Ariett Releases New Mobile Procurement and Requisition Solution at Intacct Advantage

Modern Responsive Design Allows Employees to Work Anywhere, on Any Device

Las Vegas, Nevada, Intacct Advantage Show – November 10, 2015 – Ariett, a leading, mid-enterprise provider of Cloud Purchase and Expense software, announced today at the Intacct Advantage show the breakthrough release of Ariett Touch: a complete Requisition and Procurement solution featuring adaptive and responsive design. Ariett empowers employees to choose how they work and delivers the same cost-saving features for all desktop, laptop and mobile devices – a Windows or Mac laptop and an IOS or Android device can be used just as easily.   

Glenn Brodie, President of Ariett, said, “Imagine your IT team can now deploy a new installation and at the same time reach for their phone and place a punch-out purchase order to CDW, Staples or Dell for components they need in a matter of seconds.  Employees can create purchase requests and review, approve and execute transactions for preferred vendors with contract pricing from any browser and location.”

“Now customers who love using Ariett Touch for entering expense reports, authorizing travel requests, approving invoices and managing contracts can benefit from the same easy experience while creating requisitions and submitting purchase orders,” said Brodie. “This release completes our development team’s two-year strategic plan to move our procurement application to a single, modern platform for all devices.”

Employees can quickly view and process electronic invoices, price quotes, receipts and contracts on any phone, without downloading multiple device-specific apps or plugins.  Using Asynchronous JavaScript (AJAX) calls, Ariett’s responsive design interface quickly loads and communicates with your Cloud SQL database with fewer page refreshes. The flexible screen layout automatically displays relative sizing by adapting to the device’s screen size and rotation.  

Nick Furnish, Senior Business Analyst at Crossroads, recently spoke about how Ariett Touch has helped their business process goals:  “When using Ariett Touch, our Accounts Payable team can just scan the document and let Quick Add show them the next available document to process. This cuts out a lot of the clerk’s time because they just scan or automatically receive invoice documents from vendors and let the system keep track of which items have been processed.”

Ariett on the Microsoft Azure platform is now the only Cloud solution that is built with the latest technology to allow employees to generate corporate savings from any mobile device.  Brodie said, “The evolution of our interface reflects the changing demands of employees and CFOs today.  Not only do decision-makers seek solutions that allow employees to buy better and more efficiently, but they seek solutions that understand the way employees work and prioritize the user experience.”
