What makes an ERP solution more usable?

Having the same look and feel—no matter the device

You can accomplish much more, much faster when you can access full ERP functionality online, using your browser and mobile device of choice. With Sage ERP X3 version 7, you can go where your business takes you—check on inventory, take orders, approve expenses, or pull up-to-the-minute reports—and make informed decisions on the spot.

Intuitive workflows that increase productivity

Navigating your ERP system should be as intuitive as browsing a website. With the new Sage ERP X3 version 7, navigate the web-based interface using familiar hyperlinks, page scrolling, and search. You can bookmark favorites for quick access and avoid digging through lengthy menu options; relevant menus appear when you need them. Visual Process Maps give you a clear, graphic-based view of the task at hand and lead you through each step. No more convoluted paths to get what you need. Now you can focus on what you have to do, not how to do it.

Reduced time and costs for training

An intuitive user interface reduces the time and cost of deploying new software dramatically. When employees can learn a new system more quickly and easily, they take a more active role developing and managing new workflows. This automates and accelerates more company processes. Even occasional users can help cover when someone is out sick or activity spikes, with minimal training on the system.

Immersive information

Have pertinent information when and where you need it so you do not have to waste time searching for it. Intuitive ERP systems like Sage ERP X3 version 7 provide search capabilities (similar to Google) across all functions and eliminate clutter, so you can focus on what is most relevant in the context of any given task.

Personalized views for every person

It is critical for modern ERP solutions to offer easy personalization based on role and preference. For example, the customer view a sales rep needs is different from that of a field technician. That is why Sage ERP X3 version 7 lets you customize views using a simple drag-and-drop process. You can organize information in lists or tabs, move important items to the top of the page, hide fields you do not use, and create shortcuts to favorite sections in one click. Productivity soars when you can configure your ERP solution to work the way you do.
