Written by Remco Kroes on . Posted in Exact Online


Continuous budget oversight is key – keeping a close eye on those projects nearing completion is even more important. If your budget reaches 80% or 90% percentage of completion special attention may be required. You may still have time to review, change scope, or change resource allocations. Taking such preventive actions helps you to to prevent budgets from getting too far out of hand.

Avoid overspending on project-related purchases
Exact Online for Project Management helps you to budget project-related purchases – from raising project-related purchase orders with your suppliers, tracking receipts, to recording and matching of supplier invoices with outstanding purchase orders. To better facilitate project control we made it possible to monitor the progress of purchase orders and purchase invoices in the Work Breakdown Structure (WBS*) overview (see image below).

Exact for Manufacturing Ease of Use: Showing floor stock materials in Smart Shop Floor

Written by Pieter Hamans on . Posted in Exact Online


The whole point of tracking actual consumption of materials on the shop floor is inventory accuracy and better product costing. There is a category of materials that do not require inventory tracking, and that category includes floor stock (those materials that are stocked on the floor), and components manufactured by suborders reside on the floor too. For that reason, Smart Shop Floor logistics excluded floor stock on the issue screen. We have now added an option to show those items too.


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.

Enhancing the performance of Exact for Manufacturing part 2

Written by Pieter Hamans on . Posted in Exact Online



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.
