As the global economy continues to recover from the pandemic, manufacturers are facing a new challenge: rising labor costs. With fierce competition to attract and retain skilled labor and increasing minimum wage rates, many manufacturers are struggling to maintain profitability. In response, manufacturers are turning to technology solutions to help them streamline operations and reduce costs. One such solution is Infor SyteLine, an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system designed specifically for manufacturers. Whether deployed on-premises or in the cloud, SyteLine can help manufacturers optimize their labor costs.
Automation Frees Up Resources for Greater Efficiency
SyteLine provides manufacturers with a range of tools to help them improve productivity, reduce waste, and optimize their supply chain. One of the key ways that CSI can help manufacturers tackle rising labor costs is by automating manual processes. By automating tasks such as data entry, order processing, and inventory management, manufacturers can reduce the amount of time and effort required to complete these tasks. This, in turn, frees up employees to focus on more value-added activities, such as quality control and customer service.
Real-Time Visibility Enables Manufacturers to Pivot Quickly
In addition to automation, SyteLine also provides manufacturers with real-time visibility into their operations. With this visibility, manufacturers can quickly identify areas of inefficiency and take corrective action. For example, if a particular machine is consistently experiencing downtime, manufacturers can use SyteLine to track the issue and schedule maintenance before it becomes a major problem. This not only helps to improve productivity, but also reduces the risk of costly downtime.
Advanced Planning & Scheduling Maximizes Efficiency and Minimizes Waste
Another way that SyteLine can help manufacturers tackle rising labor costs is by providing them with advanced planning and scheduling capabilities. With these capabilities, manufacturers can optimize their production schedules to maximize efficiency and minimize waste. This can help to reduce labor costs by ensuring that employees are utilized effectively and that production is aligned with demand.
Actionable Insights Empower Proactive Decision-Making
Finally, SyteLine can help manufacturers to reduce labor costs by enabling them to make more informed decisions. With its advanced analytics and reporting capabilities, SyteLine provides manufacturers with actionable insights into their operations. This can help manufacturers to identify areas of inefficiency and take corrective action before they become major problems.
