Exact Globe Next in two variants

Written by Michiel Dorjee on . Posted in Exact Globe

About two weeks ago at the Exact Live ’12 event I gave live demos of Exact Globe Next.  Next to the very positive feedback I received from customers, I got quite a few questions about our product offering. A particularly popular topic was the difference between the two variants we offer: Exact Globe Next and Exact Globe Next ‘with extended functionality’. Since these are not different products, but do offer different functionality, I want to make the distinction clear here.


Exact Globe Next

For any of our readers who do not know our product Exact Globe, it’s our powerful and innovative ERP software solution for international SMB companies. All the ins and outs can be found on the Exact website.

Earlier this year we decided to change the name Exact Globe to Exact Globe Next. The name Exact Globe Next is purely the result of a name change. You can think of it as a rebranding, with no change to the product itself. Existing Exact Globe customers still have the same product; it’s just that we now refer to it as Exact Globe Next.


Exact Globe Next
‘with extended functionality’

Exact Globe Next ‘with extended functionality’ is a different version of the same product. Compared to the standard version described above, there are three main differences:

1.  Integration of Exact solutions

This version of Exact Globe Next offers one menu which functions as a shell to combine and give access to several solutions: Exact Globe Next, Exact Synergy Enterprise, Exact Event Manager and integration with SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS). Combining all these products into one provides you with a complete solution with which you can effectively and proactively run your business, but also it enables you to see which direction your business is heading. You will gain more control over your company and processes, and stay on top of your business. Next to that, it also improves collaboration in your company by adding the possibility to use a limited number of workflows.

2.  A different look-and-feel

We offer a different look-and-feel for a better user experience and an even better match of the different products. We have ensured that the menus are recognizable when compared to the original products so you can easily start working.

3.  Dashboard reports

In the solution we offer a set of six real-time dashboard reports out-of-the-box: Management, Sales, Costs, Results, Liquidity, and Risk. The dashboards give you the insights you need. You can view them in outline form, or zoom in for more detail. You’ll know exactly what’s going on in the area you are interested in.

     

     

The (hardware) specifications of Exact Globe Next ‘with extended functionality’ are different than the specifications of the standard Exact Globe Next. If you would like to know what updating to Exact Globe Next ‘with extended functionality’ means for your company, you can contact our sales department or your Exact partner. Our contact details can be found on the Exact website. The terms and conditions of your Exact Globe Next maintenance contract also automatically cover the variant ‘with extended functionality’.

    To be honest, as a Globe user, I think the distinction between ‘Next’ and ‘Next extended’ is really vague at first sight.

    I understand that Globe is renamed to Globe Next after an update, but why not kept that named as Globe, and named the extended version Globe Next?

    Hi Stephan. Many thanks for your feedback. In the basics it is the same product. For that reason it is decided to use the same name. I can imagine that the name change might be confusing. Especially if you are used to the name Exact Globe for many years.

    Vincent, maybe in basics it is, but in real it isn’t. There are differences between the two ‘products’ so I agree with Stepan that this will be confusing. In fact you have different options between the two ‘product’ because of the different layer. So define two clear names for both that everybody knows about which version of Exact Globe you are talking.

    Hi Maha,

    A customer who already has an Exact Globe Next license can start working with the ‘Extended Functionality’ variant. The customer gets a different product license.

    Please note that Exact Globe Next ‘with extended functionality’ has different system requirements. You can contact our Sales department (http://www.exact.com/exact-worldwide) or your local Exact partner for further assistance.
