The Only Time Universal Search Matters in Your Accounting System

People ask us when it’s a good time to use GetX, our so-called universal search tool for Sage 100 ERP.

This is what we tell them: “Use GetX when you know what you’re looking for.” Also, when what you’re looking for is not calculated data, there is a good chance GetX is the way to go.

In other words, if what you’re seeking is actually in the system (as opposed to a report or a graph that gets calculated when you run a report or a dashboard), GetX can likely provide the information, and more choices about what to do with it, faster and with less hassle than the way you’re using Sage 100 ERP today.

GetX – When You Know What You’re Looking For

It’s a whole new way of thinking about your system. A better way. Better not in the sense that every single little thing you do will be improved, but better in the way that everyone on your team, by using universal search, will be more confident with Sage 100 ERP. They will work faster, find it easier to detect and correct data errors in the system, and be more confident using the system.

Consider why we use Google in the first place. We turn to Google because when we know what we’re looking for, we likely don’t want to type this in more than once: http://www.whattheheckis07rt7thisiml00king4.com/donttryme/

The same holds true with another huge collection of data—your accounting/ERP system. Whether your Sage 100 ERP database is 255 million MB or 1.5 TB, universal search will make your system better.

While others navigate menus, folders, tasks, screens, tabs, and buttons, GetX users simply enter the data they know they are seeking and immediately start taking action.

Which do you think is faster? Which do you think is better for customer service, or internal communication? If you were training a new employee to use your Sage 100 ERP system, do you think they would gain more confidence, faster, if they could rely on a search tool similar to Google?

By comparison, traditional navigation seems a little like keeping the data behind a bolted door with 5 padlocks.
