Inventory management is necessary as your fixed assets are on the jump, you need a close-knit team or a multitasking module to monitor an individual flow. Inventory control allows you to track all materials that are in stock.
By storing data in the workflow automation system, the manager can instantly see what parts are available on a particular day.

It is not enough to manage assets only. It is also essential to analyze the state of affairs and provide an informative report to your boss, colleague or client. Robust tools to help you learn more about your production materials are automated reports.
This is a great way to receive information about assets by analyzing them online. Besides, your managers do not need to spend time looking for the right information or update data at every turn to create and publish business reports over a while.
The system stores all your data and generates comprehensive reports that acquaint with basic metrics simply and understandably.

Goods and sales management
The Sales Management Module allows you to place and monitor orders. The system notifies you about transactions related to purchasing or ordering additional components for production. Thus, it is easy for the manager to track the process progress and be sure that the order is delivered without any delays.
The flexible module informs managers how the materials go through the whole process and when are ready for delivering. Storing all transactions in the database allows you to generate reports and make analyses or forecasts.
Automating these processes will make it easier for you to understand customers' needs, allocate resources, and improve your service.
Customer relationship management
Customer relationship module provides tools for managing communication between the manufacturer and the customer. Of course, your team can use e- spreadsheets to keep an eye on each customer and store information, but it requires numerous manual operations. Also, your customers can come from different social networks, and following each of them is a time-consuming challenge.
With CRM, you can simply add them to the system and become even more customer-centric. Thus, your sales managers help consumers get answers faster, cope with possible difficulties with goods or services, and manage requests with a multi-task tool. It reduces the number of delays, involves the customer in the process and impacts the sales process.

Here you can also set the status to each lead, add tasks related to clients, monitor the completion status, and get an analysis of how the process is moving. In CRM, you can also add notes, view the entire communication history, download a complete list of all customers as a CSV., or schedule meetings.
Digital diagrams and graphs show how your team copes with tasks at each stage of the deal-making. Transparent algorithms help create an operation chain that improves the process, promotes effective decision-making and advances your collaboration with the customer.
