As of today Exact Synergy product update 255 and Exact Globe product update 410 are generally available. In the product updates several new functions and improvements have been made available such as a new interface for Exact Synergy and enhancements for the Exact Globe WMS solution.

Exact Synergy

The new Exact Synergy user interface is shown after performing the update. The complete user interface has undergone a transformation to a more innovative and visually attractive design. Read all about the changes in these blog posts.

In addition, there are also several improvements in the service management solution, such as the possibility to use selection codes and payment conditions, the availability of free fields, the possibility to determine the order of agreement lines and new lines in the contract and much more.

Please note that Microsoft Exchange 2003 is no longer supported as of product update 255.

Exact Globe

In Exact Globe there are several improvements in the WMS solution. It is now possible to use pre-collection via which the picking advice is generated based on totals instead of separate order lines, and you have the possibility to allocate stock on SKU level.

There is also a separate controlled release of a change regarding the splitting of order lines when allocating free stock. As of this product update actual splitting of sales order lines due to stock allocation of free stock is minimized. The order lines will be displayed as entered when creating the order regardless whether stock is allocated to these lines. This functionality can be made available on request in product update 410. If you are interested in using this enhancement you can send an e-mail to productreadiness@exact.com.

Change regarding the product updates that are available for download

Written by Michiel van Rooijen on . Posted in Exact Globe, Exact Synergy

When performing an update of Exact Globe Next and Exact Synergy Enterprise you have the possibility to select the product update you want to install.

The availability of the older product updates causes confusion among customers our who perform an update. Because there is little demand for the old product updates and they are not up-to-date in terms of legislation and regulations, in line with our Terms and Conditions as of now only the last five product updates are available for download.

At the moment the following product updates are available for Exact Globe Next: 404, 405, 406, 407 and 408. For Exact Synergy Enterprise the following product updates are available 249, 250, 251, 252 and 253.

Older product updates are no longer available for download, but are available on request. For more information about requesting an older product update, see this document on our customer portal.

How do you experience our PowerPivot reports?

Written by Michiel Dorjee on . Posted in Exact Globe

In one of my previous blog posts I reported that we have chosen PowerPivot, a free add-on for Microsoft Excel 2010, to offer you free reports to keep track on your day-to-day business progress. PowerPivot is not available as a free add-on for MS Excel 2013. In that version it is only available in the licence Office Professional Plus.

In the last period of 2013 we have created views on important tables in Exact Globe Next. Based on these views we have built Manufacturing, Purchase, Revenue and Stock reports.  You can easily customize the reports, for instance to align them with your own needs, or build completely new ones.

As of product update 407 of Exact Globe Next, the latest commercial release, the views are automatically executed when the product update is installed. In document 25.623.801 (for customers, in Dutch) a lot of details can be found like installation instructions, setup database connection and reports.

If you already use PowerPivot reports or have built your own based on Exact Globe Next views, I am very curious on your experience. Would you please be so kind to share your experience with us by leaving your reply in the comment box below this article? It is highly appreciated.

Integration with Exact: ELIS – Where are we now?

Written by Michiel van Rooijen on . Posted in Exact Globe, Exact Synergy

As announced earlier ELIS is currently in controlled release.

ELIS is a new technical framework for the integration between Exact Globe Next and Exact Synergy Enterprise and supports solutions that exchange data between these two products and possible third-party solutions.

Via an included control center you can centrally install, activate and manage these solutions (such as Exact Integration, CMDM, Shop Floor Control, Word Merge, Exchange Integration). This all is possible including central and pro-active logging which means that you can manage all integrations from one central location and send them again if errors occur. ELIS even offers the possibility to receive a notification by e-mail our in your workflow, so you can take action immediately.

Also partners are enabled to base integration solutions on this framework to benefit from the built-in functionality and central manageability.

Based on the positive results of the controlled release phase so far, we expect that ELIS including the solutions Exact Integration, Shop Floor Control and Word Merge, will be generally available by the end of this month.

For people who can’t wait it’s still possible to sign up for the controlled release program. This can be done by sending an e-mail to productreadiness@exact.com.

Please refer to the Fact Sheet for more information about the controlled release program.

For more information about ELIS, please see the start page: Getting started with Exact Lightweight Integration Server (ELIS).

Support for Internet Explorer 8 will be discontinued

Written by Michiel van Rooijen on . Posted in Exact Globe

Microsoft ends the support for Internet Explorer 8 in January 2015. This may have implications for your Exact software.

In order to work with Exact Globe Next and Exact Synergy Enterprise, Microsoft products are required. Exact follows the Microsoft support lifecycle policy with respect to these products’ system requirements. As a result the support of Internet Explorer 8 will be discontinued as of product update 254 of Exact Synergy Enterprise. This is also applicable to the Exact products that use Exact Synergy Enterprise, such as B2B E-Commerce portal.

Exact advises you to timely switch to a newer version of Internet Explorer or one of the other supported browsers, so you can continue to use the latest product updates of Exact Synergy Enterprise in the future.
