Six Ways That Business Intelligence Can Expand Manufacturing Margins

Profit margins in manufacturing sometimes feel like they are frozen in place or, worse, facing a continuous squeeze that can minimize and even erase profits. According to Sageworks, a financial information company, many manufacturers were working for free last year, with flat or negative margins.

In many cases, because of all the effort involved, companies miss the opportunity to implement changes ahead of their competition.
