Edited by Marketing Department

Mago4 is enriched with new reports for the receipt and shipment of goods and offers even more tools to monitor the activity of warehouse employees.

The PreShipping List by Customer, which is introduced with the new release, allows you to view a summary report of the progress of deliveries for customer. In this way, it is possible to filter the query by Document Number, Item, Period, Customer and/or Shipping Address, thus displaying the percentages of Generated, Confirmed Transfer Orders and Generated Delivery Documents by extracting the data in order of Customer code.

Moreover, with the Supplier Order Barcode report it is possible to print the Supplier Order number in barcode format. The barcodes usually speed up the process of completing the documents reducing the scope for error; the advantage in Goods Receipt is that of having the certainty of the Order reference, streamlining the entire process of Goods Entry and guaranteeing a correct generation of administrative documents. Also in terms of WMS Transfer Orders Control, the WMS module of Mago4 2.4.5 makes inventory management even more efficient. Thanks to a new report, in fact, it is possible to have a precise control of the activity of warehouse workers, monitoring all the main activities (Picking, Positioning and Goods Receipt).

In addition to these new reports, the Mago4 WMS 2.4.5 enhances the activities related to the shipment of goods, thanks to new procedures and an increasingly precise management of the Pre-Shipping document.

The process of preparing the goods for deliveries requires ever greater flexibility and efficiency to meet all the requirements related to the goods shipment and to make the goods deliveries on individual Customers ever more efficient. With Mago4 2.4.5, there are interesting improvements for two important functions: the first called TO Assignment by Shipping and the other one called TO Reassignment by Shipping, for which it is now possible to proceed with the TO grouping by shipment. The TO Assignment Procedure by Shipping allows you to assign the Team or the Resource to the Transfer Orders grouped by Customer/Delivery Branch, with the possibility of also displaying the detail of the individual Transfer Orders. The TO Reassignment by Shipping procedure is instead particularly useful to ensure that the shipment process of the goods does not present any solution of continuity. Think about the case in which the TO employees arrive at the end of the shift without having completed them: the Reassignment procedure allows the inventory manager, or whoever is responsible, to reassign the transfer orders to the duty staff.

That is not all: with Mago4 2.4.5 all the TO generated for the preparation of the shipment can be cancelled more easily through new features present in the toolbar.

Those dedicated to streamlining WMS processes are just some of the improvements in the new release 2.4.5 of Mago4. You can find the complete list in the release notes in the Reserved area. You can download them from your personal area on the Microarea’s website; to download and install the update, we advise you to contact your Reseller who will guide you through the process.

We have already mentioned in this blog the main feature of the 1.4 release of your ERP Mago4 (here the dedicated post), which is the management of Quarterly VAT Statement. The communication is via the Zucchetti Digital HUB service, which includes and integrates the sending of Electronic Invoice; Digital Communication can in fact be managed with on-site FATEL / CADI server services or on line Digital Hub "FATELW / CADIW": according to the activation key you can only use FATEL, CADI or both.

As for Agents, for example, Mago4 1.4 adds a new type of commission maturity in order to update it at the time the invoice is fully collected. Regarding CONAI, the new release of Mago4 apply an update that incorporates the contribution diversification for plastic packaging, established to promote the use of more recyclable packaging, connecting the contributory level to environmental impact.

With Mago4 1.4, Combined Nomenclature is introduced in Active / Passive Cycle documents, especially for non-EU customers / suppliers, even when the Intrastat lists have not to be generated. To be always aligned to the market requests, in Mago4 1.4 the Combined Nomenclature field is now editable on both sales and purchases documents. Also, it is automatically proposed for all customers and suppliers on the basis of the Item Master Data. Moreover, starting from Mago4 1.4 it is possible to obtain the print in language of the document also for the Supplier Quotation, in addition to all other documents where this option was already considered.

Another major change concerns the WMS Mobile. In the last times, the WMS Mobile application has been integrated with many functionalities that have increased application loads, resulting in performance declines ... so with Mago4 1.4 the new WMS Mobile is born! We have a new version of Mago4’s application for the handhelds that maintains all previous functionalities and adds other ones. WMS-Mobile is now faster, more reactive and solid, guaranteeing a more flexible communication based on the web technology.

Now let's take a look at the Romanian scenario. In order to satisfy the needs of the market, in the Warehouse of Mago4 1.4, the Accounting Type has been added on the FIFO/LIFO Loads. This option can be used during the generation of the inventory accounting and it represents a further items categorization. This implementation is due to the request to define a different Accounting Type for the same item, for example diversifying the accounting account for produced and purchased items.

Also for Romania, Mago4 1.4 provides generation of XML file for VAT Declaration 300, a periodic notification of VAT settlement that must be sent to the Romanian revenue agency via XML file. Mago4 processes the data extracted in the reports, generates the xml file and prints the statement on an official template; The file can then be sent directly to the revenue agency.

Those listed are just some of the improvements made by Mago4's 1.4 release. You can discover them all by referring to the release notes in the Private Area of Microarea website, Section My Mago4.

As always, we recommend that you download the release 1.4 by requesting the intervention of your reference reseller.

Stock availability is an important budget item. In this context, the inventory accounting, that is the collection of assets movements, is crucially important in determining the qualitative and quantitative composition of the company's inventories and their control. Effective warehouse management must indeed keep track of quantities and stock movement: this allows you to monitor your remaining goods, stocks already ordered but not yet received and goods subject to quality control.

In Mago4, the module devoted to these aspects (Mago4 Inventory Accounting module) allows you to record inventory transactions with appropriate accounts, values and compensation: whenever a transaction occurs, Mago4 updates the inventory value, records costs and corresponding budget accounts. , This allows you to know the availability of the items at any time of the activities and to manage stocks and inventories according to the most appropriate approach to your needs, properly valuing your company’s asset.

Mago4's Inventory Accounting is one of the features that make your ERP a solution with a strong international vocation: just think that the module was born following the first localization of Mago, created for Hungary in 2004. Given the importance of its functionality for many countries, the field of Mago4 Inventory Accounting influence has been expanded to allow proper management in different Nations; today the module is available for Hungary (optional and available in Console), Poland, Romania and Bulgaria (in the last three countries it is included in the Warehouse Management). The analysis of potential markets for expansion abroad has also revealed that the United States and Germany use this type of management to account goods movements: it is therefore easy to see how the Inventory Accounting functions are essential for all companies wishing to move on the international stage. For example, it is not foreseen for countries such as Italy and Switzerland, as they do not need to post each warehouse entry in the accounting process, but normally run the inventory valuation at the end of the year.

The main strength of Mago4's Inventory Accounting is represented by the flexibility of management, along with the ease of use it can offer you.

The fully parameterizable module structure is capable of adapting to various contexts and thus to the various inventory transactions that a company can carry out. No less important is the use of symbols, which allows flexible accounts management to be used in accounting records. The symbols, in fact, point to a proposition priority scale of the accounts, starting from the more detailed records to the parameters’ generic ones. The use of formulas also allows flexible accounting of the values contained within a warehouse movement (often the value to be reported depends on the type of movement and the context in which it is inserted).

All this with a full ease of use: by uploading default data, Mago4 pre-sets predefined templates with pre-defined symbols and formulas based on the known accounting requirements for major stock transactions and for each country. The automatic generation and updating of accounting records takes place not only from stock movements but also from sales and purchase documents.
