Jeeves ERP for Wholesale, Distribution and Retail
Jeeves ERP for Manufacturing
Syncing multiple companies and sites across multiple geographies to custom process workflows is either expensive or impossible with most ERP software. Growing and changing manufacturers need an ERP system that will allow them to automate and streamline their unique way of competing in an increasingly complex world. They need an ERP system that was built from the ground up around the idea that all businesses are different, and continuously change over time. They need Jeeves ERP.
Jeeves is Next-Gen Cloud ERP
ERP software products don't have to be a commodity, forcing companies to become more and more alike. At Jeeves, we believe software can be a differentiator, helping businesses exploit the unique processes and workflows that have been a part of their competitive advantage from the start. Bottom line, the standard we have for our software products is fit—either right out of the box or shortly thereafter via powerful configuration and customization tools.
Enterprise Features for Global Scalability
Multi-Company, Multi-Language, Multi-Currency
Jeeves ERP was built for enterprises that are managing multiple sites or companies across multiple geographies operating in different languages and currencies. It even handles multi-site customers and suppliers. Regardless of the complexity of your business, Jeeves ERP can be easily configured to support it.
The Jeeves financial management features can reflect the balance sheets of individual companies, as well as a consolidated corporate view. The system has built-in tools to help you manage multiple currencies, exchange schedules, and currency fluctuations. Jeeves ERP also delivers localizations for more than 20 countries, including built-in processes that abide by local regulatory requirements, as well as other convenient localizations, such as invoice reference numbers and international banking validations.
Other features like Intercompany Transactions and Master Data Management, described below, ensure that data flowing from company to company is accurate and consistent.
The Jeeves Inter-Company Transactions (ITC) application makes it possible for businesses with complex, geographically dispersed structures to operate as a single entity when working directly with customers. The tool is well suited for companies with one or more distribution centers, manufacturing units, or even remote sales offices. Because Jeeves ICT coordinates the logistical operations across many organizations, including order details, financial transactions, and general inventory flow, the application delivers a significant return on investment, including reduced inventory costs, dramatically shortened lead times, and improved customer service.
Jeeves ICT provides a completely transparent view across all of your companies, allowing users to see item balance information at all supply sites, as well as the demands placed upon them by a selling site. The information exchange in the order process across your companies is fully automated, both for customer and inventory orders. If any order details change, such as the selling company, order quantity, or price, Jeeves ICT will instantly update the order detail for the supplying company. It is also possible for the supplying company to make changes that will affect the selling company.
Master Data Management
The amount of data a typical organization produces continues to grow, in part due to increased complexity and geographic diversity. With data everywhere, organizations often struggle to establish and maintain data integrity and consistency across the organization and supply chain. Jeeves Master Data Management allows you to centrally create and manage data, as well as define rules for data entry, modification, replication, deletion, and conversion across multiple business units.
Some of your data may be common across all your companies, but maybe only your selling companies have the right to update that data. Or, perhaps some of your data needs to be converted as it moves from company to company. For example, an item may have the acquisition method “Manufacture to Requirement” at the delivering company, but “Purchase to Requirement” at the selling company. Regardless of the number of complexities you need to address, Jeeves Master Data Management was designed to facilitate data integrity across your business.
Companies like yours must create, update, and maintain all kinds of documents and unstructured information. Whether its an illustration or a contract, documents need to be housed centrally, with the most current version readily available when it is accessed. Jeeves EDM is for companies that need to manage high volumes of important artifacts within their core business processes.
Jeeves EDM (Electronic Document Management) is a fully integrated document register that gives users access to files stored on a central file server, where you can browse for a desired file, create a new file from a template, or access previous versions of the file. Files are presented to the users “at the time of need,” and in relation to objects, transactions, or activities within the Jeeves ERP system.
Documents can be linked to all relevant business objects in Jeeves ERP, such as customers, items, orders, invoices, operations, projects, and more. Linked files are also available for sharing over the Internet. Jeeves EDM is system-wide, meaning that documents are available from any program. For example, if a saved document relates to an order entry, it is not only linked to that order; it is also automatically linked to the customer.
Jeeves EDM has a customizable interface and handles all windows-compatible file types, including email.
Jeeves Workflow is a workflow management tool that allows you to automate and streamline standardized tasks and business processes, often in accordance with a structured quality system. Using Jeeves Workflow, tasks can be pushed to the right person within the organization at the right time. Processes can be built for sequential and if-then tasks, utilizing integrated data from your core Jeeves ERP system.
Jeeves Workflow creates a priority to-do list for each individual, along with with built-in deadlines for each task. You can automate all or part of the process, and the log function enables you to follow up on the status of a process, or how well it was executed. Jeeves Workflow overcomes the typical problems associated with the timely and proper completion of predefined tasks, as well as streamlines the flow of tasks from resource to resource. With standardized processes, there is less room for error, and a simpler path to training and ramp time for new employees. With reliability in process comes reliability in data, helping your team become more proactive and make better on-the-job decisions.
Jeeves Security Manager helps preserve the integrity and quality of the underlying data in your system and ensures the system optimally supports your core business processes. It keeps your end users focused on doing work in the proper areas of the system, while preventing them from making errors that delete or change data that is critical to your day-to-day decision-making.
Jeeves Security Manager allows permissions to be set using an intuitive, graphical tool. Menu and screen permissions are inherited from modules and their linked objects. These permissions are easily extended or modified, based on modules, routines, programs, reports, or fields, and without making intrusive database changes. All permissions are based on the conventional standard events: create, read, update, delete, and execute. In addition, any custom-built fields or programs can also be controlled by the Jeeves Security Manager.
Quickly Deploy Additive Features
ERP technology has been around for quite some time.
The architectures of many “best practice” systems available today were built decades ago to fit a handful of companies. These systems are often plagued by rigid databases and older technology that are difficult to evolve over time.
More recent architectures tried to resolve this rigidness by building incredibly robust and configurable horizontal systems. However, the cost of the implementation process was extended, in order to sift through the massive code base and turn features on or off.
When multi-tenant SaaS architectures arrived, they addressed the new issues of complexity and cost, but delivered “lowest common denominator systems” for everyone – that were again … difficult to customize.
If you haven’t figured it out by now, Jeeves ERP is different. Unlike most systems, Jeeves ERP is implemented using an additive process, rather than a subtractive one.
When we say additive design, we mean more than how easy the system is to customize and integrate. We mean that it’s easy to change and extend your system with new code. Many of our customers develop their own apps on a regular basis using our Apps Builder Toolkit. Other customers get apps from Jeeves, and simply import them into their code base.
Whether you build it yourself, or Jeeves builds it for you, Jeeves ERP’s additive architecture design separates hard-coded functionality from the core system, making it fast to deploy new features (and easy to upgrade them).
So there you have it. Jeeves ERP makes it far more easy and affordable to reinvent your system. You simply build, import, and go.
