EmpowerSO is the cornerstone module of the Empower e-business distribution software, providing the technology you need to better manage the entire sales cycle of your products.

Whether you begin by entering a quote on the Web or by placing an order from your desk, EmpowerSO works with you during each step of processing the order: from approval, to acknowledgement, to confirmation, to procurement, to logistics, to shipping, to billing, to collection.

After the order is processed, EmpowerSO’s Sales Analysis module provides timely reporting of gross sales, gross margin, and net profit to keep you on top of what products and customers are having the greatest impact on your sales and on your bottom line.

Efficiency is one of the hallmarks of EmpowerSO. Once a quote/order has been placed, all of the processing related to that quote/order is handled electronically, eliminating the usual delays inherent in manual paper based systems.
