GTS Merges Glass Business Software with Microsoft
GTS, a wholly-owned subsidiary of PPG Industries, based in Portland,
Ore., has introduced a new business management solution intended
to enable commercial, residential and auto glass shops to combine
their GTS software with Microsoft Dynamics GP. The new software
solution, created specifically for glass industry needs, embeds
the general ledger and accounts receivable components of Microsoft
Dynamics GP directly into the GTS GlasPac®LX software.
Embedding the two systems means users do not have to toggle between
separate applications or import/export data. Instead they are able
to seamlessly access and use GlasPacLX files and data from within
the familiar Microsoft® Office interface. The result is one-step,
streamlined access across key business and data management tools,
for greater productivity, flexibility and ability to grow a business.
"We've built a reputation for innovative glass business software
for two reasons--our superior technology and listening to customers
and the changing market trends they need to navigate," says
Mike Jones, president of GTS. "By combining Microsoft's accounting
solutions with our market-leading GlasPac software, we've just eliminated
another barrier to empowering yet simplifying glass business operations."
According to information from the company, the software is able
to connect business processes with the customer's accounting system
for a single, streamlined solution, and also improves access to
business data. Users can simply search for information rather than
always needing to know how to navigate to a specific report. In
addition, GTS is able to offer customers customizable solutions
that combine GTS GlasPacLX and Microsoft Dynamics GP.
