Border is part of the Hermitage Innovation Group of companies:
Border Merchant Systems
We all share the same core values: Honesty - Wellbeing - Enthusiasm
Having had a number of new starters across the group in recent months, we took the opportunity to bring them all together undertake two days training designed to reinforce these core values and explain how important they are to us all.
The training was run by Heather Wright from Advance Performance Ltd who is a fantastic coach and motivational speaker.
The sessions took place in the historic Old Grammar School in Market Harborough, a building that dates back to the 1600’s.
Border would like to welcome our newest CounterAct user.
Based in Accrington in Lancashire, Greengates are one of the few remaining family owned Builders and Timber merchants in the area.
They supply both trade and DIY customers a huge range of products, priding themselves on offering a fast friendly, efficient and knowledgeable service at competitive prices.
We are well into the process of sending out CounterAct Issue (2-8B) to our customers. However, our Development Department are busy working on the next release.
A new feature that will be added to the next CounterAct release is the 360 Degree Overview.
We are just about to start sending out the latest CounterAct update (2-8B) to our customers. (All Border customers receive system updates as part of their support contract.)
Highlights of the issue include the ability to mass release delivery notes, an option to use thermal printers to print account collection and return notes as well as cash receipts.
We have some added some enhancements to how CounterAct deals with special products.
On a supplier account you can now specify a default product group which is used for new special products from that supplier.
Coming soon in CounterAct release 2-8B, we will add another feature which will allow you to specify the default margin you should be making on new special products from that supplier. For example, you specify 30% and CounterAct automatically will put M30 into the special selling field in sales and orders.
