Implementing an ERP system in current times need not be a complicated and time-consuming endeavor, especially with Monitor ERP which can be implemented in a matter of months. However, it is also important to measure the success of your ERP implementation. There are many key performance indicators (KPIs) which you can measure but we feel that the below are essential success metrics that you should start with:
Empowering over 100 customers in Southeast Asia
As the founder of Monitor ERP System, Åke Persson is synonymous with his audacious drive to do things differently and to challenge the status quo at that time. He wanted to raise the bar in Sweden’s manufacturing industry. Each decade of the company’s journey is punctuated by the evolutionary development of Monitor at the epicenter.

Communicating for a Smarter Factory
It is a known fact that knowledge is power in today’s business world. In the manufacturing industry, sharing the right information at the right time between all related departments is critical to ensure smooth operations of a factory. Transitioning into a Smart Factory requires not only smooth communication between departments but also good management of customer and supplier information, as well as integrated data communication for improved warehousing and production operation.
Relating Employee Engagement to Manufacturing Success
Let us face it, employee engagement is probably not a priority when evaluating work performance. Most employers may not even know if their employees are engaged or disengaged at work, much less know how to increase their engagement.

7 Ways to Manage Manufacturing Costs & Stay Competitive
The only constant in life and in this case, business, is change, much like the ever-changing business landscape that is susceptible to changing global economic and political powers, disease as well as the age-old supply and demand.
The underlying objective of running a business in any situation is to accrue profits. But how is profit defined in the context of a manufacturing business?
Efficient Manufacturing Costs Management Insights
To remain competitive, manufacturers must keep a tight rein on costs – be it materials cost, labor cost, manufacturing overhead, or other indirect costs. Defining and managing manufacturing costs has never been a particularly easy task. Capturing these cost data throughout the entire manufacturing process, from the first piece of production incurred until the final costs are identified, requires high accuracy, consistency, and relatively predictable estimating cycles to compare estimated costs and actual costs to determine profit or loss.
Machine Integration – The Future Smart Factory
With the advent of communications technology, especially the Internet of Things (IoT), virtually any part of your manufacturing process can be connected. Connectivity is the basis for establishing a Smart Factory and progress towards Industry 4.0.
Having the ability to connect devices enables communication between all points on the shop floor and this is the basis of Machine Integration. It is the combination of several control computers into a system of connected machines with the purpose of raising output levels and reliability.
The Importance of On-time Delivery, and How to Achieve it
The advancement of technology has connected the world in ways we could never have imagined several decades ago. It has also brought about new expectations among people for instant gratification. We see this trend in offerings such as Amazon Prime, which offers same day delivery. Innovations such as these have totally changed the playing field for an entire industry.
