We have begun sending out the latest CounterAct update (2-8C). (All Border customers receive system updates as part of their support contract.)
Highlights of the issue include the 360 Degree Overview that allows a user to look up and down a chain of related documents from several starting points eg: quotation, customer order, supplier order, delivery note, purchase invoice, sales invoices etc...
Other features include a new option to show stocked products first in a product search which applies to sales and orders, formal quotations and purchase order processing.
Improvements have also been made to the product search and extract features throughout the system. The distribute feature in CounterAct that allows customer orders to be split over different orders and branches has also been upgraded.
Other enhancements include the addition of two new statuses for customer orders – ‘Newly Available Today’ and ‘New /Goods Unavailable’ that will help customers home in on actions that may be required to meet on time and in full order requirements.
We have also added a number of improvements to its Magento Web integration facilities.
Finally, we have added an option to import XML files from the Synertec EDI offering.
As usual, full issue notes will be sent to all users when they receive the upgrade. Border will also be producing You Tube videos to highlight the most useful enhancements to help users get the most from their investment in CounterAct.
