Propella is sold on the basis of user licences, sometimes referred to as 'seats'. You may process accounts for a hundred companies on a single server and you will still just pay for one licence
This is the true test of whether you are using a V8 engine or just a converted motor mower. Try looking at Propella's stock opening to closing balances with full audit between any two dates and then drill down to the detailed transactions. So stock valuations and trial balances can be run for any year and period and reconciled with the private ledger accounts for that period.
We have designed Propella with a no limits philosophy. Why limit pricing to three levels or even ten? Why restrict the size of a product code or the amount of descriptive information you wish to hold? Why not look up your product from as many angles as you want to? It's your business, not ours, so you take charge of the limits!
This is where the clever ground-up design comes in. The only limit is how big your company's hard drive is.
Propella has many EDI functions, API's, and Interfaces that provide easy access to the data for secured parties..
All reports can be exported to all major industry standard formats. For example, you could produce your statement of position report, save it as an Excel spreadsheet and email it to your accountant.
We have also built in exports and imports to suit targeted functions such as supplier pricelists, shipping acknowledgements, pricelist updates, banking and marketing mail-outs.
Connectivity with internet applications and remote order taking via PDA where customer and product databases are exported and sales orders are retrieved.
Stock take is another specialised area of data export/import where scanning devices can collect stock take counts and download these to the Propella stock take system.
We would be silly to answer anything but yes, but here are some examples
Propella not only answers yes to all of these questions and many more, but it does so with a minimal number of keystrokes.
A grunty search engine finds your product easily using the method you preferred last time you searched – it might even be an embedded string of characters out of the product description. The all-seeing stock enquiry tells you what is on hand, allocated, on back-order, on purchase order and when it is due. Drill-downs then take you to every facet of this stock status summary. A single click for the price your customer will pay and another to show the full details of his order.
Propella is an information system which looks after the bean-counting well but more importantly answers the critical management questions also.
A small sample of the way Propella can provide the answers when it counts
Although many standard reports are included, each one contains numerous run-time choices and selection filters. Summary reporting, grouping and sorting and sub-totalling are all under your own control. Then to make things even easier, you can save your favourite selections and use them next time.
The general ledger has its own specialised financial report writer and another report writer is available for general database reporting and exporting such as target marketing.
Not only your product code but any primary code such as your customer or supplier code can be changed and all of your history is instantly re-aligned to the new code.
We like to think that the most important thing you do is take a look at your KPI Dashboard and smile. You are also probably in a remote part of the world at the time so you will be accessing this from your notebook through the Internet.
Since any report can be run at any time, for any period, you do not have to do anything. The data is held in a manner which does not require it to be moved around and re-organised in any way.
