Generating consistent estimates and quotes can be a roller coaster ride for make-to-order manufacturers, mainly because each job being quoted has a different set of specifications and requirements. Job Shops struggle with estimating because they don’t start with knowing the actual cost of manufacturing the parts they buy or make, or they don’t record those numbers in a consistent, easily accessible system. Job Shops that invest in enterprise resource planning (ERP) software have greater insight into the information they need to make better decisions and drive more profitability.
Time and time again, we have recommended Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central as the classic activity-based cost and estimating tool to help track and compare estimated costs to actual costs at any point in a job. Using a tool like this can be the engine that drives consistent results and gives Job Shops the accuracy, speed, and confidence they need from the time the job is estimated to the time it is delivered.
So, what does a Job Shop get from investing in the right ERP software?
Contact Innovia if you’re interested in learning how you can get greater control, consistent quoting, better accuracy, and increased productivity and profitability for your business.
