Sales & Marketing Solutions
Managing the Sales Cycle – Order Entry/Invoicing, EDI, Marketing Program Tracking, CRM and POS
Sales drives business and growth. Getting orders right, the first time, builds your reputation and keeps control of your costs. Responding to customers and building new customer relationships is critical to business performance. Minotaur understands this and helps you manage the sales process from beginning to end. Executive dashboards can be set up so you can monitor the numbers you need from your phone or table to know you are on target.
Minotaur ERP helps you enter orders efficiently and accurately whether you receive them by phone, fax, email or EDI. On the road sales reps can enter their orders while at the customer using cell connectivity, with up to the minute inventory status, credit status, buying history and more. Whether you price your items as list prices, use price lists, have customer or customer group specific pricing or require deal or date based pricing, with volume breaks, Minotaur has you covered. Many of our customers deal with the big retailers. Tracking marketing programs such as co-op, over and above, volume rebates, etc. manually can be time consuming. Minotaur has a module where you can set up all those programs by customer or customer group and by sku. Every invoice or credit tracks what you owe that customer or what they may take off invoice. Get rid of complicated spreadsheets the Minotaur way.
