Deacom Inc. has built new functionality into its Integrated Accounting and Enterprise Resource Planning software. The addition to version 11.0 provides users in the building component and process-manufacturing industries with enhanced internal and external reporting abilities. Deacom's ERP integrates all areas of a manufacturer's business, including purchasing, sales, production, inventory management, lot control, formulation, engineering links, labor tracking, stores and point of sale, and accounting, into one system. With a new dashboard feature, users can compile an infinite number of reports from across all business processes into a single summary screen, the vendor claimed. Companies that reference the same reports regularly, such as monthly production costs or year-to-date revenue, can create a dashboard that provides at-a-glance views of each report. They can then drill down to individual transactional details. Dashboard users can set a "target value" for each report to measure real-time report data against company goals. The summaries can then be viewed graphically, for a visual representation of company performance. Another reporting feature, cube groups, lets users save reports for export to third-party reporting tools, such as Crystal Reports.
