Empowering sales team with fast access to inventory data on a handheld device
Across all its locations, Avon Protection has more than 250 users on Sage X3. They primarily use the web client but also have many mobile users. One unexpected benefit of Sage X3 is its value to the company’s mobile workforce. Sales reps travel with a tablet PC and can pull up customer sales history plus various sales and product-related dashboards, allowing them to suggest additional products, and if the customer is ready to order, they can quickly check stock at any of the Avon Protection locations. It has turned Sage X3 into a valuable sales tool. Avon Protection uses the Excel add-in for SEI to produce many of its financial reports, allowing the company to leverage an application most finance personnel are adept at. The software’s scheduling function allows employees and their managers to schedule a menu of reports to be delivered automatically at a specified frequency, placing information where it needs to be and when it needs to be there.
