Order Management for Manufacturing
In the manufacturing world, the ability to source, receive, produce, and sell products efficiently is among your top concerns. Whether you run a make-to-stock, make-to-order, engineer-to-order, project centric, job shop, batch, or repetitive manufacturing business, the way this happens is different, but the fact remains the same, if you can’t manage orders, your business is going to suffer.
From increasing margins to delivering on customer expectations to keeping your inventory at a manageable level, manufacturers need an order management solution built to handle both purchasing and sales with ease. Enter Acumatica.
Integrated and Intelligent Order Management Software from Acumatica
Built in the cloud and built to work with your unique business, the right order management solution can help you know your costs, reduce order times, take control over pricing, and automate workflows so that you can focus on what matters most: Manufacturing.
The Order Management module, part of the Acumatica Manufacturing Edition, gives you the tools to deliver better customer service, improve vendor relationships, and eliminate paperwork while providing all stakeholders with greater visibility into order management processes.
Offering complete visibility into both sides of the equation, Order Management makes it easy to create sales quotes, sales orders, and purchase orders without hassle.
Key Features of Acumatica Order Management
By helping products flow through your organization and allowing you to focus on producing and shipping products, you gain complete control over the way you work. Here’s how Acumatica delivers:
Process Sales Orders in a Centralized Location
Order processing software from Acumatica lets you manage sales activities centrally. You can enter quotes, fulfill sales orders, track prices, apply discounts, and check available inventory.
Take Control Over Product Flow with Sales and Purchasing Integration
Link sales orders with purchase orders and allocate received items to orders. Acumatica makes it easy to automatically generate purchase orders or create manual links. Auto-hold sales orders until you receive a purchase order.
Connect with CRM for Complete Visibility
Don’t leave your sales team out of the process. With CRM integration, you can easily convert CRM opportunities into sales orders without re-entering pricing and discount information.
Get the Best Prices with Vendor Bidding
Eliminate paperwork and speed the bidding process by emailing requests to multiple vendors. Make the purchase with a single vendor or select multiple vendors for different products on the request.
Plan Costs How You Need with Landed Cost Functionality
Plan your sales and purchasing the way your business works with landed cost functionality that allows you to allocate costs, add shipping and handling costs, and link all of this with Accounts payable for even more speed.
Control and Track Workflows with Multilevel Approval and Audit Trails
Create approval rules for order types, vendor information, order amount, and other order-specific information. Understand the who, what, and why with integrated audit trails.
Simplify Your Role in the Value Chain with Invoice Consolidation
Consolidate multiple shipment orders onto a single invoice— automatically or manually. Update price and discount information on review before printing the invoice and updating accounts receivable.
Reduce Emails and Hiccups with Credit Limit Verification
Check credit automatically during order processing (before release). Auto-release a credit hold when a payment is entered, or an order amount is decreased. Manual hold override is available to authorized users.
“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.“
– Patrick Sauter, Vice President, Dakota Red Corporation
