Our Manufacturing Customers Know It's Not Just About Automating the Floor

Manufacturing companies are in a battle to stay ahead of aggressive competition, logistics issues, hiring backlogs, and globalization while keeping costs in line. In addition, as mergers and acquisitions ripple through the industry, chaos can ensue internally as redundancies, confusion, and complexity threaten performance. Manufacturers have focused on automating what happens on the shop floor - now it’s time to apply the same thinking to office workflows. Manufacturing companies can adapt more quickly to all these forces with workflow management. 

Whether a company is considering process transformation for a specific use case, an integrated layer on top of existing ERP, CRM, etc., or an end-to-end organizational transformation, workflow management solutions like Integrify can help.

Use Case Examples

Capital and Operational Expenditure Requests

But with the volume of submitted capital expenditure requests, there is a significant risk of mistakes, delays, compliance, and visibility. Given the investment, the cost of these risks can be enormous. By deploying a compliant and consistent workflow for handling capital expenditure requests, manufacturing companies can greatly reduce risk while getting a faster return on capital spending.

Product Lifecycle Development

As manufacturing companies deal with global expansion, competitive pressure, regulatory changes, and changing consumer expectations, getting new products to market faster and faster is critical. Unfortunately, the process of creating new products never gets easier. While product development cycles can’t be shortcuts, they can be managed better with workflow management. By building a structured workflow around R&D, Quality, Production, Packaging, and Marketing, manufacturing companies can reduce risk and ensure quality while avoiding process bottlenecks. That means products get to market faster.

Quality Control

Workflow management and automation replaces manual, paper-based quality management systems that are inefficient and prone to error. An automated quality management system increases compliance whether an organization is beholden to regulatory rules, is interested in improving its quality standards, or conforms to ISO Standards.
