News in G5 - January

Here we present a small selection of new functionality that has been developed in MONITOR G5 during the past quarter.

Pre-calculation – Purchased parts

Now you can perform pre-calculations for purchased parts in order to calculated the parts' total cost (including different expenses) and also 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 necessary data 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.

Stock refill

New procedures are added called 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 analyzes, you can use the Planning formulas procedure where you can enter own formulas.

Authorization flow for purchase orders

Now it is possible to activate an authorization flow for purchase orders where the authorization is made on order row level. For each user you enter an authorization limit for purchase orders and select a head signer who should have permission to authorize the user's purchase orders if they exceed this order amount. Purchase order that are not authorized cannot be printed.

General payment method for Denmark

Now there is a general payment method for the format ISO 20022.

 

 

 

Alternative part units

Now it is possible to enter own types of other part identities. A new tab called Other part identities has been added to the Basic data – Part procedure. There you 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 own types such as ETIM codes.

Schedule update of exchange rates

In the Currencies procedure, you can schedule automatic update of exchange rates. Today it is possible to update exchange rates if you use SEK, EUR, or MYR as company currency. More exchange rates will be added in the future.

Create number series for batch number

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.

New procedures in the web client

The procedures Report arrival, Register case, and Case list have been added to the web client. Regarding the Report delivery procedure, the layout has been improved and bar code scanning via the mobile unit's camera has been added to most fields.
