    Accounting Package for manufacturer

    I am looking for an accounting package for a small manufacturing concern. Must have stock control and preferably ability to incorporate scanned items (although this can be added in by IT dept)

    The business should use Pastel Evolution, but cost and training is still an issue. Any recommendations?

    Would that include inventory management and BOM? In this case the BOM may include some of the same materials for different final products.

    How does this package compare to Palladium Enterprise or Accpick?

    Yes - I have attached a PDF brochure of the module.

    That's no problem.

    I'm not familiar with those systems so I can't comment unfortunately.

    Another one to look at is Omni accounts. Has a manufacturing option and recipes (BOM). Simply buy the features that you require.

    Hi,

    Are you sick of using an accounting package which is just too complicated and difficult to use?

    The best accounting package manufacturing firm which i suggest is Xterweb. It is an integrated business accounting software firm for Micro, Small and Medium businesses.

    What do you mean by "service provider"?

    If you mean a Pastel dealer/consultant, then that's me.

    I think you might mean Accpac which was bought out by Sage (Pastel) several years ago. I still use the original Simply Accounting package for our manufacturing and it's always worked well for me, it can generate bill of materials and manage inventory etc. Simply was a progression of the original Accpac package and has since been superceded by Sage300 ERP as far as I know.

    A problem we are experiencing is that Pastel will only pull items from stock, to create a BOM once you invoice. We need to transfer components from stock to WIP before invoicing, so that we are on top of what we have in stock as components, WIP and finished product, before invoicing. Is there a program that can do this for us, or should we write our own stock management program to arrive at a final product before invoicing?
