The ABCs of an Integrated Paperless Solution

The ABC’s of an Integrated Paperless Solution

Document management systems do so many different things – it can be a little intimidating at
first. We want to do our best to simplify the topic for you so you can focus on the functionality that resonates most for your company. Let’s take it back to the basics by looking at the ABC’s of a paperless solution and what it means to you.

One of the main reasons companies look at going paperless is so that everyone in the organization has easy access to the documents they need from wherever they are. The problem with paper documents is they can only exist in one place unless you make copies and spend twice the time and costs to file them.

When an employee signs onto a document management application from their computer, they can easily search and find any document they have the proper security rights to view. They can quickly take an action on the document – approve, route, notate, email, code – whatever the case may be. And all those actions will be recorded behind the scenes for auditing and reporting purposes.

Another common challenge caused by paper documents is the struggle to bring documents together. If a customer requires back up documentation when you deliver their invoices, that often means hunting down each of the associated documents, making copies and re-filing the originals. If that’s a typical practice for you, it can eat up a lot of your time.

With a paperless system like Sage ERP Document Management, documents are brought together by way of similar property values. If you were to search by check number, for example, you could find a check and all of the invoices that check was used to pay for. All related documents can be quickly opened side-by-side for verification or attached to an email and delivered.

In their paper form, documents can be easily lost, misplaced or buried. Those involved in processing the document lose visibility and can run the risk of getting charged heavy late fees for invoices not paid on time.

With an electronic workflow, everyone can view a document and its status right from their desktop at any given time. Alerts can be scheduled to notify employees if a document isn’t acted on in a certain amount of time. This means managers don’t have to stay on top of everyone’s tasks anymore to make sure things get done, but they have the ability to run status reports from the system if they choose to do so.

These are just a few of the main reasons to start thinking about going paperless. For more information or to schedule a demonstration, give Arxis Technology a call!

SugarCRM Certified for Avalara’s Sales Tax Automation Solution

We're pleased to announce the pairing of two outstanding solutions: SugarCRM and AvaTax.

From the press release, "SugarCRM customers can now use Avalara's AvaTax capabilities from within Sugar's existing workflow to automatically calculate the final sales tax amount on every quote. This eliminates the tedious work and complexity of calculating taxes across multiple jurisdictions and helps businesses focus on their core offering."

Initial reactions to the connector have been very positive. One unnamed source ranked the duo slightly behind "salt and pepper," but just ahead of "love and marriage."  He concluded by saying, "I suppose it's possible to have one without the other, but why?"

(So that last quote was a joke, but trying to manually comply with the rapidly changing sales tax landscape is no joke at all.) For many professionals, calculating sales tax remains a manual and error-prone process, and one that increases the risk of sales tax audits, penalties, and fines.

The last thing that sales reps need is the hassle of manually calculating sales tax. It's cumbersome, inefficient, and error-prone, leading to delayed or lost sales and angry prospects and customers. Now, with the integration of SugarCRM and AvaTax, reps are equipped to be efficient and accurate with all their quotes.

Sage Pro ERP and Sage PFW ERP Product Retirement and Migration

Sage Pro ERP and Sage PFW ERP
Product Retirement and Migration


Sage’s announcement and why the products are being sunsetted

Sage has made the decision to officially “retire” Sage Pro and PFW. Their decision to do so is based on unsupported technology in both products and to better focus their internal efforts on their strategic ERP products – Sage 100, Sage 300, and Sage X3.

Sage Pro and PFW have had long and productive lives. But they’re long in the tooth and it’s time for them to grab a comfy porch rocking chair, a glass of iced tea, and reminisce about the good old days when FoxPro and Visual Basic 2008 were young and hip. 

As a Sage Pro or PFW customer, you have a unique window of opportunity to migrate to Sage 100, 300 or X3. With the license promo and the Sage Migration tool, there’s no better time to do so.

The window of opportunity to migrate

Now is the time to start planning your successful transition to a modern ERP system like Sage 100, 300 or X3. Moving to a new solution provides a more powerful, scalable, and integrated system to support your ongoing business needs. Below are three compelling reasons to move to a modern ERP system today!
  • Improve critical business processes—Receive regular product enhancements and take advantage of modern solutions for mobility, business intelligence, cloud, and more.
  • Upgraded technology—Sage ERP solutions are based on scalable and flexible programming languages, incorporating the latest advances in technology.
  • Additional functionality—Modern Sage ERP solutions offer add-on solutions and modules for CRM, payroll, HR, and more. In addition a variety of endorsed solutions provide industry-specific applications that seamlessly connect to Sage ERP and your core financial data—making the cross-functional integration of Sage ERP throughout the company a reality.

When you trade up from Sage Pro ERP or Sage PFW ERP to a new Sage ERP solution on or before September 30, 2013, you'll receive credit through the Sage Investment Protection Program. How the program works:

·    Trade in Sage Pro/PFW for one of our modern Sage ERP solutions.

·    Sage will credit based on your existing Sage Pro/PFW license and which product you switch to.

How does the migrator tool work?


Why work with Arxis?

Use and Design Interactive Workflow Diagrams for Completing Tasks
Visual process flows are interactive workflow diagrams that show the steps to complete a task or process. Elements on the process flows are linked to Sage 300 ERP tasks; clicking an element starts the linked task. Other actions, such as showing or hiding objects on the process flow, can also be assigned to elements.
Seven predefined process flows are available on the Visual Process Flows sub-menus. You can use these predefined process flows as templates to create your own customized process flows, which appear on the Custom Process Flows menu in the applicable modules.
The Visual Process Flows Manager task, located on the Visual Process Flows Setup menu, allows you to create, copy, and delete custom process flows, modify their settings, and open them in the Visual Process Flow Designer.
