From electronic invoicing to WMS, discover the new features introduced by the release 2.5 of Mago4.

Edited by Marketing Department

There are many new features of this version of Mago4, among which the most important are the updates in the field of electronic invoicing, a topic that has been constant for some time now. In addition, a new vertical application to WMS is available, which allows you to keep up with the updates.

We will then get to the heart of the matter for an overview of the most relevant news. The release 2.5 introduces the management of the percentage also in the formula discounts: through a special parameter you can generate XML that show the formula discounts no longer as a discount amount, but as individual discounts expressed in cascade. This improvement therefore allows you to minimize the rounding due to 2-digit decimal rounding of the discount expressed on the lines of the document.

As far as documents in foreign currency are concerned, the generation of electronic documents has been brought into line with the directives of the Revenue Agency: in fact, the regulations require that tax-relevant amounts are always expressed in Euros but that it is possible to indicate the value in foreign currency of each line; however, it is still possible to forbid the generation and transmission of electronic documents in Currency.

That's not all, on the contrary: Passive Invoicing is also equipped with an Asynchronous mode, which requires communication with the Digital Hub for downloading invoices to be fully delegated to the service installed on the Mago server and called ERP Service Provider (ESP). Instead, the functions of registration, connection and disconnection of an already registered document continue to be performed immediately.

One of the most anticipated and important improvements is the one called File System Assisted Accounting. In practice, with the activation of the appropriate module Passive Electronic Invoicing (without DH), you can acquire the electronic documents received without having signed a contract with the Digital HUB Zucchetti. The xml and metadata files received by the Interchange System, for example via certified electronic mail, and manually inserted in a folder on the file system will be loaded by the management system and made visible in the Passive Electronic Invoicing procedure.

As already mentioned, in the WMS area, with the new release the WMS Application was born, which includes the WMS Base, Advanced WMS, Mobile WMS and Mobile WMS Manufacturing modules. This new vertical allows the user to easily and quickly update all the modules of WMS without having to update the entire system. It will be sufficient to install the WMS vertical to obtain all the new features published in the WMS. The activation of the modules remains unchanged, they will continue to be activated by the Administration Console under the Mago section, so as not to require a reactivation for users who are already using these modules.

With Mago4 2.5 there are significant news also in the field of Warehouse. In particular, to facilitate the crucial management of the inventory process, a new Inventory document has been created that can be saved and resumed at a later date. Moreover, for those in possession of the Mobile WMS, it is possible to import the list of items to be inventoried from Mobile. The Inventory Adjustment procedure has then been made scheduleable, allowing the automatic import of one or more files with a smart name, where the name of the file defines the Deposit to be corrected.

The news doesn't end here: there are many other significant projects concerning the other management areas...you can find out everything about Mago4 2.5 by consulting the release note that you can find in the Reserved Area on the Microarea portal.

We also remind you that the release 2.5 of Mago4 is as always downloadable for free if you have kept your Live Update service active; we recommend that you contact your dealer for installation. If the update service is not active, please contact your dealer and discover the advantages of being always updated.
