Multi-Currency Support & Euro compliant
For any customer, supplier or bank you can issue any transaction in any currency.
Herbst Insight will keep separate balances
for each currency plus consolidated balance in the base currency. This system gives you extremely high flexibility and
control over multi-currency accounts and is ready for the complete transfer over to the Euro.
The base currency can in fact be changed at any time.
Triangulation currency rates support and history for currency rates. If you post
a sale invoice for the last year
Herbst Insight will suggest you use the currency rates from that period.
Products Set up
Insight boasts several strong product features - Bill of material functionality, multi-line stock adjustments, stock
revaluations and cross location or internal stock movements, all of which can be easily transacted and monitored.
A product can be a physical good or service and can be identified with a sale, purchase or stock role or a combination of all three.
View Analyse Tool
In addition to all the views throughout the application there is a flexible quick click analysis tool allowing you to
drill down and analyse the data in more depth e.g. a break down of the total value of sales posted on each day.
Increased Security and Full User Rights control
Insight provides the ability to trace user activity, enabling managers to view any data changes made and who made them.
Users rights are extremely flexible and can be configured by the administrator according to the business requirements.
Data can be shared or restricted across the business as required. Herbst Insight also introduces several levels of fences, for
instance an administrator can set up a fence date for a company and there is no activity allowed before this fence date.
Users can also be granted view only or edit rights to specific documents and views.
