MRO Software Core Tracking

MRO (maintenance, repair and overhaul) companies that we have worked with over the years always have one request: Core Tracking.  This is huge in the Aviation industry and for equipment repair of turbines or motors.  In some instances cores are limited due to the government not authorizing new data tags or the equipment is being phased out.   Clients First knew we had to have this functionality in our new MRO solution: ProMRO or ProFBO for Acumatica.

Making an ERP Decision

Proceeding Confidently When Making an ERP Decision

At Clients First Business Solutions, we’ve been in this business long enough to understand that decision makers and end users alike are often nervous about the idea of an enterprise resource planning (ERP) replacement or upgrade. Whether they have heard horror stories about ERP implementation failures, they’ve read research about dismal success rates, or are just worried about the major change it could have on the way of doing business, there are many reasons someone may want to proceed with caution.

ACU Benefits of the Cloud

Two Hype-Free Guides to Understand the Value of the Cloud

Over the past decade, the cloud has moved from a fringe deployment option designed for small and medium businesses to an enterprise-ready offering that can handle the needs of global businesses or publicly traded companies. However, it’s also likely you’ve heard a lot of hype and exaggeration about the cloud’s game-changing benefits or disruptive design. Read more

Top Reasons to Engage in a Fixed Fee ERP Implementation

Fixed Fee ERP Project

Fixed fee ERP implementation projects used to be something that I dared not speak of with prospects and customers.  Why?  Because I have been selling software for over 20 years and a few years ago accounting, manufacturing and general business software still had the clunky user interfaces, old back-end technology on proprietary databases, and of course the dreaded installation on suspect hardware.  This can eat up consulting dollars before you even get started.  Well, times have changed!  Software like Acumatica which was recently named a leader in ease of use makes it easy for our Acumatica consulting team to setup a customer using predefined setups that fit about 90% of all companies.  Customers get up and running fast and pay the services in 3 installments.  Budgeting for an ERP project has never been easier.   Really, the project has never been easier either.

Manufacturing Cloud Software

How Much Do You Get Back from the Cloud?

The cloud is nothing new, but as the market matures for cloud applications, companies in traditional, conservative industries are jumping on board.

In our last blog, we found that more “leaders” (top 35% of manufacturing organizations), were more than three times as likely to utilize cloud ERP for its ability to provide easy updates, increase agility, and enhance visibility for companies using this deployment method. Today, we would like to look at another key factor in the decision-making process, discussing just how much money the cloud is worth to organizations. Read more

End-to-End Manufacturing ERP

How End-to-End ERP Brings Manufacturers Closer to Their Goals

It’s well known that ERP is prevalent in the manufacturing community, but according to our last blog, few manufacturers are making the most of it. With the manufacturing environment more competitive than ever, the gap between “leaders” and “followers” is broadening. According to recent Aberdeen research, there is still hope, but the window of opportunity is shrinking.

In recent years, leaders, defined by Aberdeen Research as the top 35% of manufacturers, have become more attentive to customer needs, increased their presence on a global scale, and took control of their supply chains, and have begun to pull away from the competition. Notably, as discussed in our last blog and a recent Aberdeen report, there is one major differentiator: Complete, Modern, End-to-End ERP. Read more

Modern ERP Manufacturing Leaders

How Modern ERP Creates Leaders in the Manufacturing Industry

Manufacturers have long used enterprise resource planning to manage their finances, take control of payments, and gain visibility into processes. With nearly every manufacturer using ERP software, the difference between leaders and followers isn’t whether or not they have embraced ERP, it’s how they are leveraging it.

According to the recent Aberdeen Group report on the current state of ERP in manufacturing, leading manufacturers (top 35%) are only slightly more likely to use ERP software than their peers, embracing the software at 97% compared to 88% among followers. This means that the leaders are using the software differently. How so? Read on to find out. Read more
