Nexgen Releases Efficient Replacement for ORD700/500 OB0020

(Naperville IL USA) Over half of all customer service problems are the result of errors introduced during order creation. One-size-fits-all-ERP has spawned unwieldy and over-engineered systems. No wonder most customer service professionals blame green screen clutter inefficient layout and awkward screen flow encountered during order entry as the real culprit. Nexgen has solved this problem with a highly configurable browser-based order entry solution that replaces BPCS® ORD700/ORD500 and PRMS OB0020.

An Elegant Solution to a Universal Problem "Most ERP vendors' code suffers from the same problem - modification after change after enhancement to support new business requirements for an industry segment that may have nothing to do with your business " said Roger Jarman Nexgen Product Manager. "NexgenCSR™ was developed as part of the NexgenCommerce™ product suite to simplify the ordering process. Because it's configurable the result is an optimized interface tailored to meet a customer's particular needs. Not a watered-down version of BPCS but a comprehensive solution that is easy to acquire easy to install easy to support and easy to use." Other options that address this problem are nothing more than screen-scrapers that do little or nothing to simplify and improve a customer's business process. "Instead we have focused our attention specifically on streamlining the CSR's job " said Jarman. Limiting the number of entry fields allows for more accurate information and less chance for human error. Flexible configurable screen navigation leads to less confusion when moving between different screens and different programs. Jarman concluded "Now orders can be entered more quickly efficiently and with less error.' "For our business the standard order flow in base BPCS is extremely awkward " said Wayne Bruning Vice President of Information Technology at The Lucks Company of Seattle WA and a NexgenCSR customer. "I was particularly interested in an interface that allowed us to minimize the steps required to place an order and to eliminate those steps that were unnecessary. With NexgenCSR I found a cost-effective solution with excellent response time and an intuitive interface that has made our CSR's more efficient." Currently implementing integrated credit card processing Bruning goes on to say "Any customer that has some significant credit card volume will want to do will make a huge difference in their life." Jarman further states "Providing your customer service representatives with a tool that allows them to be more efficient and effective can provide rapid payback. By speeding up the ordering process CSR's can now spend more time on customer satisfaction which in turn can lead to more sales." "Working with Nexgen has been a really nice experience " concluded Bruning.
