Generally speaking,the Administrative area has been up-to-date, as is mandatory, with the regulations of the various countries localized by Mago4 ERP. Moreover, the past year saw the birth of new features implementations and advanced tools for Logistics and Manufacturing, reporting tools and the "core" development of your ERP.

Mago4 certainly does not stop here! Also for next year your ERP has many new features planned: so it's time to renew the 2018 appointment on this same blog, taking the opportunity to wish everyone Happy Holidays!




Reporting StudioTeam

The key tool for reporting today boasts a team entirely dedicated to it.

Edited by Marketing Department

Everyone knows the importance of an effective reporting system to improve business, a tool that is at once functional and user-friendly. Many will also know that Reporting Studio, the sophisticated reporting system already integrated with Mago4 and that is used by the applications developed with TaskBuilder Studio, meets all these requirements, equipping the company with an absolutely transversal report maker, able to answer any need in every business area.

On the contrary, there will be few people who know the existence of the newly-created Team Reporting Studio, dedicated to this powerful reporting tool.

The new team is currently composed of 6 people, including programmers and analysts, who are concerned with making the instrument grow and that have been chosen by the technical management to devote themselves to the development of the new  interface of Woorm (the historical report generator, prior to the birth of the Mago4 suite).

The team is growing, not only in numbers but also in relation to the individual knowledge and skills, aiming to make Reporting Studio the report maker par excellence, placing it amongst the competitors on the reference market.

In addition to the development of the tool, the team aims at a total and strategic proactivity, tending to a close collaboration with partners. Aimed at meeting needs, and not limited to an aseptic customer-supplier relationship, the partnership then exploits the classic channels provided to interact with partners: participation in the community, receiving proposals and suggestions, feedback and follow-up.

Focused on maintaining the current version and developing the second release of the product, the team Reporting Studio holds important plans for the future.

Our advice to learn more is just one: stay tuned!

Release 2.0 of Mago4

From the beginning of the month the 2.0 release of Mago4 is available, with improvements in every functional sector and a step towards the future ... in the cloud.

Edited by Marketing Department

The main innovations introduced by the release 2.0 of your ERP Mago4, as well as the minor interventions, concern all the functional areas, and the menu.

In the Financials area, for the Romania localization, Mago4 introduces the management of issued checks and promissory notes, with which it is possible to pay suppliers. This issuing procedure allows not only to issue one or more checks or promissory notes, but also to use previously created blank checks / promissory notes, or to transfer a check / promissory note received from a customer to a supplier.

The Logistics introduces the reading of variable weight barcodes, useful for managing codes that also contain a variable weight / price. The forms are now available in language, with tabulated shipping information and description based on the reference dictionary. In addition, Mago4 makes available to all countries a specific Lots traceability report, to highlight expiring articles.

There are also many innovations in the Manufacturing area: from the possibility of loading on intermediate routings steps, to selecting the withdrawal deposit for a particular component, up to the setting of a Scrap and Second rate default code, going through the improvement of subcontracting, the progress of work phases and the management of the accounting type in production in Romanian localization.

In this trend lies the main value of the new Mago4 ERP release: it represents a sort of bridge to the future of Mago4 in the cloud, thanks to a technologically advanced reinterpretation for many M4 suite tools. An approach that provides a back-end technology oriented to the cloud, which will follow in the next releases, while still maintaining the philosophy and compatibility of the desktop tool. In this evolution, all the tools with which you are equipped follow you, breaking down previous constraints and bringing new management objects.

To learn more, you can consult the release notes of the new version of Mago4; remember that, as always, it is also available all the support provided by the Help Center.

Sincronizzazione Mago4 Infinity

The new Web Monitor is an innovative and technologically advanced tool, able to guarantee constant, total control over the sharing of data between your Mago4 ERP and Infinity ... wherever you are.

Edited by Marketing Department

Both I.Mago, as well as Mago4 integrated with Infinity, represent an operational configuration that extends your ERP and allows you to have perfectly synchronized work environments, with congruent data and punctual information, always available, on the status of synchronizations between Mago4 and Infinity Zucchetti.

We have already dealt with the crucial issue of synchronicity between systems: when you begin to create an integrated environment from scratch (made up of either Mago + Infinity or I.Mago), one of the preliminary operations is precisely the so-called "massive synchronization". It is this procedure that allows Infinity to "know" Mago4's data; in practice thousands of customers, suppliers, articles and many other elements are synchronized by Mago towards Infinity, thus forming a sort of common ground on which to operate.

Massive synchronization, however complex, is totally automated and perfectly monitored ... today more than ever!

Thanks to the new Web Monitor you can check at any time the progress of the "massive", both from the core of Mago, through the appropriate menu item, either opening any browser and connecting to the page published by the same Web Monitor (with a URL which, for example, will look like this: http: // my_server_mago: 5015 / SynchroMonitor).

The new Monitor is a web application that uses the latest technologies in the sector - it is in fact developed in .net Core and Angular4 - and is designed to be seamlessly integrated with the Mago4 Data Synchronizer.

What are the advantages of the Web Monitor? It is easy to say. Just think of the convenience of being able to examine the situation, not only from anywhere on the corporate network, but also from outside, simply by configuring the visibility of this page from the Internet. Indeed, to consult the information is not even necessary to install Mago4! Of course, if you are - as it were - "on board" of Mago4, Web Monitor is able to offer you even more: thanks to the appropriate button, you can access all related management information. Increasingly, integration and collaboration between extended ERP, Mago4 and the Infinity world are expanding and consolidating, to enhance your ERP by implementing features that go beyond those of a simple ERP and facilitate every aspect of your business.

Do you want to know even more? Please contact your dealer reference, or visit the I.Mago website and request information.

Close Up

The ERP Mago4 can make your company save time and costs while improving performance. Today we explore the Accounting functionality of Mago4 specific for the generation of down payments.

Edited by Marketing Department

There are many advantages deriving from the management of the Administrative area with the ERP Mago4. First of all, the certainty of data integrity, guaranteed by the coexistence of documents in a single database, which unifies the data and reduces errors and duplications. Moreover, with Mago4, accounting is fully integrated within the company system. All documents and transactions are controlled real time by the administrative department that can check for accuracy and compliance with standards. Last but not least, time saving: once configured, Mago4 is able to perform a series of automatic entries that no longer require your intervention, so the administration can concentrate on more strategic aspects.

Based on the above, we now see what is the Mago4 approach to the issue of advance payments, for which you can find a specific feature starting from Clearing. Mago4 Clearing tool, as well as allowing you to pay and / or partially collect installments and register rebates or roundings if the collected amount is lower or higher, offers you a further benefit: the possibility of generating advances for surplus.

In practice, whenever you collect or pay more than the amount due, the program considers the difference as a rounding, regardless of the deviation; alternatively, by setting the related entries parameters, it may also consider the surplus as a new down payment. In this sense you can define the minimum amount for the generation of the down payment, by configuring the appropriate parameter, distinguishing it for receipts and payments.

The Clearing is active in all postings that use an accounting model that closes the payment schedules; it is also possible to access it directly from the menu, starting from the Customer / Supplier Clearing procedure (which is available also without the Financials module).

Want to know more about specific Mago4 features? Are you interested in understanding which features are most suited to the needs of your business? You can trust your reference retailer with confidence; also remember that the Help Center can always be consulted from the website www.microarea.it.
