Made2Manage ERP software clients operate in a wide variety of industries including electronics, fabricated metals, furniture and fixtures, industrial and commercial machinery, computer and office equipment, farm machinery and equipment, rubber and plastics and analytical and measuring instruments.

In 2012 Consona Corporation, makers of Made2Manage ERP and CDC software merged to form Aptean. The company has over 1500 employees, and sales and support staff across the world

The Microsoft .NET customization tools make it easier to customize Made2Manage to specific business needs.
