New Release highlights

  • Skip steps, faster data entry
  • Create Bill of Materials
  • Dashboards


New Features:

Create Bill of Materials-This is phase one of the new kitting module in VISCO.  You are now able to create assemblies in VISCO and designate what components and how many of each component make up that assembly.  This information can be used in documents as well.  Coming in the next release is the build function where the kit can be assembled.

Dashboards-You will notice this new functionality immediately.  Now when users log in they will have a second browser load containing that user’s dashboard items.  Dashboards are graphical representations of reports and alerts for quick and easy access to the most critical information for that user.

Foreign Currency Cost Entry & Accruals-New functionality allowing users to accrue and enter costs in foreign currencies.  Although you have always had the option to buy and sell in foreign currencies, you now have the ability to manage costs and send foreign currency information to the accounting system directly from VISCO.

Automated lot entry and package information entry-have the system create lot numbers for you and enter all of your packaging information, saving you the data entry in initial packing list entry.

Auto-allocation from Container Information screen-Skip the allocation step by having the system auto allocate based on pre-allocation or just pull from the oldest inventory automatically.  This will save data entry time for users shipping direct from customers or users wanting to auto fill back orders.

Access to Exchange Rates (SO and PO Prep)-Easier access to modify exchange rates on Sales Orders and Purchase Orders by managing the exchange rate directly from the Purchase Order and Sales Order preparation screens (Note-this will only appear if the user has permission to modify exchange rates.)

Add Links to external websites or places in VISCO from scan-This may take some creative vision to take advantage of, but you can now link to external websites or link to any other screen in VISCO (including specific records) from a scan.

Order full containers-Save money by ordering full container loads.  The system can help you calculate your total CBM and weight for each PO to help ensure that you are ordering the optimal qty’s to utilize container space.
