Few Updates…

The Software has been updated to optimize and give better experience of performance.

In Reports->Automation Analysis module earlier the Lost Customer used to take lot of time to generate report, now it is optimized to give faster result with accuracy.

Reports->Inventory->Stock/Product Ledger-><Stock Ledger>. Pressing <Stock Ledger> button used to ask a question, which was confusing and people used to get misled and not decide whether to click yes/no. Now software automatically decided it needs to be ReProcessed or give report from last processed. In fact you can now over-ride to Re-Process the data to give updated result. Earlier it used to take lot of time to process all the items sometimes even 15-30 minutes, Now it is optimized and gives result lightening fast and almost instantly. In-fact now one can generate daily stock movement report without wasting any time.

Reports->Accounts->Ledger Accounts is also optimized to automatically decide if it requires to fetch the data again. If you do not change the Date selection period and ledger that you want to print but wish to select different format would earlier reprocess every time you chose to select different format or just plan to print ledger with Narration or without, but now it will instantly print the result if you choose to view report with different combination of choice.

Reports->Sales->Sales Analysis is also updated to allow you to export only monthly summary data, which earlier would export all the transaction for the selected month(s) and would take too long depending on the number of transactions, now warns you of time it would take and omit exporting transactions detail thereby finishing task swiftly.

Reports->Sales->Sales Register (Credit Sales), which earlier allowed you to select only specific month, now allows you to select any period for all or selected customer and may be get details of all the bills of a particular customer in entire year and so on….

User Access Changed to Revoke Edit/Delete Records.

6th Nov, 2012

Important Security Fix to Protect Editing and Deletion of Transaction by Users.

Now, you can disable your users from editing or deleting of transactions by Revoking Edit/Delete rights through Employee Master as shown in below given screen.

Apply / Revoke Edit/Delete rights for Users

Apply / Revoke Edit/Delete rights for Users

Just Click on <List of Employees>and Click on the Name of Employee in the Grid and Click on Edit to Change the Access Rights for the Employee.

On Removing the <CheckBox> Edit/Delete Records the Employee logging with his/her username, password will not be able to edit or delete any record for any Master or Transaction.

The Employee to whom the rights are given and Default Admin user will be able to edit or delete records.

Other Changes Include, change of background color for the row/record which you wish to edit/delete is now same for all the modules, which was not visible earlier in various modules. Also Edit/Delete button is now Switched On and Off correctly on Single Click and Double Click through out all the modules.

* Also Customer Selection by Name in Slip Entry is fixed to select the Customer by Name if set in Configuration Screen instead of Default selection by Account Number.

Now, you can easily find the difference in Sale as per Meter Reading and as per the sale entered through Slip/Indents/Coupons.  Ideally, you Sale as per Slips should tally with the Meter Sale, but if there is any descripancy then so far it was difficult to find the mistake in particular day/date/shift. With the New Tab introduced in Report->Sales->Sales Analysis, now you can easily find the descripancy in a particular month with just a single click as shown below:

Meter Sale v/s Slip Sale

Meter Sale v/s Slip Sale

Just Click on Meter Reading Tab on Top Left.

then Click on the Particular Month for which you wish to View descripancy, if any.

then Click on <Daily Meter Sale vs Slip Sale> Tab next to <Daily Meter Sale – Itemwise > to see the date wise descripancy.  If there is any descripancy then you will see it in the last Column <Diff>.

Ideally, the Diff should be 0.00 or at most less than Rs.1.00, but if the diff is in thousands then either of the following:

Either the Auto Cash Sale entry for the day / shift is not entered

or

There may be a change in selling rate in slip as against the rate in Meter Entry

or

The Slip sale is entered or edited after the Auto Cash Sale is done and so on.

Ledger code can now be Edited/Updated!

Version 2.1.55

Since, quicksoft ArtRMPP – petrolpump management software is creating separate database for each year, at times there are issues relating to ledger synchronization and this feature update is to handle that issue.  There are pros and cons of having separate database file for different accounting years. With separate database for each accounting year there is a safety of data, it is also faster to work on less amount of data for the chosen year as compared to several years data to be queried. From statutory point of view also it is advisable to not allow to edit/update balances or stock after the finalization of balance sheet and so on.

