Real-time Transactions

With ECi Next Generation Maytech, every transaction is processed when it happens. That means no end-of-day or end-of-month processes are required—not only saving you the trouble of tedious month-end tasks, but also providing fail-safe updates.

Freedom to Choose Any Operating System

Java-based coding lets ECi Next Generation Maytech run on Microsoft Windows®, Mac®, or Linux® giving you the freedom to choose the computers that best suit your business.

Robust Multi-Location Management

Even if your business has only one location, your software should support every step of your future growth. With role-based permissions for system access and powerful tools for multi-location inventory, GL and more, ECi Next Generation Maytech has you covered.

Unlimited Scalability

From 1 store to 100, from 5 terminals to 5000.

Ultra-Flexible Servers for Top Performance

From server clustering for load balancing, to server grouping for high volume request processing, nothing is beyond your reach with ECi Next Generation Maytech's unique n-tier technology. This new enhancement will make a dramatic impact on your overall productivity—and higher productivity is higher profits in the making.

Multi-Lingual, Multi-Monetary Compatibility

No other system offers the international versatility of ECi Next Generation Maytech. Compatible with multiple languages, currencies, exchange rates and time zones—ECi Next Generation Maytech is the system of choice for globalized business.

Perfect Visibility Through Drill Downs

With inquiries and source documents all on one screen, it’s easier than ever to perform account audits, execute balancing processes and make informed decisions.

Advanced Security Features

In a country where fraud and theft cost employers over $70B annually, security is critical to overall success.
With unique features like enhanced login protection, centralized security management, role-based security permissions and record-level database encryption, your business will never be at risk again with ECi Next Generation Maytech.

Customizable User Interface

ECi Next Generation Maytech lets you customize system colors, shortcuts, icons, fonts, menus and more. Change ECi Next Generation to fit your company’s brand for a professional look that will make a definite impact on your customers, or to suit individual preference.

And beyond appearance, the fully graphical interface gives you complete control over layout: fluid-movable columns, custom menus, notes and custom fields even in reports—all for your ease of use. The result is an efficient workflow that can save your staff hundreds of man hours in the long run.

Use Your Current Hardware and Database for Minimal Investment

ECi Next Generation Maytech's broad compatibility means you can probably continue using hardware and databases from your current business system—a savings of thousands that can make your ECi Maytech ROI even more dramatic. However, if your system is more than 3 years old, you will need to update.

Advanced Reporting

With the industry’s most advanced reporting, ECi Next Generation Maytech can be the silver bullet for so many business goals: saving at-risk accounts, selling more to each customer, getting the most out of your inventory, etc. ECi Next Generation Maytech even lets you save and retrieve report parameters—access your most important data without all the manual setup.
