Use our complimentary Manufacturing Management System Evaluation Checklist to compare Acumatica’s Manufacturing Edition with two other leading vendors to find out.
What our manufacturing ERP software checklist will tell you
Manufacturing companies such as yours rely on business systems that can effectively handle your sales, production, and fulfilment processes. These systems must be able to seamlessly integrate so that every person—from the C-level executive to the employee on the shop floor—is on the same page, at the same time (in real time), and from wherever they happen to be. In addition, you deal with production planning and control challenges, which include ever-changing customer demands, the need to balance supply with demand, new methods and technologies, and managing resources and inventories to control costs.
With our ERP for manufacturing evaluation checklist, you can take a comprehensive look at top manufacturing ERP vendors to see which one meets your business management needs and will also make your life easier. The manufacturing checklist allows you to directly contrast the cloud ERP features and benefits of each vendor based on the categories of productivity, functionality, technology, value, and risk.
Let’s take a brief look at a few of the features from the different categories. The right manufacturing production software should:
- Be intuitive
- Have true universal availability
- Provide multi-language and multi-currency capabilities
- Support standard accounting functions (e.g. GL, AP, AR, Cash Management, Tax Management)
- Help with product structure control (e.g. BOM costing, custom configurations, and more)
- Manage production with material requirements planning (MRP) and advanced planning and scheduling (APS)
- Have integrated business intelligence
- Be true cloud
- Scale as you grow
- Provide predictable monthly costs
As you go through all the features and benefits noted in the checklist, you’ll find that Acumatica’s manufacturing ERP software meets each one.
“Acumatica was able to handle the full end-to-end functionality, it was cloud-based, and it was exceptionally cost-effective,” says Acumatica customer Derek Szabo, Managing Director of Devil’s Peak Brewing Company, about Acumatica and Acumatica’s Manufacturing Edition.
He goes on to say that Acumatica has given them improved control and visibility into their beer-making business. “Full supply chain visibility will enable us to target the areas where we have issues and tackle them, to ensure we are operating efficiently and driving growth across sales, supply chain, manufacturing and finance.”
The company plans to add new regions and products, and Derek feels confident that Acumatica will help them handle the complexity that comes with growth. You can read about their successful Acumatica ERP implementation in the Devil’s Peak Brewing Company case study.
