ERP Solutions for the Manufacturing Industry

Organizations in the manufacturing space face a constant stream of challenges. From outsourcing to increased demand for customization, being able to change and evolve with customer needs and market trends is a necessity. No matter how you make it, no matter who you serve, and no matter how many steps precede or follow in the value chain, it’s on you to ensure consistent, reliable, and timely solutions to customer needs.

To deliver this accuracy, efficiency, and quality, you need to be in constant control—not only in processes, but in the way you manage money. Constant improvement is the name of the game, and with the stakes as high as they are, you can’t afford to fall behind.

ERP Solutions for the Manufacturing Industry

When constant improvement is the goal, it’s important to rid yourself of the things that stand in the way. Manufacturers have relied on solutions built to handle their needs for the better part of the last century, turning to materials requirements planning in the 60s and enterprise resource planning after that.

But the market for manufacturing ERP has evolved alongside the needs of the manufacturing community. Manufacturing needs are unique, and if you’re in the market for a solution designed to handle the challenges, the right product and partner makes all the difference.

At Kissinger Associates, we have spent decades in the manufacturing space, customizing and configuring solutions for the changing needs of our client base. Whether you’re in the market for a connected and familiar hybrid solution or a true cloud product, our track record is unmatched.

We understand the challenges you face and specialize in customizing, implementing, and training users on two solutions built to handle your needs: Sage 100cloud and Acumatica. No matter where you are on your cloud journey, no matter your size, these two solutions are designed to meet you where you are and put you in a position to achieve your goals.
