EIS Consultants have Experience with Many Different Industries

One of the many requirements for choosing an ERP is adaptability.  This helps ensure that the ERP can be configured in a variety of different ways.  It also demonstrates the ERP vendor's commitment and dedication to servicing many different types of organizations.

Our consultants have years of experience helping companies across many different industries.  Each industry has their own specific ways of doing things, but many of them share common concerns and challenges running their business.  Here are the types industries we have the most experience with:

Distributors are challenged with rapidly changing customer demands, complex product inventories, and fluctuations in the supply chain.  Quote-to-Cash is a critical process, and having integrated financials, inventory, purchase and sales order management, customer management, service and support automation, and customer self-service portals are all important pieces of functionality for distributors.

Manufacturers need to manage both supply and demand.  They require software that manages the manufacturing process, maintain revisions, and track the financials.  They require integrated manufacturing, inventory management, and accounting to help businesses ensure raw materials are available for production.  Generating accurate pricing and calculating total manufacturing costs are critical to maintaining healthy margins.

Software and services industries have many things in common, since many software companies also provide services.  Managing recurring and deferred revenue along with tracking the costs of project time and materials, complex billing scenarios, cost of acquisition, project profitability, upsells, customer satisfaction, and renewals are just some of the items critical to these industries.

Multi-channel experiences and operating efficiencies are key to these industries.  Both in-store and online experiences must support anytime, anywhere, from any device, and must be seamlessly integrated with order management and processing.  Real-time status of orders, inventory, shipments, and profitability, as well as the ability to support existing customers are critical.

Government has its own set of requirements and methods of doing things that are different than the private sector.  Scalability, operational efficiency, strict reporting requirements, user security roles and permissions, and adherence to state and federal laws and guidelines creates its own set of challenges from local municipalities to state and federal organizations.

Small Businesses experience a variety of challenges which are common across many different industries.  Innovation, automation, streamlining, and putting controls around business processes help small businesses achieve their goals.  Budgets may be restricted.  Growing companies must strategically choose which pain points they wish to address first so that they can scale most effectively.

Other industries share many common concerns and challenges to the ones listed above.  While each industry has their own differentiators that make them unique, we can apply our knowledge from many other industries together with your help to provide great solutions for your organization.
