A Deeper Dive
Connected Commerce, Inventory, Manufacturing, and Financials are essential to maximizing Supply Chain Management, improving Costs Control, and simplifying Regulatory Compliance.
1: Solving Manufacturing
One of the key benefits of Acumatica is its support for both discrete and process manufacturing, as well as its quality control module, which enables businesses to manage their entire manufacturing process within a single platform.
Discrete manufacturing refers to the production of distinct, individual items such as machinery, electronics, or furniture. In contrast, process manufacturing refers to the production of goods in bulk quantities, such as food, beverages, or chemicals. Acumatica provides support for both types of manufacturing, allowing businesses to manage their production processes in a way that is tailored to their specific needs.
Acumatica's quality control module allows businesses to track product quality at every stage of production, from raw materials to finished goods, and provides tools for managing quality inspections, testing, and certifications.
2: Solving Commerce
The integration of Acumatica with BigCommerce means that businesses can leverage the benefits of both platforms to create an end-to-end commerce solution. With this integration, businesses can manage their entire e-commerce operations, from order management and inventory tracking to financial management and customer service, all from a single platform. This makes it easier for businesses to streamline their operations and reduce the time and resources needed to manage their e-commerce operations.
3: Solving Inventory
With Acumatica, businesses can track inventory levels in real-time, manage multiple warehouses, and set up automated reordering to ensure they always have the right amount of stock on hand. Additionally, Acumatica provides tools for managing warehouse operations, such as receiving and putaway, picking and packing, and shipping and delivery.
One of the key benefits of Acumatica's warehouse and fulfillment capabilities is that businesses can track inventory levels across multiple locations, which is particularly important for businesses with complex supply chains. This allows businesses to optimize their inventory levels and reduce the risk of stockouts or overstocking.
Acumatica also provides businesses with tools for managing fulfillment operations, such as order processing, order tracking, and shipping label generation. With these capabilities, businesses can manage their entire fulfillment process, from order receipt to final delivery, all within the same platform.
4: Solving Financials
Cloud ERP systems can help manufacturers streamline financial processes such as billing, invoicing, and accounts payable, as well as provide real-time financial data to support strategic decision-making.
In a competitive industry, managing costs is critical to maintaining profitability and staying ahead of the competition. However, identifying cost-saving opportunities and optimizing production processes can be challenging without the right tools and data. Cloud-based ERP solutions can provide real-time insights into production costs, inventory levels, and other key metrics, enabling you to make data-driven decisions that reduce costs and increase efficiency.
The benefits of “headless” commerce

Headless commerce enables manufacturing companies to sell their products across multiple channels, including online marketplaces, social media platforms, and mobile apps.
Product to Market
Headless commerce can help manufacturers launch new products more quickly by enabling them to build and deploy new e-commerce experiences faster and more efficiently.
Headless commerce enables manufacturers to provide better customer service by integrating customer data across all channels and providing real-time support.
