About OCTELAS

SME businesses use accounting/ERP or other software to manage the processes in the business. This may be off-the-shelf or something written for you or your business niche. These systems hold a mass of data relating to, for example, sales, purchasing, stock or other transactions which is generated as part of the normal day-to-day activities. Octelas is a clever extraction and reporting tool that integrates with this data and is designed from the "bottom up" to be simple and intuitive in use.

Pros: Setting up favourites for quick navigation.
Adaptable.
Displays as little or as much information you wish at a click

Cons: Nothing much comes to mind, only thing to be said could when you do not unselect sales reps looking at sales in a year for example, the data can overload some browsers and cause them to run slowly.

Pros: Octelas is easy to migrate round and you can export reports to manipulate the data further if required. We currently working with Octelas to show the data as we would prefer it.

Cons: Due to our in-house operating system we had to use the experience of a 3rd party consultant to assist in the implementation. However this did not take long.

Simple to use and has saved me money

Pros: Easy, I just can run any reports when I like. It lets me look closely at customers sales and also I use it a lot to ensure that pricing is correct in our system

Cons: Waiting for updates in the evening for that days info.I would like info live, but I appreciate that the Illuminis sytemhs to transfer at the end of a day when no-one is keying into our office system that we use to generate customer orders.

Overall: Saved what it cost in installation by noticing numerous under charging to customers on some products that had been going on for a long time.

Pros: The preset reports and the layout. In that sense the tool works really well. I'm able to find most of the present reports and use for my needs.

Cons: Like any tool training takes care a lot of the pain points, some of my issues have been from what I think is intuitive isn't always the case for this tool, but training takes care of that.

Pros: Ease of use, needing virtually no training for our staff. It allows us to have the data we need presented in exactly the format we want - we don't have to choose from a limited set of reports or indulge in hours of complex data extraction and modelling - what we want is instantly available. The push reporting function also means that issues are instantly highlighted and reported to the necessary person for action, we don't have to remember to look for issues, or undertake monthly checks - it means the data is used to drive our business making us ever more efficient.

Cons: There is absolutely nothing about this system that I do not like. It is simple, yet powerful, and a joy to use.

Pros: The ease of use is superb, it takes data twice daily from our Dynamics system, from SQL given us accurate upto date information, without any re-keying. The Customer Service is incredible, nothing is too much trouble.

Cons: Nothing to dislike really, it does what it said it would do. A little more, user customisation for some basic tasks within the filtering area of the software, would be of benefit cometimes - you never ask for all the formats you think you'll need.

Wonderfully simple to use, a very powerful business tool

Pros: What I like most is that I can do things with Octelas in seconds what previously it took minutes for me to do, and was impossible for the majority of my users. Data availability has been transformed by the introduction of Octelas which means the decisions e make are better and done more quickly.

Overall: Enormous efficiency gains.
our experience is overwhelmingly positive and, with use, is becoming more critical to the business as each month passes.

Pros: I like the ease of use with Octelas we have a system called Kerridge and it is quite an old system we installed Octelas and now reporting is a breeze

Cons: We dont have the skill to export the coding from the kerridge system to Octelas so we had to use a consultant to do this but it only required setting up once so that was good

Pros: For many many years we struggled to get any meaningful information or data out of our system and unless you were an expert with Excel and/or ODBC this usually meant that any data was usually not quite what was needed or needed further processing.
Octelas has been a revelation, authorised users can now easily get to the data themselves and in the format of their choosing. Users can click and drag the data headings to develop and design their own reports exactly how they want them and the favourite report function allows useful or frequently used reports to be saved so the data is only a couple of clicks away. The easy access to the information really allows good informed decisions to be made as well and easy monitoring of performance in all area's of the business.
The support we have received from Illuminis has been excellent and we have always had very quick and positive responses to any queries we have had.
I just wish I could give more than 5 Stars

Very good piece of business software that is intuitive and concise.
