Choosing an off-the-shelf software as a productive tool in business has immense limitations. For sure, as a company expands its need for better data support, and data transparency, can grow exponentially.
Worse still, when information, documents and files are residing on multiple PCs, productivity can nosedive: too much time is spent searching too many unrelated files for inaccurate or incomplete data.
Workers in the field, who may be relying on real-time data to make project decisions, know just how ineffective the flow of information can be if they are unable to access urgent information themselves; this, to reduce the possibilities of downtime.
Sage 300 ERP integrates the data from every segment of the business, making it available in real time. Financials? Not only is the software ideal for generating financial reports, but it provides that critical data needed for any sales and service part of the organization.
What’s more, in this age of Big Data, the platform is capable of pulling in data to help ID ongoing issues as well as conduct meaningful analysis on demand.
Customers are better served when sales and service can manage their orders and requests seamlessly. Questions can be answered and areas of crossover sales can be identified without delaying the process by relying on numerous software platforms that are not in anyway connected to a single database.
When ordering parts or supplies, old methods like retrieving purchasing history from Outlook email files, or opening an Excel spreadsheet, can only lead to inaccurate tracking and lost orders.
With Sage, key decision makers, whether they be in the field, on the road in sitting in a client’s office, can draw on real-time budget and expense reports to gauge the success of ongoing projects—without stopping the workflow to wait for the information to get back to them from the home office!
