Most metals companies know that in order to step into the future, accelerate their digital transformation, and take advantage of advanced technologies, an upgrade to existing systems is likely required. But the system selection process can be daunting and full of risk, leaving metals leaders unsure how to move forward.
The pressure is high to choose the right system. Cross-functional systems affect all areas of a business, and making the wrong choice can lead to costly results. That’s why some metals leaders get stuck in a cycle of uncertainty as they weigh the pros and cons of their options, and others decide it’s safer to stick with existing systems.
What many metals leaders don’t realize is that choosing software is only part of the system selection process. By considering both the software and the implementation, metals companies can increase the chance of experiencing the benefits of technology and decrease the risk of failure.
