Great companies like Amazon and eBay have changed how people buy clothes, shoes, gadgets, software, and anything else that someone can think of. Other companies took notice of how popular these institutions have become and hit the internet highway themselves. Having a web store has allowed companies to reach and service customers in a whole new way.

    The user of e commerce is not slowing down. . Consumer demand to shop on line continues to grow. In order to meet this growing demand, many web store products have emerged. One of the fastest growing web store services is Magento. Talk to any business owner evaluating a web store and I bet you they’re looking into Magento and why not! Almost 200,000 companies power their shopping carts with Magento. Both global corporations and local mom and pop’s chose Magento because it is easy to use, flexible, fast, and pays for itself. Magento makes it easy for businesses to upload their products, product descriptions, pricing , specials and a whole all while making it easy to use for the your customer. Essentially Magento increases the productivity of the business so now you are making more money and doing less. This is a main reason why Magento is such a good partner to connect with AscentERP.

  • It’s Days Like These We are Proud to be in the Cloud

    Posted on January 22, 2014 by Hayley Monsell

    Last night we were hit with a nasty snow storm leaving us with over a foot of snow, icy conditions and New Jersey in a state of emergency. This morning many of our employees were unable to make it to work and this is why we do our business in the cloud! With the help from our sister company, AscentErp, we do not need to be in the office to do business. In the cloud we are able to do all of our purchasing, sales, invoices and even shipping! These tools make our business constantly runnable. In the past, weather and other unforeseen events had got in the way of us getting work done leaving us a day or two behind but now that we’ve integrated into the cloud, we no longer have this problem! No matter where our customers or employees are located we are in constant communication and we never fall behind servicing our customers.. We’re even able to access our business from mobile devices like our iPhones and iPads. Nothing gets in the way of Symbology Enterprises and doing business.

  • Stay Secure with Card Printers

    Posted on September 26, 2013 by Hayley Monsell

    In today’s world it’s all about staying secure. Along with the constant advances in technology, there are also constant advances in ways to break through security. When it comes to sensitive data on your Zebra card printer, you want to make sure you have  top products and top network security to protect such information.

    The following are some steps you can take to ensure that you are taking full advantage of the benefits of a network connected card printing system while avoiding the potential cyber vulnerabilities that are associated with online activity:

    Implement a strong remote device management system – through a remote device management system, you can easily and efficiently monitor not only the state of the card printers throughout your facility, but also usage in real time. Levels of consumables, such as secure hologram laminates and blank cards can be tracked to ensure appropriate use, and you can be automatically notified if certain, risk-specific activity is taking place so you can stop security breaches before they turn into something larger.

    Choose printers with physical locks – networked printers are not always in line-of-sight the way direct connected printers usually are.  Physical locks can help prevent casual tampering or theft of supplies. Limit access only to authorized key operators.

    Encrypt sensitive identity data – all data that is needed to produce a secure ID should encrypted at the host and all the way to the printer. Best practice is to use AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) encryption. Choose printers that can processes encrypted data directly.

    Do not provide direct access to identity data – user access to secure data should be provided through applications only. This allows the security administrator to limit access to identity data by user authorization level.

    Connections to data should be opened only when necessary – secure connections to identity databases should be open only when actively accessing the data. Holding connections open longer than necessary creates an unnecessary security risk.

    Require web-based certificate authority for all operations that access data.

    Always have the firewall on and configured to block unauthorized connections.

    Run virus and spyware screens on all incoming and outgoing data – In addition, keep virus and spyware libraries up to date, which is often something that is overlooked, but often times the easiest step to take to protect your data.

    Having a secure network insures quality card printer services.

    If you have any questions regarding card printers or how to make sure you’re secure, give us a call at Symbology today at 1.888.484.4424.

  • Where has all the cash gone? Inventory.

    Posted on August 6, 2013 by admin

    Inventory is a necessary element to any business. However, no one ever wants to see a box of merchandise start to collect dust because it indicates a sign of inefficiency. People have a tendency to buy in bulk or to over buy. Being mindful of your inventory is important for many reasons. The right inventory allows you to react quickly to customer demand and the right inventory, inventory that constantly moves, will not tie up precious cash flow. In the June 2013 edition of NFIB MyBusiness there is an article that discusses inventory’s hidden cost and how it hurts business. In the article, it discusses how there is a constant struggle to manage and maintain the right inventory at all times.

    Embracing a lean business model and utilizing software designed for the lean enterprise will help any business maintain a constant flow of the right inventory. A lean system will stop over buying therefore increasing cash flow and negating the risk of “being stuck” with dead or obsolete product. Going lean will certainly have a fast ROI. During the software vetting process it is important to understand how exact your inventory will become, therefore increasing cash flow and producing immediate ROI.

    Being perceptive to knowing how your inventory moves, when to buy, and what to invest in are key factors that help business grow and thrive.
