Small Business Manufacturing Software | 5 Affordable Options

18 07 2011

We talk to a lot of small manufacturing firms. Many of them are still using spreadsheets to track inventory, plan their bill of materials (BOM), and schedule production. These manufacturers are looking for a better way to get stuff done, but they don’t have an appetite for expensive ERP systems. To help manufacturers that are ready to leave the world of spreadsheets and manual processes behind, we put together this guide on small business manufacturing software.

What constitutes software for a “small business?” We drew the line at vendors that serve manufacturers with million or less in annual revenue. From there, we narrowed our analysis down to five manufacturing software products and dug in. Here are the five vendors that made the cut.

epicor-express.001.png

Epicor Manufacturing Express Edition (Epicor Express) debuted in May of 2010 and has quickly garnered the attention of small and medium enterprises (SMEs) as a cost-effective solution. The system is a full-suite offering that can handle finances, CRM, MRP, SCM, among others. The product is offered only through software-as-a-service (SaaS) deployment. This means the software is hosted by Epicor and accessed through a web browser. Buyers will pay a subscription price and won’t have to purchase the server hardware to run the system. We like Epicor Express because it gives manufacturers flexible accounting options and room to grow. For manufacturers that outgrow the system, Epicor has a long line of products that can serve manufacturers of any size.

Exact-JobBOSS.001.png

Since it’s founding in 1984, Exact JobBOSS has grown from a small garage-based operation into one of the most popular manufacturing systems in the world. As the name might suggest, JobBOSS is a system specialized for job shop management, and is best suited for contract, make-to-order, and mixed mode manufacturers. Exact JobBOSS excels at handling machining, sheet metal fabrication, spring shops, and machine builders. The system is available in three different versions (Starter, Professional, and Enterprise) with each consecutive version adding a layer of sophistication. For example, the Starter version will include MRP and MES while the Enterprise version will include lean manufacturing capabilities such as meeting Six Sigma quality management requirements. The system is available either as SaaS or on-premise and is an attractive option due to its ability to integrate with Quickbooks.

Fishbowl-Inventory.001.png

Fishbowl Inventory has been an Intuit Gold Partner for the last decade and is now the most requested Quickbooks inventory solution. The system is popular among both manufacturers and distributors that use Quickbooks for their financials but need to get a better handle on their inventories. The software is used by small manufacturers as well as those with over million in revenue. The system covers an impressive number of industries and comes complete with asset management, MRP, MES, SCM, and supplier management. The system also supports inventory processes such as barcoding and cycle counting. The software is available both as an on-premise solution and web-enabled, meaning that the database is kept on site but can be accessed through a web browser.

Intuitive-ERP.001.png

Consona’s lower-end manufacturing option, Intuitive ERP, is the choice of over 800 small to midsized manufacturers across more than 20 countries. The system is a feature-rich offering that contains functionality for MRP, CRM, BI, and financial accounting as well as other functions. Manufacturers that need human resources (HR) or asset management features can obtain the applications from one of Consona’s partners. The system is built on the Microsoft .NET technology and has a user friendly interface that makes it a solid choice for companies installing their first ERP system. Although the system is only offered through on-premise, Consona does offer subscription pricing to make the system more affordable.

MISys.001.png

MISys is a great manufacturing system that manages the shop floor operations of more than 7,000 manufacturers across the globe. MISys is ideal for manufacturers that currently run a separate accounting package (e.g. Sage Peachtree or Simply Accounting) and are looking for a manufacturing add-on. The system contains functionality for MRP, MES, SCM, and supplier management. One unique thing about MISys is the ability to add modules to the system as they are needed. For example, a basic manufacturing package can be upgraded to include serial and lot tracking or advanced planning modules. Like Intuitive ERP, this system is also built on Microsoft .NET and is formatted to reflect the common look and feel of Microsoft documents.

Which Systems Serve Your Manufacturing Mode?

It’s important to select software that supports your mode of manufacturing. Otherwise, you’ll be stuck trying to adapt your software to business processes it wasn’t designed to handle. Here’s a look at the modes of manufacturing supported by each product.

Which Systems Offer the Applications You Need?

The final area to consider is the functionality of the system. Most manufacturing software will have features for material requirements planning (MRP) and manufacturing execution systems (MES) with some form of supply chain management (SCM). Some will incorporate accounting, customer relationship management (CRM), and business intelligence (BI) features. To help sort through the available features, we created this chart as a quick review of product functionality.

A preview of Gmail’s new look

1 07 2011

We get a lot of great feedback about how Gmail helps you be more efficient, keep in touch with family and friends, and get work done. We’ve saved you from forgetting attachments and made sure that you got the right Bob. Over the years, adding countless features to Gmail has made it an increasingly powerful communication hub, but along the way the interface has also become more cluttered and complex.

That’s one of the reasons we’re embarking on a series of interface updates to help strip out unnecessary clutter and make Gmail as beautiful as it is powerful. This is part of a Google-wide effort to bring you an experience that’s more focused, elastic, and effortless across all of our products. The changes are not going to happen all at once. We know that you love and care about Gmail as much as we do, and we’ll be working on these upgrades gradually over the next few months to allow plenty of time to understand and incorporate your feedback into the evolving design.

We’re kicking things off with two new themes for you to try out as a sort of sneak peek at what we’re up to. Starting today, you’ll see the “Preview” and “Preview (Dense)” themes in the Themes tab in Gmail Settings. Why two themes? Our new interface will eventually expand dynamically to accommodate different screen sizes and user preferences, but until then you can pick the information density that you prefer.

Here’s what one of the new themes currently looks like:

And in conversation view:

Click the images above to see larger versions.

If you poke around you’ll hopefully find a lot to like and a much cleaner, modern look but also few rough edges. In particular, some Labs features may look a little strange in the new themes. We plan to fix these issues as we roll out changes in the coming months. You can also expect some updated themes that embody the same design principles but are better suited to working in a dark environment, use a different color palette, or include the illustrations that we know many of you love to see around your inbox.

Look out for these and other new features over the next few months. In the meantime, try out the new themes as a preview of the future of Gmail and let us know what you think.

P.S. Like Gmail, Google Calendar is also getting a new look. You’ll see it automatically within the next few days so there’s no need to turn it on, and we’ll also continue to make improvements there in the coming months. Details about the current changes to Calendar can be found in the Calendar help center.

THANKS
