Whitepaper: What Do Manufacturers Look for in ERP Software?

February 09, 2018 / 0 Comments / in Dynamics 365 Enterprise, Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations, Acumatica Cloud ERP, Acumatica ERP, ERP solutions, Benefits of ERP, Manufacturing Software, Uncategorized / by Nancy Phillippi

Choosing new manufacturing ERP software that includes great general ledger, accounts payable, cash management, etc., is fairly easy. Decision makers should look for features like easy inter-company transactions perhaps for a complicated process, great reporting and drill-down capabilities. The manufacturer has a much greater challenge. In the last 20 years I have been selling manufacturing solutions and nine times out of ten, the business leaders are not concerned with how the GL or any of the financial modules work. They ask if the software has financial modules and do they work. Often our demonstrations end with financials, or we schedule them for another day, since really what the prospect wants to see is how the software will handle their manufacturing operations.

I came across this whitepaper by Nick Castellina, the VP and Research Group Director at the Aberdeen Group and thought I would share some of the results of a survey focused on manufacturing leaders: What do Manufacturers Look For in an ERP Solution? I have been following Nick's work for a long time. He provides insightful information for the manufacturing and distribution industries.

Start and End with Acumatica

This article is going to try to sell you something and I do hope that if you are a small to mid-sized company you don't let that turn you off and read the rest of this article.  I have been selling business software to manufacturers and distributors for 20 years.  If I am selling into the small to mid-sized companies, I often find that the reason they need new software is because they can't function on their old legacy system. These systems can range from a custom database for operations, and QuickBooks for accounting, or software that even I have never heard of.  The focus of the business has been developing a customer base and ensuring plant equipment and inventory as the top priority.  They are talking to me because they are in pain due to the lack of the tools needed to do business in today's world.  Why not start with a decent software solution at the before your huge growth cycle?  This really has not been possible until now with the cloud ERP solutions like Acumatica a FULL featured business software that can be used on ANY device.  Please read on...

Selecting Inventory Control Software

August 09, 2017 / 0 Comments / in ERP Software, ERP solutions, inventory control, inventory management, inventory software choices / by Nancy Phillippi

Selecting a new accounting software package can be a monumental task that nearly every C level professional has had to do or will have to do sometime during their career.   Add inventory control and manufacturing to the list of requirements and the task can be even more challenging. Company executives don't want to under or over buy an ERP solution.  The goal should be to have a solution that won't require a major upgrade for a few years (even on a SaaS model), and flexible enough to meet all the business needs over the next 3 - 5 years.  In our current business environment acquisitions are fairly common, which means the software you buy today may need to run a completely different line of business in the future.

6 Manufacturing Problems ERP Solves

Manufacturers face various challenges every single day. The challenges may vary from one manufacturer to another. However, there are common problems facing all the manufacturers alike. Some of these issues can be addressed using personalized company policies or well-designed SOPs (Standard Operating Procedures)  while others can be addressed by implementing a good integrated ERP system.

An ERP system is designed with numerous business applications which are then integrated within the system, but with each individual tool managing specific operations of the organization. Here are the six manufacturing problems that can be solved using ERPs:

Researching the Cost of Dynamics NAV?

Woman contemplating price of NAV

Dynamics NAV does not come in a box with a bar code, so it’s difficult to get a true definitive price before an actual quote or implementation.  Reason being, no two businesses are the same, the standard factors affecting ERP implementations are usually coupled with many different elements that drive different levels of customization and affect ERP implementation costs. However, there are several buying options that can help any CEO or CFO know NAV’s ballpark price before entering negotiations with any partner.  Even though the research can seem daunting, 110,000 businesses have already implemented this powerful business software.

In the “What’s my price?” e-book, Microsoft presents the factors a business person should take into account to determine the total cost of implementing Dynamics NAV.  Below find many of the factors that affect ERP implementation costs, including a few of those often overlooked:

Manufacturing products without a factory would have seemed impossible a few years ago. However, the “impossible” is slowly taking shape thanks to additive manufacturing, also known as 3D printing. This relatively new technology is ready to deliver a small, “mobile” factory to every OEM, MRO, and repair shop. In fact, a number of businesses are embracing additive manufacturing as a temporary or permanent manufacturing solution, as you read these lines.
