Industrial equipment manufacturers struggle with complex engineering requirements and a need to tightly track and control capital expenditures. In addition, their customers expect near perfection in the area of quality and performance while also expecting low costs.
To effectively address these challenges, industrial manufacturers require software that is flexible and scalable. The right ERP solution must simultaneously manage multiple customer requirements while meeting delivery deadlines, complex engineering and design requirements and strict quality standards. The ideal manufacturing solution must also include product engineering and product life cycle management, forecasting and budgeting, inventory management, quality control and robust cost management.

From rapidly developing quotes and estimates, converting quotes into orders, managing product specifications and configurations, to fulfilling field service, spare parts and equipment maintenance requests, MAX handles it all.
