Triumph 6.2 Release: Nine amazing new features to help your business thrive

Are you ready for a new release

If you’re a business owner or manager, you’ll know all about the benefits of maintaining technology. It is imperative for businesses keep up with enhancements, because the reality is, that if your company is dealing with outdated systems, you may may be missing out on business opportunities. This is why Triumph Business Systems has been working hard at improving Triumph ERP, and after nearly two years of hard work, we wish to introduce to you the latest version of our software.

Triumph 6.2!

This latest version of our Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software will offer you newfound abilities, and introduce you to newly requested business modules which can make managing your small or medium-size business so much easier and will encourage your business to thrive in 2020.

This update is by far the most comprehensive and powerful version released to date and we are excited for you to try it.

To help you learn more about what is available with the latest update, we have listed our top nine features of Triumph 6.2, and show you how this software is beneficial to your business.


Pro Tip: Already got Triumph 6.2 and want to master its capabilities? Check out our What’s New Document and take control of your business.

1.  Take steps to becoming a paperless office with Documents on Transactions

paperless for 6.2

Triumph ERP now has the ability to attach documents to various transactions and optionally email them with the business form, thus removing the need to keep a paper copy. This ability allows you to link documents to transactions and is a fantastic new feature that will assist you in becoming a paperless office. Transactions which now have the ability to attach documents include:

  • Debtor Invoice
  • Debtor Batch Invoice
  • Sales Orders and Quotes
  • Creditor Invoice
  • Purchase Order Invoice
  • Purchase Order Progress Invoice
  • Purchase Order Combined Invoice
  • Request Managed Stock
  • Receipt Managed Stock
  • Bank Reconciliation.

2.  Save yourself time by making your system work while you rest with Background Task Scheduler

background task for 6.2

To help you save time with your reporting, it’s background task scheduler to the rescue. Background Task Scheduler is the new option where you specify all the things you want to run in the background. By using the background task scheduler, you can instantly gain the ability to run key reports overnight and have them automatically emailed to you and your team ready to review each morning, or at the start of the week.

3.  Keep track of your supplier purchase order invoices by parking them until the goods have arrived

online payment for 6.2

In many environments, you often receive the invoice separately from the goods, and often before you’ve actually received the goods. Think of a head office with multiple branches. You can check to see if the goods have been receipted first, and if not, put the invoice in a pile to be dealt with later. Then at some point someone has to go through the pile of invoices and see if they can now be invoiced. This becomes very time consuming and inefficient. We now allow you to enter these invoices, and park them until the goods have been received. You can then release them as required. A parked invoice does not create an invoice against the creditor or post any General Ledger journals. This does not happen until it’s released.

4.  Expand your payment processing options by taking Online Credit Card Payments, i.e. no EFTPOS reader required

credit card payment for 6.2

We now have the ability to process credit card payment in Triumph without using an EFTPOS reader. This is extremely handy when taking orders over the phone, or a customer is paying their account over the phone by credit card. The same technology is used in both the main Triumph program, as well as in eCommerce, where customers can also pay their accounts online.

5.  Improve and broaden your online eCommerce store presence and connect with your end consumer market

The eCommerce module is one of the key areas that has had significant changes. Firstly, as well as our web shop supporting Business to Business (B2B), we now also support a Business to Consumer (B2C) interface. This means that you can optionally sell direct to the public, with the purchaser not requiring a debtor account with you. This will allow anyone to visit your online web shop, place orders, and pay for them, i.e. they do not need an account or to log in. Again, this requires a suitable Online Merchant Account.

6.  Notify your customers via SMS and email when their goods are ready for collection with Pickup Notifications

Keep in touch with your customers during every step of their purchase and automatically notify customers by email or SMS when goods are ready for collection. If you would prefer to contact your customers in person, then fear not, the system can also create a phone list if you prefer to talk to them in person.

7.  Conquer all your freight management needs with a seamless, automated integration to Starshipit

Triumph ERP 6.2 now has a seamless integration with Starshipit, a leading Australian cloud-based freight management and tracking software. Based on your preferred carriers and rules, Starshipit will give you a live postage rate, book the courier pickup, and print delivery labels, manifests and any required customs documentation. It also updates your Triumph sales order documents with the carrier and consignment note number. Consignment note numbers and carries can be automatically update in Triumph’s latest version 6.2.

