ProfitMaker Upgrade: Make Money with Better Reporting, Top Suppliers and Credit Card Billing

Tuesday August 5, 2008 | Filed under: Industry Initiatives, Members, News About ASI

ASI Computer provides ProfitMaker - the leading business management and accounting software for our industry - and today we're upgrading it so you can make more money.

The new features of the upgrade are powerful and include enhanced reports, integration with top apparel suppliers, supplier ratings and credit card billing - all of which will increase sales, improve your service and streamline workflow:

  • Enhanced reporting capability will allow users to access profitability reports, open order reports and order histories from any computer's Web browser.  Distributors and suppliers will be more efficient and information will be more easily accessible and available in greater detail.
  • ProfitMaker also provides ordering and inventory integration with more apparel suppliers, in addition to the current Web ordering feature offered by Top 40 supplier SanMar.  Distributors can now easily enter orders through ProfitMaker directly with Bodek & Rhodes, Alpha Shirt Company and Broder.  
  • Supplier ratings are now available.  Distributors can check a supplier's rating in ProfitMaker as they are completing a purchase order to ensure the quality of the supplier, and can rate their transactions within ProfitMaker and send supplier ratings directly to ESP Online.
In addition, the upgrade provides a credit card processing system that allows ProfitMaker's distributors to send invoices through email, along with a link inviting customers to pay by credit card online immediately.  Using this feature makes payment processes quicker and improves cash flow and collections.  

The new release also includes an activity manager that provides a way to schedule and manage all daily activities through Outlook, including phone calls, emails, faxes and letters.  Also, suppliers who subscribe to ASI CreditConnectTM can see a distributor's real-time credit score when viewing a customer record or an order, and suppliers can access the customer's credit alert information.
