Bringing new efficiencies to your plant.
In the manufacturing industry, time to market requirements are decreasing, regulations are increasing, profit margins are slimmer and your customers are demanding more product customization just as you’re trying to streamline your processes. Your enterprise needs to live in a world of mass customization. This climate makes cutting costs increasingly important, but you cannot afford to make changes that do not have a positive impact on productivity.
Manufacturing lives in a competitive global economy demanding continuous innovation and continuous process improvement. It’s hard to have a full picture of your manufacturing operations if you lack real-time visibility into information. When there is a disruption of the collaborative flow of information across the organization, productivity, customer service and profitability pay the price.
To support the manufacturing organization’s need for continuous process improvement to drive operational efficiencies and customer satisfaction, you need a suite of products and services. CBE has that suite of products and services and a proven track record in serving the manufacturing industry.
Achieve a more efficient supply chain
You can’t always control the journey from factory-to-warehouse, but you can get better control over the documents and data that drive your supply chain. CBE streamlines your day-to-day logistics operations by making offline and online information more readily available. You benefit from more efficiency, security and cost control.
Data control and management
You need current, accurate data to synchronize supply and demand. Our solutions for manufacturing give you visibility and control over information, so you can respond effectively to change and solve problems quickly.
Supply chain complexity
Supply chains involve routine paper-based processes, but these can create bottlenecks. Manual document handling, storage, copying, and routing create small inefficiencies that quickly add up to a big productivity problem. Don’t let paper-based processes drain productivity. Our solutions bridge the gap between unavailable content—both paper and digital—and the people and processes that need it. Combining smart devices, software, and services, Lexmark refines and automates your workflow to boost efficiency.
Compliance and regulatory concerns
How quickly and easily can you find specific documents for compliance or regulatory requirements or audits? Noncompliance with commerce, safety, and environmental regulations result in fines, litigation, and other penalties.
Regulations differ by region and country and involve complex paperwork in multiple languages. Regulatory and market pressures constantly change, too, forcing you to respond and adapt.
Only an agile, intelligent content management system and smart processes can help. With our end-to-end view of your document processes, we give you a flexible, reliable platform without manual data entry or tedious document distribution steps. Confidential or sensitive information remains secure, and you can find what you need for audit and compliance requests quickly.
