Lawson M3 ERP software is designed specifically to automate and streamline key processes for manufacturers and distributors who make, move, or maintain (M3) processes, and who often have strictly allocated resources. The system encourages better collaboration with customers and suppliers while arranging for optimal capacity and operating efficiency. Lawson is designed primarily for mid-sized to large enterprises. We see it used most often by companies generating more than $100 million in annual revenue, employing at least 100 people, and requiring more than 50 concurrent ERP system users.
Using its open standards, Lawson M3 was designed with smooth implementation and maintenance in mind. Vertical industries supported by the system include healthcare, the public sector, service-oriented businesses, human capital management, equipment, and other organizations. The software serves these companies in 40 different nations throughout the world.
The user interface of Lawson M3 is easily customizable, reflecting the preferences of the user with multiple appearance options. Multiple open sessions of the software can be accessed at once; this way, the user doesn’t have to close one window in order to start a new process within the system. This is a good feature for users operating in fast-paced environments.
Correlations between different data fields can be visualized in the software to provide insight on how key business measurements are linked together, increasing visibility across the manufacturing organization. In addition, the system has web-enabled functionality to increase flexibility and allow better transmission of information.
Lawson M3 provides planning tools for supply chain management, forecasting, and capacity scheduling. The system can support multiple companies and sites, along with multiple different languages and currencies. Consulting, training, and other support is available through Lawson or one of the over 200 companies that make up the company’s partner channel.
