Anytime Supply Chain is Cloud Demand Planning Software for Sage 500 ERP and other ERP systems. Anytime Supply Chain is a cloud supply chain planning software product helping companies with the management of inventory and manufacturing production plans. It was designed from its inception to work with multiple ERP and accounting business applications. Anytime Supply Chain integrates with Intuit QuickBooks and Intacct Financials to bridge this gap between financial software and supply chain management. Other integrations include Epicor ERP, Sage 500 ERP, Sage 300 ERP, Sage 100 ERP and more.
Integration with the backoffice ERP accounting system will vary slightly based on the specific ERP system. For example, Intuit QuickBooks has very limited manufacturing features while Sage 500 ERP has very robust manufacturing features. Anytime Supply Chain Cloud Demand Planning Software supports both systems to manage planned purchase orders but integration back to the ERP system is limited because Anytime Supply Chain software cannot create a work order in QuickBooks which doesn’t support this type of functionality. Rather, the QuickBooks user can use Anytime Supply Chain to tell them what they need to make which can then be recorded into QuickBooks as a finished good. The Sage 500 integration would generate a Work Order in the Sage 500 system.
Data from the ERP system is synchronized from the ERP system into Anytime Supply Chain software for planning. More basic systems don’t have all of the information needed for more advanced planning so the user can maintain additional information within Anytime Supply Chain software.
Some users may choose to utilize Anytime Supply Chain software to suggest what orders they need to create in their backoffice accounting system. In these cases, order reports can be generated and the planner can simply mark that they were manually created in the accounting or ERP system.
Other users may wish to automate the creation of orders in their accounting or ERP system based on the Anytime Supply Chain software suggested orders. Suggested orders can be exported to a file which can then be stored and imported either manually or through a scheduled process into the backoffice ERP system. For example, Sage 100 ERP (MAS 90 and MAS 200) include a module called Visual Integrator which can be used quite effectively to create purchase orders and work orders in the system from the Anytime Supply Chain software application. The same is true for other applications like Sage 500.
