Be Proactive with Sage Alerts and Workflow

3 Ways Sage Alerts and Workflow Boosts Productivity

How many headaches could you save if you knew about something happening in the business in time for you to respond? All the financial and operational data is a tremendous source of critical information that you could act upon if you just knew it was happening. Take a look at three examples of how companies that use Sage Alerts and Workflow have saved time and costly headaches.

1. Proactive Notifications in Real-Time

Instead of devoting people's time to manually monitoring systems, tools such as Sage Alerts and Workflow utilize data mining to analyze your entire database. This automated data mining can send an alert or execute the next step in the workflow when certain conditions are met.

For example, your finance teams can set an alert and workflow when the system detects a client has overdue invoices. Via easy-to-configure workflows, the system will flip a switch in the database, placing that customer on credit hold.

Another way to save time and prevent costly headaches is by utilizing an alert and workflow that triggers when an item drops to within 10 of its reorder level. The system will create a purchase order and send it to your supplier, as well as notify your team that this took place via email or text.

Sales will enjoy the alert they can set up to advise them that a frequent buyer has not made a new purchase in 30 days. They can also be notified when an order ship or requires approval.

2. Alerts Across Connected Systems

While most business applications offer some type of alerting in their solutions, Sage Alerts and Workflow enable capabilities that are far more advanced. In most cases, your company has most likely integrated your Sage ERP with many or all of your supporting systems for manufacturing, payroll, and HRMS for example.

Sage Alerts has the capability to even look at the data in your connected systems via APIs. You can pull information from your connected apps as well as write information in those connected systems via APIs, making it easier to configure.

3. Built-In, Pre-defined Events and Triggers

Getting started is easy because Sage Alerts and Workflows include 80 pre-defined events and triggers. According to experts such as the folks at Vrakas Blum, it’s best not to set up too many notifications all at once so that you don’t inundate and overwhelm your teams in emails.

Our team at Vrakas Blum can configure your Sage solution to pull data from multiple different databases. Then, you can simultaneously compare them, add and change data within those other databases, ultimately giving you a single holistic view of your business just from your dashboard.
