The good news is that SAP Business One’s Sales Analysis capabilities enabled us to evaluate the results of that campaign and then make adjustments for future promotions. Specifically, we can check the number of transactions, discount levels and net gain or loss per promotion and per location. We have to be very careful with how we spend our precious marketing dollars and the new system gives us the tools to optimize our investment in that area.

FEATURES: SOFTENGINE WAREHOUSE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM +
- Receiving of goods inwards.
Using the handheld device a user can see what documents are due to arrive, record good receipts in SAP Business One from these base documents, and print barcode labels recording box quantities, lot numbers, and expiration dates to affix to items in real time. Users can also print quality control documentation directly from the device.
- Putting away inventory into warehouse locations.
Using inventory and bin location barcodes a user can quickly scan inventory units from the receiving location to the destination bin location in real time aiding in the putting away of received goods.
- Transferring inventory to staging areas for quality control, packaging, or production.
Using inventory and bin location barcodes a user can quickly scan inventory units from location to location in real time.
- Picking and packing inventory.
Easily delegate pick lists and allow the picking team to scan quantities into packages ready for dispatch or into staging areas for production. Softengine mobile presents to the user which bin location the item is located, the designated batch number assigned to the order, and the quantities required. A “To Pick” counter decrements every time the inventory unit is scanned reducing human error and helping to ensure the correct batch is picked reducing expiration date errors.
- Shipments of goods outwards.
Using the handheld device a user can process shipping documents directly from a sales document, or a pick list. Again, a user can pack goods into packages in a similar way to the picking and packing feature and print the bill of lading, all directly from the device.
- Issuing raw materials to a production process.
Goods can easily be scanned and issued into a production process, recording the batch number of raw ingredients for traceability.
- Maintaining receipts of produced items from the production process.
Similar to the receiving of good inwards process a user can issue production receipts directly from the handheld device. Barcode labels can be printed in real time recording box quantities, lot numbers, and expiration dates to affix to newly produced items. Aiding in the storage, tracking, and retrieval of produced inventory items.

What our customers say
Denise Ost, Chief Operating Officer, Goodwill Industries, San Joaquin Valley
Jason Dugan, CFO, Trudeau Distributing Company
Softengine has been a key contributor to our rollout of SAP Business One. The company’s consultants were excellent and helped ensure that we had a successful implementation.
Leonard Kang, Operations Manager, Christopher Lena
We decided to find a partner we could put our trust in. Softengine is very experienced and systemized in its approach. We were very confident we’d made the right choice. Small businesses might be intimidated by SAP software. What they don’t realize is that SAP offers solutions designed specifically for small to midsize companies like ours.
Ray Lacorte, VP of Operations, Choice Organic Teas
We feel like we are in great hands with Softengine and the SAP Business One system they installed. It’s nice to finally put all those unreliable ERP systems and redundant procedures in the rear-view mirror.
Justin Ku, Administration & Operations Coordinator, Swabplus
The Softengine team was able to tailor SAP Business One to deliver all the traceability Swabplus needed, including all the applicable reports. Softengine enhanced the core system to enable creation of new batch numbers if components don’t already have them and the option of batch-costing. They also added fields for escalation dates, expiration dates and additional inspection data (e.g., who inspected and when), which could be incorporated into each Certificate of Analysis.
Virginia J. Gregorian, COO, Turbo Wholesale Tires
Our experience with Softengine has been extremely positive. Any time we call for assistance, they always assign someone who’s highly professional and gets the job done quickly. Interestingly enough, I’ve become so much more educated about IT-related matters since working with the Softengine team on this project. Every time we need to upgrade the system, they walk me though all the steps to make sure that I completely understand what’s happening, which contributes to the overall success of the upgrade. It’s been a pleasure to work with them.
