Monitor sales margin by branches (5 branches).
Manage price lists for different types of clients.
Purchasing department control with approvals.

Reduce manual work and chances of human errors by the introduction of automated systems in the workplace.
Providing the customers transparency by letting them track their orders and requests.
Every department was on its own. The inventory, the accounting section - none of them functioned according to the company's standard. None of them ran smoothly and seamlessly. That was mainly because there was no connection between them.
For example, if a customer requests a particular product, the order is taken to the purchasing department through material requisition document or a customer order document. This department checks for its availability and places a purchase order or gets it transferred from any store depending on availability. Once the purchase order or transfer is created and the material is made available, the customer receives the material. Then, the sales department creates the tax invoice. And this is how easy it has become for a company.
But after implementation, the company has been able to implement the following improvements:
The company has more control over its business because all its branch operations are consolidated in one system.
The management can get reports anytime and anywhere, allowing it to respond to business needs promptly.
Organizing a hierarchical system for the employees. This has proved to be very productive for the company.
Regular and accurate reports have helped the company to understand and at times predict the market. This has enabled it to streamline the flow towards achieving their goals faster.
Estimate costs and layout plans for the services and products.
Ensure regular availability of materials for the customers.
There has been a considerable boost in efficiency in the sales department.
