Written by Michiel Dorjee on . Posted in Exact Globe, Exact Synergy

After an extensive controlled release phase, product update 394 for Exact Globe and Exact Synergy is now generally available and can be downloaded by all our customers with an active maintenance contract. Only customers with custom solutions should first make sure that their custom solutions are made compatible before updating to product update 394.

As you might know we have developed an integration with Dun & Bradstreet, the world’s leading source of commercial information and insight on businesses. For this integration we created the new module E-Risk Management, which will continue in controlled release till further notice. If you are interested in integrating the Dun & Bradstreet services with Exact Globe, please contact your local Exact Software account manager.

When we announced the start of the controlled release phase we also already introduced to you the other new module E-Charges and Discounts, we already told you about Blanket Sales Orders and we already mentioned several other projects we have completed for this product update. A detailed overview of all new and enhanced functionality can now be found in the release notes. Below you can also find four movies in which Richard Smits and Michiel van Rooijen, both product managers for Exact Globe, show you four new features in Exact Globe.

Exact introduces E-Risk Management for Exact Globe

Written by Michiel Dorjee on . Posted in Exact Globe, Exact Synergy

E-Risk Management provides real-time data integration with Dun & Bradstreet (D&B), the world’s leading source of commercial information and insight on businesses. The movie below shows you how this integration between Exact Globe and D&B works and what value it offers. 

The aim of E-Risk management is to improve your decision-making and the management of your business relationships at both local and international levels. With this tool, the finance and procurement departments in your company can retrieve comprehensive business and financial information to enable more intelligent credit and purchasing decisions. The sales and marketing departments can also create new accounts based on D&B information, thereby initiating customer life cycles with correct and complete information. They can also optimize their marketing efforts through an increased understanding of customer at both local and international levels.

All information retrieved from D&B is stored directly in your Exact administration. It is linked to the account via the D&B® D-U-N-S® (Data Universal Numbering System) number, which is a unique, nine-digit identification number for each physical location of a business worldwide. This allows you to share the information within your company, perform analyses or trigger events based on key performance indicators, for example by using E-Report or Exact Event Manager.

With E-Risk Management you can reduce bad debts, discover sales opportunities, and generally avoid wasting time and money on business activities based on incorrect account data. You also benefit from having a structured electronic data instead of hard copy documents.

All it takes to get started is a D&B user ID and password from your local D&B office (www.dnb.com) and the module E-Risk Management.

This functionality is available as per product update 394 of Exact Globe. Product update 242 for Exact Synergy Enterprise will also introduce an integration with D&B services.
