Wally Tonra

New Features in the Desktop Client for Job-oriented Manufacturers
Wally Tonra, xTuple Vice President of Sales
 
The xTuple ERP Manufacturing Edition has always had the flexibility to work well in a 'Job-oriented' environment. In a shop where the Bills of Material are rarely the same, or at least constantly changing, the Editing features in Work Orders always allowed for Editing. Now that same Editing can be done within the Sales Order Entry. In this session, we review the different ways users can now Configure to Order Items, Edit Items, Edit the Work Order, and even create new items. All from inside Sales Order Entry! If some or all of your business is 'Jobby' in nature, come see all of the features (some new and some hidden gems) that can help you get the order right, in Sales, so it's ready to go by the time it hits the shop floor!

Here's How We Use It: Lessons from xTuple's CRM Dynamic Duo
Cam Hagan & Joe Hill, xTuple HQ Sales Team
 
We are all busy and looking for tools to simplify our lives. At xTuple we don't simply use basic 'customer relationship management' – our CRM is Corporate Relationship Management, and it helps us manage and improve the ways we interact with customers, prospects, vendors, partners and other corporate entities with which we share a business relationship. As xTuple's inside sales team, we use our CRM daily and find it to be versatile and comprehensive. In this session, we demonstrate how we use xTuple CRM, from both our desks and via mobile device to access vital information from anywhere, and show you ways to capture business growth opportunities.
