Features and Benefits
Many organisations have a multitude of disparate systems which do not talk to each other. BME is designed to encompass these entities to ensure there is little double entry of data, enabling maximum efficiency for the execution of your business processes.
BME manages your CRM requirements, in addition to the sales and supply chain. Your inventory can be comprehensively controlled, including the manufacturing process and purchasing requirement for replenishment. Storage locations and logistics are catered for in conjunction with a warehouse management module. BME is one of the most complete business management solutions on the market and includes many features considered as cost options in other vendor solutions.
Project management, helpdesk, jobs, contract and asset management, are part of the product. In addition, HR, graphical scheduling for resources (including staff, vehicles, and any other entity) plus support for multi-company, multi-division and multiple departments are included.
Financially, BME provides top down reporting by Company (Multi-Company version) Division and Department, along with multi-currency support for both sales and purchase.
Document management is a powerful feature available in most areas of the system. Documents of any type can be stored and managed by their version. Once a document is uploaded, it cannot be changed. Any changes need to be saved as a new version. All these changes are tracked, giving you a comprehensive library of changes and additions.
All user activity including data changes are audited in the area the changes are made, and globally within the system audit trail. The Audit trail can be searched, filtered and sorted.
BME also has a QA (Quality Assurance) module, where Non-Conformance Reports (NCRs) can be raised.
These features are particularly relevant if you are currently, or planning to be, ISO-9000 certified.
Furthermore, BME can be fully customized (not just “configured” in a different way, like many other systems). We can customise any area of BME, or create additional features, to meet your unique requirements.
As the system has been written from the ground up by Computech Software, using open source environments, we are not beholden to other organisations for licensing and we are not confined by the limitations imposed by other vendors.
Work in the most efficient way for your enterprise and do not compromise.
