Indianapolis (Vocus) – July 22, 2010 – Consona Corporation (Consona), a worldwide leader in providing customer relationship management (CRM) and enterprise resource planning (ERP) software and services for companies of all sizes, today announced the availability of AXIOM Version 6.0 (v6.0), an ERP software solution designed specifically for the unique requirements of manufacturers and distributors in the metals, wire and cable industries. AXIOM v6.0 includes a variety of new upgrades to provide greater functionality and ease of use, including an enhanced user interface based on the Microsoft .NET architecture that improves navigability throughout the entire AXIOM application.
AXIOM v6.0 underwent a successful and comprehensive Beta testing program before becoming generally available. Implemented at Stripco Inc., a Mishawaka, Ind.-based manufacturer of production-ready steel coils and strips, AXIOM v6.0 has been successful while enhancing Stripco’s customer service and providing an improved user experience.
“Our users really appreciate the improved interface and navigation in (Version) 6,” said Eric Hiler, general manager, Stripco Inc. ”It remains an important tool for us to deliver excellent customer service and execute our vision to build relationships and pursue stewardship.”
AXIOM helps companies of all sizes achieve sustainable improvements in operational performance throughout all areas of business — from sales and customer service to production, quality and financial management. The new “Advanced Navigation” feature ensures the user can open multiple AXIOM screens at once — including multiple instances of the same program — and easily toggle between them. Users may also now switch between facilities and work with different facilities in open AXIOM screens. AXIOM v6.0 even enables users to customize their favorite AXIOM screens and configure them to automatically launch upon startup.
