Solarsoft’s ready-to-run Dashboards provide a sharper picture of business performance, from sales and purchasing to dispatch and finance
Solarsoft Business Systems, the UK’s market leader in specialist Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems for SME manufacturers, wholesalers and distributors, today announces new Dashboard technology that brings more clarity and precision to management decision-making. The latest release, Solarsoft Dashboards 3.0, cuts through the clutter of traditional reporting systems to give owners and managers a clear presentation of the key facts and trends underpinning their business performance.
Steven Hargreaves, Product Director at Solarsoft, says, "Getting reliable and up-to-date information about what is happening within your business can be complicated. Most business owners know what their top selling products are, but they don’t necessarily know which customers are buying those products. Our Dashboard technology has been designed to give business owners and managers instant access to key performance indicators, including sales and stock analysis, supplier price and delivery performance, and credit and cash flow forecasts."
Hargreaves continues, "Dashboards 3.0 gives manufacturers, wholesalers and distributors much faster access to management information from any department, whether that’s Sales, Production, Finance or Warehousing. The new release also provides a much deeper insight into sources of profit and cost. You can now quickly compare current and historic performance or ask ‘what-if’ questions about the future with just a few clicks of a mouse button."
Sporting a revised look and feel, Dashboards 3.0 gives end-users direct access to a broader range of performance data. More charts have been added and more intuitive ways to drill-down to line item details have been included to make the system easier to use than ever. New dashboards have been added too: the Sales Order Management dashboard allows you to view orders received but not yet despatched, ensuring that every order is delivered on time, every time; the Production Dashboard allows businesses to analyse good product and scrap rates and to see the causes of downtime and labour or material inefficiency; and the Finance Dashboard allows businesses to analyse aged debtors and creditors and have a complete 360 view across all ledgers.
Solarsoft Dashboards put real power in the hands of management and cut the bulk and cost of traditional reports programmed in IT departments. Dashboards give a clear view of company performance and, because they are fed directly from operational data, they are always up to date and accurate. Dashboards are a vital and cost-effective tool for informed decision making in difficult times.
