Share Article

High performance data link extends QuickBooks functionality and transforms it into an ultimate and complete business solution to maximize profitability, productivity and communication through innovative technology.

Trakware Systems, a leading provider of manufacturing execution and enterprise planning (MES/ERP/MRP) solutions for small to midsize project/contract/ETO companies, announced their new and innovative capabilities for Intuit QuickBooks. Key benefits delivered to QuickBooks users: Estimators who use TRAKware estimating can expect double digit win rates, and higher profitability than jobs that were estimated outside of TRAKware. Additionally, these same jobs are automatically enabled for end to end manufacturing coverage through TRAKware Data Collection and Production Management.

“QuickBooks is the most commonly used small-business accounting and financial management software in North America”, states Randy Richel, CEO of Trakware, “so it is no surprise that over half of our customers run it. There is a huge misperception about the size limit of a QuickBooks run business. We have customers with just a handful of people, up to the QuickBooks-based, TRAKware-solution-based firms approaching $100M in revenues, with multiple sites. We are also a QuickBooks customer.”

Engineer-to-Order manufacturing, fabricators or construction companies have very unique challenges:

  • Complex Estimating and Quoting;
  • Job Costing and Accounting (and perhaps only spreadsheets or accounting software);
  • Multi-Project Manufacturing with projects of varying sizes;
  • Uniquely configured / one-of-a kind products built to exact customer specifications;
  • Multiple and frequent Change Orders impacting all Work Orders.

The Quickbooks – TRAKware business solution handles these challenges and delivers measurable value with:

  • More efficient and fewer, shop floor personnel (greatest reduction in cost);
  • Lower material costs;
  • Higher revenues and higher profit margins;
  • More customers and more orders delivered on time and per spec;
  • Real time job costing;
  • Mobile data collection and communication;
  • 16 years of experience and expertise with project/contract/agile based businesses.

We would welcome the opportunity to learn about your challenges and then demonstrate our commitment to successfully improve your QuickBooks based company. Please take a moment to provide your contact information at http://www.trakware.com and we will contact you shortly.
