Global Shop Solutions offers more than 1,000 free, downloadable, custom applications for use with its ERP software products. These apps, available on the company’s website, enable system users to adapt the software to their unique shopfloor requirements to further enhance their ability to cut costs and streamline operations. According to the company, the apps are custom programs written for specific users which it has made available to all its customers.
Users can log in to the company’s Application and Reporting Center (ARC) Store to search for apps by name or by module, and then download them. Apps range from a simple GAB script enabling automatic email invoicing to more sophisticated “dashboard” apps that combine the functionality of five or six regular menu items into one for faster data access. One popular download is the “certs app,” which automatically packages up all required material certifications for each product shipment.
