Soft-Tex 2012: Online trade fair for IT solution providers

Fibre2fashion, the largest global textile, apparel and fashion B2B portal is launching Soft-Tex 2012 - a 180 days long, 24x7 online information technology (IT) trade fair. This initiative from fibre2fashion will help the IT and IT enabled solution providers connect with the worldwide textile, garment, fashion and retail industry. 

Keeping itself updated with the latest in IT solutions is very crucial for the textile value-chain, considering that it is an intensive process driven industry. Soft-Tex 2012 will help the IT industry to showcase their software & solutions to a large target audience of IT service users in the global textile, clothing, fashion and retail sector. 

The beauty of an online trade fair is that, it does not come with a travel, time or money constraint. It can be accessed by anyone across the globe, either from the comfort of their home or office 24x7. The online visitors can directly access the information available related to IT products, solutions or services on display in the online expo. 

To add an icing to the cake, Soft-Tex 2012 would provide a highly effective communication tool, which would help online visitors and exhibitors to connect with each other and respond to queries raised by visitors. 

Fibre2fashion with a legacy of over 12 years and a visitor base exceeding 1.5 million per month from over 190 countries across the globe will ensure that Soft-Tex 2012 gets prime visibility among the core audience of IT solution users in the textile value-chain through marketing and promotional activities. 

The online initiative will be ably supported by a print supplement which will reach out to Chief Information Officers and Information Technology Heads in the worldwide textile, apparel, fashion and retail value-chain.

Who Can Exhibit: 
If you’re an IT solutions provider currently catering to or with plans to provide solutions and services to the worldwide textile, garment, fashion and retail sector or IT companies having software solutions like ERP, Business Intelligence Tools, POS, RFID, SCM, CRM, CAD/CAM, Dyeing & Printing, Import Export Management, Inventory Control, Production Planning and Warehouse Management solution providers. 

Why an online trade fair scores over a conventional trade fair:
The visibility of an online trade fair is 24x7, while a conventional operates as per a fixed timing. Soft-Tex will run for a period of 180 days, while conventional fairs run for a limited period, which can provide unparalleled visibility. An online trade fair has a wide geographical reach with no boundaries, whereas a conventional is more localised and boundary bound.                                                             Click here for more details

SAP ERP implementations ‘speeding up’

The speed at which enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems provider SAP can implement its software is becoming quicker, it has been claimed.

Writing for IT Business, Jeff Jedras suggested the company, which has created ERP systems such as SAP Business One, may be able to realise its aim of 100 per cent channel centricity in small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) through faster implementation in the future.

The industry expert stated that this will also become more realistic as ERP solutions continue to become cheaper and easier to install.

He reported that such advances would "allow partners to spend less time on integration, get more customers up and running and spend more time focusing on higher-value service business".

The software is sharply reducing query times and is "transforming business intelligence architectures", he added.

SAP recently announced that its SAP Business One package is being embraced worldwide, with the product becoming increasingly popular in Latin American countries.

Remote Access in Tally.ERP 9

The concept of 'remote' arose from the limitations on business owners and staff from traditional software systems that seriously restricted what could be done, when it could be initiated and by whom, from outside their offices and factories. More often than not when a business closed for the day its data was effectively locked. (The same effect when the owner went home or travelled outside the city.) The revolutionary Remote Access in Tally.ERP 9 makes regular functions available outside the physical confines of the premises.

How Remote Access works:

Imagine you need to access your data when you’re not in the office. Tally.ERP 9 Remote Access lets you field supplier calls from home (or any place else with an Internet connection), check Bank balances, view your financial commitments and check on receipts due before making a commitment to pay. It even allows you to review entries posted and make necessary corrections. Or keep personal books of accounts at a separate location and access them when it’s convenient… for office-augmenting ability, nothing beats Tally.ERP 9.

Simple. Activate in seconds :

All it requires is that you start up your company and make it available to a specific user, who can then access the data from his/her copy of Tally software (which can even be the free-of-cost Educational version) after furnishing his/her user name and password.

Bring in the specialists—access your CA:

Similar remote access can be made available to your CA, who can log in remotely and provide you with immediate consultation on tax filing, auditing, compliance etc. without the need for you to send the data or for him/her to visit your office.

• 24 x 7 access
• Full control and security
• Quick business decisions
• Better compliance

NetSuite takes advantage of SAP ERP on-demand delay

ERP provider NetSuite has introduced NetSuite for Manufacturers to take advantage of SAP's delay in fully launching its on-demand Business ByDesign ERP platform.

NetSuite's alternative on-demand offering is aimed at "light" manufacturers like apparel and electronics companies, with NetSuite specifically citing the SAP Business ByDesign delay for its introduction.

Warren Wilson, an analyst at Ovum, said, "NetSuite has targeted SAP directly in an effort to capitalise on the recent, much-publicised announcement that SAP was slowing its roll-out of Business ByDesign, that was launched in September 2007, but today is used by only about 150 customers."

SAP delayed the wider availability of its on-demand offering when it found it was becoming too expensive to deliver it to customers. On-demand software sees firms effectively rent the software on a monthly basis whilst it is remotely delivered and managed by the provider

Wilson said the NetSuite for Manufacturers software could also be seen as a direct competitor to the Microsoft ERP platform that targets SMEs in the manufacturing sector.
