Tapping Into Your Data

For those manufacturers and distributors wanting to harness the power of predictive analytics, cloud ERP applications are one of the most comprehensive repositories of operational data. By tapping into this data, managers and executives can identify opportunities to meet and surpass their business objectives such as reducing costs, increasing profitability and revenues or smoothing out their supplies chains. There is no larger application than manufacturing ERP or distribution ERP. Adding analytics accentuates the value of these types of systems.

For instance, Rootstock’s cloud ERP system provides its users with a detailed overview of their business, with over 600 objects and 15,000 fields. If you are interested in applying predictive analytics to your cloud ERP data and you are a Salesforce user, you need to learn how Salesforce Wave Analytics apps empowers manufacturers to get smarter about their production operations, making it easier than ever for anyone to explore data, uncover new insights and take action instantly, from any device, including mobile.
