Distribution Edition offers several ease-of-use improvements. Improved discount functionality will save time in sales, order management, purchasing, and accounting. New landed cost document types capture and allocate landed costs while streamlining purchase receipt processing. They also provide landed cost allocation capabilities. The purchase return process enhances control over returns, including the necessary accounting transactions. Improvements to shipping functionality enable you to accurately match freight costs to shipments and reduce operating costs.
Manufacturing Edition delivers enhancements in Advanced Planning and Scheduling (APS), equipping manufacturers to consistently and cost-effectively set accurate and reliable delivery dates. Engineering Change Control provides additional revision status controls in the BOM to help you simplify and control product changes, improve product design, and reduce costs. Production Management enhancements streamline production of a stock item and simplify production management. For project-centric manufacturers, the new Project Accounting integration improves project visibility while reducing operating costs over multiple production runs so that businesses can determine profitability for large jobs and contracts.
Field Service Edition provides new functionality for creating a sales quote and a service order from an opportunity, along with the ability to easily copy notes and attachments into orders. Service orders can allocate items and display calculated tax amounts. To address the needs of repair and maintenance companies, we added inventory allocation controls and scheduling improvements that will help organizations ensure parts are ready when appointments are scheduled. Updates to pre-payment and tax calculation on orders make it possible for field workers to complete transactions while on the job. Improved cost tracking provides insights on service order profitability.
Commerce Edition improvements support omni-channel sales. We provided additional sales order processing workflows so that transactions originating from online systems with up-front payments can be processed and calculated differently from transactions entered by salespeople with payment terms.
Construction Edition includes enhancements to the Procore integration for managing field operations through real-time access, as well as upgrades to construction project management. Requests for Information (RFIs) improvements include a lifecycle management capability for requests, notifications, tracking, automatic email linking, and conversions from RFIs to change requests. New project issue management equips all team members to document, communicate, and manage issues on phones, tablets, and computers. Compliance improvements include automatic processing—for example, when a check is issued, Acumatica links it to the Lien Waiver on the bill and pre-fills the amount. Usability enhancements include adding stored materials to pro forma invoices, as well as import and export scenarios to update cost to complete, percentage of completion, and cost of completion for Work in Process (WIP) reporting.
