Finally, UK manufacturers' order books increased sharply during July to the best level in 7 months. An increase in production has also been reported by the CBI, with the balance rising to +7 per cent during the three-month period. At last, UK manufacturing companies are more optimistic about the future prospects of their business than they were in the previous quarter.
Syscom PLC, specialist provider of Microsoft Dynamics AX manufacturing software and Microsoft Gold ERP Partner, has felt the manufacturing sector recovering and gathering pace. They have been receiving an increased number of enquiries since the beginning of 2013 and have won a number of new business contracts. This has resulted in considerable investment and expansion of their workforce. Chris Brentnall, Financial Director for Syscom confirmed, "We have recently expanded our workforce by 20% to enable us to continue to provide our services to the industry and play our part in the recovery process".
Managing Director of the company, John Moses said: "I am delighted with the level of business that Syscom is conducting at present and am optimistic for further growth", he continued "Our Business Consultants are working closely with a number of manufacturing companies throughout the UK to understand their business, learn about their strategies for growth and discuss issues that are being experienced with their current business software". Consultations are complimentary to manufacturing companies who are serious about grasping the opportunity to grow and develop.
"What makes Syscom unique is our ability to take time to understand your business, learn about growth strategies and take into consideration any limitations and shortfalls of the current business software that the manufacturer is using to run their business", said Keith Pittaway, Production Business Consultant for Syscom. "After this initial session, we arrange to meet up again, using a sample of your data, to show how Microsoft Dynamics AX manufacturing software can benefit the company and investigate the return on investment (ROI) that could be achieved". Comprehensive ERP systems, like Microsoft Dynamics AX need not be difficult to install. Upon successful implementation a company can enjoy improved financial reporting, suffer less duplication, time wasting and achieve better alignment throughout.
Before you take the easier route out and maybe upgrade your current system or bolt on yet another third party software package, you are strongly advised to consider ALL of your options and plan for the future. Take the leap out of the recession by making plans to move to a well-established and proven brand. After all, Microsoft has a dedicated team of resources who are constantly managing manufacturing industry solutions and strategies for you.
5 reasons why you should contact Syscom PLC to future-proof your organisation with Microsoft Dynamics AX ERP Manufacturing software:
- A new ERP business software system install can be less painful than you think.
- It can be implemented in manageable stages to suit your needs and your budget.
- It's fully expandable to Enterprise level.
- If you already use Windows and Outlook email, the interface is very much like that.
- Syscom is with you every step of the way to provide training, support and on-going advice and guidance.
Pittaway added "Organisations must select very carefully as the repercussions of incorrect software choice will last a long time and affect your business processes, systems and ultimately revenue. These things take time so remember to start engaging with Syscom early in the process, typically 12-18 months before you wish to "Go-Live", depending on the size of your company. This way you can rest assured that you have enough time to carry out your investigations and come to a well-informed business decision".
