Updating siloed software solutions to avoid inefficiencies and waste
Like many industries adjusting to the demands of modern business, the winemaking industry has struggled with its diverse assortment of disparate and one-dimensional business solutions.
Often, siloed solutions across accounting, sales, manufacturing, and warehouse management fail to communicate with one another, leading to manual processes, inefficiencies, delays, and an increased likelihood of human error.
What’s more, these siloed solutions make it difficult to analyze how the business is running and can hamper decision makers by slowing or restricting their access to critical business information.
To compete with industry leaders, winemakers need to have confidence in their ability to securely share important business data and analysis with employees, shareholders, and external vendors via any modern device.
Furthermore, these companies need to deploy simple, modern solutions such as real-time dashboards to display and communicate critical business information in a manner that can be consumed and customized by non-technical end-users. And it isn’t enough for these solutions to exist in the context of a single department, as the KPIs and analyses represented in these dashboards often pull from data sources spanning across the business to ultimately prove useful for employees across disparate departments such as finance, sales, and manufacturing.