8.  Manage your supplier credit requests with the new Request for Credit half module

Requests for Credit is a new half module exclusive to our new version of Triumph ERP 6.2. This half-module allows you to keep track of supplier credit requests. Staffs have the ability to raise Pending Requests, which can be then processed into Requests for Credit, or alternatively Requests for Credit can be entered directly. Credit Responses, when received from the supplier, can then be entered against the Credit Requests. Anything outstanding can be easily reported on.

Some of the features include:

  • raising a pending request for credit from Point Of Sale Return and Debtor Credit Notes
  • combine multiple pending requests into individual supplier Requests For Credit
  • supplier invoice look up will return invoice number, date and price
  • keeps track of what quantity has already been returned on an invoice
  • enter a return reason for each line
  • email supplier for a return authorisation number (RMA)
  • return to stock or write off stock, if the credit is not provided by the supplier
  • deduct other charges such as freight or restocking fees etc.
  • keep track and preview what credits have been provided so far on an individual request.

9.  Send new job details directly to your service technician’s phones and allocate work priorities, with Job Mobile

As part of the new Job Scheduling module, users can now allocate a job or part of a job to service technicians. This then appears on their phone so they know exactly where they have to go and what they have to do. As well as recording time and materials, they can also take before and after photos, get the customers’ sign off and email it to them as they walk out the door.

What is ERP Software

Bigger clients are making the move to a more integrated software ERP solution.

ERP is an industry acronym for Enterprise Resource Planning. But what does that actually mean? Broadly speaking, ERP software is a platform that enables the automation and integration of a company’s core business processes. This include the core accounting, job management, inventory management, etc. In order to do this, ERP systems need to be sophisticated enough to have a complete understanding of all the aspects of the business. This is why ERP systems are generally considered the ‘next step up’ from basic accounting systems such as QuickBooks, Xero and MYOB.

The goal of ERP software is to ensure your company is successful. It is designed based on three essential fundamentals: integration, flexibility, and functionality. Let’s talk about what each of these foundations means for your business, and how it can add value to your business.

Integration

Many small businesses buy entry-level systems to manage their core financial and purchase add-ons for more specific business requirements. However, as the business grows, you may find that you rely on several different pieces of software to maintain the day-to-day running of the business.

With an ERP system, there is no need to deal with messy add-ons or spreadsheets, as it integrates all areas of business in one, easy to use system. This saves you time and effort as the bulk of the work is done by the core ERP package. ERP software allows for simpler management of business processes, whilst improving functionality with a more powerful reporting and improved business automation.

Flexibility

While basic systems can restrict the growth of a business, ERP software is designed to be flexible in order to accommodate the needs of a business now and into the future. With an ERP system you can take advantage of the modular design that allows the software to grow with your business, and incorporate comprehensive functionality that can be modified to suit your needs. A key benefit of a modular design is that you can turn on and off modules as you require them. For example, perhaps you start exporting your product overseas, and decide to add a Foreign Debtors module to your software suite, or perhaps you decide to move your business online and require an E-Commerce module. This allows the ERP system to grow at the same speed as the business, keeping costs in perspective.

Functionality

As a result of the integrated and flexible modular design, ERP systems today are functionally rich. With the ability to turn on and off modules and functions to suit the needs of the business, ERP software will never be too complex or simple to use. Furthermore, the streamlining of processes and information across the entire business will add functionality to day-to-day activities. The full integration of key areas will allow you to see the ‘big picture’, rather than having to examine each section individually when making important business decisions.

Full integration means that each area of the system speaks to each other. This provides greater detail and functionality with more powerful reporting and improved business automation. ERP software is specifically designed to help your business grow, step by step, function by function. This provides many valuable benefits such as the ability to automate certain business processes. For example the reordering of stock, running multiple branches as autonomous businesses, or getting consolidated reports at the push of a button.

Taking Your Business to the Next Level

Upgrading your business management software to an ERP system may seem like a daunting task. However, if you arm yourself with the right information you will be on your way to a successful software upgrade.
