Your business needs are covered with these manufacturing applications, which are fully integrated with our ERP and accounting solutions:

Bill of Materials / Kitting for Manufacturing

Save time and reduce errors with TRAVERSE Bill of Materials/Kitting, a fully integrated application that allows wholesale distributors, retail distributors, and light manufacturers to define, build and sell assemblies or kitted inventory items. Set up assemblies and kits using unique inventory numbers, an unlimited number of components, and globally replaceable items.

Bill of Materials / Kitting allows you to:

  • Change components for a group of select items with the global replacement of items.
  • Build fully costed, finished goods by including component costs as well as labor costs.
  • Maintain accurate inventory quantities for your assemblies or raw materials.
  • Build non-serialized assemblies that contain either serialized or non-serialized materials and components.

Routing and Resources for Manufacturing

TRAVERSE Routing and Resources defines elements such as work centers, labor, machinery, and tooling. Take control with the flexible overhead calculation, user-definable shop calendars, flexible costing algorithms, and multiple subcontractor vendor tracking capabilities.

With Routing and Resources for Manufacturing, you’ll be able to:

  • Interface with General Ledger and account definition for costing purposes.
  • Define operations as a combination of labor types, machine groups, and tooling.
  • Create routings as a set of step-by-step operations, and use them in the Bill of Materials application without needing to recreate them every time.

Manufacturing - Production

Keep track of the production status for the past, present, and future with the TRAVERSE Manufacturing - Production application. Easily handle lot-tracked and serialized inventory, multiple releases per production order, and priority-based dispatching.

Using Manufacturing – Production will allow you to:

  • Create and edit production orders using a visual editor with drilldown.

  • Use powerful reporting capabilities to see when, where, and why variances took place in terms of time, usage quantities, and final production.
  • Easily handle lotted and serialized inventory, and perform multiple releases per production order.
  • Import activity recording from an external sources, such as automated time card or bar code data collection system.

Requirements Planning

Manage sales forecasts, create master schedules, and balance future supply and demand with TRAVERSE Requirements Planning. Optionally use automated generation of production orders, bucketless or user-defined buckets, flexible time fences, and component pegging.

With TRAVERSE Requirements Planning, you can:

  • Manage contract or long-term delivery orders with blanket order functionality for your customers.
  • Choose between bucketless and standard Requirements Planning reports based on daily, weekly, monthly, or user-defined summaries.
  • Tailor your interface and create unlimited user-defined fields using the TRAVERSE Design Studio.
  • Create forecasts for individual items, parts, and assemblies based on current history using multiple methodologies.


Know instantly what you have in stock, how much it is worth, and where it is located with the TRAVERSE Inventory application. Take advantage of multiple-warehouse capabilities, predefined inventory reports, lot tracking, and quantity breaks.

With Inventory keeping tabs on the stock, you can:

  • Identify your best products and understand purchase and sales cycles.
  • Set up as many locations as needed for each inventory item; all detail is maintained for each, including quantities and valuation, costs and prices.
  • Monitor inventory movements by tracking inventory history.
  • Create and maintain lot and serial numbers for those item types; lot number details include an expiration date and serial numbers include detail purchase and sales information.

Sales Order

Keep your customers happy by handling orders promptly and correctly with TRAVERSE Sales Order. Easily produce quotes, fulfill orders, generate return merchandise authorizations, and create blanket orders.

With Sales Order, you are able to:

  • Process RMAs (Return Material Authorizations) so that a credit memo is not issued until the customer returns the items to your warehouse.
  • Easily create new orders and copy from existing orders in history; simply view the different transactions posted to history, select one that matches current order information, and create a new order from it.
  • Send invoices, statements, order acknowledgements, and quotes in the format the customer prefers (email, paper, or fax).
  • Use prices that are calculated based on customer level, order quantity, special promotions, or customer-specific prices for items. Item prices can be calculated based on markups from cost or markdowns from average, list, base or calculated prices.

Purchase Order

TRAVERSE Purchase Order gives you the power to take complete control of purchases from invoicing to requisition. Change existing purchase orders, return goods to vendors, generate automatic requisitions, and perform landed cost calculations.

With Purchase Order helping you manage your buying power, you will:

  • Enter purchases in the company base currency or the vendor’s foreign currency; foreign currency purchases track costs in the foreign currency as well as the company base currency.
  • View variances between order and actual quantities, order and actual costs, and delivery dates.

  • Send purchase orders in the format the vendor prefers (email, paper, or fax).

  • Improve efficiency in picking, packing and shipping orders by streamlining daily activities and maximizing the productivity of your warehouse staff.
  • Drill through to view several layers of item detail at one time.

TRAVERSE Mobile Warehouse provides Warehouse Management functionality on a Pocket PC-compatible handheld device. Use it on your warehouse floor to record receipts and shipments, track inventory movement, and automatically enter that information into your TRAVERSE system for other departments to use.

Mobile Warehouse enables your staff to:

  • Make sound decisions about purchases, sales, and transfers with instant on-hand and in-use quantity information.
