Since 1988, the Activant Silk system has been supporting innovative businesses throughout North America and the Caribbean. We combine industry-specific solutions with flexible enhancements to produce comprehensive software ideally suited to each of our customer's unique needs.
Activant offers you flexibility to choose the features you want and flexibility to format the features to suit your company's needs. The Activant Silk system runs on industry-standard hardware equipment. Our recommended configuration is a Red Hat Linux server with Windows PCs for optimum performance and functionality. Velocity®, our ERP software, is a fully-integrated suite of business software modules. Each software function integrates seamlessly with all of the other applications, resulting in a comprehensive software solution that addresses all of your industry-specific and company-specific needs.
Integration with Third Party Software
Activant Silk offers real-time integration with third-party databases. An example is Seljax, the estimating software. This integration allows for pricing and materials to be updated on the Seljax software and also for estimates to be imported back into Activant Silk for pricing. Another example is PAL, which allows the user to select parts from schematic drawings in a Windows environment. As the parts are selected, they are automatically added to an invoice in real time, with proper pricing, on the Activant Silk software running concurrently.
Business Management Innovation
Velocity is at the leading edge of business management innovation. With its powerful Internet-based companion solutions and integration with various wireless handheld devices, the Silk System helps your company keep one step ahead in a fast paced world.
