ACCPAC Plus
Version 7.0 Enhancements

 Windowing System Manager

Introducing ACCPAC Plus Windowing System Manager 7.0, the new Plus that guards your accounting data with tight security control.

Individual User Security

You asked for tighter security control, and we heard you loud and clear. With Windowing System Manager’s completely re-engineered, powerful security features, you can:

·         Check for attempted security violations and last successful sign-on

·         Add/delete or make users inactive

·         Add/modify/delete groups

·         Set passwords and define password life

·         Print security reports

 

You can define individual access rights for as many as 400 users. For easy management of different groups of users, you can also create up to 100 user groups and classify users into one or more of these groups.  Access rights to all menu items and System Manager options are fully customizable for each user and each group.

 

System Manager also provides a comprehensive security log to help you monitor all sign-ons and attempted security violations.

Printer Setup Enhancements

To take advantage of the capability of new network operating systems such as Novell Client32 and Microsoft networks, Windowing System Manager 7.0 supports up to 9 LPT ports. Now you can map as many as 9 different network printers in ACCPAC Plus and use them to print statements, invoices, reports, etc. You can also define up to 25 logical printers for users to choose from as the destination of a print job.

Printer / Report Association Enhancements

Not only can more printers be defined and used, Windowing System Manager 7.0 supports as many as 100 printer associations. Now you can specify the print destination of up to 100 individual reports in each module.

Installing from Substituted Drives

Windowing System Manager 7.0 allows you to install products from any drive, including network drives, CD-ROMs and substituted drives. You no longer have install programs from drive A or B. Now you can download files to any local or network drives, unzip them, and then install.

Importing/Exporting Four-Digit Year Data

To support the highly praised Year 2000 enhancements in 6.5 products, WSM 7.0 contains new CSV and Continuous File formats to handle importing and exporting of four-digit year data.

Currency Finder

As a part of our on-going effort to improve the usability of ACCPAC Plus programs, the currency finder now works with 6.5 ACCPAC applications. If your system is set up to handle multicurrency accounting, you will enjoy the convenience of pressing F5 in any currency field to bring up a list of available currencies.

Improved Performance

WSM 7.0 uses less startup memory than its predecessors so that it is less hardware intensive and more robust.

Compatibility

WSM 7.0 will work with GL 6.1/6.5, AP 6.1/6.5, AR 6.1/6.5, IC 6.1B/6.5, OE6.1B, JC6.1 and  PR6.1D.

Note: System Manager 7.0 requires new Lanpak units in order to work properly in a multi-user environment. These Lanpak units are available as a separate product.


 

 General Ledger

 

Cross-Module Drilldown

Drilldown puts clients’ entire accounting database at their fingertips by letting them retrieve information from other ACCPAC Plus Accounting modules without having to leave General Ledger. For example, if a client wants more detail about an entry in one of his Accounts Receivable GL accounts, he could drill down to the Accounts Receivable module and view the original customer invoice. From there, he could drill to Order Entry to find out what items the customer was paying for. If he then wanted more detail about the items themselves, he could drill to Inventory Control. And it is all done without having to start up each module and manually enter inquiries. (Works with some 6.5 databases, but not fully implemented until all 7.0 modules are available).

 Second Year of History

General Ledger now stores an extra year of data, allowing clients to retrieve and compare information across three years. There are new quick financial report specifications for balance sheets and income statements covering three years of data. In addition, a full set of new specification codes let clients generate a comprehensive range of custom reports.

Audit Security Log

General Ledger’s security receives a substantial boost with the audit security log function. This powerful new feature tracks every database change and records when and by whom it was made. When a client wishes to retrieve this information, he can print a report filtered by user name, date, or activity. So, for example, a client could view all changes that took place over a given period, see what a particular user had been doing, or discover who had been responsible for certain kinds of activity.

Account Mapping

This new function lets clients export account balances under any number of different headings and account codes. This can be used to simplify and consolidate accounts for analysis or reporting purposes, or to prepare them for importing into other ACCPAC Plus Accounting databases.

Other Enhancements

The Display accounts function now has the ability to handle accounts that contain more than 65,530 transactions in any fiscal period. The report date automatically changes with the changing fiscal year.

Mandatory Registration

All products will have forced registration. Procedures will be similar to those in ACCPAC® Corporate Series™ and ACCPAC® Small Business Series™.

 

Compatibility Issues

ACCPAC Plus Accounting General Ledger 7.0 runs on Windowing System Manager 7.0 and is compatible with the current versions of Accounts Payable (6.5), Accounts Receivable (6.5), US Payroll (6.1D), and Canadian Payroll (6.0S).

