Easy-to-understand invoices get paid faster!

Written by Remco Kroes on . Posted in Exact Online

Want to get paid faster? Want to avoid late payments? The solution? Simple, concise, and easy to understand invoices. If you invoice your customers in a way that is easy for them to understand what is actually invoiced, the more likely you’ll get paid faster! In order to reach this objective, we made a few enhancements in our invoice  process. We made it possible to further consolidate invoice lines, we adjusted the sorting order on the invoice specification and we made it possible to merge both the invoice and invoice specification into 1 pdf.

Exact for Manufacturing Ease of Use: Picking materials for shop orders

Written by Pieter Hamans on . Posted in Exact Online


The person doing work preparation for the shop floor did have limited tools at hand to instruct the warehouse. The shop paper can be used for this purpose, but well known flaws are that all materials used are listed indiscriminately (order and stock controlled, subassemblies, backflushed), lines are not ordered by pick location, combined picking for multiple shop orders is not an option, and support for serial- and batch numbers is not provided. We are about to add three new layouts to reduce efforts for work preparation.

A Purchase agent is a gatekeeper for the quality a company can deliver to its customers. The saying “Garbage in is Garbage out” is on top of mind. It is the purchase agent that selects and contact suppliers and agrees on best prices and quantities. A purchase agent is also monitoring suppliers and their products or services and makes sure they are delivering what was promised.
