Australian technology company, Pronto Software, has today released a major update to its flagship business management software, Pronto Xi. The new release enables mid-market organisations to better manage data, gain deeper insight into business operations and embrace mobility.

Pronto Xi 720 represents the company’s first transition into a one-year release cycle. This new iteration is designed to help businesses adapt to today’s increasingly global marketplaces and transform operations.

Incorporating hundreds of fresh innovations and improvements, Pronto Xi 720 combines smart Enterprise Resource Planning software with innovative data analytics, Business Intelligence and intuitive mobile functionality.

David Jackman, Managing Director, Pronto Software, said the new features were developed after listening to Pronto’s customers across sectors as diverse as retail, mining, manufacturing, facilities management, supply chain and distribution.

“Pronto Xi 720 empowers all members of a business with the information they need to work smarter - whether they are in an office, on the shop floor, in the factory, warehouse, or out on the road.

“Not only have we made significant updates to the capabilities of our modules that cater to the changing needs of each industry, our analytics technology has also improved to better enable businesses to analyse every aspect of their business, so teams can work smarter and more efficiently,” added Mr Jackman.

In this latest release, Pronto Software has made significant improvements to its business management software, including delivering more flexibility and control to its financial systems, bringing finance teams a robust suite to efficiently manage assets, as well as more intuitive budgeting capabilities.

For sales and marketing departments, Pronto strengthens the management of their customer relationships with the ability for Pronto Xi CRM to synchronise seamlessly with third party Mail Servers.

For companies that specialise in distribution and supply chain driven operations, improved integration of warehouse management and shipment modules enables greater efficiency with store allocations. Additionally, inventory enhancements give companies the flexibility to manage stock through a variety of processes within the entire operation.

Pronto Xi 720 introduces a number of new tools specifically designed for asset and facility management organisations. These include the consolidation of preventative maintenance and improvements to overall workflow, from the back office to field service engineers. Enhancing automation of tedious areas of project quotation and cost tracking, the Pronto Xi 720 release also introduces a cost breakdown module, allowing for a greater level of costing granularity and margin management.

In this era of build-to-order manufacturing, additions to the sales configurator system helps manufacturers to staff on the shop floor gain greater visibility into work orders, enabling increased productivity throughout the production process.

Further, with the release of Pronto Xi 720, the suite of Business Intelligence modules are now available as an application on Android devices, in addition to iOS technology, enabling instant access to real-time business reporting and analytics from Pronto Xi.

Pronto Xi Connect now provides new Service, Fixed Asset, Inventory and CRM APIs, and full LDAP Support for easy integration to custom or third party service-oriented applications.

“Today, more than ever, organisations are looking to IT solutions to deliver competitive advantage and stay ahead of the curve. Pronto Xi 720 brings together the best in ERP, mobile and BI technologies into a fully integrated solution for the mid-market. With Pronto Xi 720, businesses are supported and empowered to take the leap from where they are, to where they want to be,” said Mr Jackman.
