ProfitKey, a leading provider of ERP solutions and services for small and medium-size manufacturers and job shops, today announced the availability of PK 8.1, a major release of its next generation enterprise resource planning (ERP) suite which helps manufacturers increase operational efficiency, increase sales, improve inventory management and enhance customer service levels.
Founded in 1979, ProfitKey provides integrated ERP/MES solutions and services designed for small and medium-size manufacturers and job shops operating in make-to-order, make-to-stock, engineer-to-order, and other discrete manufacturing environments.
According to the announcement, PK 8.1 takes ERP navigability to the next level by featuring a new user interface that delivers one click, streamlined navigation and the look and feel of a Microsoft Office type environment. The release also includes multiple enhancements to its native CRM application including new Opportunity Analysis functionality, enabling a company to track its sales pipeline based on parameters that include confidence of quote and weighted by a confidence percentage. This allows sales managers to see which deals need attention before it’s too late and lets them and their reps focus proactively on activities with the greatest impact on deal closure.
