Activity Pro Aids Makers of Customized Products

Business management software for small to mid-size sign firms

Big Picture

Activity Pro! software can help owners of businesses specializing in custom-manufactured signs and graphics maximize profits by managing many of the details involved in estimating jobs, tracking orders and communicating with customers.

For example, the software's # Up Calculator helps calculate the number of individual pieces that can be cut from a substrate, taking into account probable padding and waste. The Shipping Center feature makes it possible to create a backorder invoice. A Reorder/Duplication Entry makes it possible to re-order an invoice as an estimate and duplicate existing estimates.

Additional features include automatic service charge entry, tax exempt ID expiration dates, the ability to reassign multiple customer origin and industry categories, and the flexibility to denote customers as "inactive" versus deleted. (Activity Software: www.activitycorp.com)
