Increasingly, discrete manufacturers are turning to ERP to improve workflows, operations and protocols. Why are these manufacturers choosing this approach? Working with a comprehensive ERP solution, such as Acumatica, helps you manage every facet of your business.

Configure Smart Discrete Manufacturing ERP Workflows

Configuring optimized workflows based on performance data is one of the best ways to enhance production in discrete manufacturing. Acumatica digitizes the process, compiling data for easy analysis and allowing you to set customized notifications.
