Manufacturing IT departments tend to struggle to support a global organization from a single location and stick to a fixed budget and staffing requirements. Manufacturers have unique IT requirements and challenges compared to most business’s and usually find tasking internal IT with all their computing needs, that their business expectations are not being met. Therefore, they should partner with an MSP that has experience in the manufacturing field, and outsourcing core IT management functions to an experienced managed services provider may offer a solution.
Real-time ERP systems provide such aspects as product and production planning, manufacturing or service delivery, marketing and sales, materials management, inventory management and shipping and payment. ERP downtime can contribute to reduced management efficiency, reduced production efficiency and increase of costs. Using a managed service provider reduces the risk of downtime by properly managing computer, storage and fixed network assets.
