Advanced Inventory Management

Managing safety stock inventory levels by calculating the magical balance of minimal inventory while meeting variable customer demand is a BIG challenge. Optimizing stock levels can be especially challenging if products vary dramatically based on the time of the year or if the life cycles of the products vary substantially.

The advanced inventory management tools incorporate some of today’s most advanced inventory management methods.

Features:

  • Seasonal - Use this option for seasonal items. This option will adjust minimums and maximums when sales fluctuate based on the time of the year.
  • Linear - Use this option if the sale of item tends to increase or decrease in a linear fashion. This method should be used when items increase or decrease in a consistent manner and do not fluctuate in a seasonal manner
  • Average - Select this option if sales are somewhat consistent during the sales life of the product. This method calculates the minimum and maximum values based on the average sales in history.
  • Best Fit - (RECOMMENDED) By selecting this option the system determines the best Prediction Type based on the sales history. The system will try to predict the amount of sales for the past few months using each one of the models listed above. The prediction results for each type is compared to the actual sales in the past period to determine the best fit. The Best Fit option should be used unless the user wishes to restrict the automated calculation process.
  • No Prediction - Select this option to disable the automatic setting and manually set the minimum and maximum values. This option disables the automated feature.

Advanced Inventory Receiving

The Advanced Inventory Receiving module within EBMS includes a three step inventory receiving method: purchase order at the time of purchase, back orders at the time shipments arrive, and invoice processing at the time the expense invoice arrives.

Features:

  • Allows back orders to be created at the time Inventory is received rather than at the time the Invoices are processed
  • Tracks the estimated receiving date of the shipment
  • Allows the user to view all associated back orders as a group instead of as different documents

Advanced Sales Tax

The Advanced Sales Tax option is required for states or provinces that have multiple sales tax rates based on a product group. This advanced feature also allows the user to except a customer from sales tax for a group of products. The standard sales tax calculation (without the Advanced Sales Tax option) will manage taxable and non-taxable items but allows only a single rate per sales tax jurisdiction. For example, you cannot charge 8% tax on sodas and 4% on standard grocery items without this advanced option.

Features:

  • User defined sales tax groups used to group inventory items based on the sales tax requirements. This option gives the user maximum flexibility to calculate different sales tax rates or exempt sales tax based on a group of items.
  • Facilitates multiple sales tax rates for a group of inventory items.
  • Allows the user to have multiple sales tax exemptions for a single customer based on a sales tax group.
  • Gives the user the ability to configure the rates and exemptions of multiple sales taxes that apply to a common jurisdiction. For example, some Canadian provinces require both a GST and a PST sales tax for their province. Some USA sales taxes require a state and local tax for the same jurisdiction.

Advanced Security

The standard EBMS software contains many security options that restrict the user to access only pertinent information. These standard options restrict a user’s ability to access a file, field, button, or report.

One limitation of the standard security feature is that all records are restricted if the user’s security settings restricts the field or file. For example, the history or details of all the vendors are restricted if the user’s security settings restrict access to the vendor information.

The Advanced Security option allows the administrator to limit a user’s access to one or a group of vendors, employees, or other accounts. For example, the manager may want to limit a user’s ability to access specific vendors but give the security rights to other vendors. This allows a secretary to manage the main vendor accounts but restrict access to a few more sensitive accounts. A manager could also restrict some sensitive general ledger accounts such as equity or asset accounts without restricting the user’s access to the revenue or expense accounts.

Auto Send

This EBMS module is designed to allow efficiency in billing and purchasing by providing automatic sending options for Sales Orders, Purchase Orders, Statements, and even Proposals. Auto Send will cycle through your EBMS data and automatically generate e-mails, faxes, and/or printouts (to be mailed) for each customer and vendor that you choose. There is also a Broadcast Send option, which allows you to send newsletters and other informational messages to your customers.

  • Individually send documents using EBMS contact data - Sales orders or invoices can be sent individually directly from the invoice menu using hot keys. EBMS will use your EBMS data and generate E-mails, faxes, and/or printouts from Sales Orders, Purchase Orders, and Proposals using a convenient hot key. The Auto Send enhances the convenience of e-mailing documents over the standard feature of sending e-mails from a document or report preview.
  • Auto Send a Batch of documents - EBMS will automatically send a document(s) to customers or vendors based on a specific criteria. This option can be launched from the EBMS menu or can be automated using a command line option and MS Windows scheduler.
  • Automatically send a copy of the sales order or invoice to a customer’s office whenever a document is created or processed. This method is useful in sending a copy of the document to the correct person within the office rather than relying on the invoice copy being hand delivered or mailed.
  • Use e-mail or fax to send customer statements rather than the traditional method of mailing statements. This method may reduce both postage costs and handling labor
  • Send purchase orders directly to a vendor via e-mail.
  • Send proposals and other documents directly from EBMS using the e-mail or fax information within the customer’s account
  • Automatically send customer account information or other customer specific documents to a group of customers
  • Command Line - A sales order or invoice can be set using an advanced command line function.
  • Broadcast price lists or other documents to a group of customers - Note that this module is not intended to be used to send documents to a large mailing list. An e-mail service should be used to protect against anti-spam filtering.

