A Business Journey! #N@WJourney

By: | Category: ERP

I am in the midst of packing up my home and getting ready to move my family across the country and as I make the preparations I can’t help but equate this process to what I talk to companies about every day.

The path you take in business is like a cross-country journey, along the way you have various obstacles to overcome. These obstacles shape the decisions you make and sometimes these decisions have a long-lasting impact. Our job at Net at Work is to help your company make the difficult technology decisions to define your path and set your trajectory in a direction that has a positive long-lasting impact on your organization.

Every day we talk with businesses about using Sage 300 to optimize operations of your business while at the same time making maximum use of other related technology available to you. In the process, one comment I hear far too often is “ I thought Sage was only accounting software”. I want to ensure you, Sage 300 along with its ecosystem of products offers integrated solutions that provide far more than an accounting solution. Integrating Sage 300 with connected solutions usually starts by understanding your current processes and what technology is being used today to address a challenge that was incurred along your journey.

Key questions to ask yourself to determine if I am getting the most out of my Sage 300 solutions?

Am I tracking related processes in separate applications or databases?

  • eCommerce
  • Manufacturing
  • Inventory
  • Customer / Vendor Interactions

Am I re-entering data into Sage 300?

  • Orders
  • Invoices
  • Customers
  • Vendors
  • Time

Am I manually compiling/consolidating reports?

  • Operational Reports
  • Financial Reports
  • KPI’s
  • Dashboards

Are my processes optimum or are they that way because that’s the way we have always done it?

If you answer YES to any of these questions, at some point along your business journey you were faced with an obstacle and a tough decision that has shaped the way you are doing business today. So now that you have identified the process, now what? As I stated our job at Net at Work is to help you navigate which technology and business processes will have a positive long-lasting impact on your business. This process most often starts with a 1-hour Account Review. This is a free service, all that is required is we will want as many stakeholders that interact with your current systems and processes to sit down with us for an hour to identify areas that you identify could be improved. From there we will provide you with a list of challenges you have identified, some options to look at overcoming them and help you understand the current cost related to your current processes. To get this process started, give us a call at 800-719-3307, email us at Sage@netatwork.com or reach out to your Account Manager and ask for an Account Review.

So back to my journey across the country, wish me luck and let my obstacles along the way be easy to navigate!
