Additional applications are quickly set up.
Using the advantages of eBusines
Companies that are already using abas ERP as well as users of other ERP systems can benefit from the advantages of the eBusiness solution: abas eB offers a completely integrated ERP system in which the application logic is realized with database, a full function range and efficient interfaces for connecting external systems. The data maintenance of the information provided on the Internet, e.g. the customer or product data in a Webshop, is easy and comfortable. Business partners can be connected via abas eB; it is also possible to make data from external applications, such as CAD, CAQ, CRM or archiving systems available on the Internet. The information and service range can be extended by using Web services. Moreover, the eBusiness software contains extensive tools using which adaptations can be carried out fast and easily so that project costs can be decreased. The use of modern Java technology makes it possible to run abas eB on all current Linux platforms and Windows XP. The Web solution is scalable and even if demand is increasing and more access takes place, stability can be maintained and the response time stays in a reasonable range. All abas eB applications can be created and operated multilingual - at present more than 25 languages are available. abas eB grows with the customer's demands and always remains upgradeable.
ERP functions expanded
At SYSTEMS, ABAS will present Version 2005 of abas Business Software (ERP, PPC, MRP, eBusiness). The current version contains many innovations and enhancements. One of the new functions is for example the subcontracting (external processing) using which the jobs which are accrued in production from the semifinished products and possibly the products supplied by subcontractors, are managed. The requirements determination of products to be procured (all procurement types) has been structured in more detail. In the production area there are various new comfortable infosystems - there is for example a new command center for work order suggestions which facilitates the management of work order suggestions. Version 2005 also contains new functions, messages and infosystems in the Electronic Data Interchange (EDI)/Automotive area. The integrated financial accounting provides numerous expansions such as for cash book, foreign payment transactions, balance sheet and G/L creation, check processing, currency-specific roundings, tax codes and sets of books. There are also innovations in the function areas cost accounting, material valuation, purchasing and sales, administration, interfaces, database as well as the graphical user interface (GUI) and print.
Since medium-sized businesses are more and more integrated in world-wide operating corporate networks they need an internationally tailored software. abas Business Software is multilingual, in the user menu as well as in the display language. The users can work with the same data set in different operating languages. Thus, the cooperation with foreign subsidiaries is made easier. At present, abas Business Software is available in over 25 languages. ABAS is represented internationally by over 40 partners worldwide.
From medium-sized businesses for medium-sized businesses
Medium-sized businesses are supporting the economy. These businesses need tried and tested products, a partner who is able to solve their requirements and that, if possible, within a few weeks and with a perfect price/performance relation. Expertise, such as comprehensive business knowledge, reference projects and many years of experience when dealing with medium-sized businesses as well as the service and support quality, the ROI, the continuing personal cooperation and the guaranteed future of the IT provider are of importance.
