This Season (and This Post) Is All About Sharing in Sage 500 ERP (Sage MAS 500)

No one is sure if the story of the First Thanksgiving is true, when the Pilgrims and the Native Americans shared a delicious feast to celebrate a great harvest together, but the sharing spirit still lives on in our Thanksgiving dinner traditions.

One of the beauties of Thanksgiving dinner is that it’s a time when everyone gathers together to share great food, fun drinks, and exciting stories; sharing makes us all happier. The benefits of sharing apply in a business setting as well, because software that compiles data for rapidly growing companies and then shares it with the applications and people who need to act on the data is a pretty powerful tool.

Here are just a few things we’re grateful that the powerful Sage 500 ERP (Sage MAS 500) software shares:

  • Warehouse and Manufacturing Automation

Automation is an important tool that keeps your company on task and on time by reducing manual tasks and replacing them with computer-driven procedures. Not just for simple activities, this robust addition to Sage 500 ERP can help your company shave minutes off varied processes by:

  • Reducing your data entry time
  • Monitoring raw materials usage in real time
  • Tracking movement of goods and production using barcodes, RFID, and NFC

Not only do these benefits help you streamline your operations from end to end, they also help you deliver better, faster customer service with increased accuracy—and that’s something I’m sure your customers are grateful for this holiday season.

  • Handheld Access

If you haven’t yet realized how helpful handheld devices can be in your warehouse or manufacturing plant, try to imagine your personal life without your smartphone.

Like the rest of us, you probably use your smartphone to communicate easily with friends and family, take great photos to preserve important memories, and navigate through foreign cities with ease and confidence. Your smartphone helps you with mundane stuff too, like keeping track of your shopping list and your upcoming appointments. If you have an Apple Watch or a FitBit, you probably use them to improve your personal health and wellness.

If you think about it, your mobile devices make you more productive and efficient in your personal life, so you have more time to focus on the important things, instead of the dull, day-to-day things we used to have to track on paper. In fact, our smartphones do so much for us that I’m not sure how we got things done without them!

In the same way, handheld devices help your business become more productive by streamlining processes for all employees, easing material issues and returns, performing labor transactions, and making data entry effortless. This is all made possible by the single source of information that Sage 500 ERP provides its users, and we’re grateful we can help share that information with you anytime and anywhere.

Here’s to Many More Years of Sharing!

Sharing is what increases happiness in the world, and we want to say thank you for the opportunity to share great Scanco solutions and increase happiness for you and your employees in 2017.

Not only has the innovative Scanco software kept us solving fascinating distribution and manufacturing challenges for nearly 30 years, it’s also made it possible for us to do what we love every day: help your business succeed.
