Australian technology company, Pronto Software has announced a major update to its flagship business management software, Pronto Xi. The new release, Pronto Xi 720 is designed to help businesses adapt to today’s increasingly global marketplaces and transform operations.

Representing the company’s first transition into a one-year release cycle, Pronto Xi 720 combines smart Enterprise Resource Planning software with innovative data analytics, Business Intelligence and intuitive mobile functionality, enabling mid-market organisations to better manage data, gain deeper insight into business operations and embrace mobility.

Pronto Software Managing Director David Jackman explains that the enhancements are based on feedback from Pronto Xi’s actual users representing sectors as diverse as retail, mining, manufacturing, facilities management, supply chain and distribution. Pronto Xi 720 empowers all members of a business by providing the information they need to work smarter regardless of the location, from the office or shop floor to the factory, warehouse, or on the road.

According to Mr Jackman, the latest release of the business management software not only features significant updates to the capabilities of the modules to cater to the changing needs of each industry, but also improved analytics technology to better enable businesses to analyse every aspect of their business, so teams can work smarter and more efficiently.

Key improvements in Pronto Software include providing greater flexibility and control to its financial systems as well as more intuitive budgeting capabilities, enabling finance teams to efficiently manage assets; strengthening the management of their customer relationships for the benefit of sales and marketing departments with Pronto Xi CRM able to synchronise seamlessly with third party mail servers; improved integration of warehouse management and shipment modules enabling greater efficiency with store allocations for companies that specialise in distribution and supply chain driven operations; and inventory enhancements giving companies the flexibility to manage stock through a variety of processes within the entire operation.

New tools in Pronto Xi 720 specifically designed for asset and facility management organisations include consolidation of preventative maintenance and improvements to overall workflow, from the back office to field service engineers; a cost breakdown module, allowing for a greater level of costing granularity and margin management, also enhancing automation of tedious project quotation and cost tracking jobs; and additions to the sales configurator system helping manufacturers as well as shop floor staff gain greater visibility into work orders, enabling increased productivity throughout the production process.

With the release of Pronto Xi 720, the suite of Business Intelligence modules is now available as an application on Android devices in addition to iOS, enabling instant access to real-time business reporting and analytics.

Pronto Xi Connect now provides new Service, Fixed Asset, Inventory and CRM APIs, and full LDAP Support for easy integration to custom or third party service-oriented applications.

Given that organisations are looking to IT solutions to deliver competitive advantage and stay ahead of the curve, the latest release of Pronto Xi supports and empowers businesses by bringing together the best of ERP, mobile and BI technologies in a fully integrated solution.

Pronto is proud to support many mid-market and enterprise businesses including Natures Organics, Leica Camera Australia, Greyhound, Mayo Group, Gasweld, Bondor, The Co-op, Hirotec and Wallace Bishop.
