Are you bumping into software limitations that force you to do things differently than you want to?
Customer-focused manufacturers often have special requirements to support their process innovations
When a manufacturer is innovative by nature, they innovate with products and customer service, and with their internal processes. For example:
- You use different units of measurement for purchase vs. manufacture vs. sales, where the logic to sync these up isn’t simple
- Your pricing rules vary by customer contract or quote
- Your customer buys their own raw goods and materials and you need to track those separately
- Your scheduling needs change with the types of jobs you work on
- You need to track items by serial number. Or by lot, with full traceability for regulatory compliance.
The trouble is that most software can’t adapt to special requirements like that. Or if it can, it involves a costly, year-long programming project.

Problems drag down the profit margin
“If it costs me $1.5M to sell $1M then I’ve lost money. It’s not gross revenue. It’s increased profit margin that I want. All those extra pieces of work—extra to produce, deliver, provide customer service, labor—diminish the profitability of the job.”
