Our NOW ERP modules. Your accounting essentials.

  • Financial Accounting

In addition to the basic activities of modern financial accounting, the software provides users with customizable user interfaces, automated processes (such as intelligent posting procedures when importing bank data), internationality (such as multi-company businesses, parallel accounting principles, and forex management) and individually extensible standard reports (balance sheet, P & L, business analysis, and cost center reports), which are also available as Excel downloads.

  • Cost Center Accounting

Cost center accounting shows the structure of overhead costs and their allocation to the operational cost objects, ensuring transparency in identifying where costs have arisen. The integrated budgeting is automatically transferred to financial and cost accounting. Various scenarios can be planned using a range of variables. All reports can also be exported as Excel files.

  • Asset Management

The asset accounting module was developed for international application. The software can display parallel inventory management reports in accordance with different accounting principles (HGB, IFRS, etc.) and their imputed valuations. Processing is in real time; thus all values in your asset accounting are consistently and automatically up to date. All reports can be exported to an Excel file at any time.

  • Analytics

The reporting tool produces all relevant financial reports quickly, clearly and in real time, ensuring that you always know how your company is performing. Standard reports (including liquidity analyses, unpaid items, balance sheets, and customer revenues) can be supplemented with individual reports in the customer dashboard. The latest data can also be downloaded to your smartphone or tablet, and exported to an Excel file.

Seamless integration. Stand out with NOW ERP and NOW EVM.

NOW ERP is a new family of software that has been specifically developed for the global textile and clothing industry. Due to its highly specialized yet modular structure, the NOW solution can be adapted and tailored to a vast range of industry requirements. Several modules that meet the needs of the textile and clothing industry are available.

Fully integrated NOW ERP and NOW EVM are fully integrated solutions that share a single database. Hence, the master data and user permissions must only be entered once, and they share a standardized and intuitive user interface. Consequently, all data are available to both the accounts department and other parts of the company in real time, giving the accounts department instant access to completed orders and the sales department full access to customers’ payment history.
