Order Management Software

Q: Order Management Software

Hi,

i work for an internet business which sells on eBay. at the moment we take a lot of phone orders. obviously with eBay it keeps a record of the order on there, but with phone orders it involves so much paperwork being produced and filing, so when customers ring up to query something from a while back im having to go through loads of paperwork to find their order.

I was wondering if anyone can recommend a suitable piece of software that i can use where i would just enter details of their order, for example name, delivery address, items ordered and price etc etc. It would ideally be so if someone rings up and asks about a previous order i can open this program, click a few buttons and their order is in front of me.

im not fussed about keeping inventorys of stock levels and all that, don't particularly want anything over complicated, im good with computers and quite knowledgable but would prefer something simple.
another way i was thinking was to do my own "intranet" and have a form on there which i fill in and then it saves it on the computer so me and my two colleagues (which will become more as we expand) can view it.

i also looked into using microsoft access but not a fan of it.

any ideas would be much appreciated!!!
many thanks
Arron

Preferred Solution: Order Management Software

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi Arron, welcome to the board!

I would recommend Microsoft Access, especially if you have it. Of course this could be done in Excel (which I am a fan of ) but as you grow and your information grows with your company, you'll be happy you started this in a relational database.

There are many Access guru's here and I'm not one of them. LOL! But you may want to think about changing your thread title (Thread Tools | Edit Thread) to include Access somewhere in there. Your current title is somewhat misleading. Also, you may want to check Office Online for templates, there are many you may find useful.

Until recently I had my hard drive setup in a Dual Boot arrangement which contained XP Pro and WIN 7. This was a temporary arrangement until such time as I became familiar with WIN 7 when I intended to remove the XP installation.

Under this setup, whenever I booted into WIN 7 this appeared as Partition C: of 20 Gbts and with XP hidden in a Partition E of 15 Gbts which showed up in Disk Management as Unspecified Space of some sort ? ( I forget now the exact description )
If I booted into XP , this appeared as Partition C but now of 15 Gbts with the partiton containing WIN 7 showing as Partition E of 20 Gbts this being similarly described in Disk Management.

I have now removed XP from this setup by deleting its partiton when I was booted into WIN 7 re-formatting it in NTFS thus ending up with a hard drive containing only Partitions C: of 175.27 Gbts which is where WIN 7 is installed and a "New Volume E" of 14.65 Gbts this latter being the former "home" of XP .
This result is shown in the Attachment to this post.
As you will note , New Volume E , appears before the C: Partition on HD0.

Now that I have finally arrived at a single OS (WIN 7) setup I would like to re-arrange HD0 to have Partition C appear first then extend this to include New Volume E so that HD0 wil be just a single unpartitioned drive .

Is this possible and , if so , how do I go about it ?

I upgrade my laptop hard drive to 1tb hitachi travelstar and restoring the image with macrium reflect went well and prompted to reboot. After rebooting, it showed the hp logo then a black screen with an underscore on the top left, no hard drive activity. Windows boot manager said "the boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible: status "0xc000000f". I used the windows system repair cd and it said that it will repair the following: "windows boot manager". The following startup will be deleted "windows setup", path "system.sav\2ndCap\boot.wim", windows device: partition=cprimary) 447134 mb. Everything was okay after the repair, but after a long 5 hour night of updating programs, windows updates...etc, I looked in disk management and there is 465gb unallocated space at the end and 200mb free space in the beginning with the c: drive (main partition) after the 200mb space followed by the recovery partition. I can't extend the c: drive at all, it's greyed out. I don't know what to do now, please I don't know much about these things, so go easy, thanks! On top of that, when reinstalling the hard drive, one of the screws from the enclosure fell down the sink drain.

It is rare and hard to get, but it is definently the best thing out there. Not an option for most people unfortunately.

3. Antivirus software
This should be obsoleted by #1, but it is good to play safe.
4. Anti-spyware

There is no point in paying money for #2 and #4. If you can find a place that sells #1, tell me too

Do not use anything Norton or Symantec. Better leave out McAfee too.

