Manufacturing is certainly a growing industry. In 2018, it was a leader of U.S. Gross Domestic Product by Industry, experiencing six consecutive quarters of growth. Growth means more business, and more business demands better organization to encourage success.

There’s no doubt that a completely integrated ERP and manufacturing system helps you run your business better. Manufacturing ERP software should integrate your production planning and shop floor processes with CRM, sales orders, inventory, purchasing, accounting, and reporting from one central location.

On top of all that, it should be in real-time.

Acumatica cloud ERP and Acumatica Manufacturing Edition provide this and more.

Manufacturing ERPs: The Total Package

The “more” includes the extremely important ability to create detailed and accurate manufacturing job costing based on capturing details such as labor, materials, machine, and set-up costs. You also have the power to create new estimates quickly and to make multiple revisions without losing the history of the changes, including who made them. How you start the manufacturing process with your potential customer says a lot about how you’ll complete it.

This Manufacturing Job Costing with Acumatica Project Accounting Infographic details how an adaptable and full-featured ERP for manufacturing—like Acumatica and Acumatica Manufacturing Edition—can be the difference between getting the job or losing it to the competition.
