Worldwide software provider, Cincom Systems of Australia (www.cincom.com.au), is proud to have once again contributed to the biggest event on the calendar for the Australian Manufacturing Industry, National Manufacturing Week.
SYDNEY, Australia – Worldwide software provider, Cincom Systems, was proud to present two successful seminars at National Manufacturing Week 2012. “Driving Information Closer to the Buyer” and “Your Interactive Connected Business” attracted participants from all levels of business who were interested in hearing about developments in enterprise technology.
This year the annual tradeshow focused on innovation, technology and education as Australia’s manufacturing industry faces a changing political, economic and social landscape. In response to this theme, Cincom saw a fantastic opportunity to discuss some of the latest technology trends in business and operations software.
“Your Interactive Connected Business” provided an overview of the shift towards mobile computing in Australia. Mobile computing refers to the ability to process business transactions and access BI information from a variety of mobile devices remotely. For example, Mobile Field Sales software gives roving salespeople the option to quote, close and better manage their customers and prospects without visiting the office.
Combining a sound mobile strategy with a comprehensive ERP backbone such as Cincom’s Priority™ means manufacturing businesses can become adaptable and dynamic, reacting quickly to opportunities and avoiding competitive threats.
Along with Peacock Brothers (mobile hardware supplier) and Flow (data integration specialists), Cincom discussed how the use of innovative technology can turn a process-stagnant company into an interactive, connected business. The demonstration was well received and sparked much discussion among attendees.
Automating processes is not a new idea in the manufacturing world. Before a product can hit the production line, it must first be configured before being sold, which for complex manufacturers, is a common bottleneck.
“Driving Information Closer to the Buyer” was comprised of a Cincom-chaired discussion on the sales and configuration process for complex manufacturers. Key issues that arose included lead times, limitations in responding to tenders and collaborating with your bid partners.
Concluding the session, Cincom demonstrated one particular technology that aims to automate this process: the Enterprise Sales Portal. Attendees were able to watch the inquiry-to-order and bid-management process in real time and ask relevant questions.
Greg Mills, CEO of Cincom Systems Australia, said, “The slogan for National Manufacturing Week this year was ‘Making Manufacturing Stronger’; we saw the seminars as the perfect opportunity to transfer information on some seriously innovative ideas and products. … Innovation is the path to growth and strength, and at Cincom, we are dedicated to business improvement and efficiency, and we love communicating that!”
National Manufacturing Week was held at Sydney Olympic Park from 8th May-11th May 2012. The show attracted over 8,000 attendees from across Australia and abroad.
