BizSlate is rooted in experience and success. Its founding leaders have a proven track record in delivering Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) technology solutions to the small and medium- sized businesses (SMBs) and the entrepreneurs who lead them.
Further, BizSlate is built on a core principle: the customer has to be involved in the process. The core BizSlate ERP system has been developed, not just with customers in mind, but with customers giving active input, guidance and feedback. Early in the development process, Marc Kalman, BizSlate’s founder and CEO, brought together an advisory group of SMB leaders and asked them a key question: “ What do you need from an ERP system?” Their initial answers – and their ongoing collaboration and input – became the foundation of BizSlate. By coupling a vision of the marketplace with solid data on customer needs and pain points, BizSlate launches with a SaaS application that is ready to lessen those pain points and bring that vision to life.
ERP companies currently in the market are generally geared for large enterprises with large budgets and are often far too expensive for SMBs. ERPs that are more affordable generally lack the functionality that SMBs need in order to survive. BizSlate fills the market’s need for a fresh, new solution.
BizSlate incorporates proprietary features and functionality not usually found in other ERPs, particularly those that service smaller businesses.
BizSlate understands that SMBs are frequently understaffed and that each employee is working long days, often wearing multiple hats.
BizSlate understands that SMBs need the power of a large enterprise system without the complexity and costs.
BizSlate understands that SMBs need real-time access to key information from anywhere in the world, inclusive of being able to place an order directly into the ERP while sitting with a client or at a trade show and have product potentially ship same day instead of days and weeks later.
BizSlate’s cloud-based ERP offers proprietary functions not commonly found in other applications that target SMBs. BizSlate’s tools are essential to helping smaller businesses maximize efficiency and successfully manage complexities with large nationwide and regional customers. Each individual function of BizSlate’s system can save businesses up to 3 hours of processing, resulting in overall time savings of up to 90% per shipment. BizSlate’s mobility allows access whether in the warehouse, on a customer call or directly from the trade show floor. This results in an overall improvement to customer satisfaction and possibly shipping to customers the same day instead of weeks beyond the sell date. Additional benefits are recognized throughout BizSlate’s ERP system, which spans areas such as customer management, vendor management, order management, product management, multiple warehouse and inventory management, receiving from vendors and shipping to customers.
ERP for wholesale distributors. Good stuff coming.
