Skolnik Industries Automates Sales Orders for Sage MAS with ACOM's EXCM Document Management Solution
Long Beach, California, May 19, 2011
ACOM Solutions, Inc., creator of EZContentManager (EZCM) document management for Sage MAS, today announced that its capabilities and benefits are profiled in a new case study covering its implementation at Skolnik Industries.
Skolnik is the industry leader for manufacturing steel drums—including those used to dispose of hazardous materials and nuclear waste. Even the best companies struggle with paperwork, so founder and CEO, Howard Skolnik, made the decree: it's time to go paperless. Commercial sales orders were getting lost, and nuclear orders took a week to process.
Skolnik's Sage representative, Partners in Technology, recommended EZContentManager from ACOM as the paperless solution for MAS 90 sales order entry. Integration took a week onsite, and the system went live in January 2011.
Customer Service now scans all orders, invoices, shipping documents, and correspondence into EZCM—these orders are no longer lost, and up to 180,000 documents per year are shredded instead of filed (and misfiled). Customers now get answers in seconds instead of hours, days, or even a week in some cases.
Nuclear orders are now automatically routed electronically for review and approval by EZCM's workflow engine, and take only 2–3 days to process instead of one week. No more copies are needed, saving over 10,000 sheets of paper per year.
EZCM's workflow engine alone saves $34,000 in salary annually, which is now reallocated to staff performing higher value tasks. The Skolnik team is now ready for any audit, and is working toward utilizing EZCM's OCR functionality to automate data entry, and extending EZCM to both accounts receivable and accounts payable for invoice processing automation.
According to Dean Ricker, VP of Sales: "It's great. I'm very happy and absolutely would recommend EZContentManager.” Customer Service goes on to say: "EZCM is fantastic. If a customer calls in regarding an invoice, we can look it up in MAS 90 with a couple of clicks. In the past, we'd have to put them on hold and hope the invoice wasn't misfiled. If the order was lost, it could take a half-hour or a week to find.” According to QA: "EZCM makes my life easy. When we have to research a sales order now, we can do it right from our desktop without an hour of digging in the file room.” And engineering says: "EZCM is excellent to work with. I've been programming from a young age and I think it's magic. I love it.”
Sage MAS 90 Online Training Grows in Popularity for Chicago Area Sage Resellet
Partners in Technology, a Chicago area Sage MAS 90 & MAS 200 reseller and consultant, sees spike in demand for online training from new and existing MAS 90 customers.
WHEATON, IL – October 05, 2010 – Partners In Technology (http://www.partners-in-tech.com/), a Chicago Area Sage MAS 90 and MAS 200 reseller and consultant, reports a recent spike in demand for it's Sage MAS 90 online training courses. The convenient online training programs have proven to be popular with new and existing MAS 90 customers alike.
Merilyn Van Zwieten with Partners in Technology says MAS 90 online training is frequently a customer's best option. "Companies with multiple locations see how convenient and affordable training can be when delivered via the Internet. Using tools like GoToMeeting, we deliver interactive and totally customized MAS 90 training courses that staff, managers, and executives all over the country can attend simultaneously. That way, everyone sees the same processes and hears the same information to ensure training is delivered consistently across the company.”
Van Zwieten thinks that both cost savings and flexibility are key factors in the recent popularity of MAS 90 online training. "Given that the economy has been challenging for a while now, online training is an attractive alternative to traditional on-site training where travel, lodging, and schedule coordination can add significant costs.” Van Zwieten adds that MAS 90 online training programs are also much simpler to plan because their MAS 90 and MAS 200 certified training consultants can provide as much or as little training to meet the customer's specific needs. "We can set up a GoToMeeting session on-the-fly, tap into their MAS 90 system, and train our customers using their own data.”
She notes that MAS 90 training isn't just for new users. "We've provided training for existing customers who just needed a refresher, recently changed their workflow, added new staff without MAS 90 experience, or added a new module. We also get a lot of requests for training from Sage MAS 90 and MAS 200 users that no longer have a relationship with a Sage authorized reseller and want to work with Partners In Technology to upgrade their system and get trained on the newest features and capabilities.”
While Partners in Technology still offers on-site MAS 90 training programs, the benefits of online training are hard to ignore, Van Zwieten says. "It's personalized training minus the expense of travel and on-site visits. It's a huge time and budget saver.”
