Industry insight deep and expansive
While most manufacturers have challenges in common, we understand that there are big differences from one industry to the next. ComTec consultants and project managers work hard to know your category almost as well as you—so we can make sure that your ERP system is delivering exactly the results you expect.
Aerospace and Defense
With increasing pressure to reduce price in a business climate of expanding raw material cost and reduced labor availability, aerospace and defense businesses are streamlining and adopting new technology to automate business processes for more competitive lead times. They’re looking to cut waste. ComTec understands the highly specialized processes in your industry, and we can implement an ERP system designed specifically for aerospace and defense.
Whether you specialize in one single, successful device, supply components to other manufacturers, or deliver finished products to the market for manufacturers, you know the intense drive for providing the latest innovative technologies alongside long product development cycles and complex traceability requirements inherently introduce risk. There’s immense opportunity to grow—if you can respond, change, and adhere to the rigorous demands of the industry. The right ERP system can provide you with a framework for managing product innovation with solid product data management, quality process controls, and cradle-to-grave product traceability.
In this industry, lean initiatives are driving many manufacturers to reengineer business processes from the plant floor, to the top floor, to the extended supply chain. ComTec can help you realize business-wide costs savings, reduced cost in raw material and work in process, improved throughput, and better use existing resources.
Electronics and High Tech
In this sector, finished products typically have a life-cycle of six months or less, and competition is coming from around the globe. One week you might be a subcontractor to another vendor. The next week you might sell finished goods. The week after that it might be OEM technology. ComTec understands the global nature of the electronics business and we can help you thrive amid short end-product shelf-lives and drive growth through after-sales support.
Many manufacturers in this industry do business on a global scale. That means being able to meet requirements and speak the language of locations around the world. From the initial customer call to fulfillment, ComTec can help you manage every step along the way—and service your customer after the sale. The right ERP system can help you adapt to an evolving industry, so your product line can grow and change for the long term.
Rubber and Plastics
Many rubber and plastics manufacturers are expanding their traditional business and looking for new opportunities. Some are looking at new markets. Others are simply trying to boost performance. ComTec understands the unique business processes and challenges in your industry, and we can implement an ERP system designed specifically for companies operating in the rubber and plastics sector.
Furniture and Fixtures
The margins are thin in this business and getting thinner due to global competitive pressures, volatile raw material costs, labor demands, and shorter product lifecycles. ComTec can help you reengineer your entire supply chain, improve your performance, and expand into new markets.
The pool of automotive suppliers continues to shrink as only those with the most flexible IT infrastructures can adapt to the increasing demands of automotive customers. ComTec understands the unique demands of the automotive industry. We can help you implement an ERP system that reflects the messaging systems vital to your business, from messaging between factory sites to messaging between the business system and trading partners.
