Exact Macola Releases New Version of Flagship ERP and Business Software

Exact Macola 10.3 Includes Support for Windows 10; Spanish Language; Updates to Mobile

COLUMBUS, OH--(Marketwired - December 16, 2015) - Exact, a global frontrunner in business software for small-and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), announces the release of Exact Macola 10.3, an enhanced version of its flagship ERP and business software. The latest release includes several new features and capabilities designed to respond to the current and future needs of fast-growing manufacturing and distribution organizations. Within a single, comprehensive, full-featured solution, Exact Macola automates and manages core business functions like product manufacturing and distribution, accounting and finance, document management, project management, CRM, and human resource management.

Exact Macola 10.3 features and benefits include:

  • Introduction of Avalara connectivity, which enables Exact Macola customers to seamlessly integrate with automated sales tax software Avatax, significantly streamlining the calculation and reporting of sales taxes, a key challenge for SMEs
  • Addition of Windows 10 support to meet growing adoption rates; according to Gartner, nearly 50 percent of large corporations will have begun deployment of Windows 10 by January 2017
  • Spanish language support throughout the product, bolstering Exact Macola's recent focus and expansion within Latin America
  • Updates to mobile applications, allowing users to easily complete tasks on the go, such as entering orders, creating quotes, finding customers "near me," checking inventory, and viewing workspaces (iOS app updates available now and Android updates expected in the first quarter of 2016)

"For fast-growing manufacturers and distributors, spreadsheets and legacy systems are not enough to keep pace with growth goals. Automation is a critical piece of keeping margins healthy and operations lean," said Alison Forsythe, managing director at Exact Macola. "With the new features available through Exact Macola 10.3, we are fulfilling our commitment to continued innovation by adding capabilities that our customers need to stay competitive in today's market, as well as tomorrow's."

Other notable new features include:

  • Web-services features were added for order entry and accounts payable to improve overall functionality
  • Multi-site MRP planning workspace added as the first step in a phased introduction of multi-site MRP functionality
  • Grid-based data entry, which improves efficiency by allowing users to enter data in a view that resembles the grid of a spreadsheet rather than entering it one screen at a time 

"Wastequip has an important investment in the Exact Macola 10 ERP platform as our system of record for many of our business units," said Rusty Andrews, CIO at Wastequip. "The evolution of Exact Macola functionality in version 10.3 aligns well with our needs, and our diverse geographic footprint. Of particular value for us is the new Avalara connector for sales tax calculations and the Spanish language support for our Mexico operations and other Spanish speaking employees."

Exact Macola 10.3 is available now. For more information or to request a demo, please visit www.exactmacola.com.
