FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Oct. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- The benefits of defining and implementing standardized purchasing practices is often overlooked by small and large companies alike.
"There's still a huge open plain upstream in businesses' supply chains," says e-BizSoft CEO Arif Ahmed, whose company owns and operates TRxLink(TM) (pronounced "transaction link"), a Web-based hosted online requisitioning software service that works with several financial applications including Microsoft(R) Dynamics, Intuit(R) QuickBooks and Sage MAS.
"All businesses focus first -- and often continuously -- at building and strengthening their customer facing processes and systems, at times neglecting back office processes vital to their success," says Ahmed. "Back office systems and particularly requisitioning & purchasing processes are usually an afterthought until businesses suddenly find themselves overwhelmed into finding a solution to manage their supply chains. This is all the more true of businesses where the customer component is viewed as the priority, followed by some financial application to keep the back office running, but little else in the way of supply chain automation," explains Ahmed.
"We designed TRxLink(TM) keeping in mind the priorities of small and medium-sized businesses," continues Ahmed. The TRxLink(TM) website (http://www.trxlink.com) touts functionality covering several areas of the purchasing supply chain spectrum, including the ability to create requisitions and purchase orders, receive against purchase orders, process quotations, sales orders and invoices, as well as portals for vendors and customers to exchange business transactions with your business.
"The wide-spanning functionality is just part of the value," adds Sarah Levy, one of e-BizSoft's customer managers. "Customers in our target market are very conscientious about their budgets and want to avoid solutions with complicated setups and big financial footprints. TRxLink(TM) is easy to setup and requires no capital investment to get up and running with. It is a hosted service that lets you pay as you go, without contracts to hold you captive."
What about the business data?
"We don't own or manage your data," says Ahmed. "We install a small software component, which we call a service agent, on a computer system where you tell us to, that connects with your financial application. TRxLink(TM) reads the data, provides the value-added functionality, then writes the resulting data right back into your financial application. It quietly plugs in. It isn't invasive; it's not a parasitic solution that latches onto your business then becomes part of it."
So how do customers feel about it?
"TRxLink(TM) is an easy to implement yet powerful solution that has significantly reduced our requisition approval cycle time, provided accountability throughout the process, and provided a solution for Sarbanes Oxley compliance." -Sean O'Brien | Purchasing Manager - Casino Aztar Evansville.