Automotive Aftermarket Tools

The automotive industry specific tools gives the user the ability to manage a large number of auto parts, maintain pricing, and manage special orders.

Quick product lookup tools and barcode printing and scanning options make selecting items quick and efficient. Promotional pricing and advanced pricing options are available. Stream-lined point-of-sale options make the solution quick and easy-to-use to meet the needs of today’s retail environment.

Parts can be accessed from the order entry window based on the year, make, and model of the customer’s automobile. The lookup connects directly to eKeystone.com to give you a complete parts list. The complete Keystone eCatalog is also integrated directly into the EBMS point-of-sale and order entry window.

Nexpart eCatalog is the most comprehensive and cost effective electronic catalog of automotive parts applications and service dealer available, containing nearly 500 million applications for replacement, accessories and performance parts. This eCatalog can be interfaced directly into the EBMS software.

Business Budget Utilities

The Business Budget Utilities module in EBMS enables the user to enter monthly or annual budget amounts. The module allows the user to calculate monthly budgets by distributing the annual budget evenly, same as last year, or based on a user entered monthly percentage. It also includes powerful budget links that automatically adjust the budget for a specific account.

Features:

  • Enables the user to enter monthly or annual budget amounts
  • Includes powerful dynamic budget that links automatically adjust the budget for a specific account based on the following:
  • Percent of last year’s budget
  • Percent of projected sales for the entire company or a specific department or profit center
  • Percent of total payroll budget
  • Percent of cost of sales budget
  • Percent of last year or budget for a single or range of general ledger accounts
  • Links directly to an Excel spreadsheet to allow a budget to be populated directly from a spreadsheet cell
  • Includes formulas within the budget dialogue to do basic calculations from variables, account budget or past year values
  • Allows the user to calculate monthly budget by distributing the annual budget evenly, same as last year or based on a user-entered monthly percentage
  • Includes powerful tools to answer the following:
  • Will I have the income to pay for the projected expenses?
  • Are my current sales and expenses meeting the goals required to earn my projected profits?
  • Are my overhead costs within a manageable level?
  • Do I have the information needed to decide the company’s financial decisions?

Client Server

The EBMS Client/Server is an application that runs as a service on a Microsoft Windows based server such as MS Windows Server 2008 R2, 2008, 2003 or business grade operating system such as Windows 7 Pro or higher. All file access functions are managed by the server software running on the application server. This option allows the clients to request specific information from the server rather than opening, sorting, and indexing the files individually.

Adding the EBMS server to a network is like placing an individual by the file cabinet that responds to the requests of others within the office rather than each person finding and accessing the information individually.

Companies using EBMS that have 5 or more users (or 3 or more frequent users) should adopt the EBMS Server rather than using a peer-based network solutions

Features:

EBMS client/server offers many advantages over the standard networked model of database access:

  • Stability - The risk of database damage and corrupted indexes are greatly reduced because the database server is the only application that implements changes to the database. The EBMS Server is a good option to reduce data corruption caused by a faulty network.
  • Performance - EBMS Server reduces traffic on a network which will reduce the strain on most networks especially in a situation with limited bandwidth. The reduced network traffic may increase the speed of database operations significantly and increase overall performance. Running the EBMS server on a high-performance server computer may also improve overall performance by allowing the client application to take advantage of the server’s inherent processing speed. Eagle Solutions recommends that the EBMS Server application is implemented when EBMS is used with more than 5 simultaneous users.
  • Data Integrity – EBMS will roll back any partially created transactions if a power outage, network failure, or other interruption aborts a process such as processing invoices, timecards, payments, or writing any information. If the EBMS Server has not received all transactions within a process, EBMS ignores the entire set of transactions. This ensures that the large volume of data maintained by EBMS does not become mismatched.
  • Security – The EBMS server helps the user secure company data even better. Files do not need to be shared. The only way to access the data on the network is by logging on the server. Communications with the server are encrypted. In addition to basic account information, you can also specify an IP address range for any account. If the account doesn’t log in from a machine within the specified range, access is denied.
  • Scalability – The client/server application allows EBMS to scale to 50 users
  • Easy Server Configuration - EBMS Server makes it much easier for the administrator and the end-users to configure and maintain the EBMS information store. All server configuration options can be accessed through the EBMS Administrator application.
  • Information Reporting - The EBMS server can supply reports on a variety of information to help the administrator manage the client/server applications. The reporting enhancements include
    • Server Information - Provides general information on server up-time, number of users connected and more
    • Account Reports - Provides details on all current server accounts, including account-level file privileges and any IP address restrictions
    • Privilege Reports - Provides a list of all individual account/table privileges recognized by the EBMS server
    • Connection Information - Provides you with a number of different reports that detail which accounts are currently connected to the EBMS server, which tables each account is using and what table/record locks each account has in place. Useful both for security reasons and when troubleshooting applications

