Workbench Designer


Tailor Your Workbench to Fit Your Needs

Make Your Workbench Work For You

In the world of ERP, nothing enables more productivity and efficiency than the ability to easily construct a single view for a user or group of users that allows them to perform all job functions without having to switch from menu to menu.

Every Workbench in Aptean Industrial Manufacturing ERP WorkWise Edition is a compilation of functions, tabs, and drill downs that can be combined and tailored to suit any specific need. Whether it’s for a one-time project, or your standard workflow for the receivables group, The Workbench Designer (WBD) has all the tools you need.

The best part is, you don’t need to be a programmer to design your Workbench. Simply drag and drop major and minor functions from one of the Master Template Workbenches, then refine if necessary down to the function and/or field level.

Benefits of the Aptean Industrial Manufacturing ERP Workbench Designer Include:

  • Combine cross-function capabilities to take advantage of individual workforce talents.
  • Incorporate read only access so people have the information without necessarily needing to change it.
  • Override group functions for selected individuals to assign extra capabilities.
  • Allows users to add their “favorites” quickly and to name them according to their own efficient shorthand.

The Original Role-Based ERP Software

Role-Based ERP Workbenches by WorkWise are an innovation that allows the user to assemble all the modules and applications necessary to fit a particular role or task into a single view. Everything is available in one view, sharing the items of interest with multiple functions.

Multi-tier Excel Exports

Export any portion of the Workbench to Excel, including multiple pages.

Advanced Drill Downs

From one screen, quickly drill down to view invoice details and history

Unlimited Search Potential

Create simple searches or specialized queries with advanced criteria.

All aspects of our company are now running through our ERP software. Having everyone work out of the same system and not have multiple programs that you have to jump back and forth through, has allowed us to get more done in less time.

One of the main benefits we’ve experienced using WorkWise ERP is being able to get meaningful information we can use, versus getting data that requires more work to get the answers you’re looking for. The data is integrated and streamlined for efficient use which keeps our fixed costs lower and allows us to invest our capital into building better products.

It doesn’t take all day to do our schedule anymore. Also, the Performance Management WorkBench lets us see what information we want to see, and what time we want to see it, in a nice visual way. Item Planning is also great. It’s so easy to look up specific information related to whatever we need to see.

What’s really nice is having everything in one package. My financials are in the same package as manufacturing and customer orders. Everything integrates seamlessly. Bringing in inventory management has been a huge benefit for us. Being able to jump between workbenches and different points of data has been really nice.

WorkWise spent a lot of time with us in order to understand our manufacturing process. We’re fairly unique, and there’s not that many companies in the world that do what we do. WorkWise really made us feel like they understood what we were doing and where we were going.
