Cloud Manufacturing and Warehouse Management Software Success Story

Cloud Manufacturing and Warehouse Management Software: An Enlightening Success Story

We are proud to share a success story of how Acumatica and Scanco helped a lighting manufacturer improve its internal processes and scale rapidly with the integrated solutions of Acumatica, Scanco, and JAAS Systems.

ABOUT CUSTOMER: Based in Rancho Cucamonga, CA, FSC Lighting Inc. is a lighting manufacturer that started as a fluorescent lighting manufacturer and later expanded into LED lighting to offer controls, automation, and energy efficiency.  They offer a variety of lighting solutions for commercial, industrial and public sector projects. This 30-person manufacturing operation serves the local and surrounding community and is proud to employ 10 adults with developmental disabilities and up to 200 offsite from the Pomona Valley Workshop. For decades, the company ran on tribal knowledge and Sage DacEasy, which was never really set up properly. There was a tipping point in the company's growth where it was time to replace the outdated system and invest in new technology. The old system lacked accountability, traceability and couldn’t scale as the company grew. FSC Lighting chose Acumatica for its flexible, scalable, cloud-based ERP and excellent value. They also implemented Scanco and JAAS Systems for a fully integrated solution to scale with them as they continue to grow.

5 Ways Trade Promotion Management Helps Our Sage 100 and Sage X3 Customers

Why Do Sage 100 and Sage X3 Customers Need Trade Promotion Management Integration?

As Sage 100 and Sage X3 consultants, we help our clients with many process and tools that will help them run their business more effectively and profitably. Throughout the years, our team at Southeast Computer Solutions has worked with clients to implement and integrate Trade Promotion Management tools. So what is trade Promotion Management (TPM) and why did we develop an integration for our Sage 100 and Sage X3? TPM is a set of processes and tools that allow a company to manage trade promotions. A trade promotion is a marketing campaign directed at wholesalers and retailers instead of to the end users, consumer and customer of a product or service. For example, a wholesaler/retailer may receive a special price or discount for a product or product group for a specific period in addition to allowances they may have already negotiated. In order to effectively track the ROI and profitability of such campaigns, it's necessary to have an ERP system like Sage 100 or Sage X3 integration.

10 Ways to Simplify Your Business Life with Connected Software Systems

Remember when life was simpler? You may have started out in business with a sharp pencil and a boatload of ideas. Realistically, let’s say you started out with basic software systems and added to them as your company grew and needs changed. Now you find yourself the proud owner of several software systems, each designed for a specific need. But do they play well together? Do they make your life simpler or more frustrating? The latter can easily happen if your various software systems are disconnected.

We find that many of our clients use multiple systems: one for invoicing, one for projects, another for shipping and still another for CRM. Is this true for your business too?

Ideally, all of your systems are integrated and data passes easily from one to another. If that is not the case you may be finding that you have silos of information in one system that then need to be entered manually into another system in order for you to get the benefit of your data. That manual and duplicated data entry is sure to involve more time and resources and make your business life more complicated. That’s just one of the drawbacks to having disconnected software systems.
