Introduction To BatchMaster Manufacturing Solutions

Introduction

Challenge: 

Running our add-on manufacturing app, BatchMaster Manufacturing, with either QuickBooks or Sage 100/300, requires users to have a login credentials to both applications. Running these 2 integrated software applications can poise some challenges for some users in terms of data visibility and reporting across manufacturing and financials.
Solution: 
BatchMaster Web ERP, aka BME Web, combines BatchMaster Manufacturing with BatchMaster’s own Finance modules, thus replacing the need for QuickBooks or Sage 100/300. A single user login to our unified ERP solution can manage and report on all aspects of your business.
As a natively web-built application, BME Web runs just with the URL, a web browser, internet-enabled device, and login credentials, offering you remote access to your business — from anywhere, anytime.
