Welcome Spring!!!!!

 Spring Flowers

The smell of fresh blooming flowers and seeing the trees in bloom always gives the feeling of a new beginning.   Just as spring is a new beginning , TIW 's announcement of their new release has many new features, new modules and a new product to give you the tools to grow your business!!!

 

Announcing the release of ALERE Accounting Version 7.0 !!!!
The new release introduces two new modules and a new product! The two modules are the Commission and the  DRP (Distribution Resource Planning) Modules. The new product is call Data Acquisition!!!!!
ALERE Accounting
Commissions
The Commission module can manage the sales commissions process allowing you to designate who is eligible to earn commissions.  Rules can be established by a specific sales representatives, a group of representatives, or all of them, by a specific item or a group of items, or by a specific customer  or group of customers. The system determines who has earned a commission and calculates the amount. A payable can be created for those companies or individuals that are not receiving payment through a payroll system. 
What is the DRP Module?

The DRP (Distribution Resource Planning) Module is utilized in determining what is needed to replenish inventory at warehouses based on what is in stock along with the current and future demands.  Sales orders can be planned to check if there is sufficient inventory on hand to meet their requirements. A list of purchase orders is recommended.   How will this help my business?  This module will reduce the need to manually create purchase orders in order to keep inventory stock up to required levels.

Data Acquisition

ALERE ScannerData Acquisitions integrates into both the ALERE Accounting and Manufacturing.  A simple SCAN Button on the Sales and Purchase screen activates the scanner. The scanning is done in real time and is interactive with the operator through a "prompt" process. Item locations, lot numbers and serial numbers are supported.  Items can be scanned into the entry of a sales order, utilized in shipping or transferring items from one warehouse to another, or the receiving of items on a purchase order.  All scanning is done in real time thus allowing for accuracy and immediate validation!

 

What type of scanners can be used?

  • A wedge scanner or wireless scanner to ALERE via a workstation
  • Scanners utilizing Terminal Services are also accommodated!! Scanners using Terminal services operate as a single user.
What is new in the existing modules?

Google Maps

 

Google Locator - the ALERE Companies screen view allows a photo of a company using Google maps! Find directions to a company's location, find directions between two companies or send directions on how to get to your company.

 

Label Generation - create labels for customers or suppliers!
 
Mass Processing - The mass invoicing screen in the Sales Modules has been expanded to two additional functions. The first function allows all sales type orders  that are unreleased or pending to be reviewed, selected and then mass released as an active order.    The second allows a list of customer statements to be created, reviewed and then mass emailed. This process could be a considerable savings for your company and would eliminate the monthly printing, envelope preparations, and postage  expenses normally incurred with delivering customer statements.
