One of the main considerations when choosing an ERP solution is how well it will integrate with your other business processes. For manufacturers of building materials, detailing software has revolutionized the way you can design and construct many structures like steel detailing and fabrication.
If you use powerful detailing software for your door and hardware or architectural openings business, how well does your software integrate with your other business functions?
For an ERP solution to be most effective, it needs to work in harmony with your other vital software tools. This is especially true with detailing software.
Why Should ERP Integrate Easily with Detailing Software?
You may be happy with your current detailing software. It’s likely highly specialized and powerful. Why not let your detailing software do what it’s good at. Then, let ERP do what it’s good at.
When your ERP system can integrate with all your vital business functions and tools, it becomes all the more powerful. For example, your ERP’s inventory tracking will compliment your detailing software and vice-versa. It’s not good business to keep different aspects of your company in their own separate silo. They should work together for optimal efficiency and profitability.
