The Benefits of Technology Integration

Achieving digital transformation goals means shifting your business away from multiple spreadsheets, and paper files, to selected technologies that are appropriate for your business.  This allows you to organize and share your data enterprise-wide. This enables businesses to automate processes, saving time by eliminating manual steps, reducing errors and bottlenecks, while also providing real-time visibility. Technology Integration means increasing productivity, collaboration and streamlining their operations.

MLC agrees that the benefits of technology integration are enormous for both companies and consumers.

However, MLC believes implementing new technology over bad practices is not wise. A piece of technology will not always be the end all cure.  Many companies have experienced setbacks and lost profits due to poor planning and mis-aligned implementations which result in negative outcomes for the organization. Successful execution of technology requires assessing and evaluating the current and future state at the front end; identifying gaps, planning and design, and testing, execution and close monitoring.  In addition change management is essential and includes adoption, and alignment with key stakeholders at all levels within the organization.

When planned properly technology integrations will result in happier employees, heightened levels of customer experience, which ultimately leads to greater company growth. With the right approach, you can reap all the benefits of digital transformation and become more effective in meeting the organization’s goals and while fulfilling the customer needs.

If you are hesitant about technology integration, or implementations in your organization, let us show you the benefits behind it. Contact MLC & Associates, and our experts will explain everything in more detail to help you make a better choice.

WMS, ERP, and Program Management Implementations Strategies

WMS Implementations

A Warehouse Management System (WMS) implementation is crucial to the success of your warehouse operations. The wrong choice could leave you with an expensive mess that will take months, even years to address and recover from. A good WMS implementation aims to streamline warehouse operations, ensuring processes are efficient, minimizing errors, inventory is stored properly, while providing visibility in real-time, and making sure products get out the door on time! It also empowers companies with greater control to drive business, make better decisions and reduce spending more time on areas that are not productive.

ERP Implementation

Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) implementation planning is necessary for companies today as they struggle with broken processes, lack of visibility, human error, internal spreadsheets, and countless applications making it difficult to run a business effectively.  ERP solutions and proper ERP implementations with effective project management will guide companies to the finish line to obtain streamlined processes, enterprise visibility, empowering collaboration, and reducing costs.  A successful implementation allows companies to increase revenue and growth and manage efficiently for the long term.  At MLC we know how much planning and coordination with an organization’s internal departments, customers and 3PLs is necessary with these critical projects.  We also work with your ERP solution/platform subject matter experts to ensure a smooth process in alignment with your people and processes to guarantee a successful implementation.

Program Management

Program management focuses on the portfolio of an organization’s projects.  MLC supports companies in implementing methods to provide quality controls such as management of budgets, resources, tasks and scope to accomplish the intended final results.  A Program Management Office (PMO) provides expert advice in supporting set up, management of programs, gate controls, identifying problems and providing root cause analyses to optimize results.  Many organizations sense they lack in PMO expertise and may require additional support during such major transitions. Assistance and expert advice are what MLC provides, ensuring the adoption of practices and controls that ensure effective performance.  This results in organizations managing change and priorities better while measuring performance against their strategic goals.
