West Midlands-based Syscom Plc has launched a new enterprise resource planning (ERP) module - PocketERP - which provides hand-held control over business information from any remote location.

PocketERP combines WiFi and Internet technology allowing users to access real-time information such as product availability and customer account information instantly from any online PDA, web-enabled mobile phone or laptop.

Sales orders can also be entered directly into the PDA via a simple interface - speeding up order processing time and reducing paper flow.

PocketERP has been designed to work with the existing SyscomERP system which allows users to exchange and update financial, sales, distribution and manufacturing information via a centralised database.
