Wed
Wednesdays with William – Payroll Year-End for Sage 300
Nov 22 @ 9:00 am – 10:00 am
Learn how Sage Alerts and Workflow can monitor all your business data – both within your Sage product lines and beyond. Sage Alerts and Workflow identifies and responds to conditions that fall outside of an organization’s standard operating procedures.

 

Ask yourself:

  • Do you spend time running reports or using analytical tools to look for “exceptions” in your daily transactions?
  • Do you need to identify and reach out to your customers who have not ordered in the last six months?
  • Do you need to be notified when orders and/or customers are on hold?
  • Do you need to be aware when the stock is or at near re-order level?
  • Does your organization have mobile or remote staff that need to be informed regardless of time, location, or communication device?
  • Would it be useful to have a single solution that could monitor and respond to conditions in all your business applications?

If you have answered ‘Yes’ to any of the questions above, join our webcast to learn how this solution uniquely combines baseline strength data analysis with alerts, automatic document, and report distribution, and workflow capabilities.
