Last Minute Projects to Close Out 2018

Ending the year with extra budget dollars?  Here are some ideas for small projects for the end of 2018 that will have a big payoff in the new year:

  1. Upgrade your DSI system:  A turn-key Corning Data DSI upgrade is fast, and gets you prepared to add new Forms and mobile applications next year.
  2. Prepare for MRP: A Requirements Planning implementation requires that your item and other planning data is accurate.  Corning Data can audit your current item and planning data and make sure you are ready in 2019.
  3. Update your Forecasting Models: Still relying on spreadsheets or forecasting models that don’t fit your current sales strategy?  Getting your forecasting model structured properly now will make sure you stay on track all next year.
  4. Restructure your Pricing: Labor or materials input costs continue to be volatile.  If your pricing setup hasn’t kept pace, your margins are at risk.  A quick pricing configuration review can help you get back on track to healthy 2019 profitability.
