Pedigree v “Best of Breed”

Beacon for Business is a fully-featured system for the business of manufacturing, which has evolved over many years. This is a complete system, not mashed together business software from multiple sources and design teams.

However we have interfaces to presentation systems like Microsoft Excel.

Cavalier King Charles Spaniel                 Dalmatian
Each of these dogs is close to perfection in their own way.  Breeding them together would be unthinkable.

Some software offerings try for completeness with interfaces between disparate systems.  Information is isolated into bubbles, so projected stock on hand (including PO receipts) is not available to sales staff.

Beacon is fully integrated, so everyone in the company is working in the same information bubble.
