Data Storage and Integration with SigmaNEST

We live in an era where majority of business data is captured electronically in ERP and MRP systems on a day to day basis. The challenge we are sitting with is whether this data is firstly being captured correctly or even being captured at all. Secondly, we need to be able to extract valuable information fast. But thirdly we need to be able to display the data in an understandable and readable view so that business decisions can be made quickly. Failing to do so could cost your company valuable time and money.

If you are a SigmaNEST user, you are in the fortunate position where your system can save its data daily in a Microsoft SQL Server database. What is SQL Server? Microsoft SQL Server is a relational database management system (RDBMS) that supports a wide variety of transaction processing, business intelligence and analytics applications in corporate IT environments.

This is a commonly used database system, making it easy to extract information fast. At each save or post event in the software, important data is being saved in database tables and rows. To make use of this data, it can simply be extracted to a report in the software or to a third-party system. This can easily be done using tools like Excel or Power BI where the data can be converted into a dashboard, or even chart views to make it easy to read. Showing data in a readable view is important, but more so using the data correctly can also help you make important business changes in order to steer your business into the right direction.

We are seeing a growing need for SigmaNEST to be able to share data with existing business systems and therefor integration is playing a key part. This makes SigmaNEST the perfect tool which can be integrated with your MRP, ERP or Accounting system. It is more than likely that your current system is running on the same Microsoft SQL database and therefore data can be moved or copied between systems effortlessly and therefor eliminating the need to re-enter information 2 or 3 times over daily.

Mecad Manufacturing can guide you in this process and furthermore help you write this integration between your SigmaNEST software and other business systems. We have important knowledge of new business reporting tools and the SigmaNEST SQL database which we have grown over the past 25 years.
