Exact Event Manager enables businesses like yours to run more intelligently and efficiently than ever before.
Both internal demands and competitive pressure have necessitated a consolidated view of the workplace, leading to event management solutions becoming mandatory in today's business environment.
Most event management solutions define the events important to your organization, but with Exact Event Manager,
from Exact Software, you
get to define not only the events, but the actions you would like to take in response.
With Exact Event Manager
, you can define specific events within your ODBC compliant data source that need monitoring. If the event occurs, or passes, it can trigger multiple responses, ranging from automating Exact e-Synergy workflow, to sending an email, pager message or even generating reports.

- Automatically fax or email past due invoices to customers as soon as they have been overdue for a certain amount of time.
- Receive notification by email or cell phone when key products arrive, or when key purchase orders don’t!

The benefits? Event Manager users resolve small issues before they become big problems. They print and analyze fewer reports, saving valuable management time. And most importantly, they improve customer satisfaction.
Exact Business Analytics (EBA) provides real – time Business Intelligence for better decisions.
EBA is a solution with a clear mission -- to provide ready access to information that empowers business people to make better decisions that directly affect the performance of your business. Information that had been locked away within enterprise resource planning (ERP) or customer relationship management (CRM) systems becomes available to provide the basis for improved corporate and personal performance. EBA puts power and functionality into the hands of business managers. It offers the power to quickly and easily build information views while dynamically combining and comparing data from multiple sources or different business functions. In addition to ad-hoc analyses, users can create personalized information--views, graphs and reports--that can be automatically distributed to users on a pre-defined schedule or accessed via the Internet.
EBA offers pre-built ERP integration to both Macola ES and Progression. EBA also integrates and displays data from any ODBC-compliant data source. In addition to flexible tools for defining views and reports, EBA's Analytical Model includes pre-defined information views and report templates that are available on "day one."
Small to Mid market ERP users need real – time inventory visibility.
Warehouse Managements Systems (WMS) provide real time inventory management and improve tracking and recording of materials management.

The WiSys WMS eliminates this lag time and offers you real time materials management.
