Mining Works, by Birchman

An SAP Qualified Partner-Packaged Solution (QPPS)

Stop Emergency Orders And Slash Costs

The Emergency Order Nightmare. You know the drill. A critical piece of equipment breaks down and production grinds to a halt. Time is money, so you rush to place an emergency order. The pressure often leads to bypassing your suppliers, therefore blowing your budget and negating negotiated discounts.

Sound familiar?

This can cripple your profitability and leave you feeling powerless. But what if there was a better way?
