The Best of Both Worlds
Next Gear Solutions is the provider of the leading platform for property restoration. Among this platform of restoration-specific software solutions, Next Gear offers DASH, a web-based restoration management software system that allows restoration contractors to streamline their job management, equipment, work order requests, calendar, reporting, business accounting, and job estimating into one integrated portal to maximize efficiency across their organization.
Prior to Acumatica, the construction and restoration industries lacked a true multi-tenant/cloud ERP solution. Since Acumatica launched their Construction Edition in March of 2019, they’ve grown to more than 200 customers within those industries. They’ve done so because many companies in the construction and restoration industries have come to realize that QuickBooks lacks many of the accounting features they need. Many others have realized that they need a modern ERP solution that can handle today’s and tomorrow’s challenges, and they see that Sage 100 and Sage 300 fall short meeting those challenges.
Think of the amount of data and the number of transactions that your business generates from your day-to-day operations. In our experience, many companies have to employ cumbersome processes just to ensure that the correct data exists in the appropriate software systems. Often, those processes include double and triple checking financial data to help mitigate human error. With PixisSync, that is all a thing of the past.
Pixis Software has created an integration that links the Next Gear platform and Acumatica ERP Construction Edition via our PixisSync application. These systems are dedicated to providing maximum visibility into your business’ operations and financials. Having that information at your fingertips is crucial to profitability and growth. The PixisSync integration application can help decrease the time and eliminate the errors associated with duplicate entry. This means you and your team can leave the tedious work to PixisSync and you can focus on keeping your business running.
