Modern ERP in a pandemic. How Acumatica Cloud and Exact Synergy can help SMBs get through this crisis.

As many U.S. households hunker down to slow the spread of the novel Coronavirus, retailers and food establishments have screeched to a halt.

The Top 3 SMB Manufacturing Trends You MUST Be Aware Of

If you know where the industry is headed, you put yourself in a better position to get there before anyone else.

Thanks to the break-neck pace at which technology has continued to advance, the top trends in manufacturing are no longer ones that only the largest businesses can afford to embrace. In the past, concepts like smart manufacturing and zero touch automation required tremendous capital investment to take advantage of... but, thankfully, those days are over.

The nine of nineteen: A roundup of the best ERP blogs, resources, and research from 2019

Start 2020 strong by looking back at the best ERP blog posts of 2019.

Much has been written about ERP tools over the course of the last year – so much so that you may feel like the sheer volume of information that you have to wade through is more than a little overwhelming. It seems like these days in particular, everyone has an opinion – how do you cut through all the noise and find the ones that are actually worth listening to?

Don't worry. We took care of that.

What follows is a list of what we consider to be some of the very best articles of the year devoted to a topic near and dear to our hearts: ERP technology. Some involve success stories that prove just what this type of investment can do in the right circumstances. Others outline major setbacks that we can all stand to learn from. Still others paint a very vivid picture of how far we've come and what 2020 might have in store for us all.

With Prophix, Reporting is More Than Easy. It’s Effortless.

Excel is great for many things… but proactively reporting on financial data is not one of them.

Making sense of this massive amount of data has always been a challenge, which is why Corporate Performance Management Tools – also referred to as CPMs – were developed to pick up the slack. These tools put advanced modeling and planning capabilities in the palm of your hand, allowing you to learn from your data to make better and more informed decisions every day.

But of course, you already knew that.

As is true with so many other critical business apps, the key isn’t buying into CPM as a concept – it’s in finding the right CPM tool that supports everything you’ve worked so hard to build. Gone are the days where software is a “Swiss Army knife” that tries to appeal to anyone and everyone. These days, specific applications are targeting niche audiences and you need to find the specific subset that you’re a part of. You need something that won't force you into a "one size fits all" box and will instead play to the strengths that make you unique.

The chances are high that one of those tools is Prophix, a CPM that offers the scalability you’d expect and the versatility you deserve.
