Fall in love with your business again, by taking away the hassle that comes with manual processes.
For a lot of manufacturers, high customer expectations, paired with out-of-date systems, means that a lot of time is spent simply trying to get the job done. Firefighting and combating problems take up all of their energy.
Scheduling and planning is one of the biggest challenges for many manufacturers. With many parts to the process, including people and machinery, it can be hard to get production right.
With no clear view of finances, it can be difficult for a business to know what position it is in. How can you plan for the future, if you don’t even know what is around the corner?

There are likely some manufacturers that still do things the old-fashioned way. These companies may see no obvious reason to change their approach. But with more of the world digitising all the time, it’s sensible to embrace technology. Not only does this future-proof your business, but it also helps to keep you ahead of the competition.
Manufacturing Software is an all-encompassing solution that ties a manufacturer’s separate functions together, in one, easy-to-use system. Many manufacturers are constantly fighting fires and worrying about their finances. Manufacturing Software gets rid of this altogether, allowing manufacturers to focus on building a profitable business. Business Cloud Essentials takes care of the nitty gritty processes in the background, so you can focus on what you love.
Manufacturing Software has functionality around stock control, e-commerce, accounting, production and scheduling. This makes it the perfect tool for manufacturers that are looking to grow and prosper. Our Manufacturing Software (Business Cloud Essentials), was designed for small to medium-sized manufacturers, who are looking to bring all elements of their business together in one place.
Business Cloud Essentials has a multitude of benefits for manufacturers. It allows for full visibility of your inventory. Financial reporting and forecasting become possible through the use of accurate data. Online sales are essentially put into autopilot. Manufacturers are brought closer to their customers too. Overall efficiency is increased, and sustained growth becomes a real possibility.
Yes. The software brings all operations together seamlessly, including accounting, CRM, e-commerce, payroll and stock control. This connectedness between departments allows for consistent data and powerful reporting. It also makes it possible to automate many processes.
Business Cloud Essentials is equipped with powerful reporting capabilities. With all business functions being unified, the data in these reports is highly accurate and up-to-date. This means that you can make bold predictions and constantly monitor financial health.
Many processes in the supply chain can effectively be put into autopilot with Business Cloud Essentials. Online sales made on your e-commerce platform are fed back into BCE, updating the inventory data, so that orders can then be made (if materials fall below a certain threshold). This clarity around stock control and sales makes it easier to stay on top of logistical processes too.
Business Cloud Essentials is designed to facilitate growth for manufacturers. By making many tasks easier, and by automating many processes (as well as providing invaluable insight), the system is truly transformational for smaller companies. It provides scaled growth too, so even if you grow quickly, this isn't accompanied by the usual discomfort.
Business Cloud Essentials is intentionally simple to use. For every new customer, we assign a Customer Success Manager, who becomes your point of contact throughout implementation (as well as your whole time as a customer). Their role is to ensure you get the absolute maximum value from the solution, and are always on hand to support with any requirements or queries. An Onboarding Manager is provided initially, to optimise the system for your specific needs. After this you can access our Customer Portal, or contact our dedicated Support Team (if you have any questions about the system).
Cloud-based systems allow you to access your data online at any time (and from any place). This is particularly important now that more people are working from home.
Cloud-based systems are actually known for being safer than other software. This is because your sensitive data is stored online, rather than in a physical location that's perhaps vulnerable. Online access makes it easier for security protocols to be updated as and when this needs to happen.
Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) is a model whereby software is hosted centrally by a provider, making life easier for users. Customers pay a monthly fee for this service, which includes use of the system itself. This system is accessed online, rather than being installed on-premise.
This method of payment helps with cashflow. It allows you to pay a monthly fee, with no hidden surprises. This fee includes any support you may need, and any updates that are applied to the system going forward.
