SSA Partners With Silvon to Add to eBPCS Capabilities

By Jim Martin

In an attempt to broaden the business intelligence capabilities of its ERP solution, eBPCS, System Software Associates (Chicago) has joined forces with business partner Silvon Software, Inc. (Westmont, Ill.) to develop eBPCS Discover: Sales.

Built upon Silvon’s DataTracker application, eBPCS Discover: Sales gives eBPCS customers a sales, profitability and open order analysis application tool. eBPCS runs on the AS/400, as well as UNIX and Windows NT.

“Our launch of the eBPCS Discover: Sales application further supports our commitment to enhancing and protecting the investments that our customers make in SSA solutions,” says Robert Nussbaum, VP, Solutions Management and Marketing, SSA. “eBPCS Discover: Sales and its underlying technology from Silvon provides our clients with a vital, totally integrated solution for answering crucial business questions. It gives them the answers they need to remain competitive by easily extracting mission-critical data from their eBPCS databases and delving deep into it to identify trends and uncover business opportunities that may otherwise be overlooked.”

eBPCS Discover: Sales features a pre-defined data model, templates and views designed to support a customer’s eBPCS database. The product offers simple, fast data access, graphical and analysis tools and the ability to explore multi-dimensional data relationships. The ability to capture sales amounts, quantities, prices and costs at various levels allows users to do a more in-depth analysis, down to individual products or customers.

According to SSA, eBPCS Discover: Sales is the first in a series of business applications to be developed with Silvon Software.
