A recent survey revealed 63 percent of manufacturing companies exceed their ERP budgets, while tending to experience much bigger overruns. Moreover, manufacturing tends to have a more complicated workflow. Manufacturers need to deal with not just software costs, but also other “hidden” costs like re-engineering, training, and integrating applications. The current scenario urges a need for a one-stop-shop solution which could alleviate and eradicate most of these issues. Headquartered in The Woodlands, Texas, Global Shop Solutions ERP provides a unique manufacturing software that is the sole provider of One-System ERP Solutions.
