We at 安博电竞 Consultants would like to say a special thank you to everyone who came to our 安博电竞 Software Showcase. We hope that you all had a fantastic and informative day - the feedback so far has been really positive!
For those of you who were unable to make it, we put together a day of workshops to find out about the latest technologies to help you with running your business. We also had a buffet breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea to make sure our guests were well fed and watered, offering a great opportunity to network with other companies.
Finally, congratulations to Nick Groom from CJR Propulsion for winning the Windows tablet in our prize draw!
With a mixture of existing customers, representatives from Microsoft, a range of our partners and people who are new to the products, this was a great opportunity to network and gain a great deal of insight. Many of our existing customers went home with a new shopping list, and many businesses gained a lot from finding out how other companies do things.
Guest Speaker from Microsoft
The Internet of Things (IoT) - Andrea Ely
We were extremely lucky to have Andrea from Microsoft give us a presentation. She spoke to us about the Internet of Things (IOT) and explained the concept of how the network of items with embedded electronics and network connectivity enables companies to collect and exchange data like never before. These business insights are helping businesses provide better and more complete service from a truly informed standpoint.

Fast Financials 安博电竞 NAV
安博电竞 NAV is an ERP system that is designed to cover every area of business, so it is sold as an engineered to order project. This involves a lot of discovery and project management to find out exactly what your business needs.
But what if you are a small business and have limited budget and requirements? Very often we work with companies who have gone for a cheap off-the-shelf finance package and are now struggling with the move to completely overhaul their systems in a move to ERP.
The solution is Fast Financials ! We have an out of the box style implementation of 安博电竞 NAV which is aimed at small businesses who want a simple and effective finance solution that grows with you. As you are buying standard licences all you have to do is implement the functional areas as and when you need them.

This means that stock control, pricing, payments etc. can all be integrated seamlessly, saving you time and money, as well as providing a market leading level of service.
