If not, then your data is vulnerable to loss from software bugs and hardware and power problems. SX.enterprise has supported a robust relational database since 1992. Updates occur reliably and securely, ensuring that your mission-critical information is accurate and available. Because SX.enterprise uses a relational database, managers are able to generate queries and reports quickly and easily using twenty-first century tools like Brio, Crystal Reports, and Microsoft Excel.
If you find yourself having to stop driving new business at the end of each month to “close the books”, then you need to switch to SX.enterprise. There is no need to perform end of day, month, quarter or yearly processing with SX.enterprise. It is completely automated.
In fact, one client sends all of his month-end reports to his e-mail address so he doesn’t have to worry about the printer running out of paper. He was especially grateful for how much time SX.enterprise’s month-end saves him on the last day of the month.
SX.enterprise enables you to schedule many different reports to run on a regular basis. Imagine being able to schedule a report such as “Pick Ticket Print” to run every half hour of the day in case a pick ticket was not printed.
Considered by many businesses as “the most important screen in your business”, the SX.enterprise customer service inquiry allows your customer service representative to find any document at any stage of its life cycle by entering as much or as little information as known.
Customer service begins with being able to answer your customer’s questions quickly and easily. SX.enterprise’s price and availability inquiry screen allows users to quickly tell a customer or prospect what their price is along with availability. A click of a button stores this information in an electronic worksheet. This information can be retrieved at a later time to convert to a quote or order.
The SX.enterprise order processing system has extensive features that you need to effectively run your business. You can determine multiple add-ons to a sale such as tax, freight and handling from any entry screen within the system. Backorders are created during order entry, pick ticket print, shipping or invoicing. Order confirmations can be eliminated by processing invoices and printing, e-mailing or faxing them automatically to your customer every evening.
Order processing is quicker due to faster keyword searches and built-in intelligence in the form layout and function. Order screens can be defined by whatever works for your business, and can be extended by the user without programming. SX.enterprise allows nine user-defined fields on every program within the system.
SX.enterprise allows you to copy any document to any other document such as past invoice to order, order to quote or invoice to credit memo. In addition, you can copy a document to a different customer or different warehouse and decide whether to have the system re-price it.
SX.enterprise offers flexible online purchasing capabilities such as unlimited lead time detail, review surplus stock across all warehouses with the ability to issue a warehouse transfer rather than purchasing the product, product line review to determine what products may be purchased in the near future if a purchasing recommendation does not meet the buying target, two years of usage history with the ability to immediately override, the ability to change and update restocking controls by product on-line rather than having to wait until the end of the month, and the ability to view recommended purchases in priority order such as rush orders, order ties, and non-stocks.
SX.enterprise allows users to price by the ship to / job, family pricing, pricing by warehouse, lot pricing, and immediately turn quote prices into pricing records. Commissions can be calculated based on the different pricing records within the system.
Non-stocks can be created immediately within the sales order and tied both ways to the purchase order. Users can view the purchase order or sales order with a click of a button. SX.enterprise provides a report of the non-stock and direct ship transactions that have been received, but not yet invoiced at the end of the month. SX.enterprise has a special adjustment program to adjust the quantities and costs on non-stock and direct ship transactions.
SX.enterprise can roll up kit component prices, costs or both. Kit components can be backordered and then immediately viewed within the online purchasing program, “Buyers Control Center” and tied to a sales order line. Backordered components are automatically filled when they are received. You can have non-stock kits, non-stock components on kits, kit options, and required / optional components on kits.
If a purchase order is received at one cost and the accounts payable invoice shows a different amount, SX.enterprise will adjust the product’s cost of the remaining quantity on hand and ensure an adjustment is made to the cost of goods sold.
SX.enterprise allows you to optionally consolidate purchases for multiple warehouses onto one purchase order.
When product is received on a purchase order and there are customer orders waiting for these products, three things need to happen: 1.) The PO needs to be received into the system; 2.) The backorders need to be filled; and 3.) The pick tickets need to be printed. SX.enterprise makes it happen automatically.
If you have to manually perform this task, then you are not using SX.enterprise. Both the customer and vendor inquiries will display a list of all invoices paid by a certain check number. Additionally, when a user voids an AP check, the system remembers which invoices were paid by the check and automatically changes these invoices back into open payables.
When SX.enterprise processes an invoice through Invoice Processing, the system has the option to automatically add non-stock items to the catalog. If a catalog product already exists, it will update it with any changes in cost or price.
There are hyperlinks everywhere in SX.enterprise. When viewing the SX.enterprise equivalent of the FACTS’ ledger cards, for example, the user may hyperlink to the related purchase order or order entry transactions. The user may also hyperlink from an AR open invoice to the order entry detail, and from GL postings to the related transaction.
If there are any discrepancies during the shipping process, SX.enterprise will immediately force a cycle count on that product.
SX.enterprise handles inventory exceptions, such as high sales or stock outs, in a much more streamlined manner, with many being totally automated (no more “flagged items”).
SX.enterprise handles all types of rebates along with month end reconciliation.
If a customer deducts the sales tax and pays an invoice short, the user can recall the tax amounts from Cash Receipts Entry and write-off the sales tax. This entry also updates the Sales Tax register.
SX.enterprise does not limit you on how much financial, sales analysis and past sales data you keep within the system.
SX.enterprise supports the use of multiple currencies in the standard product.
Extensive notes and LINKS (e.g. to technical documents, etc.) are available in most master files and transaction document files. Notes may be secured and/or required. Many master file notes may also be designated to automatically print on selected documents, as either extended description or instructions.
SX.enterprise allows AP to be posted to prior periods.
