Published on

For manufacturers using SAP ERP, the news of a production line change, expanded manufacturing capabilities, new facilities or implementation of Lean Manufacturing can bring an equal combination of excitement and dread as the realization hits that the company’s big new plans must include an expensive and time-consuming retrofit of existing SAP manufacturing ERP applications.

FUJITSU GLOVIA, Inc. has developed a hybrid ERP strategy that enables manufacturers to continue benefiting from the operational strengths of SAP ERP modules for financial, human resource and CRM while incorporating the fully SAP-compatible, GLOVIA G2 ERP system for manufacturing operations.
