BizSlate Inc., the Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) provider of solutions for small and medium sized businesses (SMBs), has announced the launch of its Cloud-based Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system at DEMO Spring 2012. BizSlate's ERP is expected to revolutionise the way small distribution businesses manage customers, vendors, orders, inventory, logistics, and their overall supply chain, with certain functionality reducing processing time by as much as 90% over alternative solutions. DEMO Spring 2012 is taking place 17-19 April 2012 at the Hyatt Regency in Santa Clara, CA.
BizSlate is built on a core principle: the customer has to be involved in the process. BizSlate's ERP system has been developed, not just with customers in mind, but with customers giving active input, guidance and feedback. Early in the development process, Marc Kalman, BizSlate's founder and CEO, brought together an advisory group of SMB leaders and asked them a key question: "What do you need from an ERP system?" Their initial answers – and their ongoing collaboration and input – became the foundation of BizSlate. By coupling a vision of the marketplace with solid data on customer needs and pain points, BizSlate launches with a SaaS application that is ready to lessen those pain points and bring that vision to life.
"The ERP Market is expected to continue growing at a rapid pace over the coming years," said Matt Marshall, executive producer of DEMO. "We selected BizSlate to launch at DEMO based on their game changing approach to small business ERP and their passion for working with their customers to solve real problems. BizSlate's management team clearly understands the market, and has what it takes to be a dominant player in the space over the coming years."
"We are excited to launch our revolutionary solution at DEMO," stated Marc Kalman, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of BizSlate. "To be recognised alongside some of the most successful technology businesses in the world is humbling and a credit to the hardworking passionate team we have at BizSlate. Thank you to everyone at IDG Enterprises and Venture Beat for this honour."
