Iinfinity 4.0 integrations

Are you ready for perfect integration? With the introduction of Infinity 4.0 there is much to discover.

Edited by Marketing Department

Many people know that Mago has an important and consolidated integration with Infinity Zucchetti to expand the management functions transforming it from "only" ERP, to "extended ERP".

Having an extended ERP means being able to use collaboration tools such as planners, appointments, e-mails from a single integrated system. It allows you to fully manage the phases of searching for new customers and upselling, retaining existing customers, managing negotiations and much more.

You certainly also know I.Mago.

I.Mago is the expression of the maximum integration between Zucchetti products: in addition to offering what has already been said above, it allows you to switch from one environment to another in a completely transparent way thanks to the automatic recognition of the user, display real-time ERP data directly on the virtual desk within a web page; it allows you to unify the sending of the mailing via Mago improving and centralizing the management ... and there is much more, too.

Until a few days ago this was only possible with the Infinity 2.4 platform. Thanks to the latest updates of Mago and the latest Infinity patches, both Mago.net and Mago4 are now certified to integrate with Infinity 4.0. For I.Mago it will be enough to wait until May 31st to enjoy all the benefits of I.Mago in Infinity 4.0 "mode"! Everything is even simpler, beautiful and functional. To see, to try, to use!

If you want more information about I.Mago 4.0, the integration Mago+Infinity or Infinity 4.0, ask your Mago Dealer.



Close Up

Some important updates recently released concern the Digital Communications component for Mago4 and Mago.net, Italian localization.

Edited by Marketing Department

The updates of the Digital Communications for Mago4 and Mago.net contain some improvements for the electronic invoicing, with particular regard to the additional fields required by the Mass Market on the XML layout.

This update provides for a parameterization that allows you to use the Net Price as a Unit Price and, consequently, not to report on the electronic invoice the discount / increase applied to the Unit Value. The choice to hide the discount / increase can be made in general on the parameters of the company or individual customer and affects the XML of all documents subject to electronic invoicing of customers for which the parameterization will be valid.

The component replaces the one already present in Mago4 2.4 and Mago.net 3.14.6, and can be installed according to the procedure described in the HelpCenter.

It is important to remember that installation of the package does not require the updating of vertical or customized modules that may be installed together with the ERP software.

Updates to the Digital Communications component are available in the download area (on the "family" page of the related product) for Mago4 2.4 and Mago.net 3.14.6.

New localization features

In the SP2 of Mago4 2.3 some important implementations are included for Germany and Spain.

Edited by Marketing Department

The Financials area of Mago4 is involved in some specific improvements for German and Spanish markets localizations, confirming the international vocation of Mago4 ERP and its adaptability to every context. As for Germany, the DATEV connector (which we discussed here and which is available from version 2.3, but only for data export from active and passive cycle documents) has been completed with the possibility of transmitting data starting from the accounting records, generating a CSV file in the format required by DATEV software. Therefore, you are now able to manage data export for all transactions of the fiscal year from Mago4 and their communication to the consultant, according to German law.

Regarding the Spain localization, one of the most important improvements of the SP 2 of Mago4 2.3 concerns the Intrastat module. In fact, only imports and exports of goods are managed with Spain localization: therefore, all the data related to the services requested in other countries have been hidden, information to be transmitted concerning the nature of the transaction, mode of transport, delivery conditions have been modified to show only typical Spanish values and, finally, a procedure has been prepared for the generation of the file according to the Spanish technical specifications. Mago4 2.3.2 also modifies the management of the payees. A special feature implemented in this SP allows you to calculate the amount of withholding tax on professional fees, based on the posting date of the fees themselves, rather than based on their payment date. This is because in Spain the withholding tax is due even if the fee is not yet paid: new fields and parameters have been introduced to update the expiry date of the withholding tax based on the posting date of the fee, and to generate the accounting transfer together with the posting of the fee.

In Mago4 2.3.2, many of the projects implemented in the Logistics area have important repercussions also in the Financials area, as in fact it happens for improvements concerning Spain and Germany. For Spain, a new feature sets the most recent Departure Date compared to the delivery note shipped in the Sales Invoice: this allows to transmit to the accounting documents the Operation Date (ie the Departure Date) that can now be used to transmit to the Tax Agency the data necessary for the compilation of the SII (Immediate Supply of Information on VAT). The Purchase Invoice has also been adjusted to bring into account the relevant dates (Operation Date and Tax Accrual Date) as required by Agencia Tributaria. The Operation Date is an information that in Spain is generally declared based on the activity carried out by the companies and on the basis of the moment in which the delivery note are invoiced. Moreover, in the Sales Invoice you can calculate the payment deadlines starting from the Departure Date; in this way it is possible to better meet the needs of the Spanish market, for which - in some product sectors - it is customary to calculate deadlines in this way.

The main implementation for Germany is instead a further improvement of the Skonto management (available from version 2.1 and discussed here). Sometimes it may happen that some items are sold at cost, or the cost of expenses is not charged to customers; therefore, with Mago4 2.3.2 you can decide not to apply Skonto on such items or expenses. To exclude items or expenses from the application of the prepayment discount, a new parameter has been added in Item Master Data, which can be set either on the Sales / Purchase Parameters or on a single document level, with important effects on the receivable management and on accounting posting.

