Elliott Business Software offers a built-in CRM / Contact Management Solution. Features such as Notes, Tickler/Task Manager, Attributes, eContact Manager, eContact Processor, Mass Email, Links, and many more will help your company improve your relationship with your customers, vendors, employees, etc.
You do not have to utilize a third party contact management application. Everything is fully integrated within Elliott Business Solution, which means data is easily accessible because it comes from one source.
You can keep track of your customer, vendor, salesman, ship-to, employee, sales order contacts (and more), send email to your contact records, email sales order acknowledgements, email shipment notifications (with tracking information) and more, all conveniently within the same application.
The center of Elliott’s CRM / Contact Management is e-Contact. Elliott’s e-Contact is an extension to the customer database, as well as the vendor, employee, salesman, sales orders, ship-to, and purchase order database (and more). It can be used not only for CRM, but for Vendor Relationship Management, Employee Relationship Management, etc. e-Contact allows you to store contact information for customers, vendors, employees, ship-to, salespersons, sales orders and just about anywhere in the system. The contact’s e-mail address, shipping address, phone and fax numbers are stored in the e-Contact database. In addition, e-Contact can store password to be used for Internet access. Special ActiveX components have been developed to utilize the e-Contact database from ASP pages. Credit card information can be stored in the e-Contact with encryption for security. Therefore, e-Contact is also an important piece of Elliott’ Internet shopping cart solution.
Once contact records are captured inside Elliott’s e-Contact database, emailing becomes extremely easy. For example, you can bring up a customer e-Contact record from the customer file maintenance and send e-mail to the contact(s) from the e-Contact screen. During order entry, you can also decide the contact(s) for the orders. Orders with contacts can optionally receive emails for order and shipping acknowledgement.
Elliott allow users to send mass email based on e-Contact information. Filter criterias can be set up, so only the intended contact(s) will receive the Email.
You can insert notes (see Elliott Notes) to record conversations with each contact record. This capability will aid in keeping track of customer contacts similar to customer relationship managers. Additionally, the Contact Database will work hand in hand with the e-Contact Processor - mass e-mail program.
With Elliott’s Note feature, you can maintain key information throughout the system. Notes can be used to record your phone conversation with your customers, vendors, employees, etc. They can be printed on selected reports (i.e. invoices, picking tickets, acknowledgements, Bill of Lading, and more). Notes can also be searched by text phrase, creation date, type, and owner. Notes can also be printed on various documents like a picking ticket, packing slip, invoice, purchase order, and more.
This function builds upon the powerful Elliott Notes feature. It allows you to use your existing notes as a knowledge base. You can search for note(s) using selection criteria. You can search for specific notes by entering a text search string, note creation date, note type, or note owner. This provides a convenient way of referencing note information within the system.
Elliott’s tickler feature is a built in task reminder or management system. Ticklers can automatically notify you of ticklers that become due and allow you to manage your priority. Ticklers can be recurring to remind you of tasks that will happen on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. Not only is tickler an important CRM function, it is also an excellent management tool. Supervisors can assign a tickler session to their subordinates. The supervisors can also see the current tickler status of a subordinate to evaluate the work status. Reporting functions of outstanding, past-due and history ticklers can be used to evaluate employee performance.
From the print option window users now have the option of choosing “Email” in addition to “Print”, “Defer”, “Screen”, and “Spool To Disk”. The print job will be sent as an .TXT file attachment. This is particularly helpful in emailing order acknowledgements to customers or even emailing weekly reports to supervisors. It is important to note that the Email functionality found in ELLIOTT will be greatly expanded upon in future updates.
When an order is placed for any customer, an order acknowledgement can be sent via email to the customer. This can be done at the time of completing the order entry process or all order acknowledgements can be sent at once using the included batch routine.
Just as with the order acknowledgement that can be sent via email, shipping notifications also have the option of being sent via email. Elliott provides full integration with leading shipping manifest software, Starship. The tracking number that is written from Starship to Elliott will be included when the email is sent to the customer. This electronic shipping notification contains a hyper link that takes you to the UPS, FedEx, or USPPS website, showing details of the package shipping status.
The e-Contact Processor allows you to send mass e-mails. This is a powerful feature, which utilize the e-Contact database. The mass e-mail program uses filters to search through all existing contacts and select the appropriate contacts to send emails to. The email may include attachments and such coded fields as customer name and credit limit. Coded Fields are selectable from a Tree View of predefined fields and their attributes.
The results of any search can be modified. Once the emails are sent to the selected contacts, a history file is updated with a copy of the email for later review.
Multiple e-mail processors may be run at the same time, even on the same machine, because each process has a separate handle to MAPI.
Export Processor is a tool that can be used as a report writer or to extract data from the Elliott system. Security features are also available to prevent unauthorized people from extracting data. Your salesmen can write their own report without the concerns of a salesman seeing another salesman’s customer data. You can empower your salesmen by letting them have crucial information at their finger tips without compromising security.
The Export Processor allows you to compare one Elliott field to another in the selection criteria. For example, you can select customer records that have a credit limit less than the account. It also offers a batch processing capability. For reps who do not know how to set up and use templates, the IT person can set up the template for them. The reps only need to click on a desktop icon (shortcut) to get their followup user list.
