TEC helps private- and public-sector organizations choose the best enterprise software solutions for their unique business needs quickly, impartially, and cost-effectively. TEC Certification verifies that Made2Manage supports industry-specific standard business processes chosen by TEC analysts, and that TEC analysts have reviewed Aptean RFI data against known benchmarks.
Made2Manage is a directly delivered ERP software, services, and support solution for small and medium-sized discrete manufacturers with dynamic, to-order environments, including engineer-to-order (ETO), make-to-order (MTO), assemble-to-order (ATO), and mixed-mode operations. Made2Manage seamlessly integrates enterprise resource planning and scheduling with shop floor execution.
The capabilities of Made2Manage were confirmed during TEC certification sessions and the solution was certified in TEC's ERP manufacturing model. The study noted a number of pain points addressed by Made2Manage, including:
• Difficulty in analyzing margins and preparing quick and accurate quotes;
• Poor communication between sales, engineering and the shop floor often leading to unhappy customers;
• Difficulty in shifting around production jobs effectively creating bottlenecks and unnecessary down time for machines and staff;
• Inventory shortages leading to production delays.
"Made2Manage is a complete ERP solution with competitive capabilities across all the core modules within the TEC model of discrete manufacturing ERP solutions," stated TEC Senior Research Analyst Ted Rohm, . "It is highly competitive within this software space, scoring higher than the industry average in the manufacturing management, inventory management, purchasing management, quality management, and sales management functional areas.” The solution is deemed “a perfect fit” for job shops/fabricators, capital equipment manufacturers, and electrical equipment manufacturers.
