Sage - Peachtree Quantum Manufacturing Edition.

Peachtree by Sage - Quantum Manufacturing Edition.

I would think that this release gives the market a credible and full function manufacturing solution that integrates back to sales and accounting. Small & medium manufacturer now has an alternatives to the cumbersome big manufacturing ERP systems that requires a large teams and resources to run and managed.

Peachtree Quantum Manufacturing just hit the sweet spot, for SMALL Manufacturing companies that is not the level in terms of budget-prices or complexity. (Debatable as some small manufacturer do have complex requirements) They can’t go too entry level accounting + inventory and some bom functions throw in but they are not up to the Tier 2 ERP level.

So Sage release of Peachtree Quantum Manufacturing is just right for them. It scale from 5, 10, 20 to 40 users. Just nice for sme.

“ The new Peachtree Quantum Manufacturing Edition rounds out Sage's manufacturing portfolio by providing a powerful solution at a very affordable price and low ongoing total cost of ownership, and is designed to help manufacturers address the many varied challenges they face daily to stay ahead of their competition," said Connie Certusi, general manager, small business accounting solutions, Sage North America. "

Small to mid-sized manufacturing companies face a host of market challenges; increasing operational and material costs, along with increased competition from larger firms moving down market and pressure from global competitors. Many firms are struggling to maintain profitability with reduced headcount and in the face of inconsistent customer order volume, making it difficult to predict and keep pace with demand.

The new Peachtree Quantum Manufacturing Edition helps small- to mid-sized manufacturers face these and other challenges head on, and is ideal for job shops, custom manufacturers, and make to order and make to stock manufacturers in a variety of industries, such as electronics, medical devices, defense manufacturers, medical/control instruments, transportation, plastics, auto parts, industrial equipment producers, food industries, and process manufacturers. It provides easy to use core accounting and manufacturing functionality to companies that need an out-of-box solution, including inventory control, WIP tracking, multi-level bills of materials, multi-warehousing, work orders, and other key features, at a price small manufacturers can easily afford.
