Frequently asked questions you may have about Triumph ERP Software for your business
Triumph ERP customers range in size from single store operators to large publicly listed national and international organisations. From 1 to 100 users, Triumph ERP is designed to grow with your needs. The comprehensive nature of Triumph ERP, with over 36 functional business modules, makes it appealing to a wide range of industries including retailers, wholesaler and distribution, manufacturers, mining, food services, transport and logistics, mining, import and export, engineering and construction, health and medical, professional practices, not-for-profits and agriculture.
Triumph ERP is specifically designed for businesses that have grown past their current software package and now rely on an employed workforce rather than being owner operated and managed. Entry level accounting packages often see companies working off numerous spreadsheets to reconcile inventory, manual systems to control orders and processes, have a lack of control and real management information, and slow response times.
Triumph ERP is modular in design allowing you to fully integrate different business functions as your business grows. You simply start off with the Standard Base Pack modules, including General Ledger, Debtors, Creditors, Inventory, Bank Reconciliation and EFT Payments then simply add one or more of the remaining fully integrated 36 Triumph ERP modules that is relevant to your business needs. All modules totally integrate to allow you to manage every aspect of your business, but is still simple and intuitive to use.
Real time date-based postings to all ledgers will provide you with a complete and accurate picture of your financial transactions at all times. With minimal clicks, you can easily access a complete client data base, find a quote, produce a sales order, pull stock and email an invoice and this is just the start.
With Triumph ERP, you have asset management, comprehensive sales-order, purchase-order and job costing processing cycles, with integrated inventory, providing complete consolidated management reporting of all the company processes. Triumph ERP is a cost effective entry level ERP software system to manage all your business processes either on Cloud or On Premise.
This list highlights some of the difference you’d expect to find with Triumph ERP fully integrated software system:
- Inventory control – the ability to manage inventory levels in a business that has open customer orders and back-orders, open purchase orders with suppliers, fluctuating levels of demand, and variable lead times by product / supplier.
- Business Processes – the level of functionality supports complex business processes rather than just recording accounting entries. Back to back ordering is a case in point. Automatic purchasing can be generated from sales orders, point of sale, stock transfers and inventory reorder reports.
- Multiple Stores and Warehouses – allow you to control stock movements, goods in transit, inquire on stock holdings and get consolidated reports at the push of a button.
- Transaction Volumes – Triumph ERP has been designed for bigger multi-user environments where large databases and high volumes of transaction do not slow the system down a great deal, regardless of how many people are logged on.
- Data Security – in larger organisations it is important to have strong security restrictions and auditing controls. You don’t want any employee changing transactions after they’ve been entered and printed.
- Fully Integrated – all Triumph ERP’s business modules fully integrate with each other when plugged in, including Point of Sale and multi branch/stores.
- Multiple Divisions – running multiple divisions through a single database/company has some real advantages (being able to share information, allocation of expenses, automatic inter-division loans, consolidated reporting etc.). Being able to restrict user access to a nominated division is also an important security aspect.
- Job Costing – for those that require it true job costing is essential. Perpetual WIP, job budgeting, job quoting, ongoing jobs, internal jobs, flexible cost plus margin rules, purchase commitments, selective invoicing, income in advance, bill of material link, detailed reporting and grouping. These are just a few of Triumph ERP’s Job Costing features.
- Depth of Features – expect to see many more features in all business modules. This includes Point of Sale, Sales Order Processing, General Ledger, Sales Analysis and Debtors. Debtors features include; Settlement Discounts, Retention, Parent/Children Accounts, Sales Alerts, Delivery Addresses, Multiple Control Accounts, Financial Charges and more.
Our product range includes powerful comprehensive solutions that fully integrate with each other. The core of each product is made up of discrete business modules that can be purchased individually or as a set:
- Core Financial Business Management Suite – control all business aspects related to customers, suppliers, inventory and general accounting; including single or multi branch operations.
- Job Costing /Quoting Manager – from multi-million dollar projects to small service jobs, Triumph ERP provides comprehensive costing information to make confident business decisions.

Triumph is a Microsoft Windows application designed to run under professional editions, or higher, of Windows 7, Windows 8/8.1 and Windows 10. Five users and above it is recommended the database component should be installed on a Windows Server such as Windows Server 2012 or Windows Server 2016. Triumph is also supported under Windows Terminal Services and Citrix. 64 bit Windows and server operating systems are fully supported.
Triumph has a very light footprint so it will work fine on relatively modest hardware configurations. Anything that is rated as a business machine for the above operating systems, and number of users, would be fine. A minimum network speed of 100MB is required with 1000MB network speed recommended.
Yes, but not directly. You need to have a Windows Server on the network, either physically or running as a virtual machine server, that you can run Terminal Services and Triumph on. You then run a Terminal Services client on the Mac to give you access to the Triumph application. With the Macs and Windows Server 2016 this can be as seamless as having a Triumph icon on your desktop.

It is a testament to the flexibility, power and reliability of Triumph that our uses range from single store operators to large publicly listed national and international companies. As your business grows not only can you seamlessly add on additional modules, as and when required, you can also add additional users one at a time. There are also a large number of powerful features within each module that you can enable when the business requires. For example some of the features you can turn on in Debtors include: Settlement Discounts, Retention, Parent/Children Accounts, Sales Alerts, Delivery Addresses, Multiple Control Accounts, and Financial Charges etc.
