Next to tracking both billable and non-billable work, Exact Online for Project Management helps you to track leave & absence related activities. Your employees can enter leave requests themselves and easily track accrued leave balances. Your project managers can easily see who’s available and who’s not available for work due to holidays. We made a number of enhancements to improve our leave management capabilities: we added a few overviews and made it easy to make leave balance adjustments.

In Exact for Manufacturing and Exact for Wholesale Distribution Advanced and Premium editions we can work with serial and batch numbers to support traceability and compliance to industry regulations. A new right makes it possible to assign rights to those employees that are allowed to correct erroneous serial and batch numbers.
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.
Once a product is finished on the shop floor we have to decide on its disposition: will we put it in stock, will we immediately deliver it to the customer, or will we stage for delivery until other products ordered at ready for shipment. Via the screens of Exact for Manufacturing all three options may be possible, but in Smart Shop Floor we can choose to stage for delivery or put into stock only.
For Wholesale Distributors it is not an exception that a customer walks in for some last minute purchasing of products for their customers or for getting a job done. To serve them fast and easily a Direct or Over-The-Counter (OTC) Invoice can be created, but where to find the product? Especially when the Warehouse is large and the variety of products is extensive.
You may have noticed in recent days some small changes in the Exact for Manufacturing shop floor planning screen. We have for example removed the Gantt chart from the main page, and moved it behind a button called Chart. These are changes leading up to some important enhancements to the shop floor planning that will be released in the coming weeks.
