What is manufacturing inventory software?

Whether products are made to stock, made on demand, outsourced or a combination of all, manufacturing inventory software assists with managing the warehouse, controls inventory, and provides visibility on sales, margins, availability and anticipated current and future inventory requirements.

Acctivate seamlessly integrates with QuickBooks & has the manufacturing features your business needs

Acctivate has the tools to…

  • Manage acquisition, manufacturing, warehousing and distribution activities – in one location or multiple locations throughout the world.
  • Handle discrete, process (recipe or formula), refurbish, remanufacture, custom manufacturing and/or chemical manufacturing.
  • Improve productivity and visibility throughout your manufacturing and business operations.

If your business uses QuickBooks today, but you are finding you need more tools to manage your manufacturing operations and your growing business, Acctivate is your solution.

QuickBooks is great for accounting and financial management but lacks the features needed to handle the needs of a thriving manufacturing business.

The solution is to add additional capabilities to QuickBooks to provide the manufacturing and business management capabilities your business needs without leaving QuickBooks.

How does that work? Acctivate, which is a manufacturing and inventory management software, integrates with QuickBooks.

Frequently referred to as a QuickBooks add-on, Acctivate is a QuickBooks Gold Developer, the highest level of achievement awarded to Intuit’s development partners.

Seeking the tightest integration possible, which provides the best user experience, Acctivate has bi-directional integration with QuickBooks.

Why does bi-directional make the difference?

Without it, much of the information posted in QuickBooks would not automatically update the manufacturing and inventory management software and vice versa.

For example, let’s say you add a customer in QuickBooks. With bi-directional integration, the customer is automatically added in both QuickBooks and Acctivate. Without bi-directional, it isn’t, which can create dual entries and is prone to errors.

Batch / process manufacturing

Batch or process manufacturing, whether recipe or formula, allows for components to be adjusted based on seasonal requirements, availability, or the requirement for substitutions.

On product produced, process manufacturing provides the ability to compensate for the variable yield with the ability to alter the quantity produced.
