If you are in the manufacturing industry, you know the challenges of today’s economy. The consistent increase in global competition, product complexity, and technology requirements make driving growth more difficult than ever before.  Yet many manufacturers are thriving despite these challenges. How? By arming themselves with the right ERP platform.  Acumatica is a full-suite, cloud-native ERP application.  Acumatica helps manufacturers like yourself with the tools needed to improve efficiency and increase revenue in these demanding times. Notice a few of the key ways Acumatica is doing this.

Designed for Your Industry

Equipped with a complete Manufacturing Edition, Acumatica provides features specifically designed to meet your needs. This edition is helping companies eliminate inefficiency through such additions as machine requirements planning, inventory order allocations, and barcode automation.

Pat Trefun, CFO of Opflex Environmental Technologies, had this to say about his experience with Acumatica:

“By utilizing the manufacturing edition of Acumatica, we were able to determine

verifiable product costs that allowed us to put together a pricing model. This increased

our gross margin percentage dramatically.”

Streamlined Collaboration

Collaboration is essential for today’s manufacturers. Customers participate in product designs, suppliers need forecast data, and the manufacturing team collaborates daily to make decisions on product design, purchases, production, and orders.

Cumbersome or unreliable collaboration is not an option. That’s why Acumatica uses embedded CRM, B2B, and B2C commerce, and web portals to provide the dependable, consistent, real-time collaboration that your team needs.

Keep Pulse on Your Inventory 

Inventory may be your largest asset, but it is also one of your highest costs. Hold too much and your carrying costs increase with the potential for spoilage or obsolescence. Hold too little, and you could face customer shipment delays and expensive rush orders.

Acumatica helps you optimize inventory levels and automate processes to ensure nothing slips through the cracks.

Patrick Sauter, VP of Dakota Red Corporation has found Acumatica’s inventory management very beneficial for his company. He relates:

“The biggest time savings for us is not having to go out and wander through our yards of

product to see what we’ve actually got on hand. Having a live inventory of what we have

across seven different locations has been a huge time savings for people.”

Yes, manufacturing is challenging enough as it is. You face increased competition, shorter product lifecycles, increasingly complex technologies, and ever-changing compliance mandates. So how can you thrive in the new digital economy with so many moving parts?

Choose a specialized cloud business management software to do the heavy lifting so that you can focus on what you do best: designing and manufacturing great products.
