Companies are still undecided about migrating to the cloud, because the cloud security related opinions are very divided, making cloud's image quite insecure.

SocrateCloud ERP - the complete solution for distribution companies

Date: 06-10-2015
Author: Alina Răfoi

A distributor’s activity seems as simple as buying and selling products. Yet, this simplicity is more complicated than it might seem. Distribution is a continuous fire activity, with constant need of stock and client orders information.

Daily analysis is needed on staff performance, receiving orders and collecting payments. Stocks need to be analysed daily, as well as supplier orders. Similarly, distributors have to analyze sales by divisions or brands, in order to find the best products combination to generate a maximum of profit. An income and expenses review must be an on-going activity. There are several costs to be monitored: handling charges, storage, car park costs, as well as salaries, contributions and other taxes. All these are the “ingredients” of an average day in a distribution company. Other specific issues to be addressed are increasing billing efficiency through information quality and human error elimination.

Some key-elements such as inventory tracking and its migration rate, supply and on-time deliveries are critical in distribution and, if not managed properly, they might cause trouble. This usually happens when a poorly trained sales force carelessly manages a client-product mix review.

Did it happen to send an email accidentally?

Now in Gmail you have the option to undo a sent email, in maximum 30 seconds after you already sent it. Gmail launched this feature in march 2009, but it was hidden, in “Labs”, as an experimental option.

Why would you like to undo a sent email?

When you send a no-take-backs email —to a wrong address or accidental reply-all or you forget to attach a file, you have to send an excuse mail and afterwards to send another mail with the right address or the attached file or the right text.

Meet the “UNDO SEND” feature, now available in Gmail for all users, that gives you a 30-second window to "undo" sending an outgoing email.