All server reports can be accessed easily through EBMS server administrator

Components & Accessories

Components and accessories group multiple inventory items into a kit or set that is identified by an inventory code. These groups are used as standard component lists, assemblies, materials lists, manufacturing batches, made-to-order items, inventory sets, and associated items.

A kit or assembly identifies a list of inventory items. Inventory is maintained by the parts or components within the main item.

A manufactured item is assembled or manufactured from parts or raw material. Inventory counts are maintained for both the manufactured item as well as its components.

Accessories are related items that accompany an item in the sales document. They are priced separately rather than assembled within the kit.

Features:

  • Kits & Assemblies The component is linked to a main item that is priced as a unit. Inventory is maintained by the parts or components within the main item.
  • Materials Lists on a Sales Order or Invoice The Materials lists feature of EBMS used to list individual items within a sales order or invoice without displaying the details on the printed invoice. The Materials list feature is useful in the following situations; An assembly is listed on a sales order or invoice that contains multiple components, the sales invoice shows the total contract without product or labor details, the individual products used to fulfill the contract are listed within the materials list to properly process inventories, or when a set of inventory items are sold and priced as a set rather than priced individually
  • Inventory Sets The components are linked together using a main inventory id but each item is individually priced. All pricing is derived from the component level to create a set total price. Inventory counts are processed the same way as when the user enters each individual item.
  • Manufactured Inventory Inventory components can be set up so that the sales invoice is not affected when the inventory item is entered. The components are used only when the optional manufacturing module is available. The inventory module is used when an item is required to be manufactured from other inventory items at a given manufacturing date (rather than be processed at sale time). This allows the system to track counts on both the manufactured part and each component.
  • The optional components option within EBMS allows the user to attach multiple options to a specific assembly. The list of components within an assembly may have a combination of standard features (components) as well as options (optional components). Options such as color may or may not affect the price of the entire kit. The pricing options for the assembly may be based on the total cost of individual components or the base price of each component.
  • The accessory option within EBMS allows the user to add accessories or options that are priced separately rather than assembled within the actual item. These items are listed on a separate tab from the item’s components.

Crystal Reports - Standard

Features:

  • Allows a user with Crystal Reports to modify any existing report or form
  • Additional reports can be added to EBMS
  • Charts and Graphs can be created for management purposes

  • Prompts on the report allow user flexibility on what to print, with the ability to do lookups from the prompts
  • Query options give additional flexibility on data filtering options. Advanced Query uses Crystal Syntax

Customer Signature Processing

The Customer Signature Processing module is used to digitally capture a customer’s signature and record it within the sales invoice. The signature is printed on the hard copy of the sales invoice and archived electronically within EBMS.

Features:

  • Prints the signature on the hard copy of the Sales Invoice
  • Does not require carbon copy paper to record multiple copies of the signature on the Sales Invoice
  • Archives the customer’s signature electronically within EBMS

Discount & Percentage Pricing Codes

Discount and Percentage Pricing Codes is the module within EBMS used to create a discount line within a quote or sales order. Discount items are often used if the user wishes to add a separate line following the original items or group of items rather than discounting the item within the original sales order line.

Features:

  • Employee Discounts
  • Volume Discounts
  • A promotional discount for a group of items based on the total purchases on multiple items
  • Fixed dollar discounts are calculated by a fixed discount dollar amount.
  • Percentage discounts are calculated based on a percentage of the price from previous lines.
  • Calculate a tax based on a percentage of the previous lines.
  • Calculate a surcharge or any other item based on a percentage of a previous item(s) rather than a fixed price.