Yes, depending on your requirements Triumph has two ways of handling this. The first is Multi-Location Stock, which allows the handling of stock to be split across any number of locations or stores. In this way sales and cost of goods sold are recorded against a store, purchases can be done at the store level or at the head office/warehouse and transferred out or between the stores. At any point, you can instantly see the stock quantities at all the stores, even from Point of Sale.
Multi-Division is the other way of doing this. It is more encompassing than Multi-Location Stock, in that it applies to all modules, not just Inventory. For example, each division/branch has its own chart of accounts. Automatic loan journals, to individual loan accounts, are made between divisions to keep them in balance. Access to different divisions is restricted and consolidated reports can be produced from head office. Likewise BAS, reports can be produced individually or consolidated based on the divisions ABN. Sub-ledger accounts, like those in Debtors, Creditors and Job Costing, can be locked to a particular division or be available as a corporate account. This powerful module effectively allows you to run multiple autonomous business entities in the one database. For remote stores/branches we recommend Microsoft Windows Terminal Services, or for larger organisations with more than 30 stores, Citrix.
Yes. Although Triumph is predominantly a Windows based application, a number of the more “Mass Consumption” type functions have a web interface. These include our B2B eCommerce Module, Agents Consignment Stock, Web Requisitions Module and Web Timesheet Entry. These web interfaces are directly and securely linked to the back end financial system. This means that all the business rules on the back end are the same on the front end. More importantly it means that the web interface is always a direct reflection of the data on the back end.
- B2B eCommerce – allows your customers, in a secure way, to enquire on stock, create orders and quotes online, check the status of outstanding orders, reprint invoices and statements, and enquire on their account in general.
- Web Requisitions – allow engineers and technicians to requisition parts and equipment while working remotely on jobs. The web interface allows this to be done 24/7 and from anywhere. For security purposes these requisitions must be approved before the parts are shipped.
- Agents Consignment Stock – Enables companies to easily manage stock they have consigned to agents. It allows you to know precisely what stock you have with what agents and what the value of this stock is. This is all done through a clean, easy to use, web interface that is directly connected to Triumph; empowering your agents to be more involved and directly connected to your company.
- Web Timesheet Entry – allows any number of employees to record their weekly, job related, timesheets online. Not only is this a much more efficient way of capturing time, it is also more accurate. Ideal for companies in the consulting and services industry. N.B. Not yet released.
- Mobile Scanning – Mobile Ordering, Paperless Picking, Mobile Sales & Ordering.
- Seamless integration with Starshipit “Australia’s most trusted integrated shipping and tracking software”. Starshipit will automatically work out who best to send the goods with, and at the best possible price. It will allow you to print the delivery labels and manifest, and at the same time update the Sales Orders in Triumph with the actual freight company and consignment note number. This will save you money, make them more efficient and professional, and allows your business to grow.
- Online credit card processing In this online age, we now have the ability to take credit card payments over the phone without an EFTPOS reader. The credit card details are entered in Triumph and processed online, with an immediate response from you bank verifying if the payment is accepted or not.
- SMS product pickup notifications Automatically SMS customers when goods have arrived instore and are ready for collection. Powerful templates allow you to fully customise the messages being send. Including a template for an order that is complete, a partial order pickup, and a partial order that is now complete. Making you more efficient and professional to your customers.
Yes. Triumph ERP uses Crystal Reports as the main reporting tool. Crystal is arguably the world’s most widely used desktop report writer. Before you can customise a report you will need the Crystal Designer. Alternatively, reports can be customised by your Triumph Accredited Partner on your behalf. New reports can also be created from scratch and simply added to Triumph ERP’s menu security system.
Yes. Basically everything that Triumph ERP offers has come at some stage from the suggestions of our customers. If it is something that will enhance the package, and it’s not a unique one-off feature, then we will consider your suggestions. Based on priority and demand each new version is packed with user driven enhancements. We are also happy to provide quotations for guaranteed changes, subject to suitability. In addition to this many 3rd party programs have been written for and interface with Triumph ERP. This is possible because the structure of our database is open, i.e. we publish a Database Schema, and the availability of an ODBC link. ODBC is a Microsoft acronym for Open Data Base Connectivity. It basically allows any Windows ODBC compliant program to connect directly to your data source, e.g. Excel, Access, Word etc. Crystal Reports is the world’s most popular database reporting too. It is compatible with Triumph ERP. It allows you to produce superb looking management reports with colours, logo’s and graphs. Its integration with Triumph makes customising invoice layouts and standard reports a breeze. The CONNX ODBC driver is what you need to get direct access to your financial information from another Windows based management application like Excel, MS Access and other .NET applications. Contact Triumph for further details.
A major new version of Triumph ERP is released approximately every 12 – 18 months. Customers with Software Maintenance cover or a Monthly Software Plan are entitled to a copy of the latest version for free. Minor updates for small enhancements and bug fixes are available on a regular basis, as a cumulative update, from our web site.
Recognising the importance of being able to share your financial information with your accountant, we provide a free copy of Triumph to these accountants. It is then a simple matter of emailing or transferring a copy of your Triumph ERP database to them.
