Aurak – Business case

AkorIT offers a tailor-made solution called Aurak to allow companies and individuals to boost the performance of their regular business and if required also of their e-commerce activities, to promote their goods and services, and finally to improve upon the management of general and online business activities.

What is Aurak?

Aurak is a minimalist management solution designed for businesses needing to combine speed, efficiency and the power of a management tool specific to the African economic conditions. Many companies don’t have a management system, and many find existing ERP’s too complex for their specific needs. So we thought of a minimalist solution, that is easy to handle, and which combines both a mini ERP, a mini CRM and a multi-e-commerce system.

Why a mini ERP?

Aurak is a modular ERP management solution, containing well developed micro services thus users benefit from a great flexibility and the speed of the platform. We focused on the essentials for local businesses, and offer in Aurak the following modules:
⁃ A stock management module
⁃ A sales management module
⁃ A billing management module
⁃ A personnel management module
⁃ A module for tracking income and expenses

It is also a CRM. What to do with
the mini CRM?

Aurak is built with the objective to help its users to improve their customer’s satisfaction. The Aurak CRM allows our users to manage their customers more effectively – to have more information about their needs and businesses, to access information on previous business transactions and thus being able to tailor business offers.

Finally, it is a multi e-commerce marketplace platform

Aurak is a multi-e-commerce platform, where companies have the opportunity to present their products and services and sell them directly through the platform.

This solution allows our users also to improve on products and services due to the direct competition on the platform. Operationally, Aurak also helps our users to manage their stocks for both – their traditional stores and their e-commerce outlets. This is a unique feature that our users benefit from as an electronic stock management is often not implemented in our client’s business operations. After all this contributes greatly to our client’s customer experiences too.

With these functions Aurak combines the features of a product and services sales platform a marketing tool and e-commerce site for end-users and a full cycle business management solution for sales, billing, stock, employees and customer’s information, designed for local businesses to simply and effectively improve their business outcomes.

The company prepares for regional expansion of its solution and is highlighting that the success of its solutions is based on the fact that it is developed for African business by Africans and thus is tailored exactly to the needs of both business customers and end clients.
