Celebrate Manufacturing Day with Acumatica Manufacturing Edition
How Acumatica Manufacturing Edition Makes Work Easier for Busy Manufacturers
In celebration of manufacturers in a range of industries including electronic manufacturing, fabrication and metalworking, industrial manufacturing, chemical manufacturing, and more — everything from concrete to surfboards to beer and beyond — we salute you.
No matter your production environment, whether you run an MTO shop, MTS, or ETO – whether you engage in repetitive manufacturing, focus on batch processing, or create custom orders in your job shop, we’d like to honor you with the gift of time this Manufacturing Day.
The Gift of Time? Really?
Okay, we admit that was a flowery beginning, but honestly, manufacturers these days have to work really hard. You deserve some extra recognition this Manufacturing Day, and you deserve a night out on the town. Your job is stressful. And important.
- The ISM’s Manufacturing Index rose to a 14-year high of 61.3 in August 2018, up from 58.1 in July, and 16 of 18 manufacturing industries saw growth in August. (Source: “August 2018 Manufacturing ISM Report on Business,” Institute for Supply Management [ISM])
- “Manufacturing is the largest multiplier of any economic sector: each dollar’s worth of manufactured goods generates $1.40 in output from other sectors of the economy.” (Source: “Where U.S. Manufacturing Is Thriving in 2018,” Joel Kotkin, C. Hobbs Professor of Urban Studies at Chapman University in California)
- Manufacturers hired 37,000 new employees in July, bringing the past year’s hiring total to a grand 327,000. That’s the best 12-month stretch in 23 years. (Source: “Manufacturing Jobs Growing at Fastest Rate in 23 Years,” Market Watch)
With those kinds of numbers, you deserve some time off and you also deserve a bonus. You’re doing impressive work!
But we understand; if you were the kind of person who took lengthy vacations and set up a golden parachute, you probably wouldn’t have achieved the kind of success you’ve already achieved. You would have been focused on other things, instead of your manufacturing business. There’s only so much time and focus available in the day.
Therefore, instead of taking time off or giving yourself a bonus, you prefer to streamline your business tasks, so you can grow your company and ensure greater profitability in the future. Maybe you can also work a little less, while you’re at it.
Think it’s impossible to achieve more and work fewer total hours? C’mon. With your personal drive combined with the strength of Acumatica Manufacturing Edition, nothing is impossible.
