Pronto Xi by Pronto Software is a fully integrated enterprise resource planning (ERP) suite that provides core applications, such as financial accounting and business intelligence, alongside sales and marketing modules, supply chain management and distribution tools, and manufacturing and facilities management features.
Pronto Xi provides several different modules within one comprehensive program. Their core offering combines financial tools and distribution systems and directly integrates with IBM’s Cognos business intelligence technology. Pronto Xi Runtime allows the system to run on various operating platforms and server databases, and the TrueForm server collates all company documents to keep everyone accountable and apprised of edits and updates. Within the distribution tool, users can view and manage multiple warehouse inventories, automate freight calculations, access complete sales histories, and customize order entry screens. Additionally, the program’s manufacturing suite helps make any manufacturing environment more efficient by creating responsive inventory items based on client requirements that transition to shop floor instructions.
We especially like Pronto Xi’s Easy POS feature that provides users with a rich touch-screen user interface that directly integrates with the suite’s inventory management tool. Users can create new customer profiles from any store and make them accessible from any register. Also, real-time stock inquiries can easily be executed by any certified staff member, which helps eliminate calls between locations.
In 2013, Pronto Software won the BRW GE Capital Mid-Market Momentum Award for Best Mid-Market Business. They are best suited for mid-sized businesses in retail, heavy industry, manufacturing, mining, field services and supply chain management, and the system can be deployed as an on-premise, web-based or hybrid system. Although Pronto Xi is Windows-based, its mobile applications work on Android and iOS products.
