Customer Master 18.2 enhancements
Templates are popular time savers, and MACC continues to add enhancements making them even more efficient. A new type of template called Order is now available that can be applied to both Service Orders and Sales Lead.
A new visually, convenient pop-up window was added to Payment Entry screens throughout Customer Master called My Pending Payments. Similar to a register tape the screen is movable, sizable and keeps a running total of entered payments. In addition, the ability to make check number mandatory for check payments is also included.
Thresholds were put in place to give Administrators the ability to control the dollar amount (both debit and credit) of OCCs employees will be allowed to enter. A message will display if an OCC is entered outside of an employee’s default range.
Accounting Master 18.2 enhancements
MACC has provided its users with an efficient tool for tracking CPE inventory issued to a customer. This can be most effectively accomplished through the Network Inventory Interface (NII). Items that are returned from a customer’s account also need to be tracked. If that item is in working condition MACC provides an option to return the item back to inventory. This process has been enhanced to provide extended options.
Manual Transaction Entry
MACC’s inventory module is a robust tool used for the maintenance, movement, and reporting of your company’s items. Inventory can be issued from various applications. The Manual Transaction screen is the main location within the inventory module where users can transfer, issue, retire, receive, adjust, etc. items. In 18.2 MACC has redesigned this screen to focus on the movement of multiple items to the same transaction structure (GL account, work order, date, and period). This enhancement allows one or more inventory items to be selected in a grid to fulfill the transaction.
Statement of Employee Benefits
Employee benefit statements gather information from wages, taxes, deductions, and benefits processed during payroll. In 18.2 additional monetary and non-monetary benefits can be included on the benefit statement. These benefits will represent those advantages that have not been processed during a payroll.
