Our Sage History Lots of custom menus with reporting via odbc and/or standard sage reports through Monarch... Monthly report pack grew and grew – Not being read – Taking longer and longer to produce – Always based on historic information – could only ever include what was held in sage – Looked at Crystal and other BI products, put off by long time to implement, licensing/training issues and separate system login... And of course cost!
The Beginnings Starting point (probably 18 months ago) – ASP knowledge from product selection tool – Overview knowledge of what matters in the business Initial reports – How have we done today/this week – What does product x cost to a customer in channel y – Who’s getting behind in payments, how much do they owe us, can they have a statement/copy invoices Live links into sage tables... interactive screens via a web browser
Now All product ordering inc setting reorder levels on components Customer and product performance reporting Key suppliers have remote access to selected screens so they can supply and update delivery dates Prices and quotes for customers – available to all Moving into recording more and more interactions with our customers Triggers and daily reports Example screens..... Demo data.
