The sales module is a convenient way to manage all of your sales and orders in one place.
Sales managers can track the order fulfillment progress, in the overview pane, where both list and status views are available. Any changes to order or customer information can be made easily. Preventing edits on some fields depending on order status and/or user roles can be set up in whatever configuration you need.
The sales module allows your sales managers to work in a single common space ensuring a good flow of information, and makes sure everyone has access to the same up to date data. Making your sales process a lot more elastic and capable of adapting to unexpected challenges.
Project management module was developed for manufacturers involved in larger scale construction or delivery projects. Projects can be divided into orders and the planning interface handles document storage and versioning, resource planning, manufacturing batch planning, statuses, and more to make sure everything related to one project is easy to navigate throughout the whole system.
Project management module can also act as a hub for information sharing among external parties involved in the project cycle - engineers, manufacturers, logistics companies, and assembly teams. In the case of construction material manufacturers, the module can integrate with CAD platforms to upload and interpret engineering information for further planning and status control.

Whether you have one product that can be configured in a hundred different ways or a myriad of products that need their own configurators, Austra can handle it all.
We support a low-code approach to allow setting up sophisticated configurations. The setup for the product configurator is done via a simple interface, where your employees can edit existing configurators or add and set up new ones with ease. Our software can handle any parameters your manufactured goods and processes might have, and prepare standardized information for other modules like manufacturing and logistics.
Once everything has been set up, our platform can automatically calculate BOM, production norms, generate order estimates and any other documentation you might need.

Well-planned logistics play a huge role in the growth and success of any manufacturing business. Our logistics module enables your business to save time by automating multiple steps of your logistics process.
Having everything within the same platform allows for a seamless flow from manufacturing to delivery of goods. Once the goods are manufactured our automated packing-list generator can compile your goods into packaging units (pallets, boxes, silos, etc.). Given the parameters of the transport, our system can then efficiently arrange the packaging units into trucks or containers for delivery.
Once the actual deliveries start going out Austra can generate CMR's and any other standard or custom documentation you might need.
When it comes to logistics, autonomous trucks is the one challenge we'll leave to others, let Austra take care of the rest!
The module provides an opportunity to plan the installation or assembly of the manufactured products. Assembly and logistics managers can review orders placed for installation at site and schedule manufacturing activities accordingly.
Since manufacturing and orders are managed in the same place, installation planning schedule can be made based on the expected manufacturing and orders. In case of any deviations from the plan, information is made available instantly to everyone involved in handling the particular order making the planning a lot more elastic and efficient.
Supply-chain management is the oil that keeps a manufacturing business running.

Warehouse managers can easily review warehouse balances and arrange new procurement orders as needed. The production module feeds information about estimated remainder at the end of the month, allowing warehouse managers to make sure everything is ordered in a timely manner, according to expected expenditures. Austra can handle the min-max replenishment process if that's how you prefer to organize your stock.
Quality management plays an important role in any manufacturing business. We have developed a module for this purpose, where both reporting and review is made easy in order to ensure quality issues are always reported yet don't waste too much of your employees time.
It supports both internal and external claims thus ensuring that all quality issues are managed in one place. Once the information on quality issues has been entered, detailed analysis of the various issues and issue types can be easily accessed and used for further reporting or solution seeking.
