Your status: the front counter needs lightning speed for orders, the warehouse has forklift drivers, not accountants, but still needs accurate stock levels, and you need to focus on sales, not run an IT department.
No one else that builds ERP / Accounting software is also running their software in their own brick and mortar stores and warehouse every day.
The worst software tries to be everything to everybody. We're going to make your day easier by telling some of you right away that Alox is not for you.
Do you own a multi-national chain store, with 100 locations spread across multiple countries? Well dang son, very impressive! Probably a good bet the boys from SAP or PeopleSoft are already in a jet and flying in your direction.
Are you Ford Motor Co, or John Deere Tractor Inc, or Harley Davidson USA? Ok, if your gig is manufacturing plants, pass on Alox and call up IBM and have them get Watson on the case.
Alox is designed for companies that:
Sound like you? Awesome!
Lots of business software, at its core, is decades old. They've re-skinned it with a fresh interface, maybe even a web portal, but the underlying design decisions they made back in the 80s are all still there. The computer ecosystem had such different constraints back then. Their decisions made perfect sense at the time but are super frustrating to work around now.
Sometimes the best thing to do is to burn it to the ground and start over. No one is thinking Elon Musk should go scavenge some old pieces from the 1969 lunar lander. No one is thinking "Now that we have 3D printing, we can finally build that carburetor we always wanted."
It's common sense that you would design things differently in a world where your phone is 1000 times faster than a Cray-2 Supercomputer from 1985. Don't get stuck trying to add self-driving capabilities to your steam-powered car.
Your system may perfectly functional... but has a few things users hate about it. That's probably where you are right now. "It works, but..." And unfortunately, those "hate-points" are often so baked in to the core of how the software is constructed, there's no way the company could fix them even if they wanted to. Alox started with decades of experience using systems like this and from the ground up, it's designed to avoid the "hate-points" we've had to scream about over the years.
