Features in WhirlWind Software Package
ONLY PAY FOR WHAT YOU NEED...
In the appliance business we tell customers, “Only buy the
features you need.” Yet with most software companies you are forced to purchase
all of the bells and whistles whether you want them or not. With the
WhirlWind System you only pay for the features you need.
For example, if you want Inventory Control then purchase only that feature.
If you later want Customer Tracking, Servicing, or any of our other
features you can add them quickly and easily. Because appliance
professionals from the ground up designed the WhirlWind System—every
feature works together seamlessly
Whether you have one store or one hundred stores, the WhirlWind System
gives you the flexibility you need at a price you can afford.
POINT OF SALE
Point of Sale (POS) software is one of the only times your
customers encounter your computer system. They expect quick and accurate
quotes and orders. The WhirlWind POS module, FastBreak™, was developed from
thousands of hours of hands-on testing and use to deliver one of the
fastest entry procedures in the business. When combined with our Internet
Handshake™ technology you can retrieve customer information without typing,
eliminating time consuming and error prone data entry. With FastBreak you
get the right information the first time and every time.
In appliance sales the shifting of inventory from one customer
to another is an everyday occurrence, but most computer systems are not
capable of tracking this. Because sales people and not computer programmers
designed WhirlWind, our Purchasing Module understands and tracks each time
you rob Peter to pay Paul. Our seamless integration with FastBreak,
one-click Purchase Order creation, and scheduled Ordering Reports mean
fewer ordering mistakes. With WhirlWind Purchasing you increase sales and
cash flow by having the product you need when you need it.
In a world of shrinking margins and increased competition, service
is becoming a critical area for most retailers. With the WhirlWind Service
Module, Service Center™, you get fast creation of service tickets
delivering immediate access to product serial numbers. When combined with
our off-site scheduling, one-click parts ordering, and up-to-the-minute
tracking for every service ticket, you have one of the most complete
Service Systems available. Finally, you can now eliminate double entry
because Service Center sends your claims directly to companies such as
Service Bench. With WhirlWind Service Center you can change your customer
service from a necessary evil to one of the most profitable parts of your
WhirlWind Software Inventory Control, WatchDog™, is unmatched in
its accuracy and ease of use. Using hand barcode scanners, real-time
Internet updates, seamless integration with the Purchasing and POS modules,
and other sophisticated data analysis tools you get up-to-the-minute
inventory accuracy across all locations. WatchDog shows which products are
profitable and which are not eliminating unwanted inventory and increasing
cash flow. With WhirlWind WatchDog you will never be in the dark about your
Bar coding is one of the most powerful tools used in inventory
control and management. The WhirlWind System has used barcoding for more
than thirteen years. As part of our system implementation, WhirlWind
Consultants will show you how to print, label, and use barcoding throughout
your operation. With WhirlWind you will know where your inventory is from
the moment it hits the dock to final delivery at the customer’s home.
How many times have you heard customers complain about slow
delivery? With WhirlWind Delivery Scheduler, RoadRunner™, you can now
effectively manage your delivery crew. Use of a powerful scheduling engine
eliminates double and overbooking. Direct integration with detailed mapping
tools means less time looking for the customer and more time delivering
product. With WhirlWind RoadRunner slow delivery is a thing of the past.
As retailers we spend too much time looking in filing cabinets.
WhirlWind Consultants will show you how to scan, catalog, store, and
retrieve documents directly from your computer using Document Wizard™. You
can now see Customer Invoices complete with customer signatures, Packing
Slips, Vendor Invoices, and Expense Invoices (i.e. phone bills, utility
bills, and many others) without ever opening the filing cabinet. With
WhirlWind Document Wizard you will never need to look at a filing cabinet
Getting the sale is only half of the battle, getting full and
final payment is often a full-time job. Lost revenue from bad debt expense
continues to mount and every one of us has stories of sales gone unpleasant.
With WhirlWind Accounts Receivable (AR) you can track sales from quote to
invoice. You can view all payments due and payments already received, and
Scheduled Statement Generation (SSG) allows you to send professional
statements without additional data entry. With WhirlWind AR you can reduce
your bad debts and get back to doing what you do best…selling.
WhirlWind Accounts Payable (AP) tracks liabilities from purchase
order through payment. Items received can be verified against outstanding
purchase orders. Partial, interim, prepayments and/or full payments are
tracked and can be applied against single or multiple invoices. Calendar
scheduling provides a reminder of bills and other payables that are coming
due. With WhirlWind AP the only thing left to do is write the check.
WhirlWind is a complete financial accounting system based on a
true chart of accounts. Transactions are posted in real time and financial
statements are only a click away. With WhirlWind Financial Statements, take
the guesswork out of your business.
Payroll, Cash Management, Financial Reporting, Built-in
Security, and many more. Contact us for a complete listing of the WhirlWind
