All manufacturers are under tremendous pressure to reduce manufacturing costs. However, companies may not realize the huge cost and time economies a document management system can deliver.
Just like cost reduction goals, manufacturing companies must continually look for ways to gain competitive advantages and improve time-to-market.
Departments tend to be very “self-contained” making it difficult to locate data across multiple systems and departments.
Data comes in multiple formats and can be difficult to manage (e.g. electronic orders, paper files, office documents, electronic documents, CAD and large format documents).
Slow and manual paper-based processes for sharing, reviewing and approving documents and drawings dominate workflows.
