Purpose of ElePricelist
MS Excel and even more so MS Word have excellent formatting
and printing capabilities. Almost everybody knows how to use
MS Excel and MS Word and these applications are available on
most computers anyway.
This is why ElePricelist with the embedded EleExxel provide very comfortable and comprehensive
yet extremely easy to use mechanisms for turning MS Word and MS Excel into database publishing tools that publish and format for the data stored
in the Elestore database.
ElePricelist and EleExxel act on the Elestore
data as an output and print generator as well as an export manager
supporting most physical data formats in use today.
The standard Elestore software already fully embeds MS Excel
both as a QuickEditing tool as well as an export target for
data from the Elestore database. This has been available since
one of the first Elestore releases way back in early 2004.
ElePricelist extends this by providing even far more comprehensive
capabilities in using MS Word and MS Excel especially for formatting
multi-line and individually formatted data output from the Elestore
database. ElePricelist provides simple, quick, yet extremely
powerful features for using MS Word and MS Excel as universal
output and print generators and for automatically creating product
and price lists from data in Elestore.
User-defined MS Word and MS Excel templates
Everybody who knows MS Word and MS Excel can create individual
ElePricelist templates or extend those template files that come
with the standard product.
Three types of MS Excel output and templates
As for the use of MS Excel there are three different types
of templates and forms of output, which can be generated by
ElePricelist. This are features of EleExxel, which is fully
incorporated in ElePricelist. Please refer to the description
of EleExxel for further details.
Full integration of Elecalc
If your ERP system is not so easily capable of exporting customer
specific prices you can use Elecalc, the autonomous price calculation
system, as an integral part of ElePricelist to individually
calculate customer specific prices when generating price lists
User-defined rule based calculation formulas
Elecalc uses sophisticated and extremely flexible rule based
calculation logic, which incorporates user-defined calculation
formulas and embeds data from Elestore. We claim: There is no
calculation logic that cannot be implemented easily with Elecalc.
Most flexible price calculation using MS Excel
Additionally, you can embed your own user-defined MS Excel
sheets into the calculations performed by ElePricelist via the
fully integrated module Elecalc. You can even add your own programming
code into MS Excel if all of the above should not be sufficient
(but we doubt that this is needed, although its nice to know
that it's available).
