Core features

XA is a dedicated discrete manufacturing solution that covers every type of manufacturing, including engineer to order, configure to order, and high-volume repetitive manufacturing. A wide range of industries, including automotive, aerospace, industrial equipment, high tech, general metal and plastic fabrication, and defense, trust XA to improve performance and deliver great results at lower total cost than any comparable solution.

XA helps keep your business competitive in today's extremely competitive manufacturing environment. By providing the core functionality you need, critical information delivered to point of use, and embedded social business communication, XA delivers on the promise of ERP—without the downside of monolithic systems.

With XA, you get:

Social communication for business

XA provides embedded social features that help you accelerate your processes and solve problems faster.

Unmatched security

No IBM Power System has ever been brought down by a virus or malware. That's why leading banks and casinos trust the IBM Power System to ensure zero downtime.

Global capability with local deployment

Deploy XA locally according to the needs of your business, while managing the whole enterprise as one source of information, one workflow and event management system, one mobile platform, and one user interface across all instances.

Business process coverage

XA supports every phase of your business process, including prospect to cash, source to pay, financial reporting and management, and design to manufacture.

Information power to your users

XA pushes relevant information to the user at the moment it is needed, and the entire system is an ad hoc query tool everyone can use with a simple right click.

Minimal IT costs

IT costs for the overall XA solution are typically 40% less than ERP systems running on any other platform. XA customers typically spend less than 1% of sales on IT costs.

Proven globally
