Uh, oh, here I go
Wading through a lot of stuff you know
Juggling it all while I'm balancing on a wire
Slow down, I have found
Seems that every time I turn around
Got one foot in the muck and another foot in the mire
Well, I'm scaling down, pulling back
Got to try
To simplify

“Simplify” Wes King

At Arxis, we love the idea of simplifying things. We want to help our clients streamline processes and procedures, eliminate inefficiencies, and reduce complexity. There are a myriad of ways to do this, but to keep this manageable, we’ll keep it to three for now:

#1 - Stop Cutting and Pasting!

If your business relies heavily on spreadsheets, it probably means you are spending hours creating reports that could be built in minutes.

Indicee is a web-based Business Intelligence (BI) tool that enables you to:

                                       • eliminate cutting and pasting of data
                                       • stop recreating the same reports every month
                                       • combine data from multiple applications
                                       • automate reporting on the web
                                       • optimize reporting without a major IT investment

Conditions such as leads that haven’t been followed up on, stock items that require re-order, and invoices that are overdue for payment.

An assistant who takes care of repetitive business processes. Processes such as delivering client invoices and statements, assigning leads to salespeople, and distributing analytical reports to your staff.

KnowledgeSync is that type of an assistant! It can:

             • Trigger personalized alerts about any business conditions via e-mail, fax, pager,
                cell phone, screen pop, and Web browser

             • Automate the delivery of forms, documents, and reports to clients and staff
             • Execute workflow to deliver invoices and purchase orders, and schedule
                intelligent follow-ups
             • Monitor and auto-respond to the content of incoming e-mail messages and Web form
             • Dynamically analyze data between multiple business functions (e.g. Accounting &

  1. Orbis TaskCentre is worth a look too. It offers multi-threading (can run multiple processes at a time) and can provide true, web-form based workflow.
