Exact Globe product update 402 is generally available

Written by Richard Smits on . Posted in Exact Globe

As of today, Exact Globe product update 402 is generally available which marks the end of controlled release period which started in the end of August.

With our customers in mind, we have extended Exact Globe with features that make it easier for them to fulfill legal requirements and business standards, such as taxation changes for Germany, Switzerland and Thailand as well as reporting features in Vietnamese Accounting Standards.

 Exact Globe product update 402 also introduces the Exact Visual Scheduler to facilitate the work of the production planner in a manufacturing company. It gives you a visual insight in your schedule and reduces the time spent in rescheduling operations. Production orders can be scheduled automatically using finite or infinite capacity. It is easy to spot capacity overload or to see if there is still room to maneuver. You can easily reschedule operations by dragging and dropping an individual operation or sequence of operations. The dates in the underlying operations are changed immediately, as the Exact Visual Scheduler is fully integrated into Exact Globe. This will significantly reduce time spent in handling production order changes, especially when working with suborders. Control of your schedule will furthermore improve control over material flows. Please note that the Exact Visual Scheduler is currently in extended controlled release (video).

As of this product update the functionality of SKU Management is in extended controlled release. SKU Management lets you tag a stock unit in your warehouse with an unique number (video). Also the Exact Integration which is generally available as of August, has new features in this product update, such as supporting the batch update of items and restoring database. To follow the previous announcements in which we introduced Central Master Data Management that supports accounts and items, as of this product update you can centrally manage General Ledgers between Exact Globe and Exact Synergy Enterprise (video).

Based on our customers’ needs we have implemented in this product update, among others, the following new features:

A full overview of all new functionalities you can find in the release notes and some additional information on the Product Update News page. Please also refer to previous articles on the Product Blog.

We would like to thank all customers, partners and colleagues who contributed to this product update.
