Ball Software is the designer and author of Blindata, an ERP system designed for window blind, shutter and curtain manufacturers.
Blindata has grown from being a sales order processing system to be a full ERP system.
It also includes functionality for sales leads, quotations, sales ordering, bill of materials, stock control, purchase ordering and invoicing, contact management, sales analysis, online ordering and accounting.
There is also functionality for bar code scanning, production scheduling and employee time management.
The software also links to the most popular accounting systems in the UK, including Sage 50 and Quickbooks. Additionally, it integrates with major carriers’ systems, postcode lookup software and with Google Maps.
There are also tools for importing orders from retail web sites and for sending and receiving orders to and from other Blindata users.
Ball Software has also been at the forefront of providing online ordering services to manufacturers and this has resulted in over 1000 businesses submitting orders electronically on a regular basis.
