Macola 10.5 New Features and Benefits
With Macola 10.5, a tablet-led approach refreshes its user interface while offering a stronger experience on tablets—in addition to the desktop. Now, Macola 10.5’s responsive design automatically adjusts to format for the best user experience on whatever device is being used. Mission-critical business and operational data can now be accessed on the fly on mobile devices by users, synchronizing in Macola 10 in real-time. This especially benefits order processing and inventory management, giving the user a holistic view of the operation and inventory levels, from anywhere and on any device.
Macola 10.5 also enables the user with new functionality, helping them to become more efficient, accomplishing more in less time—many times within a single screen. This includes new search functionalities like type-ahead search that reduces manual data entry, infinite scrolling and sortable table columns.
“In any given day, our customers may be on the shop or warehouse floor managing operations, out of the office visiting customers or suppliers, or sourcing new materials. The latest update to our ERP and business software is focused on empowering users to more efficiently and seamlessly access the information they need to do their jobs, wherever they are at the time,” said Derek Ochs, director of development, Exact, Macola division. “With Macola 10.5, we are matching our software to the way our customers do their jobs. In the end, if Macola is truly doing its own job, the user hardly knows the software is there.”
