About A.M.M.O.

The All-in-One Program for Your Shop and Office

No manufacturer is too small for AMMO. An inexpensive and simple, yet comprehensive manufacturing management system, AMMO organizes both front office & shop operations. Developed by a manufacturer for small manufacturers, AMMO fills the application gap between simple accounting packages and more complicated ERP/MRP systems.

AMMO has eight modules to help you run your business. With one easy-to-use database, you only have to enter data once. AMMO saves you time and money as it quickly gives you the information that you need, when you need it.

AMMO now interfaces to QuickBooks Pro 2002 and 2003. The day-to-day transactions of your business are entered into AMMO (Invoices, Receipts, Bills, and Payments). The AMMO Accounting Interface seamlessly transfers your financial transactions to the General Journal in QuickBooks. At any time you can retrieve financial statements from QuickBooks, while you control the details in AMMO.
