ERP for Computer Parts Manufacturers
The needs of a growing computer parts manufacturer
As a computer parts manufacturing business grows, managing different functions across a company requires more capabilities than most businesses begin with – QuickBooks and spreadsheets. While for most, QuickBooks has been an integral part of managing the business, it’s time to move beyond using QuickBooks alone. After all, inventory is growing, more orders are being processed, and suppliers and customers are increasing.
The Acctivate ERP solution for computer parts manufacturers is the affordable next step for a growing business. It keeps QuickBooks in place while expanding purchasing, inventory, sales, traceability, and reporting capabilities.

Advanced bill of materials, kitting, and assemblies
An Advanced Bill of Materials (BOM) is a document or data structure that lists the raw materials, components, and sub-assemblies needed to manufacture a product. It is an expanded version of a standard BOM, with additional information about each item in the list, such as part numbers, quantities, and costs.
Whether products are made to stock, made on demand, or a combination of the two, Acctivate’s multi-level bill of materials specifies the components used to build a product and can be used for products designated as either an assembly or a kit.
Acctivate’s ERP solution provides computer parts manufacturers with better insight into critical business data and information. Knowing the required raw material quantities and the inventory needed to meet demand relies heavily on sales trends. Acctivate allows for detailed product history and sales information to be stored together. Using sales analysis, determining quantities to keep in stock to guarantee products are readily available for customers is simplified. This information can be easily accessed and analyzed through customizable dashboards and reporting.
