Additional Sessions and Topics to Include:

  • IES Accounting – An in-depth overview on month-end / year-end closing procedures and best practices. Discover and “one click collections” by sending open A/R statements and invoice copies to all outstanding clients with a simple click of the mouse. Please join us for this highly-anticipated session. Realize the full potential of the Accounting Tool and uncover new features available to you in this advanced and fully-integrated product. Ask detailed questions from our resident product expert in this results-driven session.

  • eCellerate Collaborative Suite – The web-based eCellerate product line places you at the center of supply chain management.

In this session, you will have the opportunity to review a real-world case study that illustrates how order accuracy was increased to 99.9% with Packaging Optimization in place. Learn how to add packaging optimization to the IES PO Direct and WMS products to achieve a new level of efficiency.
