To grow your manufacturing or engineering business requires you to have reporting and financial controls that outdated or disconnected IT systems struggle to provide. Aptean Unity ERP software empowers you with modern management reporting tools and control of workflows, plus HR and T&A capabilities, to accurately manage all elements of your performance in and out of your factory.

Enables Your Managers To Make Faster, Cost Saving Decisions

Aid your managers with the real-time alerts, information and visibility to optimise your operations at every level. Includes online and mobile reporting, on tablet or smartphone.

Reveals True Sales, Supply Chain and Factory Performance

Achieve accurate sales analysis that reveals your true profitability, even for complex products or business structures. Accurately monitor your supply chain performance and factory costs, all within one system.

Keeps Your Cash in View at Every Stage in Your Business

Reduce your exposure to credit risks and debts: Aptean Unity ERP gives you integrated visibility and controls that aren’t achievable if using separate accounting, sales and supply chain systems.

Enhance Your Multi-Site, Multi-Company Operations

Optimise how you use resources across multiple sites or easily manage complex company structures: Aptean Unity ERP comes complete with the integrated management tools and ledgers you need.

Effortless Control With Management Information System (MIS) And Workflow Tools

When you rely on multiple data sources to monitor your operations and cashflow, your bottom line is at risk from inaccurate or out-of-date information. Similarly if you manually govern procedures to achieve industry standards, human error is unavoidable. Even double-checks aren’t guarantees and add extra cost and delays. Protect your business with the reporting and task workflow tools of Aptean Unity ERP:

  • Powers instant visibility with Real-Time Data Capture

  • Delivers intuitive, web-based and mobile friendly Management Reporting

Protect Your Security With Access and Audit Control

It’s important that you have control of what information, tasks or locations staff have permission for. Yet too often manual or outdated systems leave you exposed. The security controls of Aptean Unity ERP ensure that staff permissions are tightly defined yet flexible enough to ensure productive working and collaboration.
