Atlanta, August 16, 2011 — Ross Systems, Inc., a subsidiary of CDC Software Corporation, announced today the general availability of Ross ERP 6.4.4, a new version featuring the initial release of Enterprise Viewer a new user interface allowing users to define content within Ross that they can follow to improve productivity and efficiency at their jobs, while increasing customer service and satisfaction levels.
The new Enterprise Viewer in Ross ERP allows users to configure their own views by subscribing to functional “widgets” that follow specific information pertinent to their role. In Enterprise Viewer, a widget is a program that displays specific information regarding customers and products such as Orders Due to Ship Today, Sales By Customer, Outstanding Balances, and Inventory Availability. In the initial release of Enterprise Viewer, the widgets are customer or product-based information, with additional widgets such as supplier and recipe-based information planned in future Service Packs.
In addition, the user can select multiple widgets and configure the individual widgets and how they are arranged and displayed within the Enterprise Viewer. When opening Enterprise Viewer, the user’s personal widgets automatically display up-to-date information that can be viewed in grid-based or graphical formats and can be expanded or collapsed. The Enterprise Viewer also lets users access the information they need without having to navigate through additional screens, thereby saving time and more quickly meeting the needs of customers.
Ross ERP 6.4.4 also supports Microsoft .NET 4.0 which provides the foundation for Ross Systems to deliver its next generation of products recently announced at its Ross Enterprise SIG conference in May 2011. At that conference, Ross Systems announced its plans to deliver its next generation suite of ERP applications which are expected to add new functionality, improved interoperability, increased collaborative capabilities, enhanced usability and significant new mobile features.
"The latest version of Ross ERP uniquely pushes the relevant daily content workers need to follow onto their screens for easy viewing as compared to most ERP systems where you have to manually query to retrieve the information,” said Sherri Rodriguez, president of Ross Systems. “Workers can access information without having to navigate through additional screens, which not only saves time but also helps them deliver timely information to their customers. Ross 6.4.4 is the latest new product which illustrates our continuing commitment to develop innovative solutions that we feel differentiate us in the marketplace by allowing us to specifically address our customer’s distinct industry requirements."
