For instance, it can be plugged to Xero for the accounting part, Unleashed for the inventory part, and Metabase or Tableau to develop Business Intelligence processes. - Flexibility: The lead/onboarding, troubleshooting ticket and system offer forms are editable to allow the distributor to design processes aligned with the specifics of its business model. And as mentioned previously, personalized features can be integrated through our Custom Workflows service in interaction with an ecosystem of +100 third party Apps already. - Bottom-up design: PaygOps software was created as a result of Solaris Offgrid first-hand-experience with last-mile distribution of SHS in Tanzania and other regions in Eastern Africa, installing more than 4000 SHS ourselves and experiencing, first-hand, the struggle and challenges of Paygo distribution and challenges of connectivity and decision making. As a result we have developed unique features such as after sales ticketing system, with offline capability, to support paygo Solar Home System.
