Industry Challenges

Manufacturers are facing familiar challenges: increased global competition, environmental and regulatory pressures, rapid changes in technology, and fluctuating financial markets. While the economies of the U.S. and Europe are growing slowly, there is a dramatic growth, especially in Asia, but also in Latin America and Africa. Manufacturers must quickly adapt to these emerging economies, as well as the corresponding market dynamics they bring to their supply chains and sales channels. Manufacturers must not only address these challenges head on, but also figure out how to do so while retaining the valuable and highly educated employees who remain central to bringing new and innovative products and services to market.

Even the best responses to industry challenges can be constrained by a rigid ERP solution. Jeeves ERP is a cloud-based ERP (enterprise resource planning) software solution for small and midsize businesses with operations in Sweden. Unlike other cloud and SaaS ERP systems, Jeeves ERP delivers a powerful platform service built on a genius architecture that allows you to easily and cost-effectively implement and upgrade a highly custom system on top of a rich standard feature set. These customizations can be done in house, or by Jeeves’ professional ERP services team.

Jeeves ERP is built to address the core challenges and requirements of the manufacturing industry, with the ability to be further optimized to align with your company's unique business processes. The system comes with pre-built workflows, screen dialogues, reports, and business intelligence designed specifically for manufacturers—leading to a rapid system implementation, as well as a rapid system payback.

Jeeves ERP for Manufacturing Overview

Jeeves ERP addresses the core functional requirements of growing manufacturers, including:

International Multi-Company Support

Jeeves supports operations with multiple entities and international groups. The solution is specifically designed to simplify and standardize processes across multiple units within the same company or between companies, with built-in adjustments based on their geographic locations. As a result, you can quickly establish new sales and distribution units or outsource manufacturing and services to anywhere in the world—and all from within a single business system. Create a sales order from a selling unit, and invoice from a delivery unit. Regardless of how your business is configured, you will enjoy enhanced collaboration and increased visibility of your company's global assets and resources.

Jeeves is developed in close cooperation with our customers, often manufacturing companies with international operations. The system is used in more than 40 countries, and is localized and translated into many languages, as well as constantly updated to support local regulations and requirements.
