How to Select the Best ERP System for your Business Needs

Topics: Advice for SMBs, ERP, ERP Evaluation

Posted on Dec 17, 2015 9:00:00 AM by Exact Macola

Selecting an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system can be extremely daunting and complex. With so many software solutions on the market, executives need guidelines on how to choose the solution that best fits their business.

Software Advice, a site dedicated to helping technology professionals select the ERP software they need to succeed, recently published an eBook titled, “Key Criteria for ERP Software Selection," which outlines the top factors to consider when selecting ERP software.

According to the eBook’s author, Forrest Burnson, “small to medium size businesses have more options than ever when it comes to implementing a fully-fledged ERP system.” Burnson went on to say, “In this day and age there aren't many good reasons for those growing businesses to continue using disparate systems and manual processes to execute on their business's operations when they're able to house all of their critical software under one roof for an affordable price. Understandably, it can be a daunting endeavor with so many vendors out there and so many considerations to factor in."

The eBook quotes Dan Griffin, director of product management at Exact Macola, discussing how an ERP solution can help manage and improve everyday business tasks. Dan also notes the importance of considering all of the business' needs and key requirements of the solution before making a selection.

Exact Macola 10.3 - Now GA!

Topics: Exact Macola News, Exact Macola 10

Posted on Dec 16, 2015 8:00:00 AM by Dan Griffin, Director of Product Management

I’m very excited to announce the availability of Exact Macola 10.3. As the name implies, this release is our third update to Exact Macola 10 that was originally released in June of 2014. As I’ve said many times, each release in the Exact Macola 10.x series should stay true to a handful of strategic focus areas. Those strategic areas are web services, mobile, workspaces, international support, and partnerships. I believe this 10.3 release represents those areas well.

On a side note, as we approach the end of the year, we also work on year-end tax updates. These are not available as part of the 10.3 release itself, but are made available for Exact Macola 10, Exact Macola ES, and Exact Macola Progression as a separate package.

Now let’s get to the good stuff. In Exact Macola 10.3, we added several new pieces of functionality:

Exact Macola 10 Tech Tip: Adding Dynamic Menus to a Single Data Point on Workspaces

Topics: Exact Macola 10, Technical Tips

Posted on Dec 1, 2015 9:00:00 AM by David Dozer

This blog post is intended for users who have experience designing custom Workspaces in SSRS and creating Action links for Workspace menus.

The introduction of Workspaces to Exact Macola 10 has allowed customers to tailor their user’s experience based on the role of that person and the unique functions that they serve. Menus are configured to allow users to have a myriad of choices available to them so they may take action on any pertinent data and operate in a contextual and natural way.

When designing a custom workspace there are some scenarios where you may wish to make the menu even “smarter” and display different options based on certain criteria being met even though the data is in the same grid.

For example, if you are joining data from your open orders and your historical posted orders into a single table, you may want the user to be able to drill down into the detail for those orders/invoices. You may also want them to be able to edit open orders but not see the option for posted orders. In a standard menu you would have to create menu links for both open and posted even though only one would be applicable.
