Business Optimization Review: Don’t Just Survive, THRIVE!

Do you ever wonder if you don’t know what you don’t know? This is not only a question to be asked in life, but what about the full use of your software? It could be that you don’t know what you don’t know. Do you recall your go live, when you thought you would ‘go live and survive’ and implement or add procedures to make more effective use of your investment in SX.e software? How many months, or years, has that been?

Think about a few areas of SX.enterprise software

Inventory/Purchasing – Is 6 months backward still the best method for calculating usage? Is there a better way to address frozen conditions? Is there any way to mass update products? How about costs, what is the update procedure? Do you score your vendors? Are your buyers using the RRAR?

Systems – Are the administrative options set to what your business requires today? Do you need to add custom fields to screens? Are you making use of profiles? Are the users aware of the total customization options for the screens they most often use? Did you know you can add favorites? How about adding external web pages for product information? Do your forms best represent your business?

Accounting – Do your customers ask for information you are not quite sure how to provide? Would they like consolidated invoicing? Are there more efficient ways to handle payables and receivables? Is it time to use the invoice center for AP?

Order Entry – Are your users making the best use of lookups? Are your users aware that a simple right click brings up the last 5 customers or last 5 products? How are returns handled, are they being tied? How are exceptions handled? What reports are being used?
