Since its creation, The Internet has been pushing the boundaries of what is possible. Innovations in the online sector have opened the door for small manufacturing businesses to be able to use MRP systems, something which they may have previously believed was impossible only a few years ago.
Cloud Computing & The Changes It Made To The World Of MRP Software
When computers were first created and began to gain a global outreach, there was an intense excitement over how they could and would be used. The first MRP systems that were designed all had to be physically installed onto a server inside the building, and this was the case for many years to come.
The main reason for this was that physical servers to run the software were incredibly expensive and so this made it very difficult for smaller manufacturing businesses to be able to take advantage of MRP. There were also a lot of problems with the reliability of these systems. Back when PCs became mainstream, upgrades regularly failed and so crucial production systems would often grind to a halt.
Thankfully with the invention of cloud MRP systems, these issues are a thing of the past. The Cloud gives companies the ability to manage their data virtually, outside of a physical data storage setup. By using The Cloud, companies can now access MRP software much easier than ever before, and the various platforms, such as Statii, that have been created for modern businesses are very appealing and affordable to manufacturers.
Other Benefits Of Cloud MRP Systems:
- No upgrades required for Cloud MRP software – As all data is stored online, the program is kept up to date, so there is no downtime to install annoying update packages.
- Scalable – Cloud MRP is scalable to your business, as there are no physical restrictions on how much or little data you can store. Essentially by using The Cloud you are renting space from a vendor, as opposed to buying a physical entity.
- No IT support required – You don’t have to spend money on IT support, either inside or outside of your organisation. As the upkeep of your MRP system is handled by a vendor, and no physical hardware is required to keep MRP running with The Cloud.
- You can access MRP anywhere – If you have a business meeting, or need to nip off site for a while, you can seamlessly access most MRP software on laptops, tablets and even some mobile phones – So you don’t always have to be in the office to keep track of your business.
What Does Cloud MRP Systems Mean For SMEs?
By giving small manufacturing firms access to an online MRP system, it gives smaller businesses the chance to lower their overheads, improve bottom line profit and productivity and makes for better competition within the industry as a whole.