Dynamic E-Commerce

Increasingly more people are shopping on the internet and locating stores or specific product online. The e-Commerce Module within EBMS allows you to start a store online using your existing EBMS inventory system. The E-Commerce module of EBMS allows the user to create product lists, pictures, pricing, and details for a website, directly from the EBMS inventory system. The user reduces redundant information by only maintaining one product and price list.

The module includes a full featured shopping cart that includes terms, shipping options, and pricing uploaded from the EBMS software. This optional EBMS module facilitates the process of A) Uploading product information, customer information, and page design from the EBMS Software, B) Managing an online shopping cart, and C) Downloading and processing orders from the e-commerce website to EBMS.

Features:

  • Allows customer to add, remove and control the content of your entire e-Commerce website from the EBMS Software. Product pricing, availability and details are derived from the EBMS Inventory database.
  • Adds entire groups of products within minutes. Products within the EBMS Inventory Catalogue can easily be added or removed from the e-Commerce store.
  • Updates product information, pricing and availability regularly using data synchronization. Products may be removed or marked as out-of-stock based on Inventory levels.
  • Reduces redundant information. The user is not required to maintain two separate product lists: the POS System within EBMS and the e-Commerce list on the web.
  • Automatically creates dynamic product information. New product lists, customer pricing and out-of-stock notations, and details are created directly from the information within EBMS.
  • Displays user-specific pricing, terms and shipping options based on the username and password created within EBMS. Are all derived directly from the Accounts Receivable module in EBMS. The customer’s name and password are entered within the customer record of EBMS.
  • Allows the customer to receive orders directly into your order entry system. E-Commerce orders are inserted into EBMS as a Sales Order.
  • Verifies credit card information online through a common gateway. Credit card processing is integrated into the EBMS Software. The card is validated online but is not debited until Invoice is processed. This feature minimizes the number of credits and billing charges at the time the order is processed.

Electronic Time Track

TimeTrack is a web-based employee time and attendance application that allows employees to take advantage of the ease and convenience of web-based accessibility. Built on the .NET 3.5 platform for use with Microsoft IIS, employees are able to clock in and out from wherever there is a web connection. Time is entered directly into EBMS Payroll, eliminating clerical time entering timecard information.

Once you’ve added TimeTrack to your web server, deployment of the application to your employees is as simple as sending them a web link. Time Track can be run on multiple computers at one time or implemented on a single computer within a company network.

Reviews of Eagle Business Management Software (EBMS)

Michael from Yoder's Country Market says...

Excellent in many ways. The pos buttons are a bit small. The service is slow to fix bugs or problems at times but the program as a whole is great.

The good: It has many different mogels to serve all my business needs.

The bad: The POS buttons to be bigger. To have a better pole display for the customers. better service

Brad from Hollabaugh Bros., Inc. says...

EBMS provides a good platform for business accounting offering a modular approach that makes it adaptable to many types of businesses. We especially appreciate the versatile, horticultural features that help us as an Agricultural business. In addition, the integration of Point-of-Sale, accounting, and inventory management for our retail farm market has become an essential part of our operation.

The good: EBMS has excellent audit features, allows flexibility in managing all accounts, and has outstanding “drill down” features that allows a quick view into specific transactions. The horticulture features provide a means of tracking yields and labor costs in a highly detailed fashion and is highly adaptable for piece rate, contract, hourly, and salaried payroll methods.

The bad: EBMS is a product designed for intermediate business and may be considered too expensive for small businesses that could truly benefit from its features. EBMS is an accrual system. For Agricultural enterprises that file taxes on a cash basis, the translation/interpretation of transactions may be awkward. EBMS provides the platform for a great deal of detail in all areas. However, the time required to set up a detailed system is very substantial. So, the initial cost of setting up EBMS is far greater than the purchase price of the user licenses.

Jason from Beiler Hydraulics inc says...

Good software for small businesses

The good: Strengths inventory weakness mfg mudule

The bad: Mfg module

Dianne from Yipes Auto Accessories of Northern Vermont says...

I appreciate that EGMS is willing to address our personal needs and implement them quickly

The good: works very well with our business needs

The bad: Since we were the first to use the software with the Keystone line, it was a bit of a challenge getting it set up in a way that would work best with our business. Now that we have been using it for several years, I’m sure there are still features that we do not know about, so would probably be helpful to have an easy interactive way to review all the features

Marcie from Cocalico Plumbing & Heating says...

To sum it up one software program that does it all! We use it on a daily basis and truly would recommend it to others.

The good: It is so easy to navigate and use. From processing payroll, entering customer information and invoicing, to generating monthly reports you will be surprised at what all EBMS has to offer.

