Can my clients also make purchases from their mobile?

m-commerce, acronym for mobile commerce, is the capacity to manage electronic commerce (e-commerce) from mobile devices, like smartphones, tablets and handheld computers.
It was first developed in the nineties following Coca Cola's experience of selling its famous cans via sms, but it really rose to importance in 2008, thanks to the development of mobile Internet connections (WAP technology). In recent years, this type of e-commerce is used, as well as for buying goods, for so-called ticketing, i.e. the sales of electronic tickets for flights, concerts, events, exhibitions, etc…
GEDI ONLINE has been developed to guarantee perfect usability from any mobile device, with just an Internet connection. This means that clients can view the virtual shop and make purchases directly from their smartphone, or initiate a purchase from their mobile and then continue from a PC or laptop. All with complete security for the client, through the use of https.
From the company's point of view, on the other hand, it is possible to monitor and check the progress of any function and even the management of authorisations/confirmations from any mobile device, without the need for the company's static IP address.

Can I have my ERP in cloud?

The word Cloud means technology which allows you to use, via a remote server, hardware and software resources as a service - Software as a Service (SaaS) - thanks to the payment of an all-inclusive monthly fee, which also includes support. Cloud offers many advantages, both economically (such as lower initial costs, increased flexibility and attention to your core business) as well as from a technical point of view (increased scalability, accessibility from anywhere and from any device, system security and independence from ad hoc infrastructures).

ECONOMIC ADVANTAGES

  • Reducing initial fixed costs - Total Costs of Ownership
    Going back to the thin client concept, where the computer is an evolved terminal connected to the Internet. There is therefore no need to purchase ad hoc IT infrastructures; there is a monthly fee which includes rental of the remote server, the licence, updates and support;
  • Focus on your core business
    It is no longer necessary to take on staff specialised in the IT infrastructure you use, because everything is migrated onto the cloud and the physical infrastructure within the company does not exist;
  • Flexibility
    If more or fewer resources are needed it is possible to carry out a contractual adjustment, something which is impossible or very restricted when you own your own infrastructure.

TECHNICAL ADVANTAGES

  • Security
    There is no possibility of the company's data being lost through physical removal. This is because all data is centralised and falls under the centralised security policy;
  • Backup recovery
    All data saved on the cloud server is constantly updated and a recovery copy is created to ensure security and usability even in the event of data centre problems;
  • Accessibility on the move and independence from peripheral devices
    All activity and documents can be consulted online from any device. The only requirement is an Internet connection, to enable you to work everywhere as if you were sitting at your office desk;
  • Scalability
    If you need more or fewer resources, the manager can expand or reduce the structure with great flexibility, allocating the necessary resources to satisfy requirements. 

DISADVANTAGES: with GEDI ONLINE disadvantages become advantages!

  • Personalisation
    With GEDI ONLINE a common disadvantage becomes an advantage: in fact, GEDI ONLINE is a customized management software like a made-to-measure outfit for the company's every need;
  • Integration
    GEDI ONLINE can be completely integrated with any other management system in use, ensuring that data can be easily exported and importing from other ERP software; 
  • Migration
    All the data present in the old database will be imported by our staff at GEDI ONLINE, to save you time and ensure content is not lost.

NO, because GEDI ONLINE is a management software which is already integrated with PayPal. So you can sell your products without activation costs and without security problems regarding the purchases and transactions of your clients.

Do I need to create a special procedure so that my clients can see the status of their orders?

NO, because GEDI ONLINE ERP is a management software which allows for your clients to have a dedicated reserved area within e-commerce, allowing them to manage saved shopping carts, monitor their history and the tracking of deliveries, manage their own personal details, including e-billing. All of this in complete security, for you and for your clients.

YES. With GEDI ONLINE, the CRM, ERP and Production software, you can manage and monitor your company processes in a single solution: sales and purchases, production and quality control, warehouse and logistics, as well as administration and management control.

NO. GEDI ONLINE, in both the traditional client server) and in-cloud versions, is always platform independent and adapts perfectly with any Operating System (Windows, Linux and iOS). Both the ERP and CRM are completely in-cloud and do not need to be locally installed onto any machine, but require a monthly operating fee for the complete management of the solution by GEDI ONLINE: hardware, software and support.

Do I need to integrate new specialised figures into my staff or take long training courses?

NO. GEDI ONLINE is a management system that is easy to use and quick to learn, even for those who have always used different solutions or those who have never used management software before.

PHP and JavaScript language guarantee compatibility with all the most commonly used Internet browsers (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Safari, ecc...).

If the client opts for a solution including acquisition of online licenses with installation in loco, GEI ONLINE also has the advantages of not requiring any additional costs and of being compatible with any technological architecture (on Apache web servers).

The application can also interface with all of the most common databases (MySQL, MS SQL, Oracle, Postgres, Sybase and in general all those that support SQL language).
