Sage Alerts & Workflow: Automation That’s About Time

Think about your ERP and related applications – vast storehouses of customer, supply chain, and financial data. And yet – when it comes to acting on that data – identifying who needs to know what, who needs to do what, and how soon it needs to be done... it all comes down to time:

  • The time it takes for your staff to identify and act on critical business data
  • The timeliness in which that data is acted on

Time is one resource that no business has enough of; timeliness is one trait that no successful business can do without.

Learn how KnowledgeSync saves time by automating tasks that are otherwise done manually, and then learn how KnowledgeSync ensures timeliness by delivering the right information to the right people at the right time.