The bad: Have not encountered anything I do not like or would change

Drew from Londonvale Inc says...

EBMS Is a very well rounded software for companies with hundreds of inventory items. The reports used throughout the various modules are very helpful in managing your day to day operations. We recently added the task module to improve our service department scheduling and track work in progress and were very pleased with all the options and implementation.

The good: General Ledger reports are clear and pin point on. Inventory folder capabilities are endless. Proposals that are using the most recent pricing update upon the last vendor purchase.

The bad: A large number of our customers obtain a budget number with an original proposal number. Then changes are made to the proposal and we either add or delete items. This causes us to either copy the proposal and makes changes so we do not loose our base price or add option lines to the original. I wish there would be an option to overlay the changes on the proposal but not lose the original. Some estimating software allows for the base bid to remain black ink and the changes to be red ink and the third change to be green and so on to help customers decide which option is best. It would also be helpful and more clear to present to the customer. If we provide three options on the current proposal platform for they are all added together at the bottom causing the customer to be confused and in some cases sticker shock. Then we always end up explaining the price would only be the total of one of the options.

Jason from Alpha Building Center says...

EBMS is a software that can be tailored to fit specific needs. This allows us to conduct our business our way, without having to deal with software that does not do exactly what we would prefer.

The good: I think the best thing that I like about EBMS is that, while it has all the complexity needed for it to do what it does, it is not a complicated program to operate.

The bad: I think that the thing that I do not like the least is common windows keyboard shortcuts, such as ctrl-p for printing and ctrl-a for select all (there are others as well,) are setup to do something completely different in EBMS. I prefer to use the keyboard for most of my work and would think that having those common shortcuts would improve workflow.

Keith from Wojanis Supply says...

EBMS is a fully customizable inventory management/accounting software package that is affordable to the small to medium sized business.

The good: I enjoy customizing reports to suit our needs as well as the flexibility to tap into the system for third party applications.

The bad: Ok…you asked. The customization process is too long and often times get overlooked even though a tracking number is assigned to each request.

Travis from Sweitzer's Performance says...

It is a great software for business. You have everything you need at your fingertips and easy to access.

The good: The Reports

The bad: it all seems to work good for us

Jesse from JMLapp Plumbing and Heating says...

EBMS is a comprehensive software, that integrates accounting, inventory management, job costing, reporting, manufacturing, customer contact info, among other things. EMBS is flexible and customizable to accommodate a wide range of business applications. We love it.

The good: The part I like the best about EBMS is definantly the flexibility you get from all the setting options as well as the ability to customize the design. The inventory management design is powerful. There is a lot of information that can be stored in each inventory profile. I like the min max setting for track count items and the way that works with inventory ordering. I like the many reports that EBMS can provide and the fact that custom reports can be created. The tasks module also is powerful and we use it extensively since we are in the service industry. Job costing is great and we use that a lot too.

The bad: The task module should have a calendar view displaying scheduled tasks.
Lacking integration with remote devices like smart phones.

Lonnie from Kauffman's Fruit Farm & Market says...

The integration is really good. Orchard management, payroll, sales and website, unified inventory including random weight items.

The good: The ease of having one set of data for all business units while allowing dozens of users to access it, and being able to easily backup that data. Not all databases are this easy to work with as far as ease of management.

The bad: Response time to my support needs, even just an email giving me a ticket number and perhaps one sentence from a CSR giving a quick suggestion, is the same day only about 30% of the time.

An anonymous Eagle Business Management Software (EBMS) user from Allout Offroad, Inc says...

Point of Sale, Inventory Management, Accounting

The good: “The key to running a business successfully is efficiency. EBMS has helped us achieve efficiency not just for our point of sale software needs, but our accounting needs as well. It has helped reduce the amount of time that was spent on searching for certain transactions, tracking parts, monitoring our inventory, and keep our accounting up to date. We have caught many costly mistakes made by our company as well as our vendors, that could have been easily overlooked in the past. Our goal is to continue to grow our business, and EBMS will be a major tool in helping us become the successful company that we desire. The support team is patient and has done an excellent job in trying to meet the needs that we require, even if what we need is not inherit with EBMS. Duane in particular has spent more than ample time explaining the functions of EBMS and getting us out of binds that we may find our self in from time to time. Overall I am very pleased with the product and would recommend EBMS to anyone looking to help assist their company for all of their point of sale software and accounting needs.”

The bad: NA

Anita says...

A great software program that is meeting every need as business and technology is rapidly growing

The good: great tracking, super reports, and a lot of time saving tools

The bad: Yearend banking reports should be printed the same day as fiscal year end to avoid unneeded time
