OTTO: How to get started? It’s easy!

The evaluation process for business operations improvements and related software is normally fairly long because it takes time to first understand the software and then to analyze how it will be used. However, how the software works won't truly be understood until it is actually functioning in either a live environment or a simulation of that environment using a reasonably complete test database. 

In order to overcome this challenge we use the following process:

  • Telephone meeting to discuss needs.
  • Webinar to determine common understanding.
  • Load data into OTTO for live demo.
  • No-obligation trial of the software.

Your only obligation is to supply resources to evaluate OTTO's capabilities. This approach allows you to see exactly how OTTO operates in your specific environment and what benefits you can gain. Several of our customers have actually realized sufficient benefits during the trial-period to justify their purchase of OTTO. Best of all, this evaluation approach offers you extremely low cost and low risk with the potential for high payback in a short period of time.

BPCS/LX Tip of the Week: Purchase Order Receive All Processing

With this enhancement the Purchase Receipts screens are optionally shown with the quantity and weight fields populated with the open value on the purchase order. The screens are now populated with the open value and if the open value is the same as the value received, the user can simply accept the line. The Receive All field on the PUR550D1-01 screen determines whether the receipt lines are populated with the open value. A system parameter controls the Receive All default value but the default value can be overridden.  

If this option is selected, the user does not have to enter the open quantity or weight. If the purchase order receipt has many lines, this option saves time and prevents errors.
