Business Alerts ____________________________________________________________________
Info-Alert Business Alerts module is an easy-to-use alert functionality for the AccountMate's flagship products, AccountMate for SQL and Express.
Customers can use the many pre-defined alerts to send emails to specific individuals or groups that need to be aware of a situation that has just occurred or a reminder to take some action. These email alerts can be administered to send an alert to one specific person or to a specified group of people. No longer do people have to read reports and manually send off an email. Proper alerts can be scheduled by an Administrator who names the appropriate addressee and then when a condition is met, emails get fired off automatically.
Alert Manager is actually more than just an alert generator! An alert can send an email notification but also can initiate an action to take place. An example would be if inventory of a specific item is falling below a prescribed level it can alert the appropriate person and also generate a PO to reorder a supply.
There are currently over 30 pre-defined alerts that come standard in the Alert Manager for AccountMate product. These are powerful and valuable tools for an organization. More than 90% of these standard pre-defined alerts have the flexibility to be tailored. Examples of parameters that can be tailored would be some of the ranges (i.e. list of accounts that are over 30 days overdue or 45 days overdue or 60 days overdue, etc.) and to whom the alerts are emails (i.e. if ABC Company's account is overdue by 30 days, then Mary Smith gets emailed; if DEF Company is overdue by 45 days, then Fred Jones gets emailed; if any account is over 45 days, then the President Amy Jones gets emailed., etc.) More than one parameter can be set for a single alert function.
In addition to the standard Alert-Manager for the AccountMate module, there is an available development Tool Kit that must be used to modify or add additional alerts.
Founded in 1984, AccountMate develops and markets fully modifiable business accounting software. Systems range from single user versions to those that support over hundreds of users simultaneously. AccountMate software is available for local or cloud installation. It is distributed exclusively through a worldwide channel of authorized solution providers.
