Even in Inquiry Mode, all eContacts functions are available.



eContacts Review



An eContact record is its own entity.  If it does not belong to or part of any master record, it is only linked to a master record; in our examples presented, a Customer File and Sales Order.  In each relationship, the contact’s Position, Web Access, and Billing/Credit information are unique to that relationship.


Any notes you create for an eContact, regardless of where they were created, will be available globally for that contact.


The e-mail address is the eContact identifier.  If you change the e-mail address, the system creates a new eContact for that e-mail address. 


eContacts authenticates a contact and allows you to grant them Inquiry, Add, Change, and Delete permissions to files you make available on your web site. 


eContacts integrates to the Elliott Software and Elliott Web Solutions.  The biggest advantage of eContacts in the Elliott Software is quick access to contacts in a relationship with a master record and immediate e-mail capabilities from the eContact record.  They can improve user productivity and enhance Customer Relationship management.
