Sage X3 for manufacturing businesses

An ERP system for medium to large manufacturers.

Would visibility into supply chain activity and deeper insights into production costs help your manufacturing business grow?

Global supply chain disruption, rapid technological evolution, and changing buying and selling habits have meant that manufacturers have had to deal with some rapid and radical changes over the past couple of years. Consumer demand continues to outpace manufacturers’ abilities to produce goods and distributors’ abilities to deliver them. Manufacturers are struggling to ramp up capacity because they’re suffering from product and shipping delays. Finished products are also filling up at ports and warehouses, and there is a lack of drivers to transport goods, which is contributing to higher freight costs.

How does Sage X3 help?

The good news is that an industry-specific manufacturing ERP solution, like Sage X3, helps manufacturers mitigate these challenges, giving them control over global operations with better insight into supply chains, quality and costs. With Sage X3 you can:

  • Minimise over-production by aligning production, purchasing and logistics
  • Avoid inventory issues with demand planning and modelling tools to support Just-in-Time (JIT) production
  • Solve transport problems by timing production and logistics, so businesses do not have to move goods from one place to another

  • Prevent over-processing through the creation of a Bill of Materials (BOM)
  • Wipeout defects by seeing where the deviations are and stop them at the source
