Competitive Manufacturers Focus on Digitizing SOP and P2P Processes

Within many manufacturing organizations, manual and ad hoc processes that involved data and supporting documents significantly slow down and add cost to key manufacturing processes. Making things even more complex is the fact that the macro business processes in Manufacturing are actually clusters of multiple document intensive processes.

Aside from process complexities and overlapping data from one process to the next, many manufacturing processes rely on their own dedicated process platforms (e.g., MRP/ERP Software, Product Lifecycle Management Software, Supply Chain Management Software, Manufacturing Execution Systems, and Production Scheduling and Control Systems).

This includes processes like:

Product planning and design
Sales and order processing
Distribution and logistics
Customer service

Improve each of these processes with Intelligent Process Automation Platform for the manufacturing industry from Artsyl.

Transform Your Business With Automated Accounts Payable and Sales Order Processing

From Artsyl’s perspective, procure-to-pay and order-to-cash processing are “gateway” processes that are often the low-hanging fruit when it comes to process automation. Procurement and Sales Order Process Automation are both processes that are common to every organization; digitizing and automating document filing, approval routing and transaction data entry for either process typically results in a quick ROI and provides a framework for automation other processes.

In fact, most manufacturers today already have the right systems in place to support automating accounts payable and order to cash. What’s often missing is the ‘connective tissue’ to take advantage of those existing systems and automate the most painful, manual tasks.

Digital Transformation Platforms, like Artsyl’s docAlpha, integrate with existing back end business systems to transform the unstructured data in documents stored in ECM systems into structured data that can be stored and managed in ERP systems—automatically, with minimal human intervention.
