OfficeBooks' Revamped User Interface Boosts Efficiency of Cloud-Based Business Management(June 04, 2012)
OTTAWA, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 06/04/12 -- Offering key business management tools from invoicing and inventory control to work order oversight and sales support, OfficeBooks (www.officebooks.com) is the paperless, Web-based business software solution for small and medium-sized manufacturers. Now the system is even easier to use, thanks to the new interface unveiled today by Ottawa based, OfficeBook Inc.
Since its launch in late 2011, OfficeBooks has quickly grown to become the business management software of choice among new and expanding manufacturers who need assistance with enterprise resource planning (ERP) but may not require the scope of a complete ERP software suite. The system's popularity is no accident: Experts who have actually worked in manufacturing developed and continually update OfficeBooks.
"The OfficeBook Inc. team knows what it takes to keep a manufacturing business running smoothly," explained OfficeBook President and Founder John Hunter. "OfficeBooks has all the features and tools a small business needs, without unnecessary components that may create a cumbersome or distracting user experience. There are also no special IT or software requirements. If a company has an Internet connection, it can streamline all its core business functions with OfficeBooks."
The new OfficeBooks interface makes the software even easier to use. The system is versatile, allowing users to upload data -- for instance, inventory or contacts -- from their own spreadsheets or to enter data as they go. Users can create work orders and purchase orders in just one click, and the system alerts the correct users whenever action items, including work orders, purchase orders, shipments and invoices, come due.
OfficeBooks effectively takes the place of the outdated, often inefficient paper forms still in use by many companies. Businesses that have implemented OfficeBooks report fewer constraints on employees' time, fewer mistakes, less paper usage and reduced file storage burden. With OfficeBooks, all data is securely stored in the cloud, rather than on individual computers. All key employees can access the right information -- precisely when they need it.
Feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. "(OfficeBooks is) a cloud toolbox to help other businesses handle purchase orders, price quotes, work orders, contacts and more," said Mark Hendricks of American Express Open-Forum.
Erica Nicole, CEO of Young, Fabulous and Self-Employed, agreed. "(OfficeBooks has) the agility, scalability, reliability, and efficiency required to run a local, national or global business from anywhere in the world," she stated.
OfficeBooks is available for a free, full-featured 30-day trial. After the trial period ends, the cloud-based software is just $49 per month per company, with no additional user fees or licensing fees. To try OfficeBooks and see the new user interface, visit www.officebooks.com.
