Why Manufacturing and Warehouse Automation Integration Matters

manufacturing automationAccounting software, warehouse management systems, manufacturing automation, sales software—in many businesses these are separate systems that rarely talk to one another. While choosing individual software systems may meet departmental needs, having separate systems often creates more problems than they solve. The fact is: integration matters.

When systems don’t talk, far more time and money is spent in reconciling the systems and re-entering data. It’s like the right hand doesn’t know what the left is doing. Inventory may be out of stock or over-stocked because sales and order information is automatically updated in the warehouse. Manufacturing may be creating items but they are entered incorrectly into the warehouse.
