Your questions answered:

Do you struggle with your current Exchequer software?

Stockists, wholesalers and distributors who begin their journey on Exchequer software, often find that they require a software package that can combine all their business processes including sales orders, stock and their eCommerce website into one ERP solution. 

OGL Software is developed for wholesalers and distributors to make every business process streamlined and integrated to remove the headaches you face in a system that forces you to complete tasks manually. Customers who moved to prof.ITplus all experienced the same challenges in Exchequer such as:

  • Manually allocating and purchasing stock
  • Limited stock control capabilities so they can't have multiple suppliers for a single product or serial number tracking 
  • No suggested minimum or maximum levels for stock levels, so stock control is manual and based on estimates
  • Time-consuming cost and supplier price updates
  • A disconnected eCommerce website
  • Searching for sales order history is poor so quotes are completed outside the system

These challenges affect the productivity and efficiency of your business processes, which ultimately has an overall effect on business performance and can also hinder growth and expansion. We tackle the issues businesses face with Exchequer and other ERP systems that restrict optimum performance and growth. Our software has a variety of core modules, tailored for your industry, so you can be sure that OGL Software will work seamlessly with your business.

Our development team is always expanding and improving our software to meet our customers’ needs and over the past 40 years has created modules we know will meet your requirements, including:

  • Quote and sales order management
  • Dynamic pricing structures
  • Seamless CRM integration
  • Warehouse & stock management
  • Company & sales reporting
  • Purchasing & supplier management 
  • Accounts & invoicing
  • eCommerce and online shopping channel integration

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 Exchequer 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.
