Flex XD is a MAJOR expansion of the features available in SouthWare Extended Data. Flex XD combines and expands several “best of” features from Extended Data and Notes:
With this most recent update - SouthWare has added a new SWPDF printer called SWPDFL. This printer id works like printing to SWPDF except the print orientation is set to landscape.
Also with this update, when you setup a new printer and choose the device id of SWPDF or SWPDFL you will have the option to select the output folder and name along with asking for the filename and automatically opening the PDF document.
SouthWare has added some built-in tools to help you resolve common conflicts caused by locked records.
To ensure data integrity in SouthWare files, when a data record is being changed by a user it is locked so that only one user at a time may change the same record. When you run a process such as End of Day it updates numerous records. If another user has accessed one of those records in the maintenance or entry program and locked it for changing, the process will be paused on the record it can’t update. The update process cannot continue until the record is unlocked by the other user. In some instances a user leaves their workstation with a record locked. Resolving this can take time if you don’t know who has the record locked.
New tools are now available to help with this issue:
SouthWare Accounts Payable now provides you with the option to pay vendors and employees through ACH Direct Deposits. ACH (Automated Clearing House) is an electronic network for financial transactions to process large volumes of credit and debit transactions in batches, including direct deposit, payroll, and vendor payments.
Below is an example of a setup for processing a vendor payment:
Below is an example of a setup for processing an Employee payment:
The benefits of ACH include convenience, better security, and reduction in costs for you. Contact your SouthWare Solutions Partner for more information on ACH Direct Deposit processing.
Your SouthWare solution has to be current on CMSS through 6/30/19 to access the new ACH functionality.
NOTE: if grids are turned off, or in a character-based environment, the manager functions as it did before the changes. The one exception is on a Windows workstation, the display feature uses Print Preview as the default.
