AP Tech Group finds spreadsheets incapable of handling demand
With a product that plays such a big part in maintaining complex and valuable equipment the need arose for AP Tech Group to manage inventory and order fulfillment in a more efficient manner as SKUs grew.
After looking at multiple solutions, AP Tech Group decided on Acctivate to help manage operations and integrate with their existing QuickBooks Premier.
With QuickBooks already in place, AP Tech Group had a streamlined start with Acctivate
Acctivate also allowed AP Tech Group to stick with QuickBooks, which Tolbert described as a significant benefit of Acctivate.
AP Tech Group experienced immediate benefits after adding Acctivate
After implementing Acctivate in April 2020, ROI was quickly realized coming from the limited ability to manage inventory and other operations via spreadsheets and QuickBooks.
Lot & Serial Number Management
With Acctivate, AP Tech Group tracks serial numbers for their equipment line and lots for their chemical products.
Acctivate also adds a layer of cost management as true costs are captured per lot or serial number, as well as for raw materials and finished goods during chemical manufacturing.
As AP Tech Group ships about 50 to 100 packages per day, Acctivate optimizes their order fulfillment with key components, including order picking and UPS and FedEx integration.
With the ability to generate pick tickets out of Acctivate and manage the entire process, new AP Tech Group employees can be trained easily on the picking process and the orders can be picked efficiently.
Acctivate’s integration to AP Tech Group’s shipping carriers enables instant access to tracking numbers.
All-around visibility and functionality provide stability for AP Tech Group