The following master table are available to extract data using Export Processor: customer, vendor, employee, salesmen, item, ship-to locations, sales order header and line, purchase order header and line, GL transactions, inventory location, and many more…
The Elliott Links feature is used to link one object in Elliott (i.e an item, or customer) to a document or a URL address. For example, you can use link for the following:
Links is a system wide feature and can be accessed just about anywhere in the system. This includes customer, vendor, item, employee, salesman, sales order header, line item, PO header, PO line item and more… A “Hot key” can be assigned to each link type. For instance, you can simply type ALT-I (or any key you choose) to bring up the item image from the item file. The design of Elliott Links is generic, so it’s up to you decide how to use it.
Events Handling is one of the most powerful functions in Elliott. It is usually used to send an email in the background when an event in Elliott is taking place. It can also be used to create a tickler if email is not available. A pop-up message box can also be used if email is not available. Events can be used for many different applications. The following are some examples:
Elliott CRM solution has the ability to import customers and contact information from other databases like ACT, Goldmine, or a list purchased from a leads database provider or contacts collected through a trade show.
Attribute is designed to extend Elliott’s database without making any modifications to the database. As a common requirement in CRM, a user can decide to track a certain piece of information about a customer or a contact and later perform analysis on that attribute field. It allow users to track any additional information as the need arises. Working in conjunction with Elliott Export Processor, user can select and export on the specific attribute to create a spreadsheet for further analysis. When working together with the Restricted Attribute function, Attribute can also be used for license and regulation control as in the chemical and pharmaceutical industry.
If using the Starship Manifest System, and Starship is configured to write the tracking number of a shipment back to the database notes, right clicking on the note will launch the Internet Browser and send the UPS or FEDEX tracking number directly to the appropriate web site.
This tool is imperative for customer support staff that will often receive calls inquiring as to the status of their current order. By looking up the appropriate order, not only will the staff person be able to determine if a shipment has left the company, but they can take the process one step further by finding out exactly where the shipment is in the UPS or Fed Ex Process, as well as provide the anticipated delivery date as reported by the carrier.
If your business is distribution and/or light manufacturing, you need a bill of material processor that can eliminate the headaches of organizing and managing inventory and assembly levels. You need Elliott’s Bill of Material Processor (BOMP).
Rely on BOMP to track all raw materials, parts and sub-assemblies used to create your company’s finished goods. BOMP, with its sophisticated product structure, establishes the relationship between one single inventory item and the several components that compromise the finished goods.
Manage your company’s raw materials usage with Elliott’s Bill of Material Processor.
Inventory Management allows you to record 15 character item number, picking sequences, sale statistics, lot or serial numbers and ability to track multiple warehouse locations. Flexible enough to reflect your organizations unique business needs. I/M tracks average cost, last cost, standard cost, LIFO or FIFO. Maintain accuracy and efficiency in managing your business with Elliott’s Inventory Management.
Building your Elliott system starts with the system manager (S/M) as your foundation. Once purchased and installed, it serves as a base for one or all of Elliott’s Accounting, Distribution and Light Manufacturing packages.
S/M quite simply is the backbone for your Elliott system. Features contained within S/M automatically integrate into each installed package.
The result…you’ll enjoy a unified, sophisticated system that offers you unparalleled system management capabilities.

Many industries have special needs when it comes to accounting and distribution. If you’re in the apparel industry, then you are already familiar with that fact. So how can Elliott Business Software help you to keep focused on your particular business needs? By offering to you the “Apparel Style Group Enhancement.” This vertical enhancement for the Elliott Business Software package is specially designed for your company and numerous others just like it. Here is how it works.
After installing the enhancement, begin shipping and tracking inventory by color, size or some other variable by using a matrix grid. Each style can be set up by color or size for sub-coding of an item and track each code of an item individually.
Once set up, enter your orders and print out reports, picking tickets, and more using the matrix you setup. It’s that simple. It’s that flexible.
Many companies need to store newly received items wherever there’s an available bin in the warehouse. Therefore, each item may be stored at multiple bins in a warehouse. Elliott’s Multi-Bin Add-on will give users the ability to record multiple bin locations for each inventory item in the warehouse, as long as the serial number tracking feature is not enabled.
Elliott’s Sales Import module is designed to import a pre-defined ASCII flat file to create COP sales orders. It is intended to provide a easy way for third party developers to create add-on solutions for creating sales orders. This includes EDI, capturing sales orders from a website, or using a portable device. Since third party developers do not need to know how to allocate inventory, determine pricing, commission, sales tax and update various different files that are required to create COP sales order, the task is easy to accomplish. The formatted ASCII flat file is available from NETcellent System, Inc. The only required information is the customer number and item number. Any information not present will be assumed to be a default value.
Elliott’s Sales Export module is designed to export COP Sales Order data to a user defined formatted ASCII file. The application can be used for EDI or any other applications that you may think of.
Elliott’s Shipping Verification is designed to verify accuracy of quantity picked and to speed up the billing process by giving you an Auto-Billing feature. Using these features is a very easy and straightforward process. Without verification procedures, the item quantities on the picking ticket are what the order entry people use to select for billing. If there were errors on the picking tickets, then these errors will be reflected in the billed invoices causing inaccurate inventories and the time expense of reconciling billing errors with customers. Procedures included are entering orders, printing picking tickets, scanning picked items to verify, auto bill orders, printing invoices and posting invoices.
