5 Signs a Job Shop Needs New Accounting and ERP Software

Effective enterprise resource planning (ERP) is important to all manufacturers, but may be even more so for job shops. Your business is unique, and the unpredictable, on-demand operational pace can put a huge strain on staffing and financial resources. And, if you’re managing your job shop business with Excel spreadsheets, homegrown software or a basic accounting system, you may be doing yourself and your company a disservice.Jobshop-11.jpg

Many of our customers ask us, “How do you know when it's time to upgrade to a more robust accounting or ERP solution?” Recognizing the signs isn't always easy, so here are 5 questions to ask yourself:

  1. Do you struggle getting the inventory visibility you need to ensure that demand can be satisfied?
  2. Are you entering the same information into several different systems or spreadsheet?
  3. Are your quotes and cost estimates inaccurate and taking too much time to generate?
  4. Do you have difficulty getting the job costing information needed to make timely decisions?
  5. Are you concerned about the ability of your existing financial/accounting system will fit your future business needs?

If you answered "yes" to any of the questions, then you may be ready to step-up to new ERP software that can handle your business needs now and into the future.
