Extending, Enhancing and Maintaining Made2Manage

For over 17 years, Progressive Edge has been providing products and services for Made2Manage ERP customers.

Our Apps

Bill of Material Manager

Progressive Edge designed the Bill of Material Manager to relieve your users of the menial tasks which accompany Bill of Material management in your Made2Manage system. Add, edit, import, compare and report, all from a drag & drop interface. Shrink the time it takes to manually perform tasks from hours in the standard system to minutes.  Works with all Made2Manage Bill of Material types (Standard, Quote, Order, and Job).

IIR - Intelligent, Interactive Reports

IIR is a flexible Business Intelligence (BI) tool designed for Aptean’s Made2Manage ERP System.  Cost analysis is a major part of this tool, but it is not limited to just financial people. Project managers can see exactly where projects stand from a material, labor and estimate view to a complete stand point. The procurement departments can see vendor history and analyze vendor performance. Plant management can get labor and workstation efficiency reports to analyze routing effectiveness.

Shipping Point

A better way to manage shipments for Made2Manage users.  Shipping Point was designed to build efficiency into your ERP Shipping process, while maintaining full compatibility with your Made2Manage ERP Software from Aptean.

Lot Control

Check out our Lot Control enhancements for Made2Manage.  Standard functionality is cumbersome and time-consuming.  Our Lot Control enhancement significantly improves user productivity in assigning and picking Lot and Serial Numbers in Made2Manage.

Labor Reporting

Labor Reporting in Made2Manage certainly has its options, yet they all still have the same bottle-neck: BC Posting.  We have a real-time direct application for Labor Entry and it doesn’t use the Posting program.  Find out what that means to you.

Our Services

You have questions, We have answers.

Progressive Edge provides a range of professional services suitable for all types of Made2Manage users.

With over 25 years of Manufacturing experience (15 plus years with Made2Manage), we can provide qualified and effective consulting services for your business.  We have consultants who are experienced in all areas of Made2Manage:  Financials, Customer Service, Production Control, Job Costing, and Planning and Scheduling.  Let us help you use the system as it was designed.


Looking to get the most out of your Made2Manage system?  Sometimes that means changing a report, adding a new field, or streamlining multiple tasks into one simpler process.  We have a proven track record in making changes which compliment the standard system, yet provide the fast and efficient information you’re looking for.  Small or large, we can make Made2Mange work for you.

Technical Services

Knowing how the hardware, databases, network,  and operating systems fit together with Made2Manage is critical.  We can provide skilled technicians who know Made2Manage.  If you’re currently having difficulties, or you just want to have a review of your ERP backbone, we can provide the expertise.
