Office 365, VOIP and Infoplex

Software has changed considerably in the 20 plus years we’ve been in business. In truth, it’s changed beyond all recognition. No more boxes with a succession of 3.5 inch discs to install a program; no more (multiple) CDs to install Microsoft Office; and no more complicated PBX telephone systems. Today, it’s all out there, up there and in the cloud.

That’s why Infoplex is looking at ways in which to help you make an informed choice about your software needs. As you know, we use the Microsoft Office suite of applications quite a bit (CSV imports anybody?) Over the coming months we’re seeing how best to integrate Office 365 – the latest version of Microsoft’s productivity suite – with MultiTAS and TASBooks. What does that mean? Well, to begin with, it may mean no more importing and exporting via CSV. It may mean that with a press of a button the data appears in either Excel or in MultiTAS as required. It may mean that reports are generated in Microsoft Word and populated with new graphical content. And it may mean that for the first time MultiTAS may be offered with a CRM (customer relationship management) facility.

But there’s more to it than just that. We’re looking at VOIP communications systems too. Instead of an old-fashioned telephone, a complicated PBX, multiple lines and extortionate bills, how about a phone system that works via the internet instead? How about a phone system that connects with MultiTAS so that when you click on a customer’s number it calls them directly and makes sure you have all of the information to hand?

That’s just some of the work in the pipeline over the coming months as we look to bring you new services that complement MultiTAS and Infoplex. Feel free to let us know what you think!

Apex Fire streamline with MultiTAS

Apex Fire have joined the ranks of satisfied Infoplex customers and are now taking full advantage of our efficiency and time-management solutions.

Apex is Ireland’s leading provider of processes and systems for fire detection, protection, training and fire safety consultancy. They export their invoices from their Advanced Field Solutions software and they are now able to import them into TASBooks with our MultiTAS solution.

This has offered them significant benefits such as eliminating the double‐ and/or re-keying of data and doing away with double‐keying errors.

Ireland-based Caraden Construction adopts TASLink

Another company with in-house development skills has taken advantage of TASLink, the leading application for real-time bi-directional TASBooks integration, to streamline their accounting processes.

The Ireland-based Caraden Construction have worked with Infoplex, Europe’s leading TASBooks developer, to develop further their in-house Sales Order Processing system. Using the real-time features of TASLink, Caraden have integrated their custom-built IT systems with TASBooks.

Using the Infoplex TASLink solution has enabled Caraden to integrate our systems with our TASBooks accounts… in turn allowing us to post our invoices from our bespoke system directly to  TASBooks in real time.

Yet another example of having the ability to custom-develop TASBooks’ integration with other applications using TASLink.

Further integration for TASBooks

We’ve integrated TASBooks with yet another great software system – Bgate Smart Business

Based in the Republic of Ireland, Bgate is a B2B e-procurement platform designed to streamline the buying and selling processes that take place each between businesses from all sectors of the economy.

Bgate says:

By utilising software from Infoplex, we are now able to integrate seamlessly with TASBooks.

Here at Infoplex, we would be keen to talk with other users of TASBooks who are interested in e-purchase ordering and e-invoicing systems. Please contact George Houliotis at Infoplex on +44 (0)1592 598100 for more details.

 

Portable Handheld Terminal Integration to TASBooks

The Irish company Chef in a Box has joined the ranks of TASBooks users that have implemented portable handheld terminal functionality into their business to ensure that their customers’ experience is smooth and trouble free.

In conjunction with ONM Systems we are continuing to develop new ways to integrate portable handheld terminals with TASBooks to ensure we meet all of our customers’ requirements.

Infoplex brings TASBooks to Eureka MoveIT

MoveIT – the leading transport management application from Eureka Software – now integrates with TASBooks. Infoplex has worked alongside Eureka and its customers to integrate the functionality and tools of TASBooks with the flexibility and management tools of MoveIT.

Infoplex and Isys collaborate on GateHOUSE and TAS integration

Infoplex is delighted to announce a long-term partnership agreement with Isys Interactive Systems. Under this partnership, Infoplex has integrated TAS with GateHOUSE – the leading recycling and waste management application developed by Isys.

GateHOUSE can now retrieve customer data from TAS directly and import it into its CRM system. This eliminates re-keying data and helps to monitor account and credit limits.

MultiTAS Bankstream launched by Infoplex

A new edition of MultiTAS for use with Bankstream is coming next month.

MultiTAS Bankstream brings greater financial management and transaction controls to TASBooks. It gives users real-time access to transaction data and streamlines workflows.

BENEFIT OF MULTITAS BANKSTREAM
