OrderMaster Pocket PC
OrderMaster, in partnership with Broadway Technologies, has developed
a new order taking system for the Pocket PC. The new system, provided
on easy to read full color screens, provides such features as component
pricing, taking multiple orders for the same customer simultaneously,
and storing as many orders as you need to on your handheld device
before you sync them to the desktop/notebook OrderMaster software.
This last feature is particularly convenient for reps wanting to
use the software on the road.
Under "Old" Management
Steve Cunningham, OrderMaster’s founder and creator, has
reassumed executive management, including support, for SFA Technologies’ line
of OrderMaster products. Steve has initiated an aggressive program
to reassert top notch customer support, and to add features and
services to OrderMaster that will insure this product defines the
state of the art in sales force automation.
Steve, who created
the OrderMaster concept and software several years ago, returned
as President effective January 1, 2004 with a directive to create
a five star support and communication path for OrderMaster Customers,
and to drive forward OrderMaster's utility for its users with new
technology, and useful strategic partnerships.
SFA Technologies has established a partnership with Broadway Technologies
to bring you three important new services :
an internet transfer system to let you send
orders from field or showroom back to your office. With this
service, you don’t
have to read and key in orders from faxes, or use inconvenient
file transfer software. It’s fast, accurate, and gives
you online status and order reporting.
Your reps simply log on to your internet transfer site, and it
find the correct files for the to upload, gives them instructions
on how to upload them, saves information for management reports,
and prepares the order information to be downloaded by the home
office at any time.
It also let the home office upload new product and price databases
at any time, and informs reps, when they log on, if they need to
download the latest database.
This is a dynamite
tool that every OrderMaster user with more than a one man shop
should take immediate advantage of. It eliminates
delays and mistakes, and keeps your latest products and prices
up to the minute in the field.
