FROM QUOTE TO CASH

With the M2M ERP software module, whether you are a make-to-order, make-to-stock, engineer-to-order, assemble-to-order, or mixed-mode manufacturer, you can gain real-time visibility over all of your back-office functions.
With the Made2Manage ERP (M2M ERP) application, managing customer orders has never been easier. Whether you need to quickly generate an accurate quote, create a sales order, custom-configure products at the point of sale, or assign special pricing arrangements, you can provide responsive service to your customers. Plus, the embedded Capable-to-Promise functionality within the M2M ERP sales order screen can help you calculate accurate delivery dates for your customers based on capacity and material constraints—helping you more reliably meet your customers' expectations.
