Key Benefits

The key benefits to you are as follows:

  • One Solution for your business

    • Acumatica provides feature-rich cloud manufacturing ERP software. Acumatica Manufacturing Edition, formerly known as JAMS*, integrates seamlessly with Acumatica’s Distribution Management, Customer Management, Financial Management, and Project Accounting suites. Acumatica Manufacturing Edition provides real-time coordination of your business activities from one central location in the cloud!

  • Grows with you

    • Powerful and complete functionality for make-to-stock, make-to-order, engineer-to-order, project centric, job shop, batch, and repetitive manufacturing adapts to your business as you grow and change. This means that if your manufacturing plant has to handle both make-to-stock and make-to-order, this ERP package can handle both manufacturing types at the same time. This also means that when you start with make-to-order, and your demand for the same products is growing, that this ERP can handle also make-to-stock to cover the growing demand of that product. 

  • Meet your schedules

    • Respond to demand while optimizing inventory and resources for effectiveness and cost control with Acumatica Manufacturing Edition MRP planning.

      • Inventory is optimized because the MRP gives you a list of the critical items that need to be ordered or manufactured. This way you  you only order what you need at the right time. By the way you can create purchase orders directly from this list of critical items.

      • Resources are optimized since the advanced planning and scheduling looks at the capacity of the machines and labor on the shop floor, and at their availability for usage. Capacity of machines and labor are fully used  at the right time. This way also costs are controlled. 

  • Track your costs

    • Track material and labor costs as you manage your products. Compare standard and planned production costs to actual costs of production. You can plan very well but, execution may still go awry. This ERP will display which actual costs went way above their planned costs.
