Overview of the Platform

The Fortix system is a highly configurable and web-based business platform, delivering automation from end-to-end for any type of organisation.  We have worked with businesses of varying sizes, providing instantaneous reporting via custom dashboards for managers and owners, allowing them to make informed decisions regarding strategic directions and growth.

Our focus is on making the experience for internal users a positive one, as these individuals will be utilisng the system on a daily and regular basis.  Users are assigned a combination of permissions and roles to view and/or edit different parts of the system, for example a Business Development Manager may see different aspects of the system in comparison to the Warehouse Manager.  In fact, the user interface for these two roles may be set differently to take into account their most frequently used forms and actions into consideration!

The overview in this Explore site will provide standard, non-customised descriptions of the functions and features contained in each module (but please bear in mind that the terminology or placement may be different in the system configuration that your business is on).

Dashboard This is the place to go for a customised overview of what’s happening.  Mini Dashboard Components are frequently released to help users get a glimpse of daily operations.
Contacts This module provides a dynamic and extensive CRM system for any business.  With customisable additional fields, users have the option of bulk importing contacts or alternatively, allowing each contact to update their own data via an external portal.
Business Development Sales pipelines can be tough to keep track of, so our team has developed a Bus Dev module which helps sales personnel generate leads, create quotes and proposals, convert opportunities into customers and of course, into work.
Communications Designed for automation, this module can hold email and sms templates, for individual or mass distribution using  consistent branding, and tracking into each contact in the CRM. The system is also set up for sms alerts, email and calendar notifications for all types of users (internal or external).
Work Using a framework termed Work Requests, this job distribution module enables any user to track and follow any jobs that have been logged in the system.  This module also acts as a timesheeting function, which can be further categorised into the type of work and the work area in the project setup.
Projects This module provides the entity or contract details that have been approved through the Business Development functions, and sets up the work based on the categorisation indicated by the client. Reports of users activities will also be divided into the projects or contracts that they have worked on within the selected time period.
Products Our stock module provides the necessary framework to build, manufacture or purchase resources into components or products, with flexible pricing for use in the Business Development module.  With details that are also transferred automatically into quotes and invoices, this module is a dream for e-shop and online businesses!
Finance Set with billing profiles for contacts, invoice creation and payment updates, this Finance module provides administrative assistance to the accounts team. The platform can be also be set to synchronise with Xero accounts, allowing invoices that have been created in the system to be updated without manual intervention. 
Knowledge Base An information repository that can be shared by all users and also to external users when required.  The articles contained in this section also provides the basis of courses and publications, showcased in student portals when logging into the platform. 
People The foundation of the system lies in the information contained in this module; i.e. details of users and the organisation setup. This module also contains a revisable policy distribution system which handles tracking of governance for users when and as required. 
Content Management System (CMS) For organisations that are looking to customise their website with data from the system, this can be achieved via our CMS module.  
Reports There are over forty (40) standard and customised reports available for our users. 

This section of our Explore site is Work In Progress, so make sure to drop by frequently to see upcoming releases.
