Key Strengths of EFACS E/8

Highly Flexible:

EFACS E/8 is a powerful and modern business solution that is built using the latest internet technology. It has a component structure, enabling an economic and precise fit to the most demanding of business requirements. The tabbed browser interface uses the latest AJAX (Asynchronous JavaScript and XML) technologies to provide a smooth and fast user interface which operates on a wide range of servers, operating systems and leading databases.

 

Fit to your Business:

Companies require that their IT systems are both comprehensive and can be adjusted at relatively low cost to fit their precise needs. This is not only in the case of initial implementation but also in the longer term, as business circumstances and needs will vary over time. The IT systems should be adaptable to fit changing circumstances, without incurring significant cost for the company. Due to the Variable Component Architecture and Customisation Toolkit that is found within EFACS E/8, the software can be easily adapted to fit your exact requirements.

 

IT Integration:

Companies may choose between competing IT strategies: integrated solutions, or “best-of-breed”solutions. Best-of-breed solutions require integration between different software products, and the component parts of the combined systems will inevitably have varying characteristics. There may also be issues connected with new releases of different products. An integrated solution is preferable, as it delivers seamless operation to the end-user. With EFACS E/8 ERP software, you get a fully integrated solution, covering the widest possible range of business functions.
