New item codes from your supplier?

Written by Richard Smits on . Posted in Exact Globe

When you receive a file with the new item codes from your supplier, you can update your items in one go. The batch update functionality is best used for this purpose.
In product update 401, the batch update functionality has been enhanced. You can maintain your ‘supplier’s item code’ and update the information automatically using batch updates.

Let’s take an example:

Supplier 60120 Roode Pelikaan send a list with new item codes. Via maintain items, you can use the batch update functionality. Select the supplier, mark the check box ‘Supplier’s item code’ and press ‘Show list’:

Adjust the column ‘New’ with the new item codes received from your supplier. After adjusting the item code(s) you can update by pressing the ‘Exact Globe: Update’ button.

All adjustment items are updated and ready to be used

Multi-divisional Products and Services.

Written by Richard Smits on . Posted in Exact Globe, Exact Synergy

Central master data management for Accounts is available .  Now company wide compliance for products and services is in scope.

Control over items is more than just identification of the items over multiple divisions.    

Having a corporate standard on items does not mean that a local division can not create or  maintain items. What should be taken into account is the fact that the comply with corporate standards. Besides that it can well be that a division offers only a selection of the overall product portfolio based on market focus or knowledge level. Within the item portfolio stock values or pricing can well differ per division. It enables managing the product life cycle on a divisional level as well as companywide optimization of usage and handling of products and services.
