We are a two-generation old plastic manufacturing firm. We supply Poly Propylene (PP), High Density Poly ethylene (HDPE) and Low Density Poly Ethylene (LDPE) thermo polymers granules to our clients. We are known for our consistent quality at frugal prices. The company was started by my grandfather as a small venture in the city of Rajasthan. When my father took the reigns over, he started the process of expansion. I continued on the legacy and it has been 5 years that we have gone national. We have four factories across the country, one in each zone.
While going national had been one of my most prized personal achievements, it created a host of problems for us. My children are small and so I have to manage most of the business on my own. I kept travelling most of the time to manage all the manufacturing units. I have had instances in the past with the managers lying to me on multiple fronts. Despite my best efforts, my company was suffering from managerial issues and me from stress.
A lot of my managerial woes came from lack of communication, inefficient reporting and a huge trail of paperwork. There was also the pressure of maintaining industrial standards as every state had its own regulations.
A friend of mine who happens to be a corporate guru analyzed my predicament and traced down the problems to their roots. He identified that most of the issues plaguing my company were somehow related to data collection and mismanagement. He suggested me to get a Cloud ERP for Plastic Industry for my firm as it could potentially solve all my problems.
I did my research and learned that cloud ERP software is a cloud-based ERP system which packs in all the benefit of a traditional Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software. Being a cloud-seeded software, cloud ERP allows for the collection of data on the go. Research and word of mouth led me to Expand ERP as my software provider. I soon took their services and was enthralled to see their flexibility and reliability. I was given a specially designed software, suited to my company needs in the best possible way.
With Expand ERP in my team, data collection became breezy. I could relax in the bedroom of my apartment, yet get information about my factory a thousand miles away. Cloud ERP also allowed me to solve the problem of false reporting. The software could self verify reports through data manifestation. The software also came with a dedicated mobile app, which gave me all data related to my business in real time.
Expand ERP also solved the problem of a huge paper trail. Accounting became automated, and so did attendance and performance evaluation. The software also allowed us to consistently meet industrial standards by implementing a checkbox system. Through data analysis, I learned new insights about expanding my business.
It will not be an understatement to say that Expand ERP has revolutionized the way my company operated. Problems of the past don’t haunt us anymore, all we now see is a bright horizon.
