Has it been taking longer and longer to post your Macola Progression or ES transactions and print reports? Are you fearful of purging old data in case you need that information in the future?

Why Macola Software Users Need to Think About E-Commerce

A recent eMarketer article reported that Holiday shopping is becoming more and more mobile. Their research showed that in 2012 Holiday shoppers were more likely than ever to use smartphones for some mobile assistance. When asked how they used their devices for holiday shopping, higher percentages of smartphone owners said yes to every activity than did so in 2011. "More than eight in ten smartphone owners researched and browsed for products on their phone, up 15 percentage points from 2011, and nearly three-quarters bought something via mobile, up 19 percentage points."

The point is, people continue to purchase online and are increasingly turning to their mobile devices for shopping assistance. All businesses, inclusing those using Macola ERP solutions, should be making sure their websites are optimized for e-commerce and mobile shopping. At Algorithm, we have partnered with Sniperdyne to offer e-commerce solutions to our Macola software users.

Top 10 Reasons to Upgrade from Macola Progression to ES

Macola ES is an ERP business software solution designed with Business Process Management capabilities. We recently hosted a webinar highlighting the top 10 reasons your company should move from Macola Progression to ES. Here are the highlights: 

10. Exact Putting Development Effort Here 

Much of Exact's effort and development time and money is being spent on ES. Especially enhancements for accounting, distribution and manufacturing applications. In our opinion, Progression is in maintenance mode and no major enhancements are being made there. 

9. Reporting Improvement 

Exact is embracing Microsoft SQL Reporting Services and is expanding Crystal reports. SQL is very exciting and powerful technology that creates beautiful, graphical reports. Exact is in the process of offering SQL Reporting Services with other crystal reports.

eCommerce Is More Than You Think

Posted on May 22, 2012 by Zac Williams

I would estimate that about half of the financial transactions that I do in my personal life are completed online. I do my banking, pay my bills, buy music / apps, shop for clothes, book flights / hotels, order dinner…the list goes on and on. Did you know that during Cyber Monday last year the US spent $1,250,000,000 online? Yes, that’s $1.25 billion with a ‘B’. In one day.

In their State of the U.S. Online Retail Economy in Q1 2012, comScore reported that almost 10% of e-commerce sales came from a mobile device.

I know that I’m not exactly breaking new ground by listing stats about online spending. But with the prevalence of eCommerce in our personal lives, it’s surprising how few of our customers have invested in an eCommerce presence for their own business. If you exclude the use of EDI (Electronic Data Interchange), which is included under the eCommerce umbrella, the number of customers that have made an eCommerce investment is staggeringly low. However, thanks to our friends at Sniperdyne, we’re seeing that trend begin to change.

Going Mobile in a Macola World

Posted on May 02, 2012 by Andy Smith

One of the most-asked questions we hear at Algorithm, is “How can I use my iPad/tablet/smarthphone to access my Macola system?” While the best answer to that question depends on exactly how you need to use Macola on those devices, we believe we’ve developed answers to fit almost any scenario.

As you may have already discovered, unlike many ERP vendors, Exact doesn’t yet have strong native apps for the iOS and Android device markets. Synergy Enterprise does have limited apps available with contact, calendar, and workflow capabilities, but interaction with Macola data is absent.
