Tallinn, Harjumaa, Estonia, 2007/03/05 - International ERP & CRM producer HansaWorld has announced software version 5.2, including updated communication tools, advanced production planning and changes in the user interface.
According to HansaWorld's Managing Director Karl Bohlin, the new version gives users more flexibility in managing their businesses. "For nearly twenty years, technological innovation has been a priority for us. With this version we have made several updates to production tools and added a number of features, such as the BusinessPhone communication centre for sharing contacts and keeping track of interactions. An assisted set up process makes installing the system easier, and automatic login allows you to save your password upon first login," Bohlin explained.
List of updates in HansaWorld Enterprise version 5.2
• General Updates
Comfortable automatic login
On first login, the system asks whether it should save the username and password and automatically log in that user next time.
Simultaneous uploads and downloads
Uploading and downloading now occurs in the background so you can transfer several files at a time and continue working with other HansaWorld windows.
Custom styled documents
You can now set different fonts and styles for different types of matrix rows on invoices, sales orders, quotations and project budget documents.
Graphical resource planning
Manage resources and assets using a graphical planner that gives a quick overview of the availability of assets in monthly, weekly, daily or hourly views.
• Technical Updates
Faster and easier set up process
With HansaWorld's assisted database and company setup, creating a new database or connecting a client application to an existing server is quick and simple.
Communication and collaboration
Shared contact data with the BusinessPhone
The BusinessPhone window makes it easier to contact customers and business partners, and keep track of all interactions. You can dial and answer landline, mobile, SIP or Skype calls, and send SMSs or e-mails from one window.
An option in BusinessPhone allows you to find addresses on an interactive map (available in selected countries).
Sending out meeting invitations
Meeting invitations can be sent out from the Activity window to customers or partners who use for example Outlook, Gmail or Apple's iCal. The recipient can either accept or decline and the reply will appear in the inviter's mailbox.
• Updates in Production
More advanced resource planning
The enhanced Forecasts module makes it possible to create production and purchase plans using a more advanced logic - depending on sales forecasts, stock policies or stock balances.
Multilevel production for handling finished products with several building stages
Use production operations and routings to register the production process. Operation-based production also supports backflushing and various ways of handling "work in progress" cost.
Varieties can be used in productions
Both components and finished products can be variety items.
Enter production results easily
The Simple Production Entry function allows floor workers to enter their work results in a simplified way; both manual entry and barcode scanning are supported.
• Updates in the Nominal Ledger
Bank Statement report
The Bank Statement report combines all the bank transactions entered in subsystems and directly in the nominal ledger in a single list, facilitating easy comparisons with the statements provided by the bank.
• Updates in sales and retail
Flexible instalment plans
Make invoice dependent instalment plans by editing payment dates freely.
Enter invoices fast
The Supermarket Invoices function allows retail stores to enter invoices quickly, from a single screen.
• Updates in Stock
