APTEAN PROCESS ERP IMPROVES THE CUSTOMER EXPERIENCE WITH NEW FEATURE UPDATES
Alpharetta, GA, October 10, 2017 — Aptean, a leading global provider
of mission critical enterprise software solutions, has released version 7.1.4
of its Process ERP solution, which offers improved mobility and operational
efficiency through the system’s upgraded capabilities.
Updates and comprehensive
enhancements in the new Process ERP version include the Ross Inventory Manager
(RIM), Ross Production Manager (RPM) and Ship & Track service extension.
Mobility has become a
requirement for manufacturers to
remain competitive, and the demand for device-independent applications is
high. The ability to access critical information from any device, anywhere,
increases efficiency, reduces information errors and eliminates paperwork while
providing real-time visibility into the workings of the shop floor. Organizations
are now able to operate more effectively and focus on staying at the forefront
of their industry.
“In a complex manufacturing environment like O-AT-KA,
we need to deliver device-agnostic mobile options to our workforce, in order to
support our vision of ‘anywhere productivity’,” said Kelly Finch, Director of Technology,
O-AT-KA Milk Products Coop. Inc. “RIM and RPM support this vision of seamlessly
and securely connecting users and technology.”
“As our Warehouse Operation continues to evolve, we
have moved from handheld scanners to fork truck-mounted tablets, so RIM was not
only a choice, but a requirement to support this evolution,” Finch said. “RPM
filled a gap between the overall high-level plant view across multiple lines
and the very specific user view at the Operator level, providing our Operations
Team real-time visibility of manufacturing jobs and the ability to record
activities anywhere in the O-AT-KA operations facility.”
The Process ERP feature updates cover overall improvements
to functionality of the ERP system, as well as enhanced inventory management
and shipping capabilities.
7.1.4 is packed with more than 40 new features that were created to improve the
look and functionality of the solution. This system update includes a new user
interface (UI) and improved content for a wide range of categories, including
inventory and data collection, sales and promotions and manufacturing and
Inventory Manager (RIM), built on HTML5 standards, was designed to increase
mobility by enabling data collection on any device of choice, which allows
customers to capitalize on new technology without having to replace all mobile
scanners. The new features of RIM create a more seamless user experience with
enhanced menu capabilities and real-time access to inventory information.
Production Manager (RPM) allows production management to view the status and
performance of all jobs on a mobile device from anywhere users have network
Track capabilities provide unified integration of Ross ERP with FedEx Ship
Manager to ensure fewer shipping issues and accurate information flow. The
browser-based interface has centralized installation and works directly with
the Event Management Framework (EMF) database to update all shipping
information throughout an organization. The integration of these two systems
improves traceability of data, saves time and reduces errors.
Coming soon will be the ability to deploy Process ERP on a zero footprint browser. This
functionality offers a new HTML5 interface and allows users to launch the
application through the browser of their choice.
“Business is constantly evolving,
and Aptean remains agile to adapt to change so that we can help our customers
face every challenge. We collaborate with our customers to find ways to improve
our products, processes and services,” said Jill Smith, senior director, Process
ERP. “As Aptean’s Ross ERP celebrates