 Accounts Receivable

Cross-Module Drilldown

Drilldown is now available from the Accounts Receivables Display Customer Transactions function to Order Entry and General Ledger. Drilldown puts your entire accounting database at your fingertips by letting you retrieve information from other ACCPAC Plus Accounting modules without leaving Accounts Receivable. For example, if you want to know how an Accounts Receivable invoice affects your GL account balance, you can drill down to the General Ledger module and view the account details. You can also drill to Order Entry to find out what items the customer ordered-all without starting each module

and manually entering your inquiries.

Recurring Invoice Batches and Recurring Cash Batches

Two new functions have been added to Accounts Receivable 7.0: Create/Archive/Delete Recurring Invoice Batches and Create/Archive/Delete Recurring Cash Batches. These functions save entry time and minimize possible entry errors by allowing you to store regularly recurring invoice and cash batches, and create duplicates of them.

Option to Include Posting Data in Description

This new option enhances flexible information transfer to General Ledger. Now you have the option to include/exclude additional posting data (posting sequence, batch and transaction numbers) when sending information from AR to GL. For example, if you choose to exclude additional data, the information will be sent to General Ledger separately, and the Description column will have only your choice of Customer Name, Document Description, Document Number, or Document Reference in it. If you choose to include additional data, posting data will be included in the Description field, followed by as much description as will fit (available for General Ledger 7.0 and later).

Audit Security Log

Accounts Receivables security receives a substantial boost with the Audit Security Log function. This powerful new feature tracks every change to your database, and records when it was made and by whom. To retrieve this information, you can print an Audit Log Listing report filtered by user name, date, or activity.

Additional Enhancements

-          Better handling of Balance Forward Customers: transactions added after the customer's last account clearing date are reported individually, even if the transactions predated the customer's last clearing date.

-          Auto-generated document numbers have been improved by adding a year digit for Cash batches and Adjustment batches. This ensures uniqueness when history is kept indefinitely.

-          When simultaneously entering invoice and an applied cash payment, you can now automatically generate a payment number by specifying "CASH."

-          The Batch Status Report now includes the posting sequence number for each batch. When running recurring charges you can now separate the on-hold customers to another batch so that the batch can be handled uniquely. You can now exclude the duplicated fully-applied transactions when printing statements.

-          When you use Job Costing 6.5A with Accounts Receivable 7.0A, Accounts Receivable permits the entry of the job, phase, and category in functions that formerly kept only the job number.

-          The error messages generated when importing a file give a better indication of exactly which part of the record is in error.

Mandatory Registration

All Accounts Receivable 7.0 products will have mandatory registration. Procedures will be similar to other ACCPAC Plus Accounting 6.5 and 7.0 versions.

Compatibility Issues

ACCPAC Plus Accounting Accounts Receivable 7.0 runs on Windowing System Manager 7.0 or higher, and is compatible with the current versions of General Ledger and Job Costing.

Recommended System Requirements

Minimum requirements: ACCPAC Plus Accounting Windowing System Manager 7.0 (with Windowing System Manager  Service Pack 2 or higher installed); PC-compatible computer running Windows 95 or higher; one 3.5" diskette drive (1.44 MB); a hard disk with at least 20 MB available; and a 132-character printer. A 220-character printer is required for multicurrency reports.


 

 Inventory Control with Purchase Orders

 

Inventory Control with Purchase Orders is a complete multi-location inventory management/accounting system that keeps track of stock levels and outstanding purchases as well as processes inventory receipts, shipments, returns and adjustments. It includes extensive screen inquiry and reporting functions to give you up-to-date information about quantities, costs and item movement statistics.

 

Cross-module Drilldown

Drilldown is now available from Inventory Control Display Receipts function to Accounts Payable, General Ledger and display Items with Sales and Costs. Drilldown puts your entire accounting database at your fingertips by letting you retrieve information from other ACCPAC Plus modules without having to leave Inventory Control. For example, if you want to know how an Inventory Receipt affects your GL account balance, you could drill down to the General Ledger module and view the account details. You could also drill to Accounts Payable to find out what other transactions the vendor has. This is all done without having to start up each module and manually enter your inquiries.

 

Auto-generate Purchase Order from IC or OE

Generate purchase orders based on inventory counts or on sales orders.

 

Replicate Purchase Order

Create a new purchase order (PO) based on an existing PO.

 

Non-stock item Purchase Orders and Receipts

Inventory Control will now allow you to keep track of the accounts payable of a non-stock item when you do not want to keep track of the inventory count.

 

Audit Security Log

Inventory Control security receives a substantial boost with the audit security log function. This powerful new feature tracks when the database changed, and by whom. When you wish to retrieve this information, you can print an Audit Log Listing report filtered by user name, date or activity.

 

New Reports include:

· Invoice audit report

· Non-invoiced receipts

 

Other Enhancements:

· A warning message alerts you when purging Transaction History.
