Express Data has improved the functionality of its website by moving the accounts module to .Net. The upgrade is the first step of a project to transfer all of the distributor's system to .Net, where Web tools are easier to create and support.
The benefits of changing the accounts module include real-time access to statements and invoices through Express Data's MasterPack ERP system, a credit gauge and additional search functionality.
"We are trying to change the way our customers engage with us by making all this information real-time," Express Data sales director, Ian Jansen, said. "Let's say a reseller has put through a licensing order and forgotten to specify who the customer is. They can instantly see that this information is outstanding and update the order.
"In a volume environment, a fair amount of time is spent administrating this stuff. We want to simplify those interactions."
