Modern manufacturers come in all shapes and sizes. In fact, many of them don’t physically manufacture anything themselves at all, choosing rather to focus on designing an awesome product and leaving the dirty work up to someone else. But regardless of who does the manufacturing, and where it is done, having the ability to create and communicate an accurate and flexible bill of materials (BOM) is an important foundational element of the product lifecycle.
From Internet of Things and machine learning to advanced business intelligence and new business models, the supply chain of today looks very different than it did even 10 years ago. At NetSuite we recognize these trends, embrace them as the future, and are adding more product functionality to help our customer capitalize on them.
Like many family-run businesses, MotoAlliance, a manufacturer and distributor of power sports accessories, had humble beginnings. Maury Kapsner, the president of the parent company M&L Industries, built a contract machining business and then started making accessories for all terrain vehicles (ATVs), such as bumpers and rack extenders under the name of MotoAlliance.
