ETO Manufacturers Benefit from Contextual Intelligence Notes Streamline Systems Blog for Engineer to Order Firms
(OPENPRESS) December 31, 2011 -- The less time spent looking up or processing data means more time improving product quality or delivery. Microsoft is the de facto leader in business productivity applications. Features from Microsoft Office that improve the user experience are built into Dynamics AX 2012. Working with data is like working in Excel, with sorting, filtering and advanced query tools to speed up decision making. The Action pane, or Ribbon as it is called in Office, enables the user to easily navigate to any related function or process. Eliminating menu searches with forward, back and history buttons, helps you find things more quickly, with fewer clicks and less pain. Contextual intelligence is provided with simple rollover of the mouse, or a single click hyperlink. Regardless of the challenges facing an ETO organization, it makes sense to simplify how the team gets work done.
The fifth installment Streamline Systems' ETO blog recently focused on the promise to make ERP simple and easy to use in the engineer-to-order space. The role-tailored user experience and familiarity with MS Office workspace is profiled for ETO manufacturers using AX 2012, found at http://www.streamlinesys.com/blog/.
The ETO organization looks for a competitive edge. The ability to design and deliver custom or specialized products sets them apart. Custom manufacturing can be data intensive. Customer specifications and requirements have to be accurately translated and applied through the manufacturing process. This represents a burden on both knowledge and production workers and often results in lost business or expensive rework, because a quote is not accurately estimated, or a product fails to meet the specification.
Streamline Systems just published a vital tool for Engineer-to-Order manufacturers; the white paper is objective and looks at the history, trends, and future of ETO manufacturing. Larry Cohn and the ETO experts at Streamline Systems work with industrial manufacturers to manage and grow their businesses through the effective use of software designed for engineer to order manufacturing companies. "We focus exclusively on ETO manufacturers, who benefit from the knowledge and experience of ETO experts," commented Cohn.
The paper discusses the development of ETO ERP Solutions, including AX2012 ETO ERP. The Streamline Systems ETO ERP white paper may be requested at: http://www.streamlinesys.com/engineer-to-order.php.
Dynamics AX 2012 is designed to be the most powerful, agile and simple ERP available. AX 2012 ETO from Streamline Systems can also be followed via Twitter @StreamlineSysAX.
