four new industry-specific features

CEDAR FALLS, IA April 29, 2014 ASI Computer Systems, Inc.® today announced ASI SmartBooks® now features a complete e-commerce package, allowing distributors to host an unlimited number of Web stores with real-time inventory counts and shipping rates along with integrated checkout options.

The new e-commerce package includes unlimited stores with no per-store cost and eliminates the need to re-key e-commerce orders into an accounting/order management system. Plus, real-time shipping rates can now be calculated with UPS, FedEx and the U.S. Postal Service. Simply utilize the meter computer in the office to calculate rates and apply them to the order. Cost and tracking info is immediately sent to ASI SmartBooks for better order management.

ASI SmartBooks enables distributors to manage entire front-office and back-office functions with a single, flexible, powerful application – integrating accounting, sales, marketing, order entry, inventory, purchasing, shipping, reporting and product sourcing from ESP® into one application.

The latest upgrade to ASI SmartBooks also includes four new, industry-specific features:

  • Custom user-defined order tracking. Create custom order tracking activities and processes for easier order management. View, update and manage orders on one dynamic order management screen.
  • Easier commission tallies. Automatically calculate commissions on gross profit, YTD invoiced sales on a sliding scale or base percentage amount.
  • Enhanced user security. Manage shared information like customer lists, orders, quotes and invoices by salesperson. Users can be limited to view only records to which they are assigned.
  • Advanced inventory/fulfillment order capability. Quickly identify customer contracts for fulfilling orders under special pricing conditions.

“The new e-commerce package and latest feature upgrades allow distributors to work smarter and faster using a few clicks on the keyboard instead of getting bogged down in time-consuming paperwork,” said Timothy M. Andrews, vice chairman of ASI Computer Systems, Inc. and president and chief executive officer of ASI. “ASI SmartBooks is now even more flexible and customizable than ever before, allowing businesses to track every dime going in and out, from orders to commissions.”

ASI SmartBooks has been designed on a state-of-the-art-technology platform using the latest version of the most powerful database available, Microsoft’s SQL server. Further, the software is fully ESP-enabled, with the best product sourcing database in the industry built right in, eliminating the need to switch between programs and providing instant access to the exact screens, robust functionality and access to every available promotional product from over 3,200 suppliers.
