Pegasus Software announced the availability of the latest version of its flagship software solution, Opera 3. Building on the integrated Finance; Payroll & HR; Business Intelligence; Supply Chain; Document Management; CRM and Service & Helpdesk Management capabilities of the solution, the latest version includes a number of new applications and enhancements to evolve and strengthen its functionality.
With over 60 enhancements, Opera 3’s CRM has been boosted to provide users with a new summary scheduler, designed to improve call management and associated resource planning. It also incorporates a feature which enables users to consolidate planned maintenance calls for equipment items, eliminating the need to create individual calls and duplicate effort.
In addition to CRM improvements, its Supply Chain Management functionality has been enhanced to enable product information to be extracted from Opera 3 Stock Control, and allocated to worksheets for relevant personnel to perform manual counts. On completion, management can run a cross-check, resolve discrepancies, make corrections and post adjustments back into Opera 3 to automatically update stock levels.
Document Management has a new application, Document Management Desktop, which enables employees who are not users of Opera 3 to capture documents and access stored documents. And a new notification service means that messages can be distributed to users or groups of users, about a planned shutdown, directly through the Opera 3 interface.
“Opera 3 has been built upon the principles of flexibility and choice, and the latest version embodies these values through offering new applications, more functionality and over 60 enhancements to our CRM capabilities,” comments Stuart Anderson, Director, Sales & Marketing, Pegasus Software. “We have over 4,500 users reaping the productivity benefits of Opera 3 and look forward to seeing this number increase in line with the launch of our latest version.”
“The new functionality in Opera 3 means that we can perform our month end much quicker, and because stock management is integrated with our accounting processes, we have 100% visibility of inventory, production and delivery schedules,” comments Paul Birnie, Financial Director, Wensleydale Dairy Products. “Now that we have this benchmark we hope to be able to tighten our processes further and reduce inventory to maximise efficiencies across the organisation.”
“The enhanced reporting in Opera 3 enables us to export reports directly to Excel and benefit from real time management information,” comments Mark Nunn, Managing Director, Niarchos. “Having worked with Pegasus for many years, we have absolute confidence in both the product and the support we receive, and look forward to reaping the productivity benefits that the latest Opera solution will bring us.”
