Sales Order Entry Functionality

You truly shouldn't have problems entering orders while you're on the phone with the customer, even if it's a new customer who wants a customized kit.

Icon
Commissions Algorithms

Commissions can be based on gross sales or gross profit. They can vary by product, customer and salesperson. They can also consider historical sales.

Fully Integrated CRM

If purchasing, marketing, and sales are not working closely together in a single integrated system, inventory shortages and overages can almost be assured.

Email & Fax Integration

Carillon ERP's Mail module will allow you to email or fax an order acknowledgement to your customer and/or a PO to your supplier right from the Sales Order Entry window.
