Welcome to Sabre Limited. Our business is all about helping and consulting with manufacturing firms to improve their organizations through better technology. We sell the Microsoft Dynamics product line, specializing in Microsoft Dynamics NAV, Microsoft Dynamics GP and Microsoft Dynamics CRM. We have been implementing ERP in the manufacturing space in South Western Ontario since 1998, when we began helping companies with failed implementations of Visual Manufacturing ERP. Since then we have become experts with the Dynamics line, continuing to help struggling companies with their software.

Sabre recently added a new junior analyst to our team, John. John was present today in a presentation of some manufacturing processes in Microsoft Dynamics NAV (in particular, he was witness to an implementation training session of the ETO module we've developed for the ERP).
This is an overview and idea generator to help you calculate the Return on Investment (ROI) of purchasing and implementing a manufacturing ERP Software.
There are many aspects you should be addressing. Here are a few to consider. I will go into more detail on each on a future post.
1. How do you manage your quoting/estimates? Does paper move from department to department to get all the costs put together? How quickly can you get an accurate quote out the door? What is the cost of taking too long or having errors? A good ERP can ensure that all the departments are working together in real time to ensure an accurate quote is prepared in quick time.
Do you know the value of your work in process (WIP) at any place in time? Are you looking through paperwork or Excel spreadsheets and applying ‘guesstimates’ or formulas to establish your WIP? Are you doing this monthly or just at year end as part of your inventory count? Do you need to reduce your WIP but because you don’t know its value you struggle? Is your WIP too high because you are purchasing all your materials or producing sub-assemblies long before you need them because you don’t have a method to easily manage the lead times and dates for requirements? Do you have a proper manufacturing ERP to help?
If you are running your manufacturing business on an accounting system and spreadsheets you very well may be setting yourself up for a catastrophe.
