Bearwood could no longer sustain an internal legacy or home-grown database solution to run the business. Visibility to real-time business data was an essential requirement to make strategic and tactical business decisions. The goal was to find a cohesive solution starting with estimating that would automatically populate the contracts or projects won to enable:
• production management
• automatic creation of Bills of Material (BOM's)
• material requirements
• inventory management
• labor scheduling and tracking (shop floor and field)
• work order creation
• change management and releasing
Seamless integration with Intuit’s QuickBooks was also a key requirement. Many businesses struggle with getting essential data from manual processes, disparate software programs, and remote employees. The result is often lost data, poor customer service, and management decisions based upon inaccurate or untimely customer, project and financial data. Companies, like Bearwood, see a TRAKware demo, then implement a fully integrated manufacturing solution from Trakware and dramatically improve the effectiveness and profitability of their small business. More than 50% of Trakware’s customers run QuickBooks.
