Abel has been specifically developed to deliver ease of implementation and outstanding adaptability, incorporating each customer’s own business processes into a single wholly-integrated system.

Our team of experienced ERP consultants specialize in configuring Abel to suit your way of doing business. We understand the challenges of changing core business management software, so we have made sure Abel is highly configurable, affordable and fully supported with a comprehensive consulting and support service that ensures your Abel implementation is a success.

We make the transition to Abel easy by offering:

  • Specialist ERP business management consultants
  • Support and consulting services with your own dedicated account manager so that Abel is best configured for your needs
  • An affordable entry cost with two flexible licensing options that enable customers to progressively expand user-numbers or adopt extra functionality
  • Maintenance upgrades that are up-front and sustainable
  • ERP software designed to be run by your staff, not by external IT support teams

Abel provides you with a faster implementation and a quicker return on investment. 

 

Configuration

Abel has been designed from the ground up to be highly flexible. Abel’s integration allows you to link financial, manufacturing and production, distribution, inventory, customer and supplier management systems and also uniquely allows you to “light up” only the functionality you actually use. This saves time and provides inbuilt, easy scalability, enabling you to progressively switch on new functionality as your business grows without facing installation headaches and further expense.

Our ERP Consultants will work with you to identify the right configuration of Abel’s functionality to most cost-effectively meet your business needs and will provide a full project scope and quotation for your implementation.

” As our business changes and grows, we see new opportunities and different requirements.That’s what I like about Abel’s flexibility. When we think of an area we would like to improve, the functionality is most likely there and can be easily configured to meet our unique needs. ”

Implementation Methodology

Abel’s implementation methodology ensures that your transition to Abel is efficient, effective and well managed.

We are committed to minimizing all possible disruptions to your business. During the pre-installation phase, our consultants will map out your business processes and produce a functional specification, then undertake configuration, testing, review, and documentation. They will adapt and tailor training methods to suit your work culture and environment. Our ERP consultants are responsive to individual requirement changes and are adept at recognizing opportunities for business process improvement.

The same consulting team will work with you during your implementation, after go live and into the future, providing you the assurance of an ongoing partnership with expert ERP consultants who really understand your business.

Custom Software Development

Abel is highly configurable and can meet the requirements of most businesses. However, if you require an enhancement, we can undertake custom development for you. Anything from minor changes such as personalized fields, screens and custom invoice formats, through to major new features can be developed to meet your specific requirements.

We have provided a unique framework within Abel’s architecture specifically for custom development. Our framework provides our customers with an inexpensive option for customization should it be required. It enables custom features to integrate seamlessly with Abel’s standard functionality, security, navigation, data structures and data functions while still allowing an upgrade path to new versions of Abel in the normal manner.

 

Consulting

Our experienced ERP Consultants will provide a quote for your Abel implementation and this will be implemented according to your business’s individual requirements. We will also provide quotes for any configuration services you may need in the future as you adopt more of Abel’s features.
