Sage Alerts & Workflow consists of Four (4) components:

-- Data Mining (Business Intelligence)
-- Alerts / Notification
-- Form, Document, & Report Distribution
-- Workflow

Clients use it to:

Monitor business data and . . .

Trigger Alerts   (page a technician)
Generate & Deliver Forms (send a client an invoice)
Trigger & Distribute Reports (send a forecast report to a manager)
Trigger Task Creation  (schedule a follow-up phone call)
Integrate Application Data (create an order from a closed sale)
Process Incoming Email  (create a support ticket)

Benefits of Sage Alerts and Workflows:

1. Communicate More Efficiently
2. Do Less Manual Work
3. See Problems Before They Happen

Consider This Scenario:

-  A customer who normally pays within 30 days
- They currently have $30K that is 45 days old, but
- ... you don't know it because you run your reports at month-end
- Today you ship out a $25K order to them
- At month-end you recognize the issue and discover the client is
  having serious cash flow problems . . .

Cost of not knowing?

1. Best case: Carrying $55K in A/R
2. Worst case: Writing off $55K when they close shop
