Your Bill of Materials is at the very heart of your manufacturing process. Here’s why you may benefit from using BOM software.
As a manufacturing business, you’re always looking at ways to improve your daily practices. Looking for ways you can save time, ways to save money and ultimately create a better experience for your clients. While saving time and money through cloud-based practices is often recommended and using remote workers rather than in-house employees is a great way to lower costs and bring in candidates from a wider talent pool, there are other ways you could streamline your manufacturing processes and help employees across your company reap the benefits.
I’m talking about investing in BOM software. Your Bill of Materials is at the very heart of your manufacturing process, it lists extensively what kind of parts and components you need to create your products and is the blueprint for the entire assembly procedure. It doesn’t just list resistors, passive filters, inductors, or capacitors, it may also contain a setlist of tools and equipment needed to help bring everything together. Getting this document right and keeping it updated is essential for the day to day running of your business, meeting those deadlines, and exceeding the expectations of your clients.
More people than ever before are turning to Sourcengine BOM and their revolutionary software, to help streamline the entire procurement process, keep track of their costs, and improve accuracy across the board. Could your company benefit from using BOM software? Read on to find out.
A BOM is incredibly important for the running of your business. Without it, it wouldn’t take long for things to fall apart. However, an inaccurate BOM can be just as damaging. Whether it’s been picked up by different employees, saved in numerous places, edited and changed pre and post orders, it’s difficult to know who has the most recent version. Without accurate information, those on your shop floor will be unable to start any kind of assembly process, holding your business back and causing you a real-time and monetary headache.
BOM software eliminates all these problems and more. By uploading your BOM directly onto your personal dashboard, you and your staff will always have access to the latest version and know exactly which components have been ordered. Reducing the risk of duplicate parts of multiple orders.
As a manufacturing business, keeping costs low is incredibly important, and part of the procurement process is trying to find the very best price for a multitude of parts and components. This is a painstakingly slow process, one which doesn’t always result in the lowest price you need! But with BOM software from Sourcengine, you’ll get to compare the prices of the parts you need from thousands of fully vetted and traceable vendors, as well as having access to the latest deals. This saves you and your business money, every step of the way.

Any component part purchased by Sourcengine’s BOM software comes with a three-year warranty and as all vendors and suppliers are fully licensed and vetted for their reliability and their high-end service, you can shop with total peace of mind.
