Acumatica Estimating

No matter how you approach your manufacturing processes, it all starts with estimating. Estimates provide you the details and the deeper understanding of what goes into an item, allowing you the insights you need to deliver a bill of material or sales order. 

Why Estimating Matters Now More Than Ever to Today’s Manufacturer

Estimating has always been an important process for manufacturers. However, in an environment where finding and switching suppliers is easier than ever, providing a fast and accurate quote could be the difference between landing and losing a client.

While many vendors may offer an option to provide estimates, few deliver the speed and complete view that you need. Estimating, part of Acumatica’s Manufacturing Edition delivers this, providing users with a fast, flexible, and easy to use estimates that take into account every aspect of the process, including material, overhead, labor, and other miscellaneous costs.

Designed and built for manufacturers by manufacturers, Acumatica Manufacturing Edition helps you to streamline your operations, reduce costs, and see the entire picture.

Key Features of Acumatica Estimating

Whether it’s a quote filled with custom orders or an easy to replicate one, you are in control, easily converting it to a bill of material or sales order. Acumatica makes it easy to calculate costs and prices for new or existing parts using material costs, work center rates, and overheads. Here are just some of the features of Estimating.

Estimate Non-Inventory Items

You need to provide fast and accurate estimates whether the items are part of normal production or not. With flexibility delivered in Acumatica, you can easily estimate items not currently in your inventory and provide information by attaching notes, files, and item attributes to the estimate.


Create New Inventory Items

Easily convert non-inventory items to inventory stock or non-stock items. Create inventory items and generate a bill of material from an estimate.


Create Production Order

Configured to work with your business needs, Acumatica will facilitate production orders. With just a few clicks, you can create a production order directly from an estimate.

Sales Integration

Designed to connect not just manufacturing processes but your entire business, Acumatica makes it easy to attach an estimate directly to, or against, a sales order or an opportunity in Acumatica Customer Management. Create a sales order directly from the estimate.

Multiple Sites

Getting a product to your customer quickly and efficiently may require you to plan around a local facility. Easily create estimates from all your company locations with multi-site architecture.

We can now place orders faster and react to sales quicker. As a result, I think we’ll be able to reduce our total inventory by somewhere between $1.5 million and $2 million dollars.
