From cost estimates to shop floor data capture, barcode scanning to MRPII – Access SupplyChain provides excellent functionality for all aspects of your manufacturing operations. This fully traceable, multi-level solution enables you to handle all forms of processing with equal efficiency, including make-to-order, make-to-stock, one-off and semi-continuous.
See at a glance which orders are awaiting components and decide whether to re-allocate from other jobs. Instantly create back-to-back order where you have shortages, subject to full purchase order authorisation. Every order is assigned a priority to ensure your best customers are satisfied first and rush job deadlines are met.
This is essential functionality for any company that sells, assembles or manufacturer’s products that have options and variances. See at-a-glance which options are available, and configure your product in real-time.
Build up detailed and accurate estimates for new products and also allows you to track enquiries for standard items. By calculating the costs, selling prices and margins, you can be sure that the customer gets what they are looking for while your margins remain protected.
Manage sub-contract operations and supply, strengthen your partnerships and control your costs. From single elements to entire jobs you can track free-issue materials to sub-contractors and match them against finished goods returned. A matrix of suppliers, prices and products prompts the best choice of sub-contractors, while clear instructions help to optimise sub-contractor performance and minimise any disruption to your own production.
Linked seamlessly to your stock records Access brings in raw material, labour and packaging costs to calculate an accurate batch costing dependent on exactly what was used. Any cost attributed to the batch can be recorded accurately and even account for the costs associated with multiple quality control test profiles.
"We chose Access SupplyChain because of the level of service they provide and the fact we were getting 'the best of both' in terms of finance and manufacturing functionality. So many of the solutions we explored seemed to excel in one but lack in the other" Jane Greenaway, Business Systems Manager, King of Shaves