However, when new year gets created ArtRMPP software allows to transfer all the ledger and item stocks to new year on 31st March or 1st April of next year so that one can start working in the new year immediately and avoid back-log. By practice, the provisional trial balance is carried forward to new year on 1st April as some expense voucher, journal entries and adjustment entries are being posted at a later date, even some provisional and outstanding entries are required to be posted over a period of time.

So far, it was not possible to assign code to ledger by users as it was protected and automatically assigned by system.  But because new ledgers are created in new financial year as well as previous financial year, which lead to descripancy.

We will explain above with an example: Let’s say accounting year (1-4-2011 – 1-4-2012) had 235 ledgers, which when carried forward to (1-4-2012  to 31-03-2013)  all the 235 ledger gets carried forward and if there are no new ledger codes created in either of year then there is no problem in again carrying forward closing balance from previous years database, which is possible through Administration->Update Oepning Balance from Previous Year (closing balance) option.

The problem was when in the new year say a New customer ABC is created, which automatically get 236 ledger code assigned and similarly in previous year say a ledger required to be created say OUTSTANDING EXPENSES… which also get ledger code 236, so when user updates opening balance from previous year the wrong balances get carried forward for ledger code 236 as ledger ABC would have balance of OUTSTANDING EXPENSES… With Version (2.1.55) you can now create new ledger with ledger code of your choice and even edit the existing code to new ledger code of your choice and system will change ledger code for any existing data in the system as shown below:

ledger code validation

ledger code validation

In fact, user need not worry about new ledger code, as system automatically assigns new available ledger code as earlier, but simply allows user to edit/change which earlier was not available.

Ideally, in the New Financial Year, one should create just one ledger with value 1001 instead of 236 as the first new ledger to be created and after that all new ledgers will be created with ledger code 1002, 1003, 1004… and so on. So, when you update opening balance from previous year all the new ledgers created in previous year 236,237,238… will automatically get transferred correctly without any problem.

SMS Templates introduced.

24-May-2012

As per the latest notification issued by TRAI (Telecom Regulatory Authority of India) i.e. on 5th September 2011,  which will govern telemarketing in India including SMS, voice and data.

The new TRAI regulation gives the guidelines for sending Information to its    customer(s)

  •        i. in Transactional mode: 24×7
  •       ii. in Promotional mode: 9:00am to 9:00pm

For Sending SMS in Transactional mode it is mandatory to register the template for sending message with the service provider.  Therefore new SMS template is introduced in the Administration->Configuration Screen->SMS Tab.

Also the Utilities->Mail Merge screen is now changed to select the template using which the SMS needs to be sent. User can now create Excel sheet containing the columns namely, Mobile No, Dynamic Text1, Dynamic Text2 to store the dynamic text to be sent to different mobile numbers and import the same by clicking the <Import Excel> button in Import Contact frame.

Earlier Bank Rconcilliation module (Reports->Accounts->Bank Reconcilliation) required user to Click on <Update / Reconcile> button to save the cheque clearance flag marked by user for the selected Bank/Month before printing the Report.

Also, there was a glitch as reported by customer. When a Cheque for lets say April was marked as cleared in May and when coming back to April, it was not showing as cleared instead of Uncleared is now fixed.

Ledger Printing: 

New, Checkbox introduced for omitting the ledger for printing, having no transaction for the selected period and opening and closing balance being ‘0’. Also the code is optimized to print ledger faster than earlier.

 

Dynamic Purchase Register.

New Purchase Register format introduced, Just click on  Reports->Purchase->Billwise Purchase Register to see new options for the purchase register as shown in the image below:

System Date format dd/MM/yyyy introduced.

Effective from 1st March, 2012, ArtRMPP now accepts and allows to install the software without changing system setting to MM/dd/yyyy format as was mandatory prior to 1st March, 2012. Earlier, user was required to go to Control Panel -> Regional Settings -> Customize -> Date -> Short Date Format to be set as MM/dd/yyyy, because that was the default date format for storing the dates in MS-Access. This was really cumbersome and strong reason for rejection by user to use ArtRM as they had to manage and swtich between dd/MM/yyyy (for Tally and some other software) and MM/dd/yyyy format for ArtRMPP.

With Public demand, we have made all effort to manage the date setting in the software and not penalize customer to manage above date settings. Now user can freely use any system date setting of their choice. The software will work perfectly with dd/MM/yyyy or MM/dd/yyyy or dd/MMM/yyyy or yyyy/MM/dd format or any other format without any problem.

Cheers!!!
