Don’t Get Short Changed Communication between your sales and accounts department has never been easier MaxERP’s account monitoring tool allows your accounts department to easily track which orders have been placed by your customers and sales team, and the outstanding amount on each order.

CAD to Factory Use third party design tools to automatically generate quotes Want to design in CAD and automatically send to MaxERP? With MaxERP’s flexible import functions you can easily link it to most CAD systems. MaxERP’s easy integration with 20-20 Fusion, makes it a great candidate to use as your CAD design tool.

No More Handwritten Orders Accurate job cards and reports provide all the information your factory needs Produce detailed quotations, invoices, barcode labels, job cards, optimisation diagrams, hardware lists, inventory lists, fitting reports and sales orders instantly and accurately. No more handwritten orders that lead to manufacturing errors! With MaxERP’s extensive range of accurate electronic and printed reports, your factory will produce the intended result.

Never Lose a Part Unique labeling and barcode tacking allows you to identify component parts Avoid costly mistakes by using MaxERP’s unique barcoding system. With MaxERP, every order, part and material is unique – you can barcode and track each item as it goes through the factory, highlighting orders that are delayed or falling behind schedule. The option to label each part with the information related to just that item, eliminates the risk of items being manufactured, or delivered incorrectly.

Waste Not, Want Not Industry leading sheet cut optimiser ensures every inch of material is used Need a higher yield or faster production? MaxERP’s built in material optimser allows you to set optimisation levels per material, and includes these in your material costs. Based on the industry leading optimisation technology used in MaxCut, MaxERP takes this functionality to a new level by allowing you to group several jobs together and print a grouped optimisation diagram.

Each job or quote processed through the system has a detailed audit trail. Resolving queries on orders processed months, or even years ago, is as easy as checking up on orders placed yesterday.

MaxERP’s online module allows you to log in from anywhere in the world. Because MaxERP uses a centralised database, there are no synching problems, and actions take immediate effect.
