Lawson Software has made available two new analytics applications, Lawson M3 Analytics, and Lawson M3 Analytics for Manufacturing, which can be deployed in a matter of days to help companies improve decision making and find cost savings.
The core offering, Lawson M3 Analytics, focuses on four key business areas: sales, finance, procurement and warehousing/logistics. M3 Analytics for Manufacturing provides additional manufacturing-specific analysis capabilities focusing on production and order costing processes.
The application includes more than 70 pre-configured key performance indicators (KPIs) and 50 pre-built scorecard reports commonly used by manufacturers and distributors. Sample KPIs include day sales outstanding, inventory turnover, delivery performance and gross margin percentage. Sample scorecards highlight critical data such as sales vs. budget, supplier performance, production variances and customer debt.
By packaging a specific set of KPIs and scorecards for manufacturers and distributors, the solutions provide customers with a more complete, measurable view of their operations in a few short weeks.
