ECI Software Solutions Releases New Version of Macola ERP

Macola 10.7—the end of “version lock,” an expanding ecosystem, and a continued focus on user experience

Dublin, OH—Thursday, April 5, 2018 Macola Software, an ECI Software Solutions company, today released Macola 10.7, the latest version of its leading Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and business management software. Macola 10.7 revolutionizes the way customers extend and customize their ERP investment, expands the Macola ecosystem with new 3rd party APIs, and doubles down on user experience.

Macola 10.7 new features and benefits

Macola 10.7 offers enhancements and updates that help to advance Macola’s main principles: visibility and control of enterprise processes; configurable views into real-time data; integration between business functions; and accessibility at any time and on any device.

The key features and benefits of Macola 10.7 include:

  1. The End of Version Lock

By creating a powerful and flexible extension layer to the platform, Macola will virtually eliminate the “version lock” that has plagued ERP systems for generations. This will revolutionize the way customers think about extending their ERP system—liberating them from the fear of upgrading.

  1. An Expanding Ecosystem

Macola 10.7 continues to expand the Macola ecosystem with yet another round of API coverage, including hundreds of new API functions available for systems integrators to use. Macola’s “expanding ecosystem” ensures visibility of real-time data and control of enterprise processes through integrated third-party apps.

  1. Doubling Down on User Experience and Streamlined Processes

Continued Focus on User Experience – focusing on the UX, 10.7 has incorporated convenience features such as “at a glance” status indicators that instantly let customer service personnel determine the status of orders. 10.7 has also redesigned one of the more complicated aspects of Macola 10—the “features and options” configurator—which has been dramatically simplified to increase speed and simplicity when getting orders into the system. Lastly, with 10.7, customers who use multiple divisions can now simply toggle between divisions without disrupting their workflow.

Streamlined Processes – to further streamline processes, such as order entry, billing selection, searching and filtering orders, the quoting and creating of credit memos has been streamlined and simplified to closer mimic the way people do their jobs.

“Macola 10.7 has further built on previous Macola 10 offerings with an eye towards simplification for our customers to automate and grow their businesses,” said Derek Ochs, director of development, Macola Software. “We’ve enhanced many processes to more closely align with the way people do their jobs. And by creating a flexible and powerful extension layer for Macola, we now offer customers the ability to add value to their ERP investment by tailoring their product to meet their specific needs, without the maintenance and upgrade headaches.”
