This advice from Craig Such, MD Azzure IT…

The gridlock of Brexit has dragged the UK economy close to stalling point. Growing numbers of manufacturing and distribution companies are delaying their spending plans, or cancelling their investment all together due to the uncertainty surrounding the current marketplace, and not having a clear view on how Brexit could affect their supply chain.

The current uncertainty in the marketplace is forcing these companies to hoard more inventory, meaning that their stock holding capabilities need to improve rapidly to deal with the increased levels. One way of achieving this is to digitalise your business, and introduce a sophisticated and sustainable business software solution, to give you more control and vision of all of your business processes. This leads to a reduction in waste, and the ability to make smarter, and more accurate decisions.

Digitalisation is now touching every aspect of a business. The introduction of next generation business software is allowing businesses to thrive in this time of uncertainty, automating their stock holding processes and giving them a full and clear overview of their whole business.

It’s critical that UK manufacturing and distribution businesses have next-generation digital infrastructure in place, and the UK has seen and understood this, and is now taking steps to cement its position as a world leader in this field. Future technologies such as full fibre and 5G are making progress thanks to £740m of funding from the National Productivity Investment Fund, and have started to integrate themselves in our manufacturing and distribution businesses already.
