For those failures though, there are certainly numerous successes in terms of finding new, more efficient ways to transact for goods and services.

One method companies have found to help streamline operations without cutting valuable resources is by implementing a comprehensive enterprise resource planning (ERP) software solution.

After using Savance Enterprise's Array add-ons for several years and establishing a strong, trusting relationship with Savance and its products, Florida-based Erin Electric decided to migrate its Array business system to Savance Enterprise.
"We started out knowing that we needed to streamline and simplify our processes for creating orders, tracking them throughout the process, and getting them to our customers as quickly as possible," explains Tom Heffernan, owner and founder of Erin Electric.

Drogen Electric quickly found that Savance Enterprise worked seamlessly with its existing system, providing much needed improvements in data access on the back end – with no disruptions to day-to-day business activities. In fact, the Savance software worked so well that Drogen anticipated implementing Savance's full Microsoft Windows-based functionality – which at the time was still in development – for many of its remaining processes as well.

After comparing several other business system vendors, Nelson Electric has signed an agreement with Savance to migrate from Epicor’s Array platform to Savance Enterprise.

There seems to be a lot of buzz on Amazon and how it might affect the wholesale distribution market. Independent distributors might actually have a valid concern as the distribution giant starts to target beyond the consumer looking for a great deal on the latest electronic gadget or paperback book. One comparison comes to mind when I read the last article from the NAED on the distributor's perspective to Amazon - digital music and media.

Yet another merger and acquisition as Epicor's equity owners seek a buyer. I thought the .com bubble was over! Just since Savance has actively pursued Array customers, the company has been known as Trade Service Systems, TradePower, Activant, Epicor and has been owned by so many private equity firms that even employees can't figure out who's cutting their paycheck this week.

In today's competitive economic climate, it's more important than ever for your business to take advantage of every opportunity possible to cut down on inefficiencies, redundancies, and waste. Because the stakes are so high, even the smallest drag in any department can lead to BIG losses and a decreased ability to compete in a tough marketplace.

It's not uncommon to hear from providers of ERP software that their solutions will help your company become "future ready." But in today’s uncertain economic climate, no one seems to know what the future holds – much less how your company should best go about becoming future ready. For many companies, it is more important to know that any investment they are considering making – in the form of upgrades to their existing ERP software or a complete migration to a new system – will result in immediate improvements and a quick ROI.

Leslie Electric is our newest addition to the SavanceEnterprise users. Leslie is replacing an outdated FACTS system with the state-of-the-art Savance Enterprise system.

With Savance Enterprise 8.0, every document that is printed from the server can now also be exported into a PDF document with a configurable path and file name based on a configurable set of rules. This cuts out the process of scanning documents and can reduce paperwork. A company can even choose to print solely to this method for such things as a billing copy and adjust their workflow to utilize electronic documents rather than relying on a paper version.
