TREVOSE, PA – October 23, 2009 - ASI Computer Systems Inc., the leading provider of business management software in the advertising specialty industry, today announced new features for ProfitMaker that speed monthly close procedures and simplify operations.
ProfitMaker, the premier order management and accounting system, now allows distributors to schedule month-end reports to run automatically. Users can choose to start the processing immediately or at a specific day and time, and reports will be stored in a corresponding and easily-accessible directory.
The new enhancements also include:
- Payments using credit cards: distributors and suppliers can order a payment to a credit card company, while simultaneously removing the open invoice for the related vendor being paid by the credit card. No paper involved.
- Automated email alerts: distributors and suppliers can setup email alerts for key events in ProfitMaker to provide information to decision-makers when they need it. Examples include alerts for order follow-up, past-due invoices from customers and reorder notices.
- Vendor document folders: documents, graphics files and scanned correspondence for each vendor (or item) can be stored in one document folder and accessed anytime within the order entry graphics tab.
The increasing level of sophistication and number of useful features in ProfitMaker continues to meet ever-changing customer demands and helps businesses find new opportunities, better manage operations, improve efficiency, direct business growth and save time.
“Distributors, suppliers and decorators love ProfitMaker because they have more time for selling and spend way less time on order management and office tasks,” said David Wirth, president and chief operations officer of ASI Computer Systems. “It’s powerful software that works alone or with other office programs, to make your business operations one seamless process.”
ProfitMaker already integrates with ESP Online to streamline order flow and to provide an electronic link between distributors and suppliers, reducing error rates and time spent on follow-up. Distributors who use ProfitMaker can access ESP Online’s product images and pricing and import the information directly into ProfitMaker.
Suppliers who are subscribers to ASI CreditConnect can also continue to check a distributor’s real-time credit score in ProfitMaker when viewing a customer’s record or an order, and can access the customer’s credit alert information by clicking on the score in the customer record.
In addition to handling operations, ProfitMaker can help with marketing by tracking prospect lists for sales representatives and by performing merges for targeted direct mail campaigns.
The upgrade is available now to download through the “Customer Portal” on the left side of asicomp.com. To view a video demo of ProfitMaker, click here, or to request a personal demo, click here.
