Lilly Software Delivers Executive Information Anywhere, Anytime with Wireless VISUAL Mobile Solution
03 March 2003, Hampton, NH (USA) —Lilly Software Associates will announce its new wireless solution, VISUAL Mobile™, at National Manufacturing Week, March 3-6, in Chicago, Illinois. VISUAL Mobile allows users to access high-level summary information from VISUAL Enterprise™ using handheld PCs. Lilly developed the solution by combining the portability and convenience of handheld devices with browser-based Microsoft .NET technology, high-speed networking capabilities of Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi), and direct integration to the VISUAL database without the need for a third-party interface. VISUAL Mobile helps companies stay responsive and agile by connecting them to real-time executive, financial, sales, and shop floor data.
VISUAL Mobile keeps CEOs and managers in touch with the most current executive news, including order and shipment volumes, cash flow, Work In Progress/Value Added Services, and product and profitability reports. With immediate access to financial data, users can instantly check invoices, accounts receivable, accounts payable, cash flow aggregates, gross profit, and short term cash plans. Whether users are on the road, at home, or just away from their desk, they can consistently track critical records and make informed decisions with VISUAL Mobile, saving time and energy.
Lilly’s wireless solution is ideal for companies that want to deliver a high level of customer service and respond quickly and resourcefully to customer needs. By using handheld devices to access network resources, service and sales representatives can readily confirm customer contact information, quotes, customer orders, shipments, and invoices. They can verify Requests for Proposal, inventory part pricing, and stock levels. Managers can easily follow day-to-day activity on work order efficiencies and status, expectant receipt of raw materials, scheduling and throughput, and employee productivity.
“Today’s economy forces companies to succeed by delivering efficiency, top customer service, high quality products, and affordable pricing,” says Scott Rich, Vice President, Marketing, Lilly Software Associates. “With a wireless solution, managers can access significant decision-making data anywhere, at anytime. VISUAL Mobile extends the VISUAL Enterprise solution by allowing companies to operate with greater flexibility and to be proactive in response to changes in customer demands or unexpected constraints. It puts accurate, up-to-date information at employees’ fingertips, improving service and sales by promoting effective communication with customers and suppliers.”
VISUAL Mobile will be available in the second quarter of 2003.
