Multi-Warehousing, Production Work Orders, Expanded Reporting, and More Help Manufacturers Manage Operations

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire - November 2, 2009) - Sage North America today announced the general availability of Peachtree by Sage - Quantum Manufacturing Edition. Available from Sage and through its network of Peachtree Certified Consultants nationwide, this new integrated product solution powered by Manufacturing Information Systems, Inc (MISys, Inc.) is designed for manufacturers with up to 250 employees who need easy installation and setup, light customization, and industrial-strength capabilities at an affordable price point.

"The new Peachtree Quantum Manufacturing Edition rounds out Sage's manufacturing portfolio by providing a powerful solution at a very affordable price and low ongoing total cost of ownership, and is designed to help manufacturers address the many varied challenges they face daily to stay ahead of their competition," said Connie Certusi, general manager, small business accounting solutions, Sage North America. "Our manufacturing portfolio strategy that includes Sage MAS ERP, Sage Accpac ERP, and Sage ERP X3, makes Sage an attractive partner for manufacturers because we support them with scalable, affordable solutions throughout the life of their business."

Small to mid-sized manufacturing companies face a host of market challenges; increasing operational and material costs, along with increased competition from larger firms moving down market and pressure from global competitors. Many firms are struggling to maintain profitability with reduced headcount and in the face of inconsistent customer order volume, making it difficult to predict and keep pace with demand.

The new Peachtree Quantum Manufacturing Edition helps small- to mid-sized manufacturers face these and other challenges head on, and is ideal for job shops, custom manufacturers, and make to order and make to stock manufacturers in a variety of industries, such as electronics, medical devices, defense manufacturers, medical/control instruments, transportation, plastics, auto parts, industrial equipment producers, food industries, and process manufacturers. It provides easy to use core accounting and manufacturing functionality to companies that need an out-of-box solution, including inventory control, WIP tracking, multi-level bills of materials, multi-warehousing, work orders, and other key features, at a price small manufacturers can easily afford.

Peachtree Certified Consultants are already experiencing success with the new solution; "What our clients needed was the proverbial champagne solution on a beer budget, and the Peachtree Quantum Manufacturing Edition delivers that," said Dave Smith, Peachtree Certified Consultant and Co-Owner of Phase One Computing Services. "There is no better value in a manufacturing solution -- it's brimming with must-have features our manufacturing clients need now, and as they grow."
