Earlier this month, we officially launched our cloud-based solution for small business manufacturers and wholesale distributors in the U.S., including Exact Online Manufacturing and Exact Online Wholesale Distribution. Essentially, the software enables small business manufacturers and wholesalers to operate more efficiently and profitably by giving them the ability to manage their business via one solution. The cloud-based software streamlines tasks such as production and inventory management, logistics and CRM. Even better, it integrates seamlessly with QuickBooks Online and QuickBooks Desktop, bridging the gap between common manufacturing and wholesale distribution tasks and traditional accounting functions.
For the past few months, we’ve had a controlled release of our software available, and our customers have raved about the functionality, particularly the ability to integrate with QuickBooks, get real-time updates of their business operations, manage their business from anywhere, quote faster and better manage their customer relationships . Now, our cloud-based software is available to all small business manufacturers and wholesale distributors in the U.S. who can download it on our website and in the Intuit App Center.
Dillaman Mold and Manufacturing is one of our customers that has been using Exact Online to manage business workflow, from entering jobs to manufacturing, invoicing and shipping products. Owner Chad Dillaman wears a lot of hats, but he also wants to get home early to spend time with his children. We’ve made that possible: Chad saves time with our QuickBooks integration, eliminating double entries. Matching purchase order numbers with job numbers is much faster than using a spreadsheet, and he can easily access labor hours for quoting purposes and for estimating workload. And because the software is accessible via any web browser, Chad can work from home if needed.
We’re excited to bring these capabilities to even more small business manufacturers and wholesale distributors across the U.S. and help their operations run like well-oiled machines. With the U.S. manufacturing sector slated for steady growth, now is the time to seize upon technology that can streamline workflow and integrate disparate systems. This 360-degree view of operations is critical to stay on top of quotes, shop orders, inventory and customer relationships.
Even better, our software is designed precisely for small manufacturers and wholesale distributors. It’s easy to use, intuitive, and can scale with the business demands. It provides to-do lists and job status updates that keep our customers on schedule. It’s the tool that pulls everything together, giving our customers better insight into their businesses, more efficiency, and a better bottom line.
