ALERE Business Applications

Strong financials form the foundation of ALERE’s all-encompassing character. Not only does ALERE® have that in plenty, but it also goes above and beyond what most other packages accomplish, offering a real-time general ledger backed by an uncommonly deep level of online traceability. As a period closure is automatic, no human input is needed.

With ALERE integrated ®’s document management, a user just needs to navigate down from the graphical chart of accounts to view an original invoice or receipt in just four screens.

Every sale or purchase order, together with every associated general ledger journal entry, may be viewed throughout its whole life cycle, from quote to payment.

The manufacturing technology used by ALERE® is so advanced that it can do “synchronous manufacture,” which entails knowing exactly which set of materials to supply to which work center for a given task at a given time of day.

For total traceability, the entire manufacturing process is transaction based.

Data collection and barcoding are at the heart of ALERE®. It lowers errors and boosts productivity by handling all inventory receipt, shipping, and transfer moves, supporting physical inventories, monitoring production activities, and labor postings. The core of ALERE® incorporates barcoding and data collecting. By managing all inventory receipt, shipping and transfer movements, supporting physical inventories, tracking production activities, and labor postings, it increases productivity and reduces errors.

With the help of the CRM program InTouch, you can manage your connections with suppliers, clients, and potential customers. It will manage your itinerary with real-time Microsoft® Outlook two-way communications, track all of your conversations, and maintain a list of tasks that you have pledged to complete.

By implementing and overseeing mass email campaigns and maintaining direct mail lists, InTouch helps your marketing campaigns.
