Benchmark will be implementing our new ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) system on September 1. Because of this, Benchmark will be closed for business on Friday, September 1 to review inventory to complete the final step of our system conversion.
As we move forward with our new system, you might notice slight changes to the look of your invoices, sales orders and purchase orders. If you currently use a document management system or OCR software for our documents, please note that you may need to plan for our revised forms. All the same information will be listed on the forms, but the location of the information on the forms might be in a different place.
Our new system rollout will continue for the next couple of months. Future rollout features will include: online repair order generation, online ordering and a new online help desk. Look for more information on our website and social media for upcoming dates of when to expect those features to be ready for our customers.
We are excited about this upcoming system change and hope you are too! If you have any questions about our new system and the features being offered in the coming months, please contact us at 470.865.6000.
As we move towards our new ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) system implementation date of September 1, we welcome you sharing any features or services you’d like to see to make it easier for you to place orders, process payments or manage our relationship.
Are you interested in paperless processing, electronic order approvals, electronic invoices, making electronic payments, viewing your order history, having a custom catalog for your organization? Any other ideas? We’d like to hear them.
Our processes will run more smoothly, and you will have access to more information than you had before, but we would still like to hear how we can improve.
We invite you to participate in our online survey to provide us with feedback. The survey is only a 3 question survey, and your feedback would be very helpful to us. We look forward to your candid feedback and are excited to show you our new system in a few months. Thank you!

Benchmark is moving to a new ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) system early fall of 2017 (for more info please visit read our official announcement released last month here). With this new enhancement, we will be offering an eCommerce site for you and your customers to order things online at your convenience.
This new eCommerce site will allow for you to view your custom product catalogs, as well as review past orders, invoices and more. All products will be a button push away from being sent to your door!
For our TraxIt users, TraxIt will be replaced with this new site. We will offer training on this new system and make sure everything is running smoothly before the conversion. You will continue to have access to TraxIt after our conversion to view past order history. We are in the process right now of looking for a few beta users to test the new system before it goes live for everyone. If you are interested in helping us make this new product successful, please email your account representative.
As we progress through this planning phase, we will be contacting our TraxIt customers to schedule training sessions that will likely occur in August/September.
If you have any questions about this upcoming upgrade, please feel free to contact Benchmark for more information.
In order to provide you with better, faster and more convenient services, Benchmark is investing in a new ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) system that is scheduled to be implemented by September 1, 2017.
We’ve evaluated a number of the leading systems used in our industry and have selected a web-based solution that is hosted by the provider. This means you will have 24/7 access to the system to place orders, initiate repairs, check on status of orders, view your order history and even have a optional custom e-commerce site that only includes your approved items.
This new system will streamline many of our processes and will enable a paperless end-to-end environment. We hope that you find this transition beneficial, and we look forward to offering you continued customer satisfaction. If you have any questions or suggestions regarding this transition, please call us 470-865-6000 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to check back next month for additional details in our monthly ERP updates.

We offer a variety of check scanner options for RDC and teller capture capabilities. We also offer different maintenance programs for your existing teller equipment.
