Expandable Software, Inc. Advances Look and Feel of ERP with Latest Software Release
SANTA CLARA, CA – March 29, 2013 – Expandable Software, Inc., a leading provider of integrated business management systems for growing Medical Device and High Tech manufacturers, announced today its release of Expandable ERP v9.1 in tandem with the launch of its newly designed and branded website. Both feature modernized graphics and enhanced usability features that offer a simple yet highly functional user experience.
Expandable’s ERP product has enjoyed a long-standing reputation as offering an easy and straightforward user experience with a familiar look and feel consistent with legacy Windows-based software. Among the key features of the Expandable 9.1 release is a new GUI that extends its hallmark simplicity into a more colorful, icon-rich navigation theme that reflects advanced software design.
In developing the new design, Expandable turned to its customers for direction. With the resulting goal of maintaining its consistent organization of functional tools across the various ERP modules, Expandable developers have produced a modern, stylized product with sharp graphics that enhance the user experience while maintaining the simplicity and ease of use upon which Expandable customers have come to rely.
“In developing the new user experience, we took a real partnering and teaming approach,” recalls Dennis Payton, Executive Director of Expandable Product Marketing. “Taking the light and dark side of product development and marketing and illuminating the whole project with serious customer participation, made for really exciting development that resulted in a whole new and positive end user product experience.”
“One of the benefits of being on the user group board of directors is involvement in Expandable product enhancement efforts,” said Jan Young, President of the International Expandable Users Group Association (IEUGA). “Expandable consulted the user group board in making key decisions about the overall design of the new interface. We were able to provide input on the look and placement of major design elements from the perspective of those using the system every day.”
To coincide with the launch of its latest product release, Expandable has redesigned its website from the ground up with an updated standards-compliant foundation and graphics scheme that complements the new look of its product. In addition to graphics that reflect the new look of Expandable ERP, the new website provides an improvement in navigation and page structure aimed at helping visitors gain better insight into the company’s business, products and services.
With a high degree of customer-focused partnerships, Expandable develops, markets and supports an enterprise resource planning (ERP) software suite designed to help executives and managers of fast-growing companies maximize business performance by maintaining visibility and control of manufacturing operations.
Expandable’s fully integrated accounting, engineering and manufacturing modules provide a solid back office foundation while CRM, e-business, and supply chain functions deliver front office tools to manage business relationships, and streamline transactions.
The Expandable system is targeted to medical device and high technology manufacturers who need a dependable business foundation and responsive business partner that will support their growth all the way to the billion dollar mark.
