Written by Aida de Reede - Heijbroek on . Posted in Exact Globe

Let me first introduce myself. A few months ago I did a career move towards product management and I will be responsible for Cross Border ERP. My goal for 2012 is to improve our software so it supports our international customers with multiple divisions worldwide even better. Some attention points for 2012 are as following:

  • Improve the roles and rights structure within Exact Globe (Next)
  • Improve the auditing and logging functionalities within Exact Globe (Next)
  • Support of intercompany financial transactions by using Exact Globe (Next) and Exact Synergy Enterprise

The roles and rights structure project was kicked off already in 2011 with rights per bank/cash journal, and in the coming Exact Globe product update 404 we will offer support of rights per sales and purchase journal. During 2012 we will continue with further enhancements to the roles and rights, which I will be sharing with you via this blog.

 We have also already started with improving the auditing and logging functionalities. One of the examples is the new log functionalities in the serial/ batch numbers that will be available as of product update 404. For a part of this auditing and logging project I would ask you as a user of Exact Globe for some input and opinions. During 2012 we want to improve the logbook for sales order, purchase orders, RMA/ RTV orders etc.

As you might know not all changed fields in these types of orders will be logged. To make sure the performance of the system is not affected I would like to make a selection of fields to be logged based on a direct input from our customers. They can be ‘nice to have’ and ‘must have’ and can come from the different sections of an order: Header, Conditions, Lines. I would highly appreciate your feedback so we can improve the software according to the needs of our customers.

I am looking forward to hearing  from you. Thank you!

    I think it is hard to say for all customers what fields should be logged and which ones not. Would it be an idea to have the customer specify himself what fields to log? More or less the same as in Exact Synergy where an administrator can indicate which fields in the personal card should be approved upon changing. Of course Exact could give a default template for logging fields

      Thank you Ronald for your feedback.

      Indeed it will be possible in the future to select for the administrator which fields should be logged or not. But to add all fields from all the different type of orders might be not necessary because it will have influence the performance of the system when closing an order. And what to do with the country specific fields?

      What I also would like to achieve is to have consistency between the different logbook because the logged fields in the sales order and purchase order are not the same. And next to that I would like to add extra fields which should be logged. For example all price related fields.

      When we find out that indeed our customers have different needs for the fields which should be logged, then we can decide to log all the fields. That is why I would like to have the input from our our readers, users and customers.

    Hi Edwin,

    On the roadmap for 2012 there is also the creating of a logbook for production orders, internal use and invoices. If you have any specific information you want to log in a production order or other type of orders I would love to hear it from you.

    Hi Aida,

      Hi Jaroslav,

      Yes we are looking at it but we haven’t made a decision yet about what to do.

      When we will work on it then I would appreciate your input.

      Kind regards,
      Aïda
