Novità WMS

The release 2.4.5 of Mago4 introduces new and very useful reports for an increasingly effective and efficient stock management in WMS.

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. Remember that the update is free if your MLU is active, otherwise you can contact the Reseller and discover the advantages of a constant update.




news for Romania

A new web-based procedure of Mago4 2.4.5 streamlines the stages of verification of VAT status, in accordance with Romanian regulations.

Edited by Marketing Department

The National Agency for Tax Administration (ANAF) is a public body of Romania, operating for the Ministry of Finance. ANAF has the task of collecting taxes, duties and contributions. In December 2018, the web service provided by ANAF was enriched with the addition of useful information to improve the control of the fiscal status of Customers / Suppliers.

What is this about? In practice, the operation of VAT status control is used to verify the validity of a VAT number and to know the type of tax system. This is useful to verify whether a domestic supplier is active or inactive, to validate, or not, the deductibility of VAT, to know if the subject operates under the Cash Accounting regime or under the Split Tax system.

At ERP level, Mago4 has always embraced the Romanian legislation on the issue with a service of verification through a table, whose information was updated by a manual procedure; with the new 2.4.5 release, Mago4 is now able to take full advantage of the web service of ANAF for the control of fiscal status.

In fact, following the introduction of the new status controls on Customers and Suppliers, the verification of whether the supplier is in cash accounting system is now carried out by querying the web service, instead of reading the table above mentioned. Of course, it is still possible to restore the offline check, i.e. by consulting the table that is updated by the procedure Download Cash Tax Companies.For suppliers, a check is also carried out to find out whether the subject is VAT active or deactivated by displaying special messages. In particular, when saving purchase documents and received documents, the notice is obtained in presence of non-deductible documents and a supplier qualified as an active VAT subject or in the presence of deductible documents and a supplier qualified as an inactive VAT subject. Similar messages are displayed in the control report of document for suppliers. For suppliers, a check is also performed on the activation or deactivation of the Split Tax system.

Also with this targeted and specific update for the Romanian market, ERP Mago4 confirms its international orientation by simplifying procedures and aligning itself with the regulations of the reference country.

The one just described is just one of the improvements of Mago 2.4.5; to know all the new features you can refer to the release note in the private area of the Microarea website . The update is available for free download if your Live Update service is active; otherwise contact your local dealer to know the advantages of being always updated!

Your dealer is also available to download and install the upgrade to the new release of Mago4: we recommend that you contact him to perform the upgrade.

German Localization

The German localization extends the functionality of the Financials Accounting Area thanks to the availability of the specific ZM Declaration for the German market.

Edited by Marketing Department

As part of the continuous expansion and diversification of the international functionalities of the Mago4 ERP, one of the current focal points for the EU area is the management of tax returns in Germany.

For this reason, the Financial Accounting Area of Mago4 is further enriched, immediately after the publication of the VAT Settlement Model in release 2.4.4: with the 2.4.5 release, it will also be available the ZM Declaration (Zusammenfassende Meldung Form, or Form for the Summary Declaration) concerning intra-Community sales.

Through a batch procedure, called ZM Declaration, it will be possible to process the declaration itself, to be sent to the Tax authorities, on a file in CSV format; the folder where the file is exported can be indicated in the Accounting Parameters, Declarations tab.

It is important to note that the ZM Declaration can have a monthly (by default), quarterly or annual periodicity.

In the ZM Declaration, Customer VAT number and type of transactions groups intra-Community sales: normal (sales of goods), services and triangulations, where triangulations are sales of goods involving three distinct subjects: seller, promoter and recipient. In the latter case, therefore, the goods travel from the seller to the recipient but the promoter (who generally processes such goods) is the one who invoices the sale to the recipient.

Data generate directly from the sales documents, where the amounts are distinguished between goods and services according to the line type, and a specific option identifies the documents relating to the triangulations.

The procedure also allows a paper print with the cover page and two reports, one to list sales of goods and triangulations to EU customers, the other to list sales of services to EU customers. In each of the two reports, you can check the individual documents that have merged into the Declaration by simply clicking on the amounts.

This further step forward in German localization is part of the Service Pack 5 of Mago4 2.4, the continuously updated Zucchetti ERP, which is natively oriented to the global market.

Please refer to the release notes to learn more and be always updated on this and other product features.
