Geared to meet the unique needs of electronic systems contractors, new capabilities help companies save time, gain deeper insight into project processes, and improve operating efficiency throughout their business.
Enhancements to SI include
Sales and Quoting Management
Quantity-based Quoting, ideal for large-scale security and structured cabling projects, improves application performance while allowing salespeople to develop a scope and budget in a fraction of time. Items (i.e. products, labor, packages, and solutions) may now be entered by quantity, without the need to assign location and system type, making it easy to price out and modify system estimates on-the-fly.
Products/items now have a newPurchase Cost field, which improves multi-currency support by enabling users to accurately track the cost for an item in one currency and present the price for that item in a quote in different currency, regardless of currency conversion.
Inventory TrackingNewTracknicity and TRXio integrations help integrators manage their inventory, which at the same time ensures that inventory items, whether pulled from stock or order for a project, are efficiently, seamlessly, and accurately tracked from proposal through being purchased, received, staged, picked, delivered, installed, and serviced, thereby keeping projects on schedule while helping to reduce unnecessary and unwanted inventory buildup and avoid duplicate product purchases.
SI v18 also includes several additional performance enhancements to help boost productivity and achieve healthier bottom-line results.
