aACE overview

aACE is a comprehensive tool, tailored to the needs of small and mid-sized enterprises, that seamlessly supports sales, operations, and accounting. As the letters in our name suggest, aACE unifies Accounting, Customer relationship management, and Enterprise resource planning into an integrated package. The newly-released aACE 5 is artisan software which our clients describe as a delight to deploy and a pleasure to use. Flexible, affordable, and elegant, this latest version of aACE realizes the team’s vision of Art in ERP.

In addition to accounting, CRM, and ERP, core aACE functionality includes inventory, order management, production, shipping & receiving, and scheduling.

This newest version of aACE is the culmination of over a decade of research and development. We have worked closely with our clients to perfect a business management solution tailored to the needs of SMEs. You can see our customer-centered product evolution in the attention paid to details of UX design, such as navigation, searching, error messages, and logging.

aACE accommodates most client needs right out of the box. And because it is built on the FileMaker platform, aACE can be customized easily, efficiently, and cost effectively. Each SME has unique in-house expertise acquired during their years in business, and aACE makes it simple to translate those insights into custom apps that streamline processes, boost productivity, and maximize their competitive advantage.

Our track record of enthusiastic customers spans a wide range of industries, including professional services, wholesale distribution, and light manufacturing. These organizations have as few as five and as many as 500 personnel. But they all share the same need for an integrated, cost-effective, cross-platform suite of business management software that is robust enough to support their entire operation — and that’s where aACE comes in.

aACE was a Critical Component to the Success of our Company's Future

Review Source: Capterra

I'm the IT administrator for our company. Coming off Quickbooks, we found that QB just wasn't offering us all the flexibility and horsepower we needed from an ERP. It needed to handle all the complexities of our day to day operations, give us the reports we needed, integrate into our existing process - and then fade into the background as everyone became comfortable with it to get the job done. aACE has done all that. It transformed our order fulfillment process during implementation by helping us see trouble spots in our processes. aACE was able to customize a few key components for us very intelligently that now just work. Exactly the way we need them to. Employee adoption was slow to start, like most ERP's, but now even our most technology-adverse employees use aACE as reliably as the notepad beside their mouse. Three years later, we're going strong and preparing to launch new initiatives to promote future growth. That process requires a lot of thought and preparation, but one thing we don't have to worry about is if aACE can handle it. There have been several occasions in our company strategy meetings where the question is asked "Can aACE do that?" and it's a pleasure every time when I get to say, "Yeah that's already built in." The software is intuitive, smart, and reliable. Sometimes I check my aACE server uptime just to see how long it's been since the last restart because we don't have issues with it. It just works for months on end. As a technology professional, I was sensitive to the aesthetics, workflow and usability of the software - all important qualities for it to be a "fade into the background" kind of solution. From first glance to present day, I'm continually impressed by how aACE works the way you expect it to. I've had a chance to demo the aACEv5 environment and on top of it being a welcomed face-lift, the attention to detail in new features and how existing features were improved is uncanny. You can tell the developers have an eye for detail and are not afraid to scrap, redo and improve. I can't wait to launch aACE 5 in our organization!

Reliable system

Review Source: Capterra

We have been using aACE since 2010. The system has proven time and again to be a structurally sound and reliable business information workhorse. Downtime is barely measurable, though we process thousands of transactions a day. Our specific workflows called for a flexible central platform that we could bolt on customized work-area specific tools. Implementing aACE, in the FileMaker environment, has proven to be the right solution to get us just that. The best testament to the system could be that at our 5 year business systems review, we decided to keep the existing aACE system and instead focus new development on our in-house built bolt-on modules. When the core is reliable, it frees us to innovate and develop better customized workflow improvements. We are happy with the aACE product. Users love the clean interface, speed, robust reporting and intuitive navigation. Having been partners with the aACE team for these many years, we have not been without difficulties. In 2010, I would have loved more how-to documentation and manuals, but I see the team has addressed this over the past few years. Our sometimes strange customization and sometimes incorrect requests have been consistently met with professionalism and an attitude of partnership for mutual success by the aACE team. They have been truly valued partners during a significant growth period in our company's history.

Fantastic software, service & customisation

Review Source: Capterra

We have been using aACE since 2009 and are very impressed with the ease of use and customisation options. We were struggling for years with an off the shelf CRM and accounts solution that just didn't suit our business. We then found aACE and spent time with the developers to customise it and make it work exactly how we wanted it. The customisation and the migration of our data were seamless with lots of training offered to all our users. Any changes we required were actioned quickly & the ongoing customer support has been fantastic. We are UK based so there have been a lot of changes with dates & currency formats which aACE have been meticulous about. We manufacture bespoke trophies and 3 years ago we decided to completely integrate our production schedule with a calendar into aAce for our workshop and despatch department to access too. We were previously using a separate calendar, which meant a lot of duplicating data. The development took a little longer than we had planned which meant go live was right in the middle of our busiest event period. We're deliberated if we should wait but decided to go for it and it was the best decision we have made. It has enabled our sales team to spend more time selling rather than copying data and everybody within the company has access to all the information required to complete an order without any issues or miscommunication. It has been wonderful working with aAce and thankyou for understanding our English ways!

Benefits

aACE clients have called our solution “the best in everything,” “a major improvement over QuickBooks,” and “a critical component to the success of our company’s future.” We’re constantly hearing from our clients that their day-to-day operations have improved since implementing aACE. For example:

- "aACE has a comprehensive customer relationship management section that leads into prospective customers becoming real customers. From that point, you can take an order from start to finish by capturing deadlines, resources and material costs spent on a project, as well as extensive accounting functions." - Lili Hall, KNOCK Inc.

- "[aACE] has been able to fully integrate full scale accounting, construction project bidding and fulfillment, point-of-sale order processing, field service via iPad, web store management and fulfillment, and much more into one seamless package." - Alvaro Mendoza, Commercial Energy Specialists

-"The more we use this program, the more we love it! The biggest asset to our company has been the automated workflows, especially in our customer care and shipping departments. We have been able to reduce order entry errors, minimize order approval due to built-in double checks and accuracy of promotions / campaigns, and drastically improve our ship time from order entry to out-the-door. The shipping integration has helped reduce picking errors and assisted in a speedy pick and pack process." - Daniel Chapman, Redd Remedies

- "aACE helped us to bring all of our company functions together into one system. This has helped us with automating reporting and avoiding the need for extra cross-checking among systems." - Lance Caffrey, American Christmas
