A new year brings smart new functions in MONITOR G5
In recent months we’ve been fully focused on developing more smart functionality that will help your business run even more effectively. There are many customers who have requested functions to handle packing as well as electronic invoice management.
There is now a new procedure for registering and updating maintenance orders for your tools and machines. Maintenance orders are used to plan and report time and material for different types of maintenance. A maintenance order is always linked to a serial number on which the maintenance is carried out, and a maintenance template which describes the operation.
For maintenance orders, you can choose to use operations and material from any part, as well as utilize variant codes and configured parts. This provides great flexibility when registering maintenance orders.
A maintenance order is a type of manufacturing order. This means you report time and material in the regular reporting procedures for manufacturing orders.
For the purchase of maintenance, such as calibration of measuring tools, the maintenance order must include a subcontract for calibration.
The Register maintenance order procedure is included in the Tools & Maintenance option.
In the pick list for manufacturing there is now support that enables you to split the pick list more effectively. The pick list can be split by Order, Manufactured part, Operation, or Work center.
In addition, you can now use the Web client to report pick lists for manufacturing orders.
There is a new procedure, Report subcontracting cost, for reporting subcontracting costs afterwards. It enables you to report/adjust the actual subcontracting cost from the invoice for the subcontract.
There is now support to include quotes in requirement calculations and net requirement calculations.
Keep track of key figures by generating a list of the order inflow for blanket orders, that is, the result of registered blanket orders and subsequent adjustments that have affected the value. The Order inflow – Blanket order procedure shows how many blanket orders have come in, based on customers, parts, overtime, etc.
There is a new procedure, Pack for delivery, in which you can pack the parts to be included in the package. To pack, you use either a regular or preliminary pick list. You can prepare packing with a preliminary quantity in your package which can then be cleared gradually, and marked as packed. When packing your delivery you can also generate packing lists for all or part of the packed package structure, as well as transport labels for the packages that need to be marked.
You're sure to have noticed the launch of our EIM Workflow option. Called Web – EIM in G4, EIM Workflow is a powerful addition to MONITOR EIM that will streamline and simplify your electronic invoice management. EIM Workflow handles supplier invoices fully automatically, from registration to linking with purchase order and authorization. And to make the process even more seamless, final recording can take place automatically when there is a complete match. The invoice data is imported into EIM Workflow in MONITOR G5 after the supplier invoice has been scanned and interpreted. E-invoices are imported automatically, without interpretation. The invoice is automatically matched with the purchase order, both at header level and row level. If EIM Workflow detects deviations that exceed what has been entered in the system settings, the invoice is sent for authorization.
There are now country packages and conversion support for Norway and Poland. This means that customers who currently use G4 are able to upgrade to MONITOR G5.
There is now support for cash book management. This function was developed mainly for countries in Eastern Europe, where there are specific rules on recording liquid funds in the accounting. Cash withdrawals and deposits are registered in the cash book. These could include transactions relating to customers, suppliers, employees or banks, etc.
Default values are now easily accessible in the toolbar of list procedures.
