What's New in August 09

General Upgrades for head office

  • The Distribution Sales report - When the option is set to automatically print during posting, it will now run AFTER the transactions have posted in order to reflect up to date warehouse stock. This is only relevant if the option to check warehouse stock is used. This report now suppresses negative figures caused by returns exceeding sales.

  • General File Maintenance - The Department (Story) Mass delete functionnow allows a season code to be nominated. If used, only items matching the season selected are deleted. Items with stock are not deleted. This facility is intended to be used for removing old season items from the merchandise file.

  • General File Maintenance - If the Graphical Image option is used, the General File Maintenance screen now provides check boxes to nominate that the imagefile should be sent to POS stores and or to the web site. The files are transmitted as part of overnight processing. This should only be used if using Internet polling due to the size of the graphical files.

  • General File Maintenance - There is an option to allow maintenance of additional data for an item/syle. This is particularly useful for clients who use Minder web interface for maintaining a web database. The additional fields are Web Description, Brand, Age Group,  Colour & Size descriptions for items that do NOT have colour/size attributes.

  • Purchase order processing (both Entry and Receiving)  now allows sorting of items based on any column. By clicking a column heading the data will be sorted in ascending sequence based on the data in that column. Clicked again it will sort in the reverse sequence. This is particularly useful when receiving and the suppliers documentis in supplier product number sequence. If creating a new order, the order will be saved in the last sequence displayed. Modifying or receiving an order will allowsorting of the data, but does not change the sequence of the order itself.

  • Supplier Logistics - The Build Sheets can now be printed, without the need to save them as purchase orders or distributions. The Print button is now available.

  • A facility to duplicate a Distribution, Purchase or transfer batch now exists. This is useful when (mostly) the same items and quantities are being distributed to several stores.

  • Item/Style lookup screens now show the supplier number and name and also the supplier product number (if the option is used). Screens where you have entered a supplier number (eg Purchase Order entry, Purchases entry etc) also allow you to sequence the lookup display on Supplier Product Number. You can also enter a Supplier Product Number (or part of it) and the nearest one matching the key will be the start of the display.

  • Purchase Order Status Listing - The Purchase Order Status Listing now shows a promo price if it is current.

  • The transaction Batch List now has options for shading and lines to assist in readability. Contact us to have one of these options turned on.
