A Different Challenge Every Day

In order to compete in an ever-changing global marketplace many companies can no longer focus on one single stream of revenue or style of manufacturing.  Diversity helps you grow when things are good and protects you from collapse when things are bad.

At IntegrateIT we understand the challenges of project-based manufacturers.  And that is why ERP123 provides a highly-functional ERP platform that gives a project-based manufacturer the right kind of software tools to simplify management of your projects, customer expectations, revenues and costs.  And IntegrateIT has the “know how” to to get the most out of ERP123 at your facility.  See what our customer have to say.

Project-based manufacturing involves managing internal manufacturing activities and meshing them properly with other activities that are being subcontracted.  No matter the degree of internal manufacturing or subcontracting ERP123 has what it takes to co-ordinate all the schedules, trap all the costs, and ensure that revenue milestones are met.

Now that makes more sense !!

Custom or project-based manufacturers who take milestone based payments and expend money on projects often face problems in getting the revenue and cost numbers to be truly reflective of the performance of the business.  Revenue recognition methodology keeps defers revenue to the balance sheet and accrues cost in work in process, then moves both simultaneously to the income statement based on how complete you believe the job to be at the time of reporting.   This will make your monthly statements meaningful.
