Affino 7.5.10 Release - CRM Evolution

This is the biggest Affino CRM release to-date, in fact it is simply the biggest Affino release altogether. It’s been twenty months and a couple of man-decades since we started working on many of the elements which we are bringing together today.

 

The goal of this release has been to turbocharge all aspects of the CRM, sales, financial reporting and production elements in Affino. We’ve added a third dimension to the order management in Affino in the new Pro Forma Orders,

Affino Midyear Report

It’s been a heavy duty year on the development front, particularly as regards the CRM component of the platform. When the CRM was first introduced several years ago, it was mostly used as an adjunct to existing CRMs and ERPs, but as many Clients have moved away from systems like Salesforce, Affino’s CRM has had to take on an ever greater central role. To a point where it will very soon offer the complete Media Company CRM Solution - including print planning and management, order

Access All Areas Software

The most productive tools are the ones that everyone can make use of and work on together. Yet so much software is stifled and limited by who and how many can use it. It used to be a big thing 20 years ago that most software was sold on a per-user or per-seat licence. It’s a surprise really that so many vendors are still persisting with this old-fashioned limitation for company-wide systems.

 

For modern digital business and website software you would really want all your staff to

Float like a Butterfly, Sting like a Hornet

A slight switch-up on the Ali riff - who’d want to sting like a Bee anyway, a once only sting which leads to a ruptured abdomen and instant death for the protagonist. Far better to sting with the power of an Asian Hornet - the most formidable and lethal of flying stingers, with unparalleled stamina in the action department. Yet as we all know, power means nothing without control. You can have the most powerful engine in the world, but without sufficient vehicle downforce and traction, all

Soar While Your Competitors Flap

Running a multidisciplinary digital business is usually hard work, and can be considerably complex for anyone trying to maintain a dynamic digital presence. In fact most companies do themselves few favours either by having an overly convoluted solutions and systems setups - often utilising 20 or more disparate technologies to provide the full-service solution stack. Not only is this approach more vulnerable to security issues, as most data is hacked in transition, but several such solutions

We Build and Innovate Businesses

When considering the deployment of a new digital business, most companies are aware of the standard approaches to implementing a solution. Going wholly bespoke, utilising an enterprise stack, or going mid-range pick-and-mix are the main ones that come to mind. All those 3 approaches have significant downsides- going bespoke is incredibly expensive and time-consuming, it relies entirely on input from just a single perspective and does not benefit from innovations and synergies that evolve out of

Full-Throttle Development

Extreme Programming has been pushing the Affino platform forward since its inception in 1998 - for a long while now encompassing the Agile Sprint methodology.

An Explanation of Unified Platforms and Universal Systems

Back in the day - when you bought a car, say 10-20 years ago, you really just got the basics for your money. Pretty much everything we now expect as standard kit was an optional extra back then. Quite a number of the optional extras were procured from 3rd party suppliers - things like your In-Car-Entertainment systems.

 

In fact In-Car-Entertainment has now moved several steps forward as we no longer see the luxury screens embedded into the back of head-rests - nowadays passengers prefer
