Algorithm, the Macola Advantage

Macola was founded in 1982 as a solution to automate manufacturing and distribution processes.  The name Macola was an abbreviation for Manufacturing Computer Lab. Macola ERP quickly became recognized as a “best of breed” software and was embraced by many thousands of small to medium sized manufacturing and distribution business throughout North America.

A successful ERP software implementation requires more than just a great software technology, it requires a special breed of consultant who can bridge the gap between the technology and the employees who are responsible for carrying out business processes. Various local entrepreneurs, many of whom worked at CPA firms, saw the opportunity in signing up as Macola resellers.  These entrepreneurs were innovative, flexible, and nimble and had an intimate and local knowledge of their customers businesses. Certainly one of the main reasons that Macola grew to be the dominant American SMB manufacturing software technology was its sole reliance on Value Added Resellers (VARS), to sell and implement its products.  This VAR model, along with the “best of breed” Macola software, created an enormous boom in productivity at small and medium sized manufacturing and distribution companies across America.  In most cases, keeping them safe from low cost and high volume competition from China and elsewhere.
