Dental manufacturers are held to extremely high standards by their customers. Clientele expect their products to always be top tier and delivered on time. To meet the demands of a tough customer base, an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system like Infor CloudSuite Industrial (CSI) can simplify day-to-day operations.
Real-Time Data for Inventory Management
Infor CSI offers you real-time data about your inventory levels, which creates a positive chain reaction for dental manufacturers. Initially, the data visibility makes it simple to see when you need to reorder inventory, what items should be used first using a using a first-in-first-out (FIFO) model, and how much of each item to buy. This clarity allows you to fulfill orders for customers on time because you have the stock you need. Customers hate being left in the dark about their orders, and with the data transparency of CSI, you can be proactive in your communication. Because you know your production volumes, inbound shipments, outbound orders and stock levels, it is easier to know precisely when orders will be completed and when items have been shipped. That data can be used for proactive customer communications that lead to a better overall experience.

Quality Assurance Management
As we mentioned, customers expect dental manufacturers to reliably deliver high quality products, but they aren’t the only ones reviewing your work. The FDA or other regulatory bodies want to ensure that your products consistently meet set standards.
For CloudSuite Industrial users, CAPA requirements can be embedded directly into your ERP so that your system meets the latest standards and regulations. Infor SyteLine (CloudSuite Industrial) allows you to build QA processes and templates tailored to your company. For instance, you can utilize your receiving dashboard to create a method for inspecting receipts and marking receipt data in supplier records. Then, your decision-makers can review QA reports designed to help actively monitor your quality assurance. If you ever do find an issue, it is simple to track by order, lot, or serial number to extract products that may have been impacted.

Automation is one of the major benefits of an ERP like CSI, and for good reason. Automation can save you time while reducing human errors. Here are a few examples of the automations that are possible:
- Exception notifications: these alert select users when production is behind schedule or when an item in inventory falls below the preset reorder level. Not only can managers respond to these issues faster, it also means that they don’t need to constantly monitor operations and stock
- Routine activity automation: eliminate repetitive manual tasks such as sending invoices, late material notices to vendors or order shipping notices to customers. Instead, these messages can be sent using predetermined templates and go out automatically. In turn, your employees can devote their energy to other work that requires their unique skillset
Taking advantage of an ERP is essential for dental manufacturers who want to get ahead of the competition. However, implementing a new system like CSI is faster and easier with a software expert to guide you to maximizing outcomes. At Datix, we recognize that every dental manufacturer has specific needs that must be addressed with their system. Our team will partner with you every step of the way to bring your organization to the next level.
