Add the Tracking number of a Shipment to your Invoice layout!

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

As the Sales Invoice is often the first official document that touches the recipients desk or e-mailbox, having a Tracking number on it will directly help to check for an expected arrival time. Especially when the products are urgently needed it saves valuable time for all parties when being able to track the status of the shipment instead of wasting time on making various phone calls. But it can also avoid for Sales Invoices to be put aside and resulting in a late Payment.

Exact for Manufacturing Ease of Use: Introducing the shop order material issue slip

Written by Pieter Hamans on . Posted in Exact Online

BATCHASSIGN-000

There are several layouts that list shop order materials, such as the shop paper, the manufacturing picking list and the manufacturing cluster picking list. None of these are suited to direct the warehouse staff to pick specific serial- or batch numbers. We are now introducing the shop order material issue slip to help you precisely with that objective: pick the right batch.

Enhancing the performance of Exact for Manufacturing

BACKGROUND000

Manufacturers often work in big datasets: many products ordered that are built with many shop orders requiring many materials to be purchased. When we generate shop orders for a few hundred products, or purchase a few thousand line items into hundred purchase orders we do have to wait a long time (preventing us from working on other screens), and we even may experience a gateway timeout. We have identified processes that are slow, and we are solving the issues by introducing background processes.

ROUTING000

Purchase agents can now easily identify and manage their own purchases.

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.

BARCODES-000

Barcodes are machine-readable representations of data. They are nowadays stuck to virtually every product and with the help of an appropriate device they disclose a price, eligibility for warranty, shipping destination or flight number. Until recent, Exact Online would support only for a few fields on a few layouts to print a barcode. We have now developed the ability to print barcodes for any field on any layout.

PICKLIST-EN-000

We can collect shop order materials in the warehouse using Smart Shop Floor Material Management. But we also support the good old printing of a picking list, a concept that we are already familiar with in the sales order delivery process. We have recently released the manufacturing picking list and the manufacturing cluster picking list.

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.
