These systems are viewed as a central hub of data where the access and management of critical data is simplified. Another aspect that organisations are paying attention to is the mobility of ERP systems that need to be available from any mobile device anytime and anywhere to increase access to critical data on the go.

Over the years, mgm Software has served numerous clients including startups and small and midsize businesses.
A case in point is that of a bakery that supplies bread to numerous eateries, resellers and hotels. As widespread among small craft businesses with a long history their organization has grown with their business and mostly been adapted. Then they reached the point where they needed an efficient planning and organization tool for handling orders, planning resources and optimizing their production. With mgm Software, the bakery decided for a step by step implementation of a comprehensive solution package in its final version, consisting of four core modules (ERPcore, mgmWM, mgmPPS, mgmCRM) and some additionally modules out of the other core modules. The bakery knew exactly when they had to deliver, how much, to which customer and how to use their resources efficiently. They shifted from a single shift to 3-shifts to produce more bread in the same time. This way the bakery’s production accelerated in a streamlined manner increasing efficiency and profits. This case shows mgm Software’s openness to every line of business and how it can help boost the efficiency of even craft businesses like that of a bakery.

We act as partners and figure out together with our clients how the software best suits and supports the company and where to potentially optimise business processes as well,” mentions Mühlegger. By actively listening and “talking the same language”, combining it with their multifarious experience, the company is always open for new ideas and ways to work out the best possibilities for the clients. “In our point of view, even companies in the same areas are more or less unique and have special needs to be addressed.” This is the reason potential clients can expect personalised presentations, the first impression of the software, and an all-embracing workshop from mgm Software. This way the company gets a comprehensive overview and deep insights necessary to collectively find the software solution that is a perfect match for them. “Our aim is to provide a solution that enables our clients to perform efficiently and sustainably and one that can grow with their business and needs. We want them to be a step ahead,” he adds.
