Launching today: Do Good with Data

Do Good with Data is a special new initiative from ZAP, initially for existing users of Sage X3.  It’s launched today as the first of many steps from ZAP to make sure our business, our partners and our customers adapt to economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

We discuss the background to the problem in our Do Good with Data blog post but, in short, the COVID-19 pandemic is affecting our world in an extraordinary way and challenging everything we consider to be normal.  In doing so, many individuals continue to personally experience changes and challenges in every aspect of their lives.  And as a business, you are no different – but your need for information is much larger and more immediate.

ZAP’s Chief Evangelist Trey Johnson explains: “The continuously changing impacts your business will experience requires significant new and additional insight at a heightened level of sophistication and understanding during these emotionally, economically and operationally testing times.  ZAP and SD&A have the tools to deliver on this.  We are here to get you the insight you need.”

What does the program offer?

Through our strategic relationship with Sage, we are able to offer all Sage X3 customers – at no charge – installation, configuration and use of the Sage Data & Analytics (SD&A) platform for 60 days.

The software is easily deployed in either your infrastructure or can be hosted in a ‘ready-to-go‘ cloud environment.  This will very quickly provide you with data-driven analysis and answers that address:

  • Supply chain – including Supplier Performance, Inventory tracking and valuation, Manufacturing Performance and Purchasing Insight across all of Sage X3
  • Financial performance –including Liquidity Management, Financial Reporting, Sales, Accounts Receivable Performance, Accounts Payable Optimization and other General Ledger Insights
  • Uncovering and understanding the new realities of changing customer behaviors and demands
  • Looking inward – quantifying and demonstrating the impacts of changes in your workforce

Businesses must become data driven immediately, almost overnight: understanding when and if things are getting better, and being prepared to quantify the economic impacts should you need further recovery assistance.

ZAP will provide two days of implementation and mentoring (free of charge) to get all its sales, financial, HR, supply chain and production analytics running against your Sage X3 data.
