Phil here, Production Manager for a small HVAC/Electrical Sales & Service Co. in Texas.
Considering Service Management software and obviously looking at how we would integrate AYANOVA/PeachTree 2010 Complete.
Would like anyone’s feedback on the following:
Duplication of Inventory between programs.
Understand that it’s necessary to make PT charge the correct amount on invoice,
but does it negatively affect the size of your PT DataBase?
Since AYANOVA doesn’t transfer PO’s or Vendor Bills, it looks like everyone that
uses AYANOVA/PT has to duplicate this work documentation. Automating Parts
Purchasing is a big reason to go with this software but if you end up doing twice
the work I don’t understand how you could get an ROI in this category.
Please share your process for this.
Separation of work in the different programs
If your company separates these individual categories of work, ie. I saw some early
posts that said that they used AYANOVA just for WorkOrder/Dispatching and PT for
everything else - Can that really increase efficiency enough to matter?
Looks like we’d still be bogged down in PT…would love to move away from needing
it for so many things.
If you’ve switched from PT to QB using AYANOVA:
Please share how much better the functionality and information flow is.
*Have really considered buying QB (with my personal money) just to see the
difference in how much more info I could get from service management software
because for all the softwares I’ve looked at the QB interface just looks about 3
Appreciate any insights.
