| No || Features || Description |
|1||Approval process Workflow Management||Business owners assign multiple tasks to Sales or Finance or Production teams with different dates to deliver etc. Ensure it’s done; Owners follow with emails, phone calls and reminders. How can we avoid it and assign the responsibility and time to complete at the assignment level? |
Our workflow management tool is central to business needs and helps departments to manage their complex internal communication process and action to happen based on some trigger etc. This helps company’s efforts to improve the process and efficiency. This helps to find the bottlenecks in the process and how to improve it depending on the importance of the activities and the resources availability.
|2||Materials Requirements Planning (MRP)||Material Requirements Planning (MRP) looks at Demand for Finished items (Sales and Forecasting) and uses product structure information / Bill of Materials (BOM) to calculate demand for Components / Raw materials. It also considers the Items in purchase pipeline and yet to receive etc. ACTouch.com’s MRP follows the backward schedule and based on the due date of the delivery, the materials are planned and scheduled. |
It creates automatic Purchase Indents and Planned Work Orders. It reduces 90% of workload for your teams.
|3||Demand Notes and Materials issuances.||An excellent module for the Manufacturing companies. |
Large Machine manufacturing companies faces major issues with managing inventory as the Raw materials (RM) are issued to production department, as the large machine components are getting ready and being assembled. This process may take from 15 days to 180 days. Due to this reason, the stocks are mismatched and they struggle with actual stock inventory. Because the traditional ERP will not control this as the RM are consumed when a machine is reported.
Demand notes module helps to block the materials as the Raw Materials issued and these are tracked against the WO and its Operations. As the materials are issued at different stages, the Costs, Labor costs are tracked to finished goods level.
|4||Import Purchase and Product Landing cost problems||Do you know your products “Landing Cost”, if you are importing from overseas? Many ERPs fail to give exact value to the customers on their “Landing Costs”. This helps us to value the product and decide on the selling price. |
The Landing Cost consists of Product purchase costs (Multi Currency) and Insurance, Customs, Taxes, Local logistics etc. But how you handle these multiple payments as these are paid to different Vendors?
Many businesses make loss by not focusing on these small and important factors.
|5||Import and Export Module with Packing List||Many ERPs don’t focus on the Import and Export business modules. Its complicated process with Packing List, that’s mapped to Sales Order (Multiple Sales Orders) and converts them into ONE INVOICE for receiving the payments. |
Many of our import and export customers have appreciated as it did a time saving of 65%.
|6||Maker-Checker process||One of the strong features of ACTouch.com is “Maker-Checker” feature and it works like “Enterer and Approver” concept for all the modules (You can enable to 20+ product modules). You decide where you want more controls and financial discipline. Disable the feature, if you don’t want it. More than that management can decide what level of transaction they want to see. |
ACTouch.com incorporated this feature based on the wide spread industry problems that we see in the business across the continents. We helped to avoid fraud and misuse of money
|7||Multi Site and Multi location management||Multi branches and an access control to stock locations |
A single company can have multiple business branches and can maintain Stocks and do all the transactions as per the business needs. Good example is you have one manufacturing unit, but multiple sales outlets. Let’s say, you have a branch in Bangalore and Chennai. Now you can manage both branches sitting at Bangalore including financial approvals.
|8||Multi Entity management with data consolidation across Companies.||Single sign-on with multiple companies. |
