New module for List Printing No Comments

Increase efficiency and handling of list printouts

Pen and paper? Still indispensable!

Digital processes have become an central part of our working lives, but end-to-end digitization is not always possible or practical: many working routines still use manual lists to record orders, prepare requisitions, etc., before they are later entered into a digital system. And these Lists have to be managed and printed out. Not only once, but often and at regular intervals.

How we can help:Feature14

We not only aim at supporting our Customer’s processes, but also at simplifying them as much as possible. That’s why we implemented a brand new module just for printing Lists. It offers a convenient way to print Assortment Lists directly, no detour into List Management Module required.

In “List Print” it is only a matter of seconds to print Order and Requisition Lists. No need to open List Details one by one. Just select the List, the Layout and off you go.

Key points at a glance:

Data transfer between digital and analog data acquisition is simplified
Elimination of extra work steps due to streamlined process
Time-saving and simple processes eliminate sources of human error

That is not all!

On top of that we have also expanded our existing List Management module. No matter if it’s an Order List, a Waste List or any other type – they all now support multiple Printout Definitions. You can now use different layouts for different locations, even for the same Lists. This allows the special requirements of the individual locations to be better taken into account. For every type of list.

New Tax handling options for international Orders No Comments

Dealing with Reverse Charges from international Tax Schemes is now a child’s play

Only two things in life are certain: death and taxes! (Benjamin Franklin)

While globalization progresses and companies grow, every country still has its very own tax scheme. When Vendors deliver goods within a country, deliveries are simply taxed with regular (domestic) VAT rates, but when orders are placed where a Vendor delivers goods to other countries, things become more complicated. Because different countries mean different Tax Schemes.

Advantages:

Tax handling for cross-country ordering made easy
New Submodule for centralized „Countries“ settings
Tax options apply for the entire Purchasing ProcessFeature12

Complex Tax Issues can cause quite some headache…

In particular Tax Reverse Charge systems can be challenging for companies’ Accounting departments. When goods receiving Cost Centers are located in different countries within the European Union, the delivery must be regarded as intracommunity acquisition. That means based on Reverse Charge system the VAT liability is passed on to the buyer. Tax handling in such cases is much more complex than it is for domestic purchases and can be a cumbersome task.

To solve this problem, we thought about an option to define more than one Country Tax Scheme per Vendor.

How do we handle this?

We provide a solution that allows you to use different Tax Rates and Tax Codes that can conveniently be passed on to Accounting. We established Tax Scheme Override options per Country to be used for their different Vendors. We implemented a whole new Master Data submodule for “Countries” to manage such issues all in one place.

Sending e-Invoices for Sales Orders No Comments

Save working time and get paid faster

Why your Customers need this?

Customers are increasingly demanding e-invoicing, and this is understandable: they can simply import an e-Invoice into their ERP system without having to edit it manually. This saves a lot of processing costs compared to a paper invoice. At the same time it reduces the risk of mistakes and typos as it requires virtually no manual input.

Why you should not miss out on this feature?Feature7

e-Invoicing will not only make things easier for your customers, but for you as well. By
using e-Invoices instead of e-mailing PDFs or sending paper invoices you will save
time and money. And since it requires less effort and time to pay an electronic invoice,
you’ll likely receive incoming payments from these invoices even sooner. Finally, even
cash discount conditions can be transmitted in the electronic invoice.

e-Invoicing make things easier not only for your customers, but also for you. From our
point of view that’s a classic win-win situation.

Key benefits at a glance:

Save time and money by digitization of invoicing
Get paid faster by including payment targets and cash discounts
Reduce possibilities to make mistakes through automated processes

How it works?

In the Sales Order Processing module e-invoices can automatically be created during invoice export. They are then sent via e-mail and/or uploaded to an FTP server without the User having to take any further steps. And of course, different settings can be defined for each customer. From the format to the type of transmission even the file name, each customer can be treated individually.

The function is designed to support a wide variety of standards, with the “ebInterface 6.0” standard already fully implemented at the time of release.

Optimized Cost Of Sales calculation No Comments

Efficient and centralized handling of COS Calculation

Don’t shy away from COS setting modifications!

COS calculation settings are now uniform across all the different modules. Products, Menu Plans and Transfers now all use the same average Price from Store.

We have additionally cleaned up the calculation settings in the Recipe Module. Newly added practical options make it easy for you to do Recipe Pre-calculations. Whether it is the Purchase Price, the Future Price or the Average Price – just click the desired option to apply.

But there is even more!

mistakes that may have occurred can be investigated and fixed easily.

Last but not least, a new Automation Scheduler Job not only updates the Average Price in Stores, but also the Last Purchase Price of the Items. This maintains data consistency automatically; no manual user intervention is required.

Konzeptfabrik – Event June 2021 No Comments

Since 2020, we have been an official partner of the Konzeptfabrik and, together with other well-known companies, have been providing impulses for economic and ecological decisions to interested parties from the community and social catering sector as well as hospital catering.

After 2020 and also the first half of 2021 were characterized by online seminars, the Konzeptfabrik took place in the usual presence format at the Hotel Pullman Stuttgart Fontana on June 15 and 16.

Björn Neumann showed how a food management system helps to save both money and valuable time, and to comply with legal requirements during implementation. Looking to the future, he revealed to the audience upcoming developments with Rieber to simplify the HACCP process as well as the interface to Rational to transfer cooking programs from the current menu plan to the combi steamer and thus relieve the kitchen staff.

Insights were also given on the planned development of a forecast module to get sales and production figures based on current weather data, past sales figures, days of the week, competing menus, etc. from the system as a suggestion and thus achieve better planning capability and ultimately also avoid food waste.

Important topics

Important topics like hygiene HACCP are still the leading topics in all kitchens. Ongoing changes to DIN and the great flood of information poses challenges for every kitchen professional. In the end, the food business operator has the burden of proof and must be able to present a HACCP concept. Robert Diede from Ecolab and Marco Hofmann from the Institute IQL gave ideas to meet the requirements on the market.

Participants got further impressions about the value of coffee, how convenience products can enrich the menu, as well as how operating costs can be reduced with proper water management and how modern kitchen equipment and solutions simplify work processes.

“You take away something new every time” was the statement of one participant, who was attending for the second time.