Why not just use Pocket Mirror or the Palm Desktop software? You DO NOT have to interface any contact manager with Outlook it is normally a feature because a lot of people use Outlook.

I'm looking for font management software. I don't want to fill my windows/fonts folder with my own fonts every time I'm working on a project. I want to keep my fonts separate and only turn them on when needed. Like temporary fonts. Then turn them off again. The windows/fonts folder shouldn't be touched/enlarged, just containing the default windows fonts.

Any advice? I guess it isn't possible to temporarily turn on fonts without installing them in the windows/fonts folder?

A:font management software

That sounds like a good idea but I don't know of anything that will do that. Modern PC's and moder OS' such as Win 7 do not have a problem with a large amount of fonts. And, if you are having space problems on the hard drive, it's really time to upgrade the hard drive rather than limit items such as the fonts.

Hey everybody

Here at the office, we have been using Microsoft Access 2003 to manage our agents. It's worked pretty well, but we need something that will do more. Now, I'm not sure of the extent that Access can go into, so it may actually be able to do everything we need it to do.

What we need is contact management software that will allow us to set everyone up into groups. But we need to be able to set up users for the database. These users would have limited access, depending on who they are in the company. Also, we need something where we can attach resumes, files, etc. to it. We are currently using Access, and about 3 other programs to do various things.

I've taken a look at Act! 6, and it is almost perfect for what we want. The people can be put into various groups, and I can attach files right to those people for easy access. Almost perfect.

The problem is, Act doesn't allow me to set access to the groups. For example, when I was using Act, I would set up a hierarchy, to where the top group is the top guy, and each person under that person is a subgroup. That works perfect, except I need to be able to set it up where only certain people can see these groups. I can't do this with Act.

I've taken a look at some other programs as well, but Act is the closest thing I can find. Does anyone know of some really good Contact Management software that I can use? Or is Access capable of what I need it to do?

Thanks.

Forgive me if this isn't in the right spot. I didn't know where to put it.

I'm looking for some software that we can use to manage our printing in our office. We have a couple printers that we print on each day and we'd like to track how much gets printed through there. I've found some stuff, but the main function I'm looking for I'm not sure they offer. We aren't trying to see who prints the most or waste paper or anything (we don't really see that as an issue) but instead we need to track our reimbursable.

All of our printing (for clients) gets charged back to the client. Basically I want something that when you click print on your computer, you have to select what project it's for. Maybe just enter the project number. Then the software tracks how many pages (of both 8 1/2 x 11 and 11 x 17 separately) so at the end of the month we have a total of how much each project requires we print.

Does anyone know of software that can do that?

A:Looking for helpdesk/asset management software

Not sure about the language side of things but take a look at Lansweepr and see if that helps? - Network Inventory - Software Inventory Management for Windows Networks

They were developing a Helpdesk platform to gone with it, not sure if they did that or not, we bought it for asset management reasons.

I built a tiny yet powerful HTPC with the new sandybridge Intel i3 CPU. is there some kind of software that will turn off the spinning HD when it is not needed and only turn on if say a tv recording is scheduled for a certain time, record the show, and then turn the hd off again. it runs windows 7 64 bit, 8 gigs of ram, 2tb hd, blu ray burner. Thanks
 

A:power management software for HTPC

Standard Windows 7 power management will do this. Go to Power Options, select a plan, click Change Plan Settings, Change advanced, expand Hard Drive. Set the time to power off the drive.

Hey all,

I'm looking for something to help manage the conditions under which Windows 8 sleeps and doesn't sleep depending on what my PC is doing, as it seems incredibly random by default.

If possible I would also like an easy way to manage which devices and peripherals are allowed to wake the PC up, as determine wake event sources for trouble shooting (I know you can do this with the powercfg command and event logs, but it's quite troublesome).

eg. I would like to be able to set a 15 minutes idle = sleep condition, but prevent my PC from going to sleep when I'm streaming media via Serviio DLNA to my TV, playing audio, or while I have actively running downloads. I would like it to go to sleep, for example, when five minute average network I/O is less than 128kbps, CPU is idle, stuff like that.

Anyone know of any software that provides this functionality?

Cheers!
