Acumatica — The Swiss Army Knife of ERPs
When entering a building most of us don’t think about the steps required to get a new structure off the ground. Many pieces of equipment, countless materials, people, and processes are involved before the lights go on and the owner moves in. A project like this requires participation between manufacturers, distributors, and construction firms.
Solving For Industry Challenges
Older systems like QuickBooks don’t solve for challenges faced by manufacturing, distribution, and construction companies. And with the onset of COVID, many companies have shifted to a more permanent mobile work environment, finding themselves needing to upgrade costly IT infrastructure to access their ERP software remotely.
Some companies migrate to cloud software instead, solving for the following challenges:
- Software providers that don’t understand their industry.
- Duplicate and error-prone data entry in multiple systems.
- Lack of scheduling and project management tools
- Field service apps that don’t connect to the back office.
- No real-time visibility into inventory or purchasing.
- Lack of information between design, shop, field service, and billing departments
- Lack of consistent and rational pricing for parts and materials across the organization
- No way to schedule and track production and send job information to the billing system
- Manual, inefficient, and inaccurate tracking of costs with spreadsheets
- Inability to provide customers with real-time visibility
