The all-in-one solution for a manufacturer
Not only will this software help with the manufacturing process, but it will also help with the steps afterwards, such as the distribution and the selling. Manufacturers value this software because it helps create products for the inventory from scratch. Also, assemblies can be done right before the sales period, which gives manufacturers enough time to arrange for all the raw materials and they no longer have to worry about the hassle of last minute assemblies, as this software speeds up the process. Not only that, manufacturers no longer have to worry about the total costs and constantly keep track of it, as NetSuite Manufacturing Edition does it for them. And finally, it also maintains order by managing the inventory levels to appropriately meet the consumer demands.
NetSuite is intelligent software, as in, all that a manufacturer has to do is input the initial numbers into it, and the rest can easily be dealt with by this software. An example of its intelligent programming is the demand planning, in which, it takes into consider the information derived from the sales order management in order to handle the highest ranking consumer demands.
The plan that it executes takes into account the expected demand and the orders that have already been placed by the consumers, to bring forth a cost-efficient solution for the manufacturer. Another handy feature that it has is its history tracking, where it keeps track of the history of all the products and its assembly details and uses it in moments when they are needed, effectively maintaining the overall inventory.
