High Tech Manufacturing

“Since deploying Microsoft Dynamics AX, we have reduced manufacturing IT costs by $96 million. The Microsoft Dynamics solution contributes approximately $50 million of those savings.”

Matt Griffiths, Executive Director of Manufacturing, Dell

The fast pace and global nature of the high technology industry demands continual innovation, speed, and agility. High tech manufacturers face tough challenges in the pursuit of success: ever-shorter product lifecycles, unpredictable demand caused in part by a continual stream of new products, and price erosion stemming from fierce worldwide competition.

You have to optimize a global supply chain to ensure the right products reach the right customers at the right time for a competitive price. Too much inventory or delays in getting products out the door can quickly hurt the bottom line.Get a Value Assessment
