SWK Technologies’ Apparel Matrix tool for Sage 100 ERP is a time-saving enhancement for companies in apparel, hardware, lighting, paints and finishes, jewelry, or other industries that manufacture or distribute common product styles in a range of sizes, colors, or any other combination of two characteristics.
The Key to Successful Implementations
SWK Technologies has been successfully implementing software applications for almost 30 years. While we can certainly point to many different things when talking about what makes our implementation process work, I believe it all starts with a solid foundation of people who care about what they do and who have a strong, consistently followed methodology.
Sage Summit 2014: A Vision Come to Life
This year’s Sage Summit was incredible. Of course, Summit is almost always a success, and I’m glad that I went. This year, however, seemed different to me…and not only because of the new “reimagined” experience.
New Technology & Web Interface
It’s the technology that makes Sage ERP X3 Version 7 better than ever. Without getting into all the details (sorry IT folks!), a range of new technology components makes Sage X3 Version 7 a great forward-looking choice for mobile ERP. Simply put, Sage ERP X3 is built for the web. So whether you’re using Sage X3 on a mobile device, tablet, laptop, or PC, you get the same consistent look, feel, experience, and workflow no matter how you access the system.
Sage 100 ERP customers can now take advantage of Level 3 Credit Card Processing. This new functionality for the Sage Payment Solutions platform allows you to qualify for lower rates when processing business, commercial, and government payments. Here’s what you need to know.
It’s That Time of Year Again…
Sage Summit, the largest conference that SWK attends and plans for each year, is just around the corner and the final preparations are being worked on as I write these thoughts. Those of us who have been attending the Sage conferences for years understand the magnitude of work and energy that goes into it and how exhausting it can be.
The Software Publisher and the Software Reseller—an Evolving Relationship
Over the past few years, that landscape has changed dramatically. New cloud software vendors have emerged, including NetSuite and Acumatica. The economy has suffered greatly since 2008, bringing to an end the large numbers of new license deals everyone saw in the past. In this upheaval, we have learned that our installed base is a huge treasure for ongoing revenue.
Sometimes the Shortest Meetings Are the Best Meetings
For SWK Technologies’s executive team, it is important for us to make the effort to get on a plane and drop in on customers we haven’t met before so that we can hear all about who they are, what they do, what motivates them, and how their businesses are changing.
Managing Through Change
In the nine years that I’ve been the Chief Executive Officer at SWK, change has been a constant. We have grown not just in the number of staff, but in the depth of our collective knowledge, expertise and talent. Additionally, we have expanded geographically and now have six physical offices with members of our team residing in, at last count, 18 states!
Released in March, Sage 100 ERP Version 2014 is designed to connect you to the information you need to make better decisions, which is why you’ll find plenty of new features and options in Sage 100 Intelligence Reporting.
