CDC Software Launches Ross 7.0, Its Next Generation Suite of ERP Applications
ATLANTA --(Business Wire)--
CDC Software (News - Alert), an enterprise software provider of on-premise and cloud
technologies, today announced the general availability of Ross
ERP 7.0, the major release of its next generation of ERP applications
offering improved interoperability, increased collaborative
capabilities, enhanced usability, new mobility features and more
advanced traceability that can lead to higher productivity, faster
decision-making, and reduced costs and risk - all with a low total cost
Ross ERP 7.0 takes ERP to the next level in enterprise visibility,
collaboration, reporting, mobility and social manufacturing with new
functionality featured in Enterprise Viewer, Document Connect, Event
Management Framework, and Ross Mobile 2.0. Advanced collaborative
techniques found in Facebook (News - Alert) and Google were incorporated into Ross
Enterprise Viewer and EMF. For example, utilizing "Subscribe and Follow"
techniques, Enterprise Viewer allows sales reps to subscribe to a sales
"widget" then follow the sales of their own customers on their
dashboards. As another example, EMF delivers real-time alerts to the
sales rep whenever one of their customers exceeds certain credit limits.
Continuing Ross' focus on vertical-industry needs for the process
manufacturer, Ross 7.0 offers deeper functionality in traceability,
pricing, product costing and quality control.
We are very excited to launch our next generation of Ross Enterprise
that was designed in partnership with our customers and various industry
associations," said Sherri Rodriguez, president of Ross Systems, a
business unit of CDC Software. "Ross ERP 7.0 takes an intuitive, social
networking, collaborative and proactive approach to information
management that can transform a process manufacturer into an agile
business with broad visibility into its operations. Notably, wih the
new, extensive enhancements in the core modules, Ross 7.0 also offers
one of the market's most comprehensive and feature rich quality
management application available today."
Highlights of Ross ERP 7.0:
Enterprise Viewer. This new user interface employs "widgets" to push
relevant, real-time information to users. A "widget" displays specific
information about customers and products, such as "Orders Due To Ship
Today" and "Inventory Availability." After subscribing to a given
"widget," a user can then follow their selected customers or products,
with the ability to execute drill downs and key commands directly from
the widget, helping to increase user productivity and customer service
New Document Connect. This new feature allows users to drag and drop
documents, including videos, directly into Ross ERP screens from their
desktops, then later access these same documents from the screens,
eliminating the need to manually store and retrieve documents on one's
file server. The feature automatically stores and indexes
transactional documents in a preconfigured SharePoint file structure.
Event Management Framework's (EMF) alert engine. This new feature
delivers real-time, actionable alert messages to users' dashboards,
emails and mobile devices. In addition to exception conditions, users
can be alerted to non-events, such as no response to a purchase order
or an overdue delivery.
Ross Mobile 2.0 (News - Alert). This new native mobile application offers access to
customer, sales, inventory and other key enterprise information on
iPhone and Android devices, helping to expedite one's decision-making
and improving customer service.
Enhanced TraceExpress. New enhancements included in Ross ERP 7.0
reduce the number of product trace paths and allow users to review the
details of a Lot Trace within a certain Date Range, helping to
expedite product recall notifications and facilitate compliance even
Ross Reporting Services. Based upon Microsoft's (News - Alert) SQL Server Reporting
Services, this new feature offers embedded graphical objects and
transactional links within its report templates to generate
interactive reports in a variety of formats across the ERP modules.
