We make it simple to move from EDP

We understand the move from one business software package to another can be daunting and this is often the main reason businesses choose not to upgrade. But you won’t regret your choice with OGL Software.

We have a dedicated delivery team, with years of experience migrating companies from EDP, who will manage the process of migrating from start to finish and will be there every step of the way to make sure you’re comfortable and happy with the move. We also dedicate time before the move to fully understanding your business and the way you work so you can be confident that OGL Software will support your business the way you need it to. 

Our expert Data Analysts will ensure your data history is transferred so you can continue the day-to-day running of your business, but this time only better!

Your key users will also undergo training on the system, which can be done either at OGL’s training facilities or on your own site. This means your team will have a good understanding of how everything works before you go live. We will even be on-site with you when you go live to help with any initial queries.

Better still, once the delivery team has moved you from EDP to OGL Software, your dedicated Account Manager is always on hand to make sure you’re getting the best out of the software. And we don’t stop there. Our team of Software Developers work continuously on further enhancements and improvements, which are rolled out every couple of months, free of charge, as part of your ongoing Software Support package.

We provide ongoing support

Without effective support for your software, your business can be left in a critical position that hinders your sales. The team behind OGL Software understands the importance of your software running smoothly at all times, which is why we’re rated so highly on our robust, reliable system.

Moving to OGL Software means that if you need support for your software - maybe a staff member is having problems changing something within the system - or you are experiencing technical issues, then our support team is on hand to assist. Better still, we don't sell our products using re-sellers, so right from the beginning of your journey, you'll always be dealing directly with us. 

We have a dedicated in-house Support Team, including specialists in each area of the software and development, available to give you the best solutions and advice for your problems.

And if you just want to make sure you are getting the most out of the software then your Account Manager will be able to advise you. 

Software features your business needs: 

Fully Integrated CRM

Our CRM module gives you the ability to; email quotes with product images attached, profile customers for targeted marketing campaigns, track conversion rates for quotes to orders for account reporting. Plus, it seamlessly communicates with all other modules - for example, it enables you to view specific account information when inputting an order in the Sales Order screen. You can also record all external or internal communications regarding a customer account to ensure you deliver excellent customer service for your clients. 

Order Management

Management of quotes and orders should be simple, which is why our module allows you to: update and save special customer pricing, view stock in multiple depots, view current promotions and give visibility of up-sell / cross-sell opportunities, easily place customer re-orders, see leakage, know the profit margins for products to make price negotiation quicker, see credit control warnings and auto send order confirmation emails. 

Stock Control & Management

Manually keeping on top of your growing product portfolio is time-consuming and open to errors that impact heavily on profits. Our Stock Control module automates processes such as re-ordering stock based on minimum stock level parameters, making purchasing stock accurate and efficient. Other benefits include: advanced searching capabilities, supplier price imports, perpetual stocktakes, batch traceability to monitor expiry dates and link items for part dispatch.

“OGL’s pre-sale process was very thorough and comprehensive. The process was tailored to each member of staff and involving everyone was key to the purchasing decision as it gave confidence of the commitment at an early stage. Even as customers, we had not heard anything from EDP for 2 years and we were very impressed with the level of service from OGL.”
