Making ERP systems easy to use for all users is something that system admins and managers have been trying to achieve for decades and, by using ERP Apps Portals, inputting information into the system has never been easier.

‘The easier we can make Unit4 for all of the users, the better’. When Adam Davies started ERP Apps back in the autumn of 2019 he had a simple mission. ‘Unit4 is a good solution, it works perfectly well. But for some users it can be too much, especially people inputting simple data’. After working with ERP software for 14 years, Adam had seen that for most users, Unit4 wasn’t a problem but that there were opportunities to make the processes quicker and easier.

‘Everyone we’ve showed it to have loved it’

ERP Portal was the first product that Adam created, a simple and straightforward Web based portal works on any device with a modern browser, works with standard business world functions such as Workflows and Document Archive. ‘I wanted to make something that anyone could use and that would be really quick to implement. Everyone I’ve show it to have loved it and have wanted to know how to get it working’.

One of the main elements that Adam is most proud of is how adaptable the system is. ‘It’s almost infinitely brandable, people won’t even know they’re inputting data into Unit4.’ The portal can be branded with your own logos, fonts and colours which adapt as users navigate between their clients. You can also embed the frames within your website for a seamless user experience.

The portals were coded and built by Adam and his team but implementing them onto a customer’s system is a very easy and painless process, with it taking only a few days to integrate and brand, meaning almost no down time for the customer and an immediate improvement in engagement.

‘It’s always learning and making the whole process quicker’

AI OCR is another flagship product, a system that uses Rossum AI to read invoice documentation and automatically input the key information into Unit4 Invoicing. ‘It’s always learning and making the whole process quicker. If it can’t find the information it’s looking for, the AI can learn where to look in future and the artificial intelligence gets smarter’. The portal achieves up to 95% accuracy within 30 days from regular processing and captures data 6 times faster than manual data entry, for a 97% reduction in keystrokes.

ERPS Apps have two new products due for release and showcased them at a recent webinar, one designed to automate the on-barding checks and processes for new customers and suppliers, and a data portal that’s designed to improve engagement with RCP systems for light touch users.
