Therefore, this particular piece will also highlight the benefits of using different ERP modules to run your leather manufacturing companies and SME’s successfully. Let’s take a closer look at these modules.
Purchase & Supplier Module: The purchase and supplier modules are two individual modules of the ERP software but they work in cohesion. The purchase module is also known as the procurement module and it helps in automating a number of activities involved in the purchase process ranging from managing order requests, maintaining stock levels, negotiating with suppliers to checking inventory, preparing work orders, etc.On the other hand, the supplier module gives tremendous control over the business to manufacturing companies by maintaining good relations with suppliers and maintaining a level of transparency in each transaction. The ERP software with supplier module helps in streamlining communication by keeping suppliers informed at each and every step and allowing companies to maintain purchase activities in line with the suppliers’ capacities and capabilities.
Sampling Module: The sampling module helps in different stages of production and minimizes the loss by keeping a record of a number of things. With the help of the sampling module, management can easily perform the following functions:
1. Able to maintain complete sample information such as current price, anticipated sales volume, estimated time required to produce a sample, etc.
