#13. Workflow keeps your processes in order
We’ve blogged a lot about our work with Exact Synergy CRM, and the workflows that we’ve created for customers to improve their businesses from quote follow-up to internal review processes. As mentioned in Reason #4, one of the most compelling reasons to upgrade to Exact Macola 10 is its inclusion of four leading Exact Macola solutions into one powerful system — and Exact Synergy is one of these systems. Exact Synergy’s workflow capabilities are included in Exact Macola 10 to organize the flow of your business’s processes.
#14. Workflow experts — we’ve got them.
No matter how unique or intricate your company’s processes or desired workflows are, Exceptional Software Solutions LLC’s team of professionals is here to guide you every step of the way. With some of the world’s leading Exact Synergy experts on our team, we love to create workflow solutions for your complex problems.
#15. Automation: remembering so that you don’t have to
Wouldn’t it be nice for your ERP system to remind you when to do something, or automatically perform tasks, so that you wouldn’t have to remember yourself? Exact Macola 10 does just that. It’s automation features — thanks to the incorporation of Exact Event Manager — can be configured to automatically take a particular action once triggered or scheduled. For example, in helping one company to shorten its sales cycles and improve quote follow-up processes, Exceptional Software Solutions LLC employed the use of Exact Synergy and Exact Event Manager to send automatic alerts to sales staff to follow up with customers on a predefined schedule.
#16. Do more with Automation
Exact Macola 10's automation capabilities are designed to help free your staff to spend more time on strategic tasks rather than administration. With automation, Exact Macola 10 can: send automatic order confirmations to your customers, check and update inventory status, order materials and more. Curious what automation can do for your unique business? Contact us at email@example.com.
#17. Document management means organization and collaboration
Yet another benefit of the incorporation of the powerful Exact Synergy into Exact Macola 10 is superior document management capabilities. Efficient digital document management means less paper documentation that’s prone to error and misplacement, better collaboration among your employees regardless of their physical location, and organized knowledge in one central location.
#18. Document management helps meet ISO 9000 certification standards
Our team of professionals has helped many customers optimize document management capabilities in numerous ways that are highly beneficial to their businesses. One example is utilizing document management capabilities to help meet ISO 9000 certification standards. Read more about it here.
#19. Document management helps manage knowledge within your organization and a multigenerational workforce
Effective document management doesn’t only mean improved day-to-day operations. It means capturing and exposing your company’s information to the right employees at the right time, and preserving and sharing knowledge between seasoned and new employees. Learn how Exceptional Software Solutions LLC has used document management to improve knowledge share and knowledge transfer here.
#20. Updated technology can be a competitive advantage.
“A company’s unique business processes can now be propagated with much higher fidelity across the organization by embedding it in enterprise information technology. As a result, an innovator with a better way of doing things can scale up with unprecedented speed to dominate an industry.”
— Harvard Business Review, “Investing in the IT That Makes a Competitive Difference”
Studies show that organizations that invest in technology, both in quantity and quality, can gain a competitive advantage over those that don’t — especially when it comes to using technology for process management. Don’t be left behind when it comes to updated, newer, more effective technology for your business.
#21. Updating doesn’t have to mean a higher price.
With the inclusion of four leading Exact Macola applications — Exact Macola ES ERP, Exact Synergy, Exact Event Manager and Exact Macola Navigator — into one powerful system, from a licensing perspective, Exact Macola 10 is less expensive than purchasing all components separately.
#22. ERP that’s strong at its core
