Norfolk-based software company Softrader have released their first fully browser based ERP system designed for suppliers of industrial equipment to the oil and gas and related industries. Softrader Cloud handles all the major tasks in a company’s workflow from enquiry to invoicing; including enquiry and order entry, purchasing, stock control, document creation and storage etc.
Softrader have provided ERP software focused at valve and pipe traders for more than 25 years, and the company aims to provide all the benefits of cloud based computing to their clients with this new system.
First and foremost, this includes all the functionality of their previous systems, designed with their wealth of knowledge in industrial supply.
"Few advances in software for business in recent years have been as significant as the move toward browser based systems," says Softrader Managing Director Jono Slack. "One of the biggest advantages of these systems is that all data is hosted in the cloud, not only is it easily accessible securely from any computer or mobile device with an internet connection. IT costs can be kept to a minimum with no need for in house servers."
Clients can raise and lower their user numbers with no fuss depending on their requirements thanks to a quarterly billing model based on a monthly fee per user. By using this pricing model, Softrader have also managed to provide a world class system with much lower starting costs, especially for those who require little data transfer from an old system. In these cases, the software can also be implemented very quickly.
"Softrader Cloud has proved both cost effective to implement and easy scale as our business grows." Mike Wainwright, Ascendant Technologies.
The biggest drawback to other cloud based ERP systems is often reported to be substandard support. All Softrader systems, however, benefit from their outstanding support package included in the price. Telephone lines open from 8.00 am to 6.00 pm GMT weekdays and out of hours’ support is available for emergencies. An initial response to support tickets averages just 10 min., with an average resolution time of just 1 hr.
