BX PRO for manufacturers of unique items
The management of companies that manufacture unique products is a complex activity. The complex and interchangeable relations of customer requests, engineering, procurement, project management and resource planning are a great challenge for all such enterprises. Besides, it is essential to have a direct and immediate access to a huge amount of data. The integrated control and coordination of business processes with BX PRO significantly improves profitability and the better utilization of resources while reduces delivery deadlines, errors and the overtime. Most enterprises that manufacture unique items still do not use integrated systems, instead, they work with tables and planning / accounting programs and printed documents. General purpose company management systems are not suitable for this purpose, not even with significant customization. Neither corporate level general material requirement planning is suitable for customized and unique processes. One must find a solution without compromises, a solution that fully meets the requirements of the respective manufacturer. This new world is brought to companies by BX PRO.
BX PRO supports unique manufacturing processes, material requirement and resource capacity planning, scheduling and monitoring. This ensures that production is completed by the relevant deadline and stays within the budget. The combination of BX PRO and SAP Business One offers a complex solution and contains CRM-, logistics, labor cost-settlement, accounting, time management and invoice scheduling functions as well. BX PRO offers all this as a uniform product, with a consistent user interface, integrated into the SAP Business One system that provides shorter lead times, higher profit, better use of resources and last but not least less stress.
BX PRO and SAP Business One
BX PRO and SAP Business One provide a complex IT ecosystem for companies that organize (the majority of) their work into projects. BX PRO was designed specifically for such companies. The result is a flexible and strongly integrated solution that is perfectly aligned to the specific needs of project-based enterprises. BX PRO perfectly fits the needs of companies from various industries because it is equally suitable for companies that work in a “mixed operation mode” (i.e. their operation is only partially based on projects). Mixed operation mode companies are very common by now and BX PRO/SAP Business One is just perfect for them. Companies that combine services, manufacturing and project activities (also) require systems that ensure wide scope of functionalities and integrated, easy-to-use operation.
