Testimonials from Wholesalers, Distributors, Importers, Exporters and Retailers

Many importers, exporters, wholesalers, distributors with direct counter sales and retailers with point of sale (POS) and online web stores use Ostendo software successfully every day. Their needs include managing imported landed costs in foreign currencies, multiple pricing levels, discount buyer groups, complex stock control such as expiry dates, serial numbers, batch numbers, grade, colour, size, style, fit for the apparel industry, different units of measure, bar-coding, multi warehousing, branch delivery with head office billing a and numerous sales and inventory replenishment reporting requirements. Here’s what our clients want to share with you...

“What I like most about Ostendo software is that detailed information can be easily accessed. It’s also user friendly and not much training is required for new users. My initial concerns were around install time (down time during installation) and adding information (the time it would take to add all the data). Despite these concerns we went ahead because Ostendo looked like the best solution. Data adding is very simple and we have had no down time due to very experienced technical support. We’ve had some great benefits as a result of using Ostendo. These include: control of jobs production, the ability to analyse each job’s costs, simple inventory control, stock control by multiple sites and the ease of managing this stock by expiry date and batch number resulting in a 98% ‘DIFOT’ (Delivery In Full On Time) performance result. It’s easy to use and allows very in-depth reporting. It is also easy to customise reports. The flexible sales and profit reports meet our industry requirements where market trends change frequently. We are able to report sales by delivery customer while sending the invoice to a separate billing customer. We are also looking at integrating Ostendo with remote handheld devices to capture sales orders in the field. Ostendo software is a very good flexible system for small to medium businesses.”

“I discovered Ostendo while researching software availability on the internet. What I like most about Ostendo software is that it is a good, balanced package and I can do a lot with it. It is easy to use, and we have been able to train people to use it very quickly. Inventory management and serial number tracking is important to us and it now takes 50% of the time it used to, before we changed to Ostendo.”

“Our business is the licensing of visual media to advertising, marketing and media professionals and one of our critical needs is for a software system that would enable us to tag images to item lines in quotations and invoices. Initially we were looking at MYOB but at the end of the discussion we found out that our functional and operational requirements could best be met by Ostendo. With Ostendo we are now able to track open quotes, lost sales and invoices by sales person giving management a better overview of our sales management and pipeline. We are happy with the solution and would strongly recommend Ostendo and E Link to all our business partners.”
