Exact Synergy Enterprise Configurator – Sneak Preview

Written by Toine Hurkmans on . Posted in Exact Synergy

The Exact Synergy Enterprise Configurator is a standard toolset of Exact Synergy Enterprise for consultants to help them implementing solutions for specific business processes of our customers. The Exact Synergy Enterprise Configurator will be a part of the standard Exact Synergy Enterprise software and will require no specific license to activate.

For customers it means that Exact Synergy Enterprise will better meet their business needs and fit within their core activities and business processes, without requiring a customization/custom solution. Exact Synergy Enterprise will therefore bring more value to your business.

The key feature of the Exact Synergy Enterprise Configurator is the ability to add more maintenance cards and/or extend standard maintenance cards like items/projects/accounts/persons, etc. so information that customers need to run their business can be registered, accessed, used in processes and reports.

Some other features are:

  • Creating a menu, so a configuration becomes an additional module for Exact Synergy Enterprise
  • Configurable maintenance cards using drag-and-drop
  • Add buttons to maintenance cards so direct actions are possible, and to the new maintenance cards to extend standard maintenance cards
  • Distinction in types, similar to account types, resource types etc. Including different maintenance cards per type
  • Status-flow, allowing control of the status of information as part of a business process
  • Define access rights so privacy and security can be guaranteed

Please watch our sneak preview video, to see the highlights of the Exact Synergy Enterprise Configurator.

We plan to have the Exact Synergy Enterprise Configurator general available in December 2011. Interested?  More information will follow soon and meanwhile, feel free to send me an email or please comment on this post.

      @Jeroen: Just the sample is about asset management.
      During our co-development of the tool with stakeholders we also have other solutions that we plan to deliver to customers.
      For instance solution for quality management for manufacturing, a training solution and a marketing solution.
      So the tool can be used to configure whatever you like / need 😉

    Do we need to have a specific batch version to use this functionality?

    The configurator will be available in december as an update for release 247. A final date will be announced end of November.

    The configurator will be part of the standard Exact Synergy Enterprise product, but only in a ‘development’ environment. A product environment will not allow configuration to avoid risks of intervening with current business.

    Very nice solution!

    Is it also possible to use the new cards/items in workflows?

    It will be possible to add fields to workflow requests so the entities/cards are also available in workflow as references.

    Using buttons in the cards it will also be possible to directly create a request/workflow from the cards.

    Is Exact Synergy Enterprise Configurator generally available? Do I understand right it will be available for customers as well without any additional fee or license?

    Thanks,

    The Exact Synergy Enterprise Configurator is still in controlled release. We are currently finalizing out pilot cases and decided to set up training for consultants first before releasing the tool. We expect to finalize this in a few weeks from now.

    Exact will only train and support consultants to use the tools. The tool is shipped with ESE and requires no addtional license fee to be used by consultants at customer sites.
    Reason only to support consultants is that we consider the tool to be a solution implementation tool.

    I have a question about this one:

    “Add buttons to maintenance cards so direct actions are possible, and to the new maintenance cards to extend standard maintenance cards”

    When setting up the URL for the Action how can I reflect to the current entity’s ID? Example URL: http://server/test.aspx?ID=currentproject

    How can I set it up to be the current Project’s ID behind the “ID=”?

    Thanks.
