Improved matching of advance payments when processing (online) sales orders.

Written by Jaap Jan de Lange on . Posted in Exact Online

Online sales often starts with an advance payment. Payment Service Providers, who facilitate an electronic payment when submitting selected products from out of a shopping cart in a webshop, provide a reference that can be used for matching incoming statements after delivering the goods and processing the sale.

Currently such a reference can be stored in a sales order, but is lacking a dedicated place to be used to optimize the matching process. Exact Online  will soon offer a dedicated place for a payment reference in a Sales order, that will be transferred via Goods delivery to a Sales invoice and an Outstanding item in the Financial administration where it can easily be recognized and matched with statements coming in.

This functionality is expected to become available within Sales orders in the coming weeks for customers using Exact Online Wholesale Distribution and Exact Online Manufacturing. Customers using an Exact Online Accounting edition that includes Sales invoices will be able to add a payment reference in the Sales invoice.







Avoid stock quantities from going NEGATIVE in Exact Online.

In a world where customer service is key you must be able to rely on the number of products on stock when making commitments towards your customers. Regular counting of products in your warehouse will for sure help, but differences are not always noted in time. It is therefore that Exact Online will soon also enable you to block any delivery of products when it would lead to a negative quantity in stock. As stock levels can physically not become negative it is a true indicator that the system is out of sync with reality.

From a tablet into the cloud: smart industry on the shop floor

Written by Pieter Hamans on . Posted in Exact Online


Common practice in many manufacturing companies is to collect shop floor data on time and material consumption to achieve an accurate product costing and to monitor progress. Often, this progress is recorded in writing on the shop paper, or entered on a shared terminal supported by a barcode reader. Where a written record leads to delayed entry and inaccuracies, a shared terminal with barcodes still depends on paper.
