SME businesses use accounting/ERP or other software to manage the processes in the business. This may be off-the-shelf or something written for you or your business niche.
These systems hold a mass of data relating to, for example, sales, purchasing, stock or other transactions which is generated as part of the normal day-to-day activities.
Octelas is a clever extraction and reporting tool that integrates with this data and is designed from the "bottom up" to be simple and intuitive in use.

Octelas allows people to make good informed decisions based on real information
For many many years we struggled to get any meaningful information or data out of our system and unless you were an expert with Excel and/or ODBC this usually meant that any data was usually not quite what was needed or needed further processing.
Octelas has been a revelation, authorised users can now easily get to the data themselves and in the format of their choosing. Users can click and drag the data headings to develop and design their own reports exactly how they want them and the favourite report function allows useful or frequently used reports to be saved so the data is only a couple of clicks away. The easy access to the information really allows good informed decisions to be made as well and easy monitoring of performance in all area's of the business.
The support we have received from Illuminis has been excellent and we have always had very quick and positive responses to any queries we have had.
I just wish I could give more than 5 Stars

The best software for quick and efficient data manipulation
Pros: The ease of use is superb, it takes data twice daily from our Dynamics system, from SQL given us accurate upto date information, without any re-keying. The Customer Service is incredible, nothing is too much trouble.
Cons: Nothing to dislike really, it does what it said it would do. A little more, user customisation for some basic tasks within the filtering area of the software, would be of benefit cometimes - you never ask for all the formats you think you'll need.

Simple to use and has saved me money
Comments: Saved what it cost in installation by noticing numerous under charging to customers on some products that had been going on for a long time.
Pros: Easy, I just can run any reports when I like. It lets me look closely at customers sales and also I use it a lot to ensure that pricing is correct in our system
Cons: Waiting for updates in the evening for that days info.I would like info live, but I appreciate that the Illuminis sytemhs to transfer at the end of a day when no-one is keying into our office system that we use to generate customer orders.

This has revolutionised the use of our core Sage SPS package. It is intuitive and yet powerful.
Pros: Ease of use, needing virtually no training for our staff. It allows us to have the data we need presented in exactly the format we want - we don't have to choose from a limited set of reports or indulge in hours of complex data extraction and modelling - what we want is instantly available. The push reporting function also means that issues are instantly highlighted and reported to the necessary person for action, we don't have to remember to look for issues, or undertake monthly checks - it means the data is used to drive our business making us ever more efficient.
Cons: There is absolutely nothing about this system that I do not like. It is simple, yet powerful, and a joy to use.
