How Does ERP Automation Help Manufacturers?

Intro

A construction products company sells fastening products ranging from self-drilling screws and toggles to power nailers and staplers. For years, an IT staffer had to come to work early every morning to prepare the company's Syspro ERP system for the new day.

This company needed a robotic process automation solution that could integrate with their ERP system and keep information updated.

How Does Automate Help?

Before Automate, all ERP updates were manual, and the set of steps to launch updates had to be done five times per day, taking up about 2 ½ hours every day.

ERP systems

 

ERP systems contain valuable information about orders, customers, and inventory, so it’s critical that it’s updated at all times for other departments to run smoothly.
