Material Requirements Planning (MRP) in Acumatica

As a manufacturing firm, your business is built on connecting your customers with the products you make. But to get from raw materials to finished product—and from finished product into your customers’ warehouses or hands—you need to understand how things move. Enter Material Requirement Planning software, designed to provide optimal inventory levels and improved customer service.

Material Requirements Planning: Trusted for Years, Modernized for Today

Manufacturers know the value of Material Requirement Planning software—and have known this for decades. A solution used long before ERP, MRP software helps manufacturers to connect manufacturing processes, purchasing plans, and forecasts, using information to optimize inventory usage while continuing to deliver for customers.

Part of any good manufacturer’s software toolbox, many solutions deliver the same basic functionality, but not all solutions are the same. A solution may be able to facilitate the forecasting process and connect multiple locations, but few provide the real-time visibility you need in today’s manufacturing landscape.

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