New in G5 - January
Here we present a small selection of the new functionality that has been developed in MONITOR G5 during the past quarter.
You can now perform pre-calculations for purchased parts in order to calculate the parts' total cost (including different expenses) as well as the sales price. In the Part register procedure, you can add purchase expenses to a purchased part. This can be used as basis when calculating standard price. In the new procedure, called Pre-Calculation - Purchased parts, you can perform calculations for purchased parts. A warning appears if data required for the calculation is missing when running the calculation. This applies to calculations in both the Part register and Pre-Calculation – Purchased parts procedures.
When you choose to save a calculation for purchased parts to standard price, you can only save from the alternatives Standard price and Net price.
New procedures have been added entitled Refill list – Purchase and Refill list – Manufacturing. There you can calculate stock refill for parts, with the planning method Stock refill. Normally, you check if the current balance is less than the part's reorder point. In order to perform other analyses, you can use the Planning formulas procedure where you can enter your own formulas.
It is now possible to activate an authorization flow for purchase orders where the authorization is made at order row level. For each user, you can enter an authorization limit for purchase orders and select a head signer who will have permission to authorize the user's purchase orders if they exceed this order amount. Purchase orders that are not authorized cannot be printed.
Now there is a general payment method for the ISO 20022 format.
It is now possible to enter your own types of other part identities. A new tab entitled Other part identities has been added to the Basic data – Part procedure. There you can find the pre-defined types for GTIN8, GTIN12, GTIN13, and GTIN14 (Global Trade Item Number), and SGTIN (Serial Global Trade Item Number). You can also register your own types, such as ETIM codes.
In the Currencies procedure, you can schedule automatic update of exchange rates. It is currently possible to update exchange rates if you use SEK, EUR, or MYR as company currency. More exchange rates will be added in the future.
In the Number series procedure, it is possible to create number series for batch number for purchase and manufacturing. Tags for e.g. year, month, and order number provide great flexibility when you create these number series. <code>:<yy>-<MM>-<dd> provide numbers such as "10001:20-02-25", "10002:20-02-25", etc.
The Report arrival, Register case, and Case list procedures have been added to the web client. Regarding the Report delivery procedure, the layout has been improved and bar code scanning via the mobile device's camera has been added to most fields.