Finally, it is worth mentioning that starting from Mago4 2.3.2 in the procedure of Massive Printing of Documents it is possible to create a single PDF for all the documents processed or to group all the documents of the same customer, sending them as PDFs attached to a single e-mail.

These are just some of the most important improvements dedicated to the foreign market. As always, to learn more you can refer to the release notes available in the Private Area on the Microarea portal. Remember that if you have maintained the MLU service, downloading the SP is free: if not, please contact your local dealer and discover the benefits of being always up to date.




New release Mago4

The latest news of the 2.2 and 2.3 releases concern many countries natively localized by Mago4 ERP.

Edited by Marketing Department

Mago4 is increasingly addressing the international scene. The commitment to meet the specific requirements of many different countries is seamless, then we'll now see the main news introduced by release 2.2 and 2.3 of Mago4.

One of the flagships of the Mago4 ERP is the Brazil localization. With Mago4 2.3 the Electronic Nota Fiscal 4.0 is ready! It will replace the currently used 3.1 model, whose validity will expire on 2 July 2018. The goal of NF-e 4.0 is to simplify the use of electronic invoices for those who need to send these documents. All the new mandatory fields have been included and the calculation of the taxes has been improved and of course, also the security of the service. The most important changes concern existing fields, but there are also new ones, for example, information on the calculation of the tax percentage collected by the Brazilian government in order to provide better life conditions to disadvantaged people (Fundo de Combate à Pobreza- FCP) whose obligation has also been extended to operations within the same state and not only to the interstate ones. On the other hand, new validations concern the traceability of the product and the payment information. Also, the Types of Payment and the respective Transcodings have been added in order to associate the types of payment of Mago with the codes envisaged in the Fiscal Note. Hence, the user can specify the form of payment, such as "cash", "check" or "credit card". In Financial area, Boletos can now be managed also for DAYCOVAL Bank, according to technical specifications.

A strength of Mago4 on the old continent is the latest German localization, to the progress of which the new releases greatly contribute. In addition to improvements in the Finanacials area - providing in Mago4 2.2 an improvement of Product Lines management and a new function to specify taxable and tax amounts in the Tax Summary - a particular news specific to financial transactions is very interesting: the DATEV Connector. In Germany, as well as in other countries, the export of data for all financial transactions relating to a fiscal year and their communication to the consultant within a reasonable time is required. The data must be collected in an electronically readable format, so that they can be imported into a special environment for their review. The requested data usually includes information on the accounts, the transactions of ledger, the VAT codes, the customer, the supplier and the items. In Germany, this data exchange is managed by DATEV which allows to deal with all this information in a rigorous and confidential manner. In order to meet all these requirements and be able to interface with DATEV, Mago4 2.3 has implemented a new module, DATEV Connector, which allows you to export from Mago the information related to the tax documents posted in the purchase and sales modules and import them into DATEV using a .csv file. This file contains all the main information requested by DATEV and supports the requirements regarding the format for exporting and importing data into DATEV.

As for other major countries, the latest Mago4 releases refine the location of Spain, allowing to enter into Customers and Suppliers masters, the Document Type and Number to be used in Tax declarations and in SII - the new model for the electronic management of VAT registers. Moreover, default data include reclassification schemas to print balance sheets with normal or abbreviated format; bills of cash order type can be printed on file according to the proper record layout and Payees module is available for the Withholding Tax management.

Other improvements concern Swiss localization, where the bills management is now available to present, collect and post outstandings of receivables of SEPA SDD Core and SEPA SDD B2B payment type. Such bills will be printed on XML file.

News also for Poland, Romania e Bulgaria: the check report Customers/Suppliers Balancing between Ledger Balances and Payment Schedule Report has been localized in order to detail the accounting balance of each customer/supplier; this allows to detail the accounting balance by accounts of customer/supplier type used in accounting entries and that generated the customer/supplier accounting balance.

Also for Italy there are incisive updates: in the Logistics area of Mago4 2.3, for example, the Packing Producers Declarations Report has been improved in order to make more complete the information concerning the CONAI. A column that shows the percentage of exemption has been added next to the value in tons relative to the quantity field already present in Mago4. The latest realease of Mago4 provides also the review of the printed text in Privacy Statement Letters, in accordance with the GDPR European Law and the update of Tax Settlement Sending procedure in accordance with specifications valid since the first quarter 2018.

Mago4 always more user-friendly! To make it easier for the user to find out what he wants to do in Mago, some menu items have been reviewed. The names of similar procedures have been aligned using the same terminology and the names for the homonymous procedures have been changed so that they can be more easily recognized during the search.

These are just some of the news presented by the last two releases of the Mago4 ERP: as you know, the constant update is one of Mago's main features and you can simply refer to the release notes in the Private Area; to find out everything that is reserved to you. As always, you can download the updates for free if you have maintained the MLU service. Otherwise you can get in touch with your reference retailer to know the advantages of being always up-to-date.

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.
