Can an ERP System Be a Key Part of Your Competitive Advantage?

Many of our Customers Would Say “YES”

Too often companies see an ERP System as a necessary evil — forced upon them by their accounting firm, staff, or customers. Those are not our typical customers. Ours, more often than not, see Infor SyteLine (CloudSuite Industrial) as their competitive weapon, delivering firsts throughout their organization, stretching from the board room to the shop floor. They manufacture products that range from huge multi-million dollar custom luxury yachts to tiny printed circuit boards. From engineer-to-order projects that take years to complete, to repetitive products that go from order to manufacturing to shipment in a single day. What does The Lake Companies strive to help our customers accomplish? Quite simply, game changing results.

Our customers range from small and local, to large and international; from one location, to many sites located throughout the world. We have delivered successful results from startups to multi-billion dollar enterprises and all points in between. What they deliver to their customers and suppliers becomes part of their competitive advantage. Our customers deliver speed, efficiency, consistency, collaboration, simplicity, service, performance and an experience that is difficult, if not impossible to duplicate. If everyone has access to the same technology, how can The Lake Companies make Infor SyteLine (CloudSuite Industrial) a competitive advantage over any other ERP system? The answer is easy; nobody else knows our methods and business strategies. They are simply implementing technology. We are implementing SYSTEMS that leverage technology, yet go far beyond technology. The results are a competitive weapon that provides a foundation for your company to scale many times your current size without holding you back. We have customers who before SyteLine had great products, but after created a cash machine that fuels their growth and competitiveness. Our expertise mirrors the fit of SyteLine.

We have successes with the following types of manufacturers:

  • Project Oriented
  • Engineer-To-Order (ETO)
  • Configure-To-Order (CTO)
  • Make-To-Order (MTO)
  • Assemble-To-Order (ATO)
  • Make-To-Stock (MTS)
  • Repetitive
  • Lean
  • Any combination of above (Mixed Mode)

Our Goal: Game Changing Results for Your Business

There is nothing more satisfying than seeing our customers endlessly grow, which is proof that what we do works. Fortunately, we have experienced this with consistency across industries for both small and large companies. We have had customers who have bought Infor SyteLine (CloudSuite Industrial) for just one reason, that being because of the respect they had for their own suppliers who also used it. Our definition of game changing results is the ability to influence your prospects, customers, and suppliers in positive fresh ways. These give you incredible advantages. Let us help you deliver firsts that will have your competition scrambling to figure out how you do it, while you seize the most profitable business from them.

Implementing Infor SyteLine (CloudSuite Industrial) for Over 30 Years

We are fortunate to work with more manufacturers in a single week than most companies see in a year. Our SyteLine experience blew by 500 man-years with just 38 people. That meant we are not rigging the numbers with bodies, but rather winning the game with longevity. Our people are highly experienced, extremely qualified, and compassionate no matter what pressures you face. Read about the results and the compliments we have received from our clients. That should give you the confidence that we deliver what we say and do it in game changing ways.

Scale Your Strengths, Strengthen Your Weaknesses

In order to be game changing, an ERP system has to allow you to scale your business. More importantly, it has to be able to scale the business while scaling the profits of the business just as fast, if not faster than before. That does not happen with an ERP system alone. While many ERP providers mention “best practices”, they suggest that the steps you perform to operate their software is the definition of best practices. In reality, every business is unique and their internal needs are different. Real best practices are time proven strategies that consistently grow companies larger, better and faster. We have acquired those strategies not by the software we use, but rather by the associations we have with industry transformers. Our involvement with industry transformers have resulted in the methods, tools, strategies and systems that take ERP to another dimension. That dimension comes from scaling your strengths while strengthening your weaknesses, allowing your company to grow beyond boundaries that limited your success in the past.

Personalized for You

Infor SyteLine (CloudSuite Industrial) provides the technology foundation to grow your organization by automating many of our unique strategies in ways that are personalized to your business and your people. The result is the ability to grow and to enjoy the ride along the way.
