, your business changes, your customers’ needs change, employees change and you are left with a system that may run “fine”, but you certainly don’t feel the same way about it as you did when it was brand new.

So the good news is that you CAN restore that “new car smell” with a utilization review. What is a utilization review? It's an opportunity for someone, outside of your organization, to evaluate the “what”, “how”, “who” and “why” related to the software that you use to run your business. Our consultant reviews current usage and related business processes of your entire ERP system, or a particular area like Finance, Manufacturing, Materials Management, or Technology to make recommendations that will reinvigorate your ERP system and those that use it.

Stop avoiding the warning light that indicates a serious problem and get started with a FREE 1-hour phone assessment to determine if your business can benefit from a utilization review!

A utilization review can be performed 100% remotely via phone or web meeting, or in person, following safety guidelines.

Regardless of the size of your business, continuous improvement in productivity is essential to enhancing gross profits and maintaining competitiveness.

Here are a few of the best tips to help you improve the productivity of your manufacturing facility as presented by Robotics and Automation News >

Is your company on an older version of Infor LX, BPCS, Infor LN, Baan, Infor M3 or Movex?

Crossroads RMC 0 3810 Article rating: 5.0

What will you do when your ERP is no longer supported in 2021?

This is a confusing time for many companies with respect to their ERP system.

"Will I still be able to run my current version?"
"What happens if I want to stay on my version?"
"What options do I have?"

Crossroads RMC is here to help you sort through the confusion and get you to a place where you feel confident about your ERP future.

Let's get started with how we can help. I want Crossroads RMC to…

  • Conduct an Infor ERP Utilization Review – Should I consider moving to the latest version of LX in the cloud, or on prem? If I don’t, what are my options?
     
  • Set up an Infor ERP Demo System – I want to give my employees a chance to try out the latest version to see if it would be of benefit.
     
  • Train My Employees – I want to ensure that we’re operating based on best practices.
     
  • Integrate My ERP to External Systems – My company uses separate systems that don’t talk to one another and that is really inefficient.
     
  • Brainstorm With Me – I’m not sure what to do. I need to talk through some scenarios with someone who has been there, done that.
     
  • Support My Users – I’m short-staffed. I may upgrade, or I may stay where I’m at. Either way, I could use someone to handle our ERP issues. Please help!

Contact us at 800.762.2077 or click here to request a free phone consultation and we'll get you back on track.
