I know that there are manufacturers still out there using green screens. No judgement, just wondering why? The green screen had its time, but there is more, and it isn't quite the user nightmare that you think.
Now, I know that there are always the skeptics among you, but we are talking about investing in future growth. The skeptics talk about "this is how we have done it for years" and "it works just fine". The skeptic will spend hours telling you how you will lose all your data, or if you want to usher in an apocolypse, then change the software.
I guarantee that the skeptic and all his / her minions use social media like Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Instagram. Little do they know, ERP and CRM are looking a lot like the social media they already use at home.
And as Baby Boomers retire, it is even more critical to attract innovative, energetic talent. And that talent is not going to be impressed with your elaborate green screen set up that you spend hours getting reports and dumping them into excel for manipulation in an effort to extract the data that you need.
But let's not even focus on attracting talent (which we have all been reading about the need for labor in the manufacturing sector). I want you to imagine a world where the screen comes in many different colors and has reports and even customer data on one screen. Intrigued?
Infor has spent years developing and finely tuning their ERP Software. Infor has created an innovative platform that is not only user friendly, it is manufacturing friendly. Infor SyteLine ERP Manufacturing Software provides the means to connect sales, marketing, manufacturing, financials, suppliers, customers, logistics, and service providers. Can your green screen do that?
So what are you afraid of? Cost, planning, down-time, data, not knowing how to use the software..... Don't be afraid, and don't let the skeptic in the group bang their cowbell!
Through personalization and customer support, potential headaches are averted. ERP software is more than a software upgrade. It is an investment in future growth that will provide you with more insight into your business than ever before, without being complex and confusing to use.
