Hundreds of new API functions for systems integrators ensure visibility of real-time data and control of enterprise processes through third-party apps. “At a glance” status indicators instantly show customer service personnel the status of orders. A simplified “features and options” configurator is designed to help users get orders into the system faster. Customers who use multiple divisions can toggle between divisions without disrupting their workflow. Simplified credit memo quoting and creation is designed to better accommodate the way people do their jobs, further streamlining processes such as order entry, billing selection, and order search and filtering.
