7 Tell-Tale Signs You Should Become a Pioneer
There comes a time in every company’s road to success where they realize there are things holding them back. It is what a company decides to do in those situations that determines if they are a Pioneer and press on to success, or if they succumb to defeat. Don’t be a company left behind on the trail to success. Here are 7 tell-tale signs that you need to start your journey to become a Pioneer today:
1. You use manual Excel Spreadsheets for reporting, production, inventory, or any other business function
While we at Pioneer love and value Excel, having your employees struggle through the macros and formulas to give you the information you need is not the answer. With SAP Business One you have all the information you need at your fingertips with out-of-the-box sales, productions, purchasing, inventory processing, and financial reporting. Back away from the Excel spreadsheets before it’s too late!
2. You run out of inventory for customer orders
No one wants to be the company that doesn’t have what the customers want when they want it. SAP Business One has a built-in MRP system that allows you to set reorder points, set lead times from vendors, and even provide forecasting to help you ensure that your inventory levels are exactly where they need to be when you need them.
3. Your inventory costs are not reliable
If you don’t know what the actual cost of your products and inventory is at the end of your processing, then you don’t really know where your business is at. Everything is contingent on knowing exactly where your product costing is including your pricing to customers, Gross Profit, and ultimately your bottom line. SAP Business One tracks all of your inventory costs including potential landed costs right out of the box so you know where you are and where you need to go.
4. You find out you have a problem after it’s too late
Tired of finding out about a problem with inventory, pricing, or production after it’s too late? With SAP Business One you no longer need to worry about what you may not be seeing. Our out of the box solutions has amazing analytics and reporting capabilities including approval processes and alerts so that you know about a potential issue before it becomes an epidemic.
5. You have more than one person entering the same pieces of information
Having multiple people inputting the same pieces of information is inefficient and costly to any business. Don’t waste your money on more payroll when you could have a system that does the work for you. Your payroll expense should reflect you paying for quality, not quantity because of your systems.
6. Your business is banking on multiple systems to keep it running
Do you find you are having to patch multiple systems together because each department has their own special needs? SAP Business One is an all-in-one ERP system which means that sales, purchasing, inventory, production, and financials integrate seamlessly to give you the reporting and accuracy that you need. And if one department still needs to feel special with their own custom fields, no problem! SAP Business One is the most user-friendly system allowing you to customize screens, formats, and even add fields as needed to make it your own.
7. Your company can’t grow because your system is holding you back
Don’t let your systems hold you back any longer. You have a wonderful company and product and nothing should hold you back from being the best that you can be. SAP Business One will allow you to grow and expand as needed without having to look for another system down the road.
