QQube - Release 4

This is a major release with added functionality in the following areas:

  • Inventory enhancements
  • Additional financial reporting capabilities
  • New fields for existing subjects
  • New LOOKUP subjects
  • Advanced calendar features
  • Improved diagnostic tools and underlying functionality
  • Better support for Terminal Services
  • More report examples
  • Overhauled documentation and self-help materials 

Inventory Enhancements

Lots and Serial Numbers are now available in the Inventory, Sales and Purchasing Subjects - including by site.  What is unique about the QQube implementation, is that each serial number - and lot - is shown as one number/lot per line. (QuickBooks allows entry of multiple serial numbers per transaction line, making it difficult to get precise reporting)

Consumption based reporting is available for both historical and forecasting purposes.  QQube accurately delineates the items within the assemblies that exist on Sales Orders and what was consumed through historical transactions.

U of M Dimension (for Enterprise Users only). Use this to convert units on transaction line details.

Transaction Vendor Custom Fields. Custom fields used on Purchase Orders now available.

 

Additional Financial Reporting Capabilities

52/53 Year and Fiscal Year are now available for General Ledger Detail including the ability to report by 13 week periods, (typically used by restaurants).

Group Linked Transactions in the General Ledger Detail. This is a feature found in NO other accounting application and unique to the QQube Technology.  Using a Master Linking Number, you can group invoices and applied payments/credit memos, or bills and bill payments.

New Fields for Existing Subjects

Job Cost calculated columns for Materials and Labor are now available in the Job Cost Subject.  This is particularly useful for Pivot Tables where calculated fields have limitations - and for those who use QuickBooks as it was intended.  Materials represent inventory, non-inventory, and assembly items.  Labor includes service items.  These columns are available for estimate, cost and income transactions.

Effective payroll date (enterprise only) - is added to the Payroll Subject.

 

New LOOKUP Subjects
