NAPERVILLE, Ill., May 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- In the manufacturing industry, reshoring operations from offshore locations outside of the U.S. is gaining momentum. Manufacturers find that the cost benefits of offshoring are no longer as compelling as they once looked, whereas there are many advantages to reshoring. Those include increased closeness to customers, access to a highly educated workforce, improved quality management, and more stringent protection of intellectual property and sensitive information.
Lee House, Enterprise Sales Leader at Sikich, says, "Reshoring is a complex undertaking that requires manufacturers to establish a viable strategy and manage a significant transition that can make or break a company. At Sikich, we offer decades of experience in supporting the manufacturing industry and the technological expertise that can make reshoring manageable and successful."
Sikich recently published a whitepaper that highlights the most important challenges and opportunities of reshoring. By reshoring, manufacturers can introduce process and business model improvements that might be difficult to achieve without disrupting day-to-day business activities, but that can be performed with relative ease in an operation that is newly coming online. Reshoring companies often find that they can more easily develop closer customer relationships or increase their brand equity and competitive advantages. With modern business management technology and process optimization insight, reshoring can take place as a controlled, low-risk project with measurable milestones and achievable outcomes.
"Companies need to do their due diligence, set firm goals, and carefully plan all the activities and desired outcomes of reshoring," notes House. "Accomplishing this can be much easier if they engage with Sikich to create a versatile, powerful technology infrastructure that can support them before, during, and after the completion of their reshoring initiative." In its manufacturing and reshoring practice, Sikich frequently serves as the trusted advisor regarding software systems and technology strategies. The firm's consultants help clients select and deploy enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems and cloud-based solutions from the world's most renowned providers. As the whitepaper explains, systems and processes based in the cloud can be particularly effective as manufacturers look to benefit from the best of modern business software, implemented in a low-risk, efficient approach.
