Speed Up Collections with More Efficient Billing
A consulting company needs a better way to document its billable hours, improve its receivables and generate more revenue per customer. The company needs to help manage the organisation's contracts better, improve the accuracy of its invoices and improve overall customer retention through better service.
Potential implementation benefits include:
Improved revenue per consultant – Up to 5% of potential revenue may be lost due to consultants' not fully billing for the work they do. Automating the process may reduce this amount by 0.25% or more
Improved customer retention – Improved record-keeping and management of customer contracts will improve the service offered
More efficient collections – Properly tracking projects and providing more accurate invoices can reduce the number of billing disputes and increase the speed of receivables
Labour savings – Improved processes may reduce the need for support staff by one full-time employee.
The key considerations for picking the right financial solution are about both with the software and the provider. At Enabling we supply Financial Management Information Systems (FMIS) from leading vendors, which can be easily mapped to your business processes and manage end-to-end financial business processes. For this industry, we have provided our customers with built-in executive dashboards, robust reporting & analytics, plus the ability to integrate with other internal & external business systems.

Customer Relationship Management (CRM) systems are fast becoming a key competitive strategy for managing interactions with customers, sales prospects and suppliers. A good CRM system will help a business attract, and win new customers, retain those the company already has, as well as reduce the costs of marketing and customer service. A CRM system provides a company-wide business strategy for businesses who value customer relationships. It provides a complete overview of ALL relationships that contribute to the success of the business providing easy access and cooperation among the sales, service, and marketing teams.
A CRM system is an enterprise-wide view of how an organisation communicates with its stakeholders. An effective CRM system provides complete and consistent customer information so sales and marketing are tightly integrated. It allows customer service to manage customer relationships and expectations. A true CRM system provides anywhere, anytime access for management or remote users to view key organisational and customer information, and most importantly – the data remains accessible to the whole organisation.
Enabling offers a range of CRM system products, and has extensive experience in implementing, configuring and enhancing these solutions in a wide range of industries – having the right approach to ensure user adoption. We have also developed extended CRM systems for varied industries and businesses that have needed a single database, or technology platform to manage the information flow through their organisation. xRM is Anything(x) Relationship Management – it is the concept of leveraging a flexible and powerful platform, and the applications sitting on that platform, to meet any and all business requirements.

At Enabling, we understand that a Warehouse Management System, or WMS, is a key part of the supply chain and primarily aims to control the movement and storage of materials within a warehouse and process the associated transactions, including shipping, receiving, put-away and picking. The Warehouse Management Systems also direct and optimise stock put-away based on real-time information about the status of bin utilisation.
Warehouse Management Systems often utilise Auto ID Data Capture (AIDC) technology, such as barcode scanners, mobile computers, wireless LANs and potentially Radio-frequency identification (RFID) to efficiently monitor the flow of products. Once data has been collected, there needs to be either a batch synchronisation or a real-time wireless transmission to a central database.
Our solutions provide useful reports about the status of goods in the warehouse. Our Warehouse Management Systems provide a set of computerised procedures to handle the receipt of stock and returns into a warehouse facility, model and manage the logical representation of the physical storage facilities (e.g. racking etc.), manage the stock within the facility and enable a seamless link to order processing and logistics management in order to pick, pack and ship product out of the facility.
Our Warehouse Management System (WMS) will control the movement and storage of materials within a warehouse – you might even describe it as the legs at the end-of-the line which automates the store, traffic and shipping management.Interested? Let's talk.
Faster inventory turns - A WMS can reduce lead times by limiting inventory movement and improving the accuracy of inventory records, thereby supporting an IT environment. As a result, the need for safety stock is reduced, which increases inventory turnover and working capital utilisation.
More efficient use of available warehouse space - In addition to reducing safety-stock requirements, a WMS can often increase available warehouse space by more efficiently locating items in relation to receiving, assembly, packing, and shipping points. This increased efficiency can both improve productivity and lower inventory holding costs significantly.
Reduction in inventory paperwork - Implementation of a real-time WMS can significantly reduce the paperwork traditionally associated with warehouse operations, as well as ensure a timely and accurate flow of inventory and information. Receiving reports, pick tickets, move tickets, packing lists, etc., which are typically maintained as hard copies, can all be maintained electronically.
Improved cycle counting - Companies can use WMS to capture relevant data (eg frequency of movement, specific locations, etc.) to systematically schedule personnel for cycle counts. Such cycle counts not only can improve the accuracy of inventory records for planning purposes, but also can eliminate or reduce the need for complete, costly physical inventories.
Reduced dependency on warehouse personnel - Implementing a comprehensive WMS facilitates standardisation of inventory movements, picking methods, and inventory locations. This standardisation helps to minimise reliance on informal practices, resulting in reduced training costs and lower error rates.
Enhanced customer service - By streamlining processes from order to delivery, companies can more accurately determine product availability and realistic delivery dates. A WMS can automatically identify and release back-ordered inventory and also can reduce returns as a result of increased shipment accuracy.
Improved labour productivity - A WMS helps optimise material flow, typically by incorporating several inventory picks into one or by "cross docking". Cross docking is a process that routes incoming shipments to the location closest to the outbound shipping dock, thereby reducing warehouse handling.
Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems are an integrated information system that encompasses most business activities, linking external and internal information across the business from:
Enabling has several ERP Systems to choose from.

Lower Costs – By adding an effective SCM system to a business, the added global efficiency can lead to lower costs of raw materials. This system efficiently plans for materials to be brought to your company from the lowest cost provider possible and at just the right time to ensure there is no excess or deficiency in the material. A SCM system can improve your company's relationship with vendors so that there are opportunities to cut costs like through a volume discount.
Improved Collaboration – A SCM system wired into the latest software allows you to know the position your raw materials and your finished products are in by tracking both your suppliers and your distributors. These companies can also track where you are at in receiving or sending those materials. This knowledge can keep relationships between these businesses strong. This system often includes the development of reports on how the chain of goods progresses from supplier through to the distributor. These reports help your businesses to determine potential areas of improvement.
Cycle Times – The cycle time can be defined as the time it takes your business to turn over a product from raw materials, give it to your distributor to sell and then make enough money to purchase new raw products to start the cycle over. If at any point it takes too long to obtain these raw materials, production may have to stop which will slow down your organisation. A SCM system improves cycle times and ensures that raw materials are provided when your business needs them so that you never have to stop production.
Response to Conflict – Unfortunately, a business cannot always run smoothly and there are a number of factors that can lead to problems in the production of a product. If an issue occurs with the suppliers of your company, you may have to change how you produce your product. If the distributor goes out of business, you will have to find another way to sell the product. A SCM system lets your company better cope with problems at either side of the production spectrum. You can quickly and easily figure out a response to the problem instead of being surprised by it at a later time.

Having one central database with real-time visibility of orders, stock and customer dispatch details are key for any successful eCommerce software solution. Customer orders flow directly into the Enterprise Resourcing Planning (ERP) System from the website, where they are checked and then sent to the warehouse via Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) for dispatch. When the warehouse ships each order, the ERP System is notified via EDI and an invoice generated. No more manual processing, duplicated data entry or double checking. The two-way flow of information means information is always up to date. Invoicing and shipping details, including tracking information, are displayed in the customer’s online account.
Enabling gives retail trading partners an intelligent way to manage and fulfil orders via our Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) solutions. We can assist with the design and implementation of your industry's repository of EDI transaction maps and POS data from leading retailers, grocers and distributors, ensuring greater reliability, faster implementations, extensive supply chain visibility and insight for customers.
