The Best ERP for Manufacturing – Onramp Solutions Supports Aerospace & Defense Businesses
OnRamp Solutions is pleased to offer businesses in the Aerospace and Defense industries with an industry leading ERP program to increase operational efficiencies while uncovering cost savings.
ERP Software for the Aerospace and Defense Industry
The aerospace and defense (A&D) industry is undergoing significant changes globally. It has suffered cuts in public spending, resulting in layoffs and consolidation. Defense contracts have thus become harder to secure as competition increases but funding decreases. However, given global instability in certain regions, defense spending in the West may in fact increase over the coming years.
It’s important to keep in mind other market trends in A&D:
- As space travel becomes more commercialized, firms will see increased opportunities for contracts as brand new markets open up. This includes space tourism and commercial development passed orbit.
- As drone technology advances, expect massive changes to conventional air, sea, and ground vehicle defense programs.
- Given the stagnation of the defense budget recently, aging military equipment will force the market towards a more maintenance and repair approach.
Leverage ERP to Succeed in a Dynamic Market
Your A&D company needs to control costs and streamline its production practices to stay competitive. On top of that, yours and other companies must stay government compliant. Aerospace and defense companies need to grow all the while handling numerous workflows and staying abreast of political, industrial, technology changes. Agility is paramount in this business.
