Manufacturing companies have embraced Acumatica cloud ERP with enthusiasm. This makes perfect sense to us. We have worked with many manufacturers on the implementation of Acumatica Manufacturing Edition. Along with our clients, we find the solution to have high utility for manufacturers, running the gamut from small operations to complex, large-scale organizations.

In terms of features, Acumatica Manufacturing Edition provides a rich set of capabilities for modern manufacturing operations. These include advanced inventory management, Bill of Materials (BOM) and warehouse management. Users can manage production, oversee schedules and track orders while taking advantage of Materials Resource Planning (MRP)—reducing inventory while improving customer service and avoiding shortages. A Product Configurator bolsters built-in estimating tools to give manufacturers control over revisions and pricing for multiple versions of the same product.
