Arxis Team Members on Key Sage Councils

Three members of the Arxis Technology team have been chosen as members of key Sage advisory councils!

1) David Cieslak - Mid-Market Business Partner Advisory Council
2) Bob Gaby - Sage MAS 500 Product Advisory Council
3) Jan Goodman - Sage Accpac ERP Product Advisory Council

According to the official press release on the product advisory councils,
"Sage created the PAC for selected business partners to provide feedback and recommendations for Sage product lines. PAC members meet on a regular basis with Sage product management and product development staff to support the long-term success of Sage products through validation of product plans and designs. PAC members are a resource to product management, designers/business analysts, usability designers, software developers, and other groups that require product-related feedback." 
We're thankful for the opportunity to assist the Sage leadership team as well as serve our customers to make their investment in Sage solutions as beneficial as possible!

The picture to the right was taken at the most recent council meeting. We can't wait to see what comes from their time together. "Make our customers more successful, we will!"

SCiftS Supplier's Night

Arxis had a wonderful time at the SCiftS (So. Cal. Institute of Food Technologist's Section) Supplier's Night on March 11 in Anaheim!

Highlights from the evening included:

1) Food! - What else? The assortment of cheese, chocolate, nuts, dried fruits and more was delectable!
2) People - the number of people who came by to say "hello," was phenomenal. They enjoyed our gummi hot dogs and hamburgers. At times, traffic was so heavy in the aisles that people could not get through. It's been a while since I've experienced that at a trade show!
3) Magnets - our nutritional label magnets were a hit! The headline "ERP Software with All the Right Ingredients" should be gracing file cabinets, refrigerators, children's travel games, and artificial joints all across the Southland!
4) Food & Beverage Software - we spoke with a number of people who are struggling with managing their operations with multiple applications and a host of Excel spreadsheets. They were quite interested to hear how it truly is possible to have an integrated software solution that includes accounting, inventory management, manufacturing, quality control, compliance reporting, food safety, and more! The capabilities of MAS 500 and O2 Process Manufacturing can provide significant benefits to growing food and beverage manufacturers and distributors.
5) Partnership - it was a pleasure to have Matt Ingebrigtsen, our partner advocate at Sage, join us for part of the evening. It's another indication of Sage's commitment to their partners and the food and beverage vertical.

Let us know if we can help you better manage your operations! And if you would like one of our sweet magnets to affix to your magnetic object of choice, don't hesitate to drop me a line at mseverance@arxistechnology.com!
