Global enterprises as well as national or regional manufacturers can benefit dramatically by implementing a strategic approach to performance management. Regardless of industry, EPM offers faster, more agile ways for manufacturers to increase revenues while containing costs.
Manufacturers can leverage EPM solutions to provide value that was simply impossible before. Use EPM to align the strategic objectives of the company to the operational plan through the financial plan in an integrated solution. Further, clients can optimize the efficient use of precious capital that can often be trapped in excess inventories by poorly planned production schedules, inadequately understood or infrequently updated demand plans, or other bottlenecks in the fulfillment process. The ability to properly predict and prepare for customer demand, optimize the production process, and manage inventory levels to free capital to redeploy in more strategic ways can deliver significant benefits to the bottom line.
